This sterling silver and rhinestone brooch features two levels of filagreed petals with a clear rhinestone prong set in the centre. On the petals, the filagree is cut away into leaves, with elongated ovals cuts away in the centre. This allows a lot of light and clothing colour to filter through into the brooch. The back of the brooch is hallmarked as sterling silver and Jay Flex. It's such a pretty brooch!
Condition: This vintage sterling silver and rhinestone brooch is in excellent vintage condition. The clasp is firm and functional and this estate brooch just shows minor wear commiserate with its age.
Shipping costs are the cost of mailing an item, along with any necessary packing/packaging materials. If shipping costs seem high, sometimes they are. When estimating for the purposes of listing an item on Etsy, I have to list the most expensive possible shipping destination in a given country. More expensive items are shipped with tracking and insurance, which adds to the cost. If the difference between my shipping estimate and actual costs are greater than $2, I will refund you the difference.
If you are thinking of purchasing an item, contact me with your postal or mailing code, and I will check the precise shipping costs. For less expensive items (under $50), I am willing to ship by cheaper options, but please be aware that this can extend shipping times by 4 to 8 weeks for international shipping to some destinations.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
