Joan Rivers signed Maltese Cross-style purple, red, blue, & pearl crystal PIN ~collectible, vintage costume jewelry


Shipping to United States: Free

DESCRIPTION: Maltese crosses are some of my favorite pins.
Ms. Rivers adds “CHANEL style” to a classic Maltese Cross brooch with this outstanding pin.

The DOMED piece is dramatic with its oversized Ruby red, Golden topaz, Sapphire blue, & Amethyst purple teardrop/pear-shaped SWAROVSKI crystals.
Flanking the teardrop crystals are round cut, bevel-set, clear crystals.
The center stone, a creamy 18 mm mabe pearl bead, is the perfect compliment.
The crystals are set into highly polished golden tone metal.
The reverse is highly texturized.

Beautiful, collectible piece.

Please purchase with the knowledge that I am NOT a jewelry expert/dealer. I earnestly tried to describe the jewelry to the best of my knowledge through words, photos, approximate measurements, & stone sizes/gm weights.
