This brooch is made with Pearls artistically designed w/ Simulated Diamond. Cream Pearls in rhodium plated finish gives a great appeal to this brooch. Price of this brooch is unbelieveable. Great for gift giving, the person receiving will not even know the secret that this brooch is so affordable and even you mention the price you paid for this brooch, she may not believe it so a win-win situation for you. Brooch extends almost 1/4 inches past the clasp and is positioned on the brooch in such a way that you can wear it turned various ways. The customer service of the lady I spoke to was so polite and ready to answer all my emails in a timely fashion. I surfed the web for brooches and found many sites with products that either where too pricey or looked cheap then I found this site which not only had a great collection of jewelry but it topped when I saw their Brooch Collection. The collection of brooches they have varies from Animal Brooches, to Crystal Brooches and a vast collection of Pearls brooch that caught my attention.
