1950 Jewelcrest by Donald Simpson Australian Brooch
Very little is known about the Jewelcrest Company which produced beautiful costume jewellery during the 1960's period, headed up by its Australian designer Donald Simpson. The quality of each of their beautiful brooches is truly excellent with the use of Swarovski clear crystal stones and superb craftmanship. Each authentic piece signed Jewel Crest within the cartouche. This lovely example is three dimensional with strands of faceted clear crystal tear drop stones forming an elongated flower. Set in to silver tone metal with a firm roll over safety clasp to the back. Overall dimension is 9cms length and 2.5cms across. Beautifully made, has been well looked after since it originated mid century, and gift boxed by Vintageonline. The true beauty of this brooch is hard to capture on photograph.
