Amethyst and Pearl Brooch by Krementz, Circa 1900
ABOUT THIS BROOCH
Diamond, rhombus, parallelogram. Whatever you call this geometric shape, it makes a very pretty showing--three times--in this nifty 1900s brooch by Providence, Rhode Island jeweler, Krementz. The simple, yet striking jewel, features a lozenge-shaped, gleaming bright purple amethyst (15.00 carats!), accented around its perimeter with double frames of luminous seed pearls. Why should clothes have all the fun--try pinning it on a beret, scarf, or even on a headband. Hand fabricated in 14K gold, it measures 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches.
