Rare and wonderful fine jewellery. Amazing and huge rare vintage solid sterling silver and gemstone statement brooch handcrafted by USA designer Great Falls Metalworks. Beautiful and unusual bunch of three balloons design featuring fine solid sterling silver stems with bow accents and stunning polished cabochon stones: rust-red carnelian, opalescent white chalcedony and dark blue with silver flecks lapis lazuli, each stone is raised/domed with their heights staggered from low to high. Brooch: 6.0 x 7.0 cm. Stones: 1.5 x 1.5 each.

Dome raise: 0.8 cm at highest. Great Falls Metalworks is based in New Jersey, USA and has been creating stunning boutique/specialty fine silver and gemstone jewellery since the 1960's. I believe this to be one of their earlier pieces, approximately 1960's-70's.

This incredible piece is in very good vintage condition with minimal signs of general ageing to silver, the stones are excellent. I have cleaned the brooch gently with a silver cloth and water. Presented in a reusable organic cotton gift bag and packed in small box for protection. Thank you for looking- more beautiful & unique antique, vintage and handmade fine jewellery in store now- browse around.

My goal is to bring you happiness & adornment by finding beautiful and unusual high quality vintage sterling silver jewellery that is not mass-produced and is a bit different/individual-it's also recycling. All pieces are tested (regardless of stamps etc) to ensure they are solid sterling silver (not plated-unless stated otherwise in item description). I hand clean all sterling jewellery with a silver cloth and water so as not to over-clean/strip vintage detailing where applicable. Retro Rain Vintage is a small, individually run business that is based in Newcastle, N. I started this store to share my love of rare and whimsical vintage and preloved jewellery, accessories and clothes (my dream is to one day open a physical store as well :).

For the past 6 years I have concentrated on discovering vintage sterling silver and other fine jewellery as I personally adore it both as a collector and giving it as gifts. I'm always happy to answer queries-just send me a message.
