1950s Brooch Aurora Borealis Circle Sparkle
A stunning late 1950s brooch fashioned in a circle shape. This gorgeous sparkly brooch features lots of aurora borealis glass rhinestones in a gold metal surround therefore it has a high-shine. It fastens with a roll-over safety clasp and pin at the back.
This lovely round brooch is in very good condition; the back shows very minor signs of wear as can be expected with use and age. This is without a doubt a lovely example of an Aurora Borealis brooch.
Measures approximately 4cm in diameter
What is Aurora Borealis?
Aurora borealis is a manufacturing process first invented by Swarovski* in 1956. The process involves adding a thin layer of gold to glass rhinestones. This forms a coating on the outside which resembles many gorgeous iridescent colours, much like that of the natural phenomena Aurora Borealis (which this process was named after).
The use of Aurora Borealis stones and beads in jewellery was immensely popular for ten years. It wasn’t until it the mid-1960s that it fell out of favour. In spite of this, like many aspects of fashion it soon had a huge resurgence in the later years of the last century.
* Swarovski remain one of the most prominent makers of fine rhinestones and Austrian crystals to date!
