ornate Prose Mexican silver and amethyst starburst Pin / Brooch

on May 8, 2019 in Mexican and Latin American, Pins/brooches

Nicely cast and rich in ornamental details the Mexican starburst brooch presented here is signed by ProSa and cast in sterling silver. The star is slightly convex and its six rays have a lace-like quality, their point of convergence marked by an oval amethyst cabochon, full of inclusions that glisten when the light hits them. Perfect as a brooch, it wouldn’t be difficult to have it converted to a pendant as well so you can enjoy it with your favorite chain…
