B.David Rhinestone Crown Jewelry
What a beautiful vintage rhinestone Crown brooch, it is signed by the artist B.David and they have become very popular as collectible jewelry. His jewelry has withstood the test of time of 50+ years since it was designed in the 1950s, most of David jewelry still looks very nice and the stones still have their luster and sparkle, and most of his jewelry had tiny faux seed pearls. The pastel aurora borealis rhinestones are of the highest quality, and the Crown pin is sought after by collectors, many of the famous designers made a Crown pin.
The B.David company was founded in 1945 and closed their doors in 1993. I have found that not all of B.David jewelry is stamped by the artist, this one is stamped at the very top of the crown on the back, but I have another that is identical that is not signed, plus another I had quite awhile back only had the B. stamped on it, looked as though when they stamped it only half of their name hit the metal. These pins look beautiful on any type of clothing and since the rhinestones are all prong set will hold up and be gorgeous for years to come....
