About the Artist:
Albert Weiss was a jewelry designer in the 1940s and 1950s, and Weiss jewelry designs are valued today for their astonishing style. Weiss jewelry may be marked "Weiss," "Albert Weiss," or "A.W. Co." Many of his pieces are considered collectibles, and each one embodies an unmistakable style. Like most other costume jewelry designed in this era, Weiss jewelry is intended to stand out and augment a women's beauty with shine and design. Weiss costume jewelry is not limited to women who are attempting to create a sensation. A Weiss brooch can be worn today with scarves and sweaters, or to liven up a dark winter coat. As hats are becoming more popular in style, brooches can also be placed on the brim or crown. Also note that a piece of Weiss jewelry can turn bland into sophisticated.
This Weiss-signed pink brooch is a rare, high-quality piece of costume jewelry. All rhinestones in the “Pretty in Pink” brooch, as it was originally and lovingly nicknamed, are prong-set in gold-tone metal. The domed-shaped brooch is in excellent vintage condition, and the signature of “Weiss” has been stamped on the backside of the brooch.
This stunning little beauty would make a great anniversary, birthday or holiday gift for a very special lady. Or, maybe just wow her for no reason at all!
