This is a Lia Sophia brooch or pin in gold tone metal. The brooch has a large stone accented with a circle of rhinestones and black trim. I like the design of this Lia Sophia brooch. The center has a faceted acrylic “old rose” or peach color stone surrounded by tiny black rhinestones with clear pear shaped rhinestones around the perimeter. The brooch measures 2 inches across. The brooch is stamped Lia Sophia on the back. This is an attractive brooch and it’s in excellent condition.
This lightweight brooch was included in a lot of vintage items I purchased. It’s not really a vintage piece: although the company that manufactured this brooch has been around for years under several names, the Lia Sophia name was not used until 2001. Victor Kiam purchased the ActII jewelry company in 1986 and renamed it Lady Remington. Kiam’s son later took over and the company which was later renamed Lia Sophia after one of his daughters.
Brooches are HOT and this one would be a perfect accent to the 2019 fashion colors!
