    Large & lovely brooches from another time

    I fawned over the brooches as soon as I saw them in the glass case at the auction house. I had trudged through tons of old beat-up clocks and dusty Coca Cola memorabilia, and these pieces of jewelry were a welcome relief.

    There were five of them – all with lovely and different gemstones – on the top shelf of one of the low glass cases. Nearby was a wide bone and onyx hinged cuff bracelet that already had attracted an absentee bid.

    The first one I came to was a gilt oval-shaped brooch with an amethyst gemstone – oversized and filigreed just like the others. Two had brown stones, and another had a series of cobalt-blue stones enveloping a carved flower. None of these fancy brooches were marked with a maker’s name.

    Take a look at them. Would these have willed you to stop and linger, too?
