Vintage Mother of Pearl jewelry that was made in Israel and signed Bethlehem is very collectible. One of the reasons collectors desire Mother of Pearl jewelry signed Bethlehem is because the Mother of Pearl specimens are premium quality. The carving and craftsmanship is also superb. Premium Mother of Pearl appears to light up and glow on its own and appears to be living or alive.
Made in the 1960 era, this round flower motif brooch has a large domed Mother of Pearl center that reflects brilliant pastel hues. The petals are carved with serrated edges and appear to " float" inside the frame.
Medium petite in size, the brooch is 1 1/2" or 38 mm wide. The entire brooch is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. There is no loss of natural glossy shine and no scratches, chips, scuffs, or dings. The back has the original fine working C clasp. The back is signed Bethlehem.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation brooch box.
