Vintage Tru-Kay 12K Yellow Gold Filled Bow Circle Pin Brooch, Family Pin, Rhinestone, Signed TK, Prong-Set, Multicolor #c505
Here's a beautiful and vibrantly colored gold filled circle brooch from Tru-Kay! 

This brooch is most likely a family piece, as it was common for mid-century mothers and grandmothers to have these brooches made with the birthstone colors of their children and grandchildren. The brooch is round and openwork with a lovely offset, gold bow accent at the top. Eleven vividly colored rhinestones fill the frame of the brooch in colors of clear, green, dark blue, aqua, light green, light blue, pink, red, light blue, purple and pink, All of the rhinestones are prong-set and the colors are rich and vivid. Many of these brooches were acrostic, meaning that first letter of the names of the stones spelling out sentiments or names, but I was unable to determine if this one does so. The brooch closes with a rolling c clasp. It's a glorious rainbow of colors!

The brooch measures about 1 3/8 inches in diameter and it weighs 4.8 grams. It is hallmarked "12KT.G.F." over the superimposed letters "TK" for Tru-Kay on the back of the brooch.

Brooches such as this one were often filled with family birthstone colors, which left some of them with unusual color patterns and gaps. That is not the case with this pretty brooch, as it has a fabulous array of colors which are evenly spaced around the entire brooch. The lovely gold bow accent adds the perfect finishing touch to this colorful pin. With its varied color palette, it can be worn with almost any outfit or jewelry, and because it has a wreath shape, it could also be worn during the Christmas and holiday season. The brooch is in very good vintage condition with some wear to the gold filled finish in spots, mainly on the back and side of the brooch where the pin has been clasped and unclasped over the years (photo #7). It's a fantastically vibrant vintage find!
