Good old amethysts; the Ancient Greeks would have us believe amethysts ward off the intoxicating powers of Bacchus.
So if you like a tipple, this is the brooch for you!
This stunning 1940’s pin sparkles and twinkles away, and just one glimpse of it will keep you quick witted and clear headed all day long, another Ancient Greek myth….?
Fabulous condition, superb quality. If your Valentine’s Day didn’t live up to expectations, then now is the time to treat yourself!

Lovely vintage brooch, looks fab on a navy or white blazer, and perfect as a shawl pin.
Made from aurora borealis rhinestones, it is very glamorous… and romantic:
“There was a storm. And thousands and thousands of starfish were washed up on the shore.
And there was this beautiful little girl was running down the beach and she was picking up the starfish, she was frantically throwing them back into the ocean.
When I saw her doing this I said to her, ‘Why are you doing that? You can only save a few before they die, what difference does it make?’
And she looked at me and she said, ‘To THAT one, it makes a difference.’ To THAT one, it makes a difference, that little girl said.
And she was right and at that very moment she was making a difference for that starfish and she was making a difference for herself too because she was connected, to that starfish.
And that’s what life is all about, connecting. In fact that’s the only time you’re ever alive, really, is when you’re connecting.”
