The jade is that soft, blue-inflected, green color that we rarely see in contemporary jewelry. Buccellati is famous for their intricate and meticulous hand-engraving. This brooch would have originally been worn as a fur clip, but looks lovely on a lapel or heavy scarf. Closure is a two pronged pin, with a single trombone clasp.  Marked Buccellati.
