This blue AB rhinestone brooch was part of Trifari's highly prized 1961 "Memo to a Smart Woman" campaign collection. The silver rhodium-plated setting holds the gems at various heights, creating extra sparkle. Darker and lighter blue-green aurora borealis (AB) stones. Really beautiful. From the McGee estate. See it on page 225 of Julia Carroll's "Collecting Costume Jewelry 202."
