My newest Find!

While I was out and about hunting for my next treasure I cam across my first ever D&E also known as "Juliana" piece. This gorgeous brooch caught my eye immediately! checking the stones and the back of the brooch I was most certain as to what I had found.

I bought it almost instantly and began doing my research. Comparing the prongs and the back to other D&E pieces. Forwarding images to other collector friends, and taking it in to an expert's shop for verification.  It was Unanimous I had found my first "Juliana."

I had to share this with my readers since I know that each time we have a first its memorable. I remember my first cameo like it was yesterday!!

This was just a great day that made all the Estate Sale jumping worth it!! :-)

it is now listed here: JULIANA BROOCH
