This lovely brooch/pendant was part of the “Shades of Byzantium” collection featured in the book on page 301. The design featured translucent tear-drop, high-domed oval, and high-domed round cabochons set in cast metal. The collection came in single colors of citrine, amethyst, and emerald-green, in addition to the mix-color version. The collection was featured in The Chicago Defender on Oct. 15, 1955. The caption read, “Intricately carved silver floral (we’re showing the gold-tone version) settings form the romantic background for the regally polished cabochon amethysts …” #napierjewelry #napierjewelryhistory #napierbook #thejewelrystylist
