Rarity's Brooch by SilverSlinger Rarity's Brooch by SilverSlinger

More MLP themed jewelry can be seen here: silverslinger.deviantart.com/g…

This piece is one of a kind, and sold at the MLP-MSP Convention charity auction for $2,100!

MLP-MSP's website: mlp-msp.com/

Anyway, I know Rarity has never worn a brooch like this one, but I figured she would.  It's very fancy, Victorian, elegant.  Right up her alley.

This brooch is entirely hand crafted out of sterling silver sheet and wire.  It measures 2.25 inches in height and 1.25 inches in width.  There are a total of 4 gemstones in this piece: 3 cubic zirconium matched in size at 4.00mm, and 1 natural amethyst sized at 5.00mm.  All 4 gemstones were hand set in a bezel setting (No glues, epoxy or adhesives this time :D)  It has a two-toned high polish and sand blasted finish.  Although it's hard to tell in the picture, the brooch domes outwards by 1/2 inch in the middle. On the back side of the pendant is a straight pin with a low profile nickel clutch to secure this in place.

Personally I would've given the diamonds the polished look, and given the connecting vines more of a matte finish. Other than that, the soldering connections are precisely done, the gems are set and positioned correctly, an all around and expertly crafted piece.

Also, that would make a STUNNING cloak pin. You know, to fasten a cloak in place? :D

I KNOW she'd wear that.
Pfft, I'D wear that, and I'm a guy. It's just that I feel as though Rarity's personality was modeled after me.
