Envision a sunflower as stunning and captivating as a Hollywood starlet of that era, made even more mesmerizing against the darkest night backdrop. This is the magic of its black japanned plating – offering you the night sky, not just ordinary.

This stellar piece centers around a Topaz crystal, but this is no ordinary gem. It’s been blessed with a double aurora borealis finish, mimicking the Northern Lights within its facets. The colors it emits are a breathtaking display of deep blues and purples, outshining even the stars. It’s akin to wearing a slice of cosmic wonder, lighting up with every turn.

It’s the perfect contrast, making this brooch an absolute standout.
