Star with circle makers mark
by: Anonymous

The star inside the cirle is the brand Laila Rowe. She is not really a highly sought after artist. I have sold a few of her items and only get around $10

Five Pointed Star | Brooch

Hi Cindy thanks for writing in...

The dove and olive branch theme on your brooch is symbolic of PEACE. The olive branch has been an ancient peace symbol, and the dove holding the olive olive branch is typical and has been used by early Christians and also christians in modern times in the decorative arts, the dove symbol was also popularized by the masterwork of artist Pablo Picasso in 1949.

It sounds like you would like to sell this piece. Can you tell if the metal is gold or gold plated? Knowing the metal and the gold purity will help determine the value. If it does turn out to be a Gold item, you might like to get the stones tested and to satisfy your curiosity.


Concerning the Five Pointed Star, with No letter within - H.D. MERRITT & Co. I believe it was mostly used on Plated Chains, N. Attleboro, MA, USA) - ca 1855 - 1930s

best wishes,

Yvonne Hammouda-Eyre
