Reproduction Jelly Belly Brooch. Molded lucite petals, gilt leaves with tiny rhinestones on the curls of the leaves and stem. Clear pave stamen with ruby baguettes. This is a very well made reproduction and once you know the differences in construction you will know right off. These are still desirable in their own right.

The baguette settings are the true indicator. There is also a smaller baguette tucked up in the middle row closest to the pave rhinestones. In the repro there isn't one - it is a small knob of metal. There is a difference in the metal color as well with the fake being a brighter gold color.
