Gilt metal, mabe pearl, faceted crystals, in a arge pearl-drop brooch/pendant by Goossens, for Yves Saint Laurent.

This is an impressive piece. It's quite heavy, and beautifully made. Sparkling crystals and lovely faux pearls. The various cutouts let peek through whatever you are wearing underneath.
