The exceptional antique jeweled cloak button we chose for this brooch is a show stopper. It radiates the extraordinary vitality of life in the 1890s. 

Known as the Gay Nineties, it was a decadent decade culturally akin to the Roaring Twenties. In the button world, Gay Nineties is a collector's term describing the large, ornate buttons worn to fasten long hooded opera cloaks. 

The cloak button nestles in two vintage mother-of-pearl buttons adding interest and glimmer to this lovely brooch.

We named this piece in honor of Enrico Caruso, a Victorian-era operatic tenor and one of the most popular entertainers of his generation. 

In this piece:

  • Brass jeweled cloak button with amethyst glass center, circa 1890
  • Two hand-carved ocean pearl buttons, circa 1890-1910
  • 1 ¼” diameter
