Gotcha I am having difficulty dating this broken vintage Chanel brooch. I have every reason to believe it is genuine but I can not find a stamp like it on any time period of Chanel brooch (or other jewellery). It has an R for registered but not a C for copyright. It also does not state 'Made In France" which was common after 1996 or have a year date which was common pre 1996 to the 80's. I do not think it predates the 80's I would hazard a guess at 90's. Anyone have any ideas? I can't find the style online either and I have travelled through vogue runways from the early 90s till present and many jewellery emporiums! I believe it is gold plated rhodium the bar pin end has snapped off and you can see the dark grey base metal (pic included). It is a cluster of Camelias with black and clear crystals/rhinestones. It is very heavy in the hand.
