Regency  ~ 

Little is known about this company, but like Weiss, the Regency name and mark is known to accompany glittering pieces with lots of rhinestones.  Regency butterflies are well loved, and overall the jewelry shows imaginative use of colors and unusual stones.  An approximate time frame for the company is set at 1950s to early 1970s.

Regency Multicolor Butterfly Brooch

Deliciously nestled in the japanned setting, the various colored stones in this butterfly will have any butterfly collector reaching for a net.  The colors include rose, olive, light blue and even blue aurora borealis stones.  Unsigned, but definitely Regency.

Regency Layered Root Beer and Smoke Brooch

This stunning, layered brooch is fascinating for a couple reasons.  The color combination is subtle, but still glitzy: root bear tones and "black diamond" (smoke) rhinestones.  And, it has unusual lozenge shaped stones at the bottom.  Note: the bottom of three loops in the hook-and-eye construction is missing, but this doesn't effect stability or wear.  Goldtone settings.  Marked: Regency
