This brooch can be identified as being by Ciro because of its mark 'SCP'. This was how the company signed its sterling silver pieces, with the initials standing for 'Sterling Ciro Pearls'. Although there are no pearls on this brooch, Ciro were so famed for their use of cultured pearls, that the word 'pearl' followed the company name in their maker’s mark.
