The Perry family presented it to her personally and she wore it during the opening festivities. As you can see from the photo, it's absolutely stunning and a fitting tribute to both a great lady, who was the first female Secretary of State, and our great Queen City.
The 18 karat gold brooch is encrusted with 2.75 carats of diamonds and capped by a single old European cut diamond. The base of the crown is hand engraved with "Albright" and set between an olive branch and a bundle of thirteen arrows.
Perry's, located across from SouthPark mall at 6525 Morrison Blvd., was also inspired to create its own pin display. Titled "Perry's Pin-tastic Exhibit," it features a collection of its pins from the Victorian era through modern times. All the pins are for sale. The exhibit runs through Sept. 23.
