What does this marking stand for? It is on I believe a costume brooch pin with enamel and rhinestones.

I believe the jewelers mark on your broach is the mark belonging to Catherine Popesco. A French jewelry designer famous for handcrafted vintage designs as well as some more modern pieces. It would probably be worth your time to do some more research on the particular piece that you have as some are fairly valuable.

Sometimes the vintage pieces themself are worth more than silver price . The silver price helps yes but even vintage costume jewelry can be worth a small fortune even though I have spent a bigger fortune on 92.5 silver jewlery.

Does anyone recognize this symbol on jewelry? It has a crown on top, two initials "P" and "D" and some kind of plant leaves expanding up on both sides.
