Vintage rhinestone jewelry, they made it better in times past - hence the open settings to let the light in so it shines. The metal is obviously not white gold or sterling, and no one would set real gemstones into base metal. For a while I sold lots and lots of vintage rhinestone jewelry on ebay. Check ebay yourself and you'll find many similar items.
Are there any maker marks? A pretty vintage brooch with a designer hallmark in very nice condition may fetch you $20-$50.
If you'd like to clean it, a short soak in rubbing alcohol and a gentle scrub with a soft toothbrush can bring out the sparkle. I'd say wear it and enjoy it

I am hoping that maybe its a collectible type of old costume jewelry.... anything better than that is a plus.
