This is a very pretty set of earrings - fancy bright brushed metal in an intricate pattern with lovely bright emerald green glass stones - one in each earring. They are clips, and each one is 3/4" by 1/2". Only one is marked.
This is a very old and lovely Victorian Cameo necklace. It has two acqu glass stones on each side and the metal is Sterling silver. The necklace with chain and spring ring closure is just shy of 18" long. The cameo dangle piece is 1 1/2" long and the front decoration is 5/8" wide. The stones and cameo are all bezel set...
This is a very pretty clear rhinestone set - sort of has a dainty, lacy look to it. It is rhodium plated, and the necklace is a choker 14" long with a 4" extension. It is about 1/2" wide all the way around. The matching earrings are clips, and each one is 1" long by 1" wide. All three pieces are in excellent condition, and only the earrings are marked.
This is an unusual piece for Hobe, and I assume it is a later one - maybe from the 1970s. It measures 2" by 2", and even though it is large, it is light weight and easy to wear. It is in good condition and is marked, as shown.
This is a large and showy set - it is made of gold toned metal and the pin is 2 1/2" in diameter. The contrast between shiny plain metal and patterned metal in the petals of the flower makes for added interest. The matching earrings are clips, and each is 1 1/4" in diameter. The set is in excellent condition - shows no evidence of wear, and all three pieces are marked.
This is a large and lovely brooch - 3" long by 1 1/2" wide. It is a leaf with a featherly effect attached. The large leaf has green and rust enamel sides divided by a row of sparkling clear rhinestones. The feathery part is all rust enamel and it also has a row of clear rhinestones dividing it. The metal is gold toned. The brooch is in excellent condition with no loss of enamel or of stones, and it is marked Hattie Carnegie, as shown.
This is an old Art Deco necklace - 31" long with an Egyptian look with pyramid and rectangular white beads with black striation. There are lots of smaller conical white beads and round topaz colored glass beads sprinkled in. The necklace is long enough to slip over the head so it does not have a clasp. It is very old and all original, I think. It is in good condition for its age.
This is an old Sterling silver cuff bracelet with I assume to be Native American symbols on the sides, but since I know very little about this kind of jewelry, I can only let you look at the pictures and decide. It is heavy and substantial and looks great when worn. It is 1" wide at the top, and tapers down to a bit more than 1/4" at the end of the cuff. It is in good condition and is marked Sterling.
This is really a classic brooch that could be worn on almost any dress or suit someone owns. The brooch is 2 1/4" wide and where the stone in the middle is, it is 3/4" top to bottom. The gold metal scroll work is very pretty and the large black glass stone in the middle is in very good condition but could probably use a good cleaning. The brooch is in excellent condition and is marked Parklane along the side of the stone on the back.
This set is new old stock - part of a number of pieces I purchased from the widow of a jeweler - pieces she had kept from when they closed the store in the early 1970s. The necklace is 4 strands of various sizes and shapes of topaz and tan striated beads. The longest strand is 16" long and the 4 strands make it 1" wide. It has a push in clasp, and the metal is gold toned...
This is a pretty shiny gold bangle bracelet with atop of multicolored rhinestones, all prong set. It is slightly oval with inside diameters of 2" and 2 1/2". It has a secure catch and a safety chain. The bracelet is inexcellent condition and is not marked.
This is a gorgeous early Czech Carnelian glass necklace. It is 16" long with a 1 1/2" drop in the front. It has a simple old push in clasp and a fairly fine chain. The patina on the back tells you that has been cherished and worn for many years. None of the carnelian or clear glass pieces are chipped or cracked. It is clearly Czech from the Art Deco period even though it is not marked. It is rare to find one of these old step necklaces in such good condition.
This is such an elegant brooch - made by Francois which was a division of Coro. It isn't often that one finds such an elegant rendition of a lady Blackamoor. This one is made of silver toned metal, with clear rhinestones of several shapes and sizes for her costume, headdress, earring, and eyes. She has red enamel lips and emerald green rhinestones for feathers in her hat. Her face is shiny black enamel rather than matte. She measures about 2" x 1 1/2", and she is in excellent condition...
This is a very pretty double strand old cream colored pearl necklace with a stunning shell pendant. The pearls are separated with tiny glass rondels. The necklace is a choker, but there is an issue with the fact that the extender is partially missing, so it is only a 12" necklace. I have two choices for extending it - pearls that won't match in all probability, or a gold colored chain. With either of them I could make it 2-3" longer which is how it probably was originally...
This is one of those beautiful figurals that Nettie Rosenstein's Co. did so well. This one is small - 1 2/4" x 1 1/8". It has a faux pearl face, and an extremely ornate costume that is basically gold colored with all kinds of clear sparkling rhinestones set in silver colored settings which gives the pin the look of being gold and silver. It is a striking piece in excellent condition and marked, as shown.
This is a rare item - a Pennino sterling clear rhinestone studded lady's lapel watch. As with all lapel watches, the watch appears upside down when looking from the front. That was to allow the person wearing it to tilt it up and be able to see the time. The watch is a 17 jewel Swiss movement, and it needs to be cleaned and oiled, but it runs. The entire pin including the watch dangle is 2 1/4" long by 1 1/2" wide. It is an exquisite piece made by a company known for quality...
This is a very old and lovely Millefiori bead necklace. Note the filligree end caps on all the larger beads along with the barrel clasp. The necklace is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks and it is just under 14" long.
This is one of those pins that always makes me smile and want to dance with her. This princess is done in gold toned metal with a matte black face, and an elaborate royal headdress studded with rhinestones and imitation pearls. She is 2 3/4" tall. The brooch is in good condition with no problems and marked PAM, as shown.
