Wonderful Large Vintage Heart Locket by JMF & Co. The top piece looks Austro Hungarian with ornate Silver and inset Jewels, probably glass. 2 Turquoise Cabachons. Measures total 2 5/8 inch and the Heart alone is nearly 1.5 inches. Great working order. The only hallmark I see is JMF & Co on inside of locket. Looks like 800 or Sterling Silver to me and real Turquoise. Condition is very good, just tarnish spots on back of locket. It is hefty and would be a stunning gift.
This is a fabulous Long Chain Necklace, 38", with individual links featuring an adorable Putti Cherub. Each link is also hallmarked with an old English Lion Passant designating Sterling Silver. Very reminiscent of Peruzzi style, likely same era or even earlier.
Delicate, sparkling and feminine, this pair of earrings have a crisp and clean character. They are light in color and light on the ear.

This particular leaf form is handsome and modern. The use of dark reds and maroons works well with the few splashes of green and rich brown. The stem is finely worked to add a bit of texture.
