Fine Pyu gold signet ring with flower design
The wonder of this spectacular necklace isn't that the beads survived from Britain's age of Roman conquest -- beads often last -- but that their arrangement into this particular form probably dates from relatively soon afterward. I don't know about you, but that much history gives me the shivers (in a good way).
According to an expert, this is exactly the sort of strand created by Britons of the Anglo-Saxon period, as found in some burials circa 600 to 1000...
An extremely rare piece of ancient jewelry, a yellow gold earring 4th-7th century AD, a similar ear pendant belongs to a famous collection in Germany… A touch of history. We hardly ever have ancient jewelry at this museum quality level and we are very proud to present it here...

In remarkable condition, this stunning ancient pendant is formed in a well-detailed floral shape and set with a ruby red cabochon stone (presumably glass). It's most unusual to find an item of such antiquity still containing a stone, let alone one in splendid condition, but the overlapped edge of the mounting indicates it's original...
This is Huge chung dzi bead from tibet,It was broken on side and reattached.
This unusually large and ornate frog effigy, if not reconditioned as a pendant, would be a museum-piece. It was found circa 1950, with normal and natural wear, then cleaned and polished, fitted with a bale and probably gold-dipped to restore its original appearance.
Looking at the result, I find it hard to regret the changes, even though a lot of value was lost. Now we're free to enjoy it as a jewel, not just admire it in a public display case...
This brooch was offered to us in the shop in this condition. Made somewhere between 1300 and 1400 (always hard to pin-point exactly). We decided to leave it untouched as we think that any repair or alteration to this jewel won't do it justice as it will take away its genuine character.
What do we see? Born as a cross, with a center stone that is either ruby or spinel and three remaining settings, most likely for the same type of stone as in the center...
Rarely are rings found from the medieval ages. At this time nobility wore jewels of gold and silver. Base metal was worn by other classes. The English Emprire was ruled by Henry V11 when this ring was born. Symbolizing the amalgamation of the Lancaster and York noble factions, this silver band traveled time extremely well. The bezel is composed of two concave rectangular panels engraved with hearts and Tudor Roses. The shoulders display Tudor roses as well...
