This is an unusual brooch - sort of a clear rhinestone "V" atop a sapphire blue baguette rhinestone triangle, along with an irregular shape sapphire blue faceted glass drop surrounded with clear rhinestones. The pin is made of silver colored metal and appears to be shiny and virtually unused. It is 3" long from the top of the V to the bottom of the drop, and 1 1/2" wide at the widest part. The brooch is in excellent condition and it is not marked.

Wow! Stunning signed Hobe Mayorka Petal Bracelet with Venetian or Murano Glass Petals. I have had this bracelet with Saphiret and Slag Glass, never the pale blue Murano. It measures appx 1 inch wide and 2 1/4 inch inner diameter. Very little wear. Exquisite!
These are very tiny screw on earrings from the Napier Co during Art Deco period - they are Bohemian or what is sometimes called raspberry garnets because of their color. Each one is only 3/8" in diameter. They are in good condition and marked Napier and Sterling.
Necklaces like these are getting harder and harder to find. That isn't too hard to understand because most people who have them are reluctant to part with them. This necklace is 15 1/2" long with a spring ring clasp. Around the from is an intricate pattern of Bohemian garnets, sometimes called raspberry garnets because of their intense color. Many of these come from Victorian times, butI believe that this one is later likely from the early 1930s...
