This is vintage Miriam Haskell. The small amethyst beads and rhinestones encircle a large prong set cabochon glass center. Her signature open work metal backing supports the body of the brooch. Her name appears in a small oval just under the clasp. The brooch measures 1 3/4 inches long by 1 1/2 inches at the widest part. It dates circa 1950.
This shell carved cameo is set in 14K white gold and filigree. The carving is, particularly, sweet. The lady wears a very tiny necklace with a diamond chip pendant. The filigree side mounts are beautifully detailed and some etching continues around the band. It is stamped 14K on the inside of the band. It is just slightly larger than a size 6. The cameo measures 3/4 inches long. The ring dates circa 1920's.
This lovely bib necklace is a Hobe piece, signed on the back. It features prong set rhine stones in two shades of green, sapphire blue, and clear. It dates from the mid-late 1950's. All stones are present and appear to be original. The necklace length can be adjusted.
Crisp design work best describes the wide thistle patterned silverplate border on this kilt or sash pin. The center supports an amber colored faceted stone. This dates from the Victorian era and measures 4 inches in diameter. A striking piece.
A. Manca was the artist who designed the Battery Park eagle sculpture. He also crafted sterling silver jewelry. This calla lily brooch is in the Arts and Crafts style but dates mid 20th century. The pin is signed A.Manca and sterling and is 4" long.
