These earrings in 18K white gold are 13/16" in diameter, just under one inch. The design is a swirl of black and gray diamonds, slightly domed, not flat. Even the back of the earrings has a beautiful, cleanly finished pierced design in a place where only the wearer would see it, a sure sign of quality jewelry. There is an omega clip and post, and the post can be removed for someone without pierced ears. The earrings weigh 11.7 dwt or 18.2 g. They date to about the 1970's, and the condition is excellent, like new, unworn.

These earrings are 18K white gold, 1-1/8" in diameter, fairly large. They are pave set with 14 ct of pink sapphires with 12 mm South Seas white pearls in the center. The pink sapphires are perfectly and evenly matched in color, which takes additional time and requires many more stones in the setting. There are five petals to the flowers, and each petal is slightly different. The back is finished as beautifully as the top. There is an omega back, no post, but a post can easily be added to the flat platform on the back. I will be happy to do so for the buyer. The earrings date to about the 1970's, and the condition is excellent.

There is a striated pattern on the chevron shaped links with a vertical bar in the top center that contains four diamonds that are about 3-4 pts. each, for a total of about 24-32 pts.

This 14K white gold ring consists of five narrow bands held together in the back and set with diamonds on the top. The bands are bead set with small diamonds, interspersed with 12 prong set diamonds of about 5-6 pts each, raised above the rest of the setting. There is slight side movement in the separate, individual bands, but they do not move up and down. Of course, when the ring is on the finger, the bands line up precisely. The band is about .5" wide on the top, about .3" wide at the back. The ring is a size 7, but when you buy a ring with a wide shank, you should add an extra quarter or half size to your normal size, so I would recommend this ring for someone who usually wears a size 6-1/2. Because of the construction at the back, it would be difficult to change the size of this ring. This style is known as a Hawaiian wedding band or harem ring and dates to about the 1950's. It is indistinctly marked ER....14K inside the shank. The condition is excellent.

This 14K yellow gold retro ring is between size 6-1/4 and 6-1/2 and weighs 6.2 dwt. The design includes two horizontal rows of 5 diamonds each row with a large semicircular fan type flourish of two rows of what I believe to be garnets, one row with 5 stones and the other with 7 stones. The red stones are darker than they appear in the photos. The design measures about 1" wide by 3/4" high. Because of the asymmetrical design, this ring would work as a spectacular pinkie ring or on the ring finger. It dates to about the 1950's, and the condition is very good with just one or two of the garnets having slight chips, not unusual in a ring of this age. The stones can be replaced, but the chips are just noticeable under a loupe.

This extraordinary Native American sterling bangle bracelet is 2.5" wide all the way around. The inside measurement is 2.5" wide by 2.25" and the opening at the back is 1.25". It weighs 3.6 ounces or 65.9 dwt. There is pierced open work in the silver, clearly hand cut. The elaborate design consists of a center circle inlaid with a bird in black and white stones and a tiny red dot at the neck, plus two kinds of cactus in green, one with coral flowers, all surrounded by a Greek key border. On the sides of the center circle are two circles inlaid with four pieces of mother of pearl in slight relief, further decorated with four circles of dots. The borders of the cuff repeat the Greek key and dot circle decoration. There are no maker's marks, but I guarantee that the piece is sterling. The cuff comes from a collection that ceased in the 1970's. The condition is excellent, except for one tiny chip in the mother of pearl inlay on the bird at the lower right where it meets the black inlay. It is hardly noticeable. I have not polished the bracelet.

The naja has turquoise nuggets and coral set in bezels, plus what looks like two bear claws on the sides. What I call the tail has more sterling, turquoise and coral.

This 18K pink gold butterfly necklace is 16.5 inches long. The butterfly pendant, which is attached to the chain, is 1.5 inches or 3.9 cm wide, 1.2 inches or 3 cm high. The butterfly is not flat, it curves up, so that it sits comfortably when worn on the neck and looks more alive. There are four oval, watermelon tourmalines in the center, two larger ones over two smaller stones to mimic real butterfly wings. The stones are clear, and the appearance of a mark in the photo is just a reflection. The color of the perfectly matched tourmalines is a deep reddish purple with green edges, hence the name watermelon tourmaline. The 18K pink gold setting enhances the color of the rare watermelon tourmaline stones. It would be extremely difficult, if not nearly impossible, to find identical watermelon tourmalines today. The entire butterfly is outlined in diamonds set in the 18K gold frame, including the body in the center and the antennae at the top. This is a very wearable piece which dates to the 1970's, and the condition is excellent, like new.
