Lika Behar was born in Istanbul and has lived in New York since the 1980s. The inspiration for her jewels is the contrast of the ancient and modern of country. Her original collection in 24k yellow gold showcases her passion for the ancient traditions of jewelry making as each piece is uniquely hand crafted. In recent years she began working with sterling silver accented with colored stones that are reminiscent of the blue waters that surround her birth country. These lovely drop earrings are handmade in sterling silver with a round blue topaz on the top and a rectangular white topaz drop. So light you will forget you are wearing them, yet so bright and flattering that everyone else will notice how beautiful they are!

In the Victorian era, dogs were indispensable to domestic life. They were THE house pet and became as popular as they are today. Victorians loved their pets so greatly that some often had them stuffed so they could be around forever! In the symbolism of the era, dogs meant fidelity and in this beautiful necklace with a detachable locket, the love of the owner's dog is evident while she probably wore this everyday! What I particularly love about this piece, are the photographs inside; fidelity emphasized inside and out. Lovely and completely Victorian yet amazingly modern and wearable today. The sweet little pug is handpainted on the front of the locket; the reverse is plain and so, in essence one could wear it either way. Condition is very good with a few minor scratches indicative of the age of the love of its prior owners. Circa 1880 and English in origin.

Paste jewelry became popular in England and France during the 18th century due in part to the demand of the middle class for inexpensive jewelry. Additionally, the upper class often carried paste jewelry on their travels to help deter highway robbery. The definition of paste is "high content leaded glass which is faceted to imitate gemstones" and is usually backed with foil to enliven the color. The stones were cut by the same diamond cutters who cut the more expensive stones; and they used the same cutting techniques. This necklace contains 44 pastes measuring 6-6.50mm in diameter with the largest stone at the tongue style clasp, measuring 7mm. As was typical, the stones are collet set in siver. Most of the stones are quite white with a few casting a slight yellowish hue. These pieces where intended to be worn in candlelight and the sparkle and brilliance is dazzling. Each stone is connected slightly higher than center to ensure that the necklace hangs perfectly and doesn't flip over. All in all, a beautiful and elegant look. Circa 1850. Condition is very good; missing excellent just by the few slightly yellow stones. 14" in length
