A wonderful and unusual 8 pointed star pin; one of my personal favorites. The skill and talent of the jewelers at the turn of the century thrills and amazes me. This pin is a case in point as the 4 point diamond star can be turned to reveal a second color of enamel underneath!! Blue with slight tinges of green changes to a fiery red and orange. Each diamond arm contains 5 rose cut diamonds. The central point of the pin contains an old European cut diamond weighing approximately 0.20 carat. The base of the pin is a double tiered open work cage and the pin retains its original C clasp.

Condition: Excellent

Measurement: Just under 1"

Metal: Most likely 18kt but untested

Circa 1890.

The buckle motif has been used in jewelry since the Victorian Era and had a huge resurgence in the 1920s through the 1940s. Van Cleef & Arpels was the first to design the buckle bracelet in 1935; all of the top jewelers soon followed including Tiffany & Co and Cartier.

This particular bracelet is a true classic yet with unusual styling. Though unsigned, it appears to have been manufactured by the jewelers who worked for both Tiffany & Cartier as they both sold this exact bracelet. Composed of 14kt yellow gold, platinum, diamonds and rubies, one striking difference in this from many other buckle bracelets is the wonderfully flexible textured strap, giving this a 3 dimensional, machine age look to it. The underside however, is as soft as silk on the wrist. The substantial clasp is indeed a marvel as well adjusting to fit any wrist with its largest size extending to 7.25 inches by means of a very finely made lock within the clasp itself.

Condition: Excellent

Measurements: 8" long; 1" wide; Clasp is 1 1/8" wide

Gross Weight: 33.3 dwt; (51.7 grams)

Stones: 19 Round Brilliant Cut Diamonds weighing 0.90 carat tcw; F-G color 12 Callibre Cut Rubies weighing 0.50 carat tcw

Circa: 1935-1945

NOTE: Stone weights are estimations only. Stones were not removed from the mounting.

The symbol of the heart representing love developed in the 15th century. The geometric shape itself is found in much earlier sources, but in such instances does not depict a "heart", but typically foliage, typically the leaves of ivy, fig and water-lily.

This particular contemporary heart encompasses both of these iconographic elements of love; the shape of the heart and the foliate design within. In addition, it holds seven (7) gems of garnet; seven representing completeness, clear conscience and connection between body and soul. All of this on a simple and unusual gold 18" chain.

Condition: Excellent
Measurements: Pendant: 1/2" wide by 5/8" from top of bale; Chain: 18" long

I love the jewels of designer Jean Schlumberger! Greta Garbo, Liz Taylor and Jackie Onassis are just a few of the woman in history who also adored his jewelry. Best known for his tenure at and designs for Tiffany & Co., these are the V-rope clip earring that we've carried in the past. This pair is especially lovely though as they contain 0.91 ct of diamonds. A truly classic and beautiful pair of earrings. Current retail at Tiffany & Co is $7150.

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 her 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!

These earrings have been so popular that I've ordered a few pair!

Also known as a 'toi et moi' ring (meaning me and you), this style was very popular in the Victorian and Edwardian eras representing the intertwining of two souls and has thus been given very often as an engagement ring. This unusual ring is made of platinum over 18kt (marked 750) gold on a gold shank, it contains one (1) bezel set old european cut diamond of approximately .50ct, G-H color, VS clarity and one (1) bezel set faceted bright sapphire measuring approximately 4.6mm in diameter by 3.2mm in depth. The shoulder contains an additional five (5) old european cut diamonds on each side of approximately .10ct for a total of .20ct. This ring is absolutely stunning and one of the prettiest ones I've seen.

While Luna Felix was working at the United Nations in New York she began wearing jewelry of her own design gathering much attention from friends and colleagues. She launched her own line of jewelry and began showing full collections at Neiman Marcus, Bendel's and Bloomingdales among other stores. Felix specializes in the ancient and precise technique of granulation, (the process of using granules of gold to create designs in relief). In this 18kt and aquamarine ring, the warmth of the gold contrasts with the cool hue of the aqua and possesses a sense of history with its intricate details and granulation. A beauty on any skin tone worn on the pinky ring or ring finger; alone or stacked.
