The detail here is superb. The quality never replicated to my eyes and in my years. Inverted blue hearts or shields suspend urns of blue and white enamel drawn on 18kt gold. Small gold beads are applied to the top and to the lowest point of each triangle and can be seen from behind where the gold is not enameled. As urns often do, these have handles, here fashioned of twisted gold. Shepherds hooks hold the earrings securely in the ear. The weight is light and comfortable. Condition is immaculate.

Enlarging is a must! Beautiful as all Georgian chains are, we were thrilled to see the braided, entwined tightness and sturdiness of these 15kt gold textured links. Long chains were worn by men and women. Often worn dropping to the waist, doubled, and in combination with numerous other jewels, the wealthy added a large brooch, multiple rings and large earrings. The golden clasp on this chain is a jewel on its own. It is fashioned as a hand with a ruffled floral cuff set with natural turquoise. Turquoise, when natural, responds to the touch by changing to a darker tone. The stone touched most often during clasping shows the change, but the color difference is not as intense to the eye as it is to the camera. Condition is excellent

The fine quality of the above natural pearl and banded agate locket made me stop in my tracks when I glanced in a London shop window. The border glows with the luster of the pearls in their tiara settings of high carat gold. A large convex natural agate is set center as if on a pedestal. Victorians were passionate about nature and the use of natural materials is an example of that passion. They had the knack of cutting the banded stones in the way that made them unique jewels. The locket back calls for your keepsake making this pendant your personal treasure. The chain, offered separately, has been sold. Locket in Perfect Original Condition

Prisms of pique work were carefully incised with flower forms that then were filled with silver and gold. This is delicate work that was performed by artists in the latter quarter of the 19th century, c. 1870 most often in France or Russia. This art form was done for a short period of the Victorian era and as there is no fine reproduction today, These are medium length earrings, wearable and very light in weight. The condition is perfect.

Visually striking on the finger, this fine cameo is set in 18kt gold bezel with a 9kt shank. Psyche is finely carved from the white of the onyx and rises from the black background. This detailed miniature work was a talent of Italian jewelers. It amazes me how the carving is so delicate as to create hair on the head of a figure or drapes in clothing while bringing out one color only from the stone. Dating to 1870-80. Origin Italy. Excellent Condition

Sometimes a color can be felt within; have a visceral effect on one's mood. This bracelet lights a spark, a spark of hope, a taste of honey, sunshine, spring and rejuvenation.

Pure delight. The bracelet was made in the US around 1950's-1960's. The condition is excellent as is the wearability.

A chunky rock crystal, clear and pure, is home to s a witch's heart of natural pearls. At its center sits a dot of turquoise that hypnotically holds the eye.

We photograph it on a ribbon. A lovely Victorian gold chain will be a beautiful addition. Ask to see our chain selection. The heart is English in origin c. 1880.

Old mine cut diamonds add a pinch of spice to a lovely pair of Victorian earrings that are timeless.Take note please that the darkened areas shown in the photograph are not at all visible in the earrings but an exaggeration of the camera magnification. The earrings are European in origin, a strikingly interesting texture and in excellent condition. Light on the ear they measure a petite 15/16 ths of an inch in length although they appear grander because of the nice size of the bottom orbs. Definitely a pair to wear constantly.

Brilliant and glistening foiled diamonds were hand cut and polished with each stone individually shaped and set. For this "all by hand" method, no two stones are exactly the same in shape or size. This fact is important in determining the age of antique jewelry and one reason why Georgian jewelry is desired. All diamonds are set in pinched rub-over settings. The center oval gem is freely suspended and gives gentle movement to the earring catching the light. These are delicious earrings in a size that can be worn with a bridal gown or with blue denim, They are ultra feminine and elegant.

Large and proud of it, this turn of the century locket is engraved on both sides and bears a symbolic family crest in the center. Symbols like this are lost in history and become puzzles today. At times we can come close to deciphering the family code. Other times we stumble only to keep at the game. Swirling forms of leaves run into one another and become interwoven above a textured background of gold. These are Acanthus leaves, stately and strong that symbolize long life and endurance. The locket is the size of a large pocket watch and makes a commanding presence when worn low just above or below the breast. Inside is a photograph of a serious young girl. At the turn of the Victorian era, smiles were not easily flashed for the camera as they are today, even on babies. The condition of this locket is excellent. English
