Heliotrope is a old name for bloodstone, a dark green jasper with flecks of bright red iron oxide. These bright red spots were once thought to be drops of blood, hence the name. But since that label may be a turn-off, we'll go with heliotrope, a name that comes from the way the stone reflects light. This ring, with its shield-shaped dark green bloodstone. is simple and charming. The setting is an ornate 10 k gold Victorian delight. The stone is 1/4" across and the ring is a size 6 1/2.

You can't get more 50's than this amazing and beautiful multistrand necklace & earring set. For the necklace, three torsades of faux pearls, each larger than the previous, are separated by faceted bead strands. The earrings are small faux pearls surrounded by the same faceted beads. Anecdotally by Lily Dache, but not signed. Circa 1950 and really gorgeous.
