A well made and attractive vintage signed Birks 18k yellow gold textured wreath brooch with three claw-set round brilliant cut genuine diamonds c1950s. This well-made 2-1/8" x 1-1/4" pin is stamped 18K and BIRKS, it has a safety catch, and it weighs 9.9 grams. The diamonds are claw set, and the diamonds measure approximately 6 points in total - they are sparkling clear and white (VS, E-F colour). It is in excellent original condition with no breaks or cracks, dents, bends, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs, and the claws are in excellent condition also. It comes with an independent gemmological appraisal by a certified gemmologist, for $2600 CAD. I would doubt a piece of comparable quality could be purchased at Birks even for the appraised value, even if on sale. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are secondhand and may have slight signs of gentle use. Xpresspost-air insured tracked post starts at $40 (other spots may vary) - tracking and insurance is included in shipping quote. Items paid with a credit card will be shipped to confirmed addresses only. We do ship internationally. All of our prices are in $US. PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYPAL, ONLY VISA AND MASTERCARD.

A cool vintage 10K white gold and synthetic Alexandrite stone ring c1960. This size 5 ring measures 3/8" x 3/8" across the claws, which hold a facetted synthetic Alexandrite stone which changes colour from purple to more of a gray-blue, depending on the ambient lighting. These simulated alexandrites are usually corundum laced with vanadium to produce the color change under different types of lighting, or a treated colourless chrysoberyl. This created gemstone has been around for almost 100 years, and the stones usually test as corundums on a gem tester (natural genuine alexandrites are expensive and uncommon, most of what you will see for sale is the simulated version). This ring weighs 2.6 grams, it is stamped 10K with a circled A maker's mark, and the stone measures approximately 8mm x 8mm x 5mm, or approximately 2.3 carats. It is in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks, dents, bends, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs. Yes, there is some grime on the back of the stone - the pictures were taken before cleaning, but it will be cleaned before shipment. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are vintage or antique and may have slight signs of gentle use. Expedited tracked parcel shipping to the U.S. starts at $21 (other spots may vary, air is higher) - tracking and insurance are included in shipping quotes.
