Circa 1960 bib necklace and matching clip earrings with amazing prong set stones including cabochon green stones, faceted blue, green, and vitrail peacock blue/green stones. All stones are glass. The metal is
a darkened coppery color. Hook close with extender chain. This looks very French in terms of the stones, the stone colors, the coppery metal color, and the construction. I have seen signed French pieces
with the same type of back construction...

Beautiful drop necklace made from soft coral pink silk cord, cross sectioned shells, and small shells, in the style of the Miriam Haskell jewelry made
during the 1930s and 1940s from natural materials. The silk cord is knotted in an intricate and dramatic draped design. The length can be adjusted by
"buttoning" one of several end strands through the loop at the clasp. A perfect resort or summer look. I am also listing a similar necklace, from the same
estate, in green...

grams. 1 3/8inches long...

Excellent vintage mid-century modern sterling cuff with a very distinctive design incorporating carved wood and turquoise. Circa 1960. Marked STERLING and also with a mark which looks like three animal claws or an animal track. Although I can't find this exact mark in "Hallmarks of the Southwest" I am guessing this piece is Native American.
The centerpiece is a piece of carved grained wood which is layered between silver pieces which follow the outlines of the wood. There is a biomorphic sh...

A beautiful vintage signed Italian necklace with a sun form pendant which is also a detachable brooch. Circa 1960s. Marked GM in a circle, which is an Italian mark.

Very rare vintage Ben Reig hinged bangle in goldtone with coral color thermoset stones and clear rhinestones. Late 1940s. Marked BEN REIG. The American design firm Ben Reig operated from the 1930s through the 1960s and I believe is known more for its clothing than its jewelry.
This piece has a beautiful openwork design made up of many small Maltese crosses studded with thermoset plastic faux coral cabochon stones, and clear rhinestones. Perfect any time of the year but especially for resort ...
Stunning and very dimensional vintage articulated collar necklace in the form of branch coral, with many black glass stones, both cabochon and faceted. 1960's, unsigned, probably Italian, by Bijoux Elfe or Bijoux Cascio, both couture makers.

Very layered, in goldtone, with overlapping sculpted coral form branches, with black glass stones alternating between cabochon...
