This lovely item is a navette-shaped pin from the Arts & Crafts era. It measures 2-1/4 x 3/8”. It has a leaf and berries design, centered by a blister pearl of an intriguing shape. It is marked STERLING, and the pin-stem assembly is original. I have not cleaned it, so it has a nice patina and a little bit of tarnish. In excellent condition, and circa 1900. NOTE that we will only accept a check for this item. Thanks...

This charming brooch is very pretty and wearable. Plique a jour jewels are very hard to come by these days – they are somewhat fragile, rare, and I believe that many of them are now in private collections. This lovely maple leaf pin seems to be missing one leaf. The space has been filled with a drop made of green agate, so the loss is hardly noticeable. Along the main vein of each leaf and the stem are paste accent stones, and it is centered by a faux pearl...

This striking brooch is just lovely! It has flowers – poppies? – with curved flowing lines, mounted on a mother of pearl oval. Poppies have symbolized sleep, rest, and eternal life. The flower is silver plate, and is worn in places (I find that the worn places actually serve as highlights). The mother of pearl is convex. It measures 1-3/4” x 1-3/8”. The pin assembly is mounted on a base metal plaque, and is of the old style. It rattles a little, but is firmly in place...

This coin bracelet made it out of Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution, along with the silver bell pin which I also have listed on Trocadero. It consists of 24 coins, dating from 1893 – 1910, but most of them are from 1905. The wearable length is 7-1/8”, and it weighs .93 oz, or 26.3 g. I’ve cleaned off some tarnish, but it could be cleaned more should the new owner desire it...

Here is a ring made from an Unger cuff link, with a clear maker’s mark. The decoration is a flower, possibly a poppy, and vine tendrils curling down the sides – really pretty. The cuff link portion is 13/16ths” x ½”, and the band ¼” wide. It is a size 6-1/2. In excellent antique condition with an age-appropriate patina. Note that there are camera reflections and other streaky reflections in some of the photos...

This striking pin is composed of 2 beautifully engraved silver circles and an oval intertwined, and set with ovals of agate of various colors. Agates have been used in jewelry going back into antiquity. They were thought to ward against storms and headaches, attract strength, and to affect dreaming. Queen Victoria became enamored of Scotland during her reign, so everything Scottish became popular during that period (except, perhaps, haggis!), especially post 1848 when she bought Balmoral Castle...

Here is a large oval brooch with beautifully monogrammed initials (which I can’t read). It is marked “STERLING” and has an illegible maker’s mark. Measuring 3” x2-1/8”, it weighs 27.1g or .06oz. It is from the Victorian period, and is in excellent condition, but could use a bit of cleaning if you wish.

This sweet lily pad necklace is a pleasure to wear! It drapes very nicely at base of the neck, measuring 15-1/2” long, with a maximum of ½” in width. It is marked "DANECRAFT STERLING RFG US PAT OFF" and weighs 36.8g or 1.29 oz. In excellent condition, and I believe it was made between 1940 - 1950.

This pendant is enameled in two shades of blue, with a pearl dangle. The front is composed of 3 panels of enamel. The outer ones are in the shape of sweet stylized hearts, in dark blue. The center is a lighter color, and the back is a lovely sky blue. Overall it is in very good condition, though the enamel on the back shows a small amount of wear on the high points. It measures 2” from the top of the bail to the bottom of the pearl. Unmarked. C. 1900. Comes with a 19-1/2” silver chain, not o...

This striking necklace features a central (tested) silver panel with a big labradorite cab, ¾” x 9/16”. The whole panel with dangles measures 13/16” x 1-7/8”. The dangles are set with more labradorite cabs on chains. The wearable length is 24”, and there are 20” worth of labradorite beads, many having the distinctive blue flash for which that stone is known. The clasp has a very pretty flower and leaf design, and it’s stamped 925 on the back. The beads are on knotted string, and t...

This charming portrait in silver, of a wind-swept person in a cloak and hood, is very detailed and just lovely. I tend to think it’s a boy, as the hair seems to be quite short under the hood. The hood itself almost looks more like a cap made from a flower, as seen on fairies in those Victorian children’s books. It measures 1-1/8” wide, is hollow, and is marked “STERLING TOP GERMAN SILVER BACK”. German silver is a kind of base metal. The back is a bit tarnished, has what looks like lit...

Here is a lovely lady with lilies in her hair. Water lilies have symbolized purity, enlightenment, and resurrection. This lady is remarkably similar to a piece made by the Unger Bros., but marked only STERLING – and the stamp is reversed! I believe her to be a copy, but still made around 1900 – this seemed to have happened fairly frequently back in the day. She has the patina of age, a pin stem assembly which is correct for the turn of the last century, and the back of the pin has some scra...

What fun! A bat designed to fly across your wrist! It is marked Sterling, and with a fancy “HB”. I haven’t been able to track down the maker, and I’m not sure of the age. The silver is hammered, and the bat itself has really nice texturing and detail work. It weighs 30.1g or 1.07 oz, and is 5/8” wide. The interior measures 2-1/4” across, and it will be easy to bend it to fit your wrist. In excellent condition. Please read this description and look at the photos very carefully, as we...

It consists of 50 old-cut diamonds, 5 rubies, and 3 pearls, all mounted on silver-topped rose gold. Weighing in at 5.7 g, it measures 1-3/4” x 7/8”. In excellent antique condition, and so lovely!
