This sterling silver brooch by Georg Jensen appears to be quite rare. Two (love?) birds flutter on either side of a sheaf of wheat. They are framed by a silver square measuring 1 1/2 inches. The brooch has Jensen's design number 250. When the the pin stem is worn horizontally, the wheat is on a diagonal. It can be worn as such or equally well on point with the wheat vertical. Condition is excellent; prabably dates to about 1950.

Streamlined and bold sterling and hematite ring by Paloma Picasso for Tiffany. The hematite is gray/black in color with slight iridescence. The matching earrings are dated 1985 so I assume these are of the same period. They are available as item #1350123. The ring is size 6 1/2 but can easily be sized up or down. It can be worn equally well by a man or woman. Condition is excellent.

This Native American (most likely Navajo) ring is the largest I have seen. It measures 2 3/16" tall and 1 5/8" wide. It is interesting to note that because of its large size, the maker had to solder two pieces of silver together to create the backing. It is set with round and pear shaped natural turquoise stones. The ring is size 7 1/2 but can easily be sized up or down. Made circa 1950; found in Arizona.

The inner diameter is 2 1/8" across with an opening of 1"...

Silver master Antonio Pineda is best known for his architectural designs. This wonderful Circles bracelet is in keeping with his fine work. The circles are 3/4"tall. The sturdy clasp is invisibly integrated into the design. Only the safety chain indicates where the clasp is. It is in very good condition. The bracelet is made of 970 silver, higher quality than the 925 standard. It is approximately 7 7/8" in length but difficult to measure precisely because of the safety chain.
