This brass cuff is incised with a design that is colored with dark blue and copper color. I don't know the origin of this bracelet, but it appears to be east Indian and is probably from the 1960's or '70's. The design is a step and repeat pattern that is very graphic. It measures 9-1/4" around and is 2" wide and 2-3/4" in diameter. This is a very strong and eye-catching piece with a tribal influence.
Triad is a Canadian jewelry manufacturer that made these lovely luminescent earrings that are so captivating. They are set in copper, which is used to resemble rose gold. The setting is very intricate with leaves and a regular pattern of prongs around the edge of the large, dark stone. This one large cut stone is mounted in the metal base with an Aurora Borealis white stone at the bottom of the earring. These are very unusual and fancy enough for after 5 wear. These clip-ons are marked, “TRIAD”, and measure about 1” tall and 5/8” wide. They are circa 1970’s and are in very good vintage condition.
This unusual and elegant copper brooch and matching earrings have a stylized Celtic design. Each piece is comprised of swirled and abstract copper designs that are bordered by twisted and flattened thick copper wire circles. The back of the pin has black enamel as is common with copper jewelry. Copper jewelry was very popular especially in the 1950’s-1960’s, and this set is probably circa 1950’s. The brooch measures 2-1/4” diameter and the earrings are about 1” diameter. These are in excellent vintage condition and are a very handsome set to wear on darker shades.
Bracelets have always been in fashion and have a great history of symbolism, as well. Originally made of found objects such as wood, stone, bones and plant materials, bracelets have evolved in both materials and design. Many historic bracelets were created to serve religious and decorative purposes, as well as a symbol of wealth and prosperity. Today, they take on some of these same characteristics. One of the earliest styles of bracelets was the bangle. This extraordinary bangle bracelet is simple in its geometric provenance and stunning simplicity. The square measures 1” wide and each of the four sides is about 2” long. I believe it was 22K gold plated, but I cannot remember the designer. I have had it since about 1978-’79. It is in good vintage condition with scratches for wear and some discoloration on the inside. Without closely examining, it still looks amazing on and I always got compliments when I wore it. This would look perfect with an Erwin Pearl necklace I also have for sale.

Tiny ivory wide hoops looks like real ivory although they are most likely Lucite from the 1940’s. The Napier stamp still is readable on one of the screw posts. These are fabulous, classic accents with a texture of engraved lines. They measure 1” diameter and are 3/4” wide with gold hinged screw backs that are easier and more comfortable to wear. They are extremely lightweight and in excellent vintage condition.
Sparkling and elegant, these earrings are from my own collection from the ‘80’s, but still in great condition. No stones missing or any other damage. They have rows and rows of small rhinestones with a small gold break that is raised gold under the pearls. These earrings are 1-7/8” tall X 1-7/8” at the widest point and are for pierced ears.
These silvertone earrings are decorated with a gold coin replica that gives them an old world feel. The silver is a hammered finish and they are clip backs. They measure 1-1/9" in diameter.

This little watch is as eye-catching as it is understated . It has the look of being hand crafted although it is not and is made of a silver color metal that may have some nickel in it because it does tarnish. The band is most intriguing with its basket texture and hinges half way around the band and then again at the closure. It closes with and nicely-done clasp that is strong and snaps with a “click”. The watch still works and keeps good time. I believe I bought it just prior to 1980, about 1978ish. It looks like a bracelet because of the design of the band, which makes it more a piece of jewelry rather than a utilitarian timepiece. It measure 6-1/2” wearable length and the band is ¼” wide. The watch itself is ¾” X 2-1/8”. As a bonus, it is quite comfortable to wear.
