This is a little copper cuff that has a step-and-repeat pattern of diamond shapes and lines etched into it. It is curved in a convex shaped to give it more depth and volume when worn. Although it looks substantial, it is really very light and comfortable. My estimate is it is circa 1970’s. It is in good vintage condition with some very minimal wear shown. (You can tell the condition from the photos). It measures 7” outside circumference with a 1+” opening. It could be worn by a woman or a man with a small wrist. It would look great with other bracelets.
“Miracle” is the trade name of A. Hill & Company LTD., of Birmingham, England, which started manufacturing jewelry in 1946 and is still the leading designer of jewelry in the Celtic, Irish, and Scottish styles today. Each piece is authentic in terms of evolving from actual historical and archaeological information. Jewelry from as early as AD600 have been found that has been used to preserve the design and character of the old Scottish, Celtic, and English legacies. This brooch is designed with a large blue stone that was probably intended to emulate chalcedony. It has a mounting that is decorated with zigzags and arrow points. It is a very authentic design as are all of the Miracle pieces and probably is Scottish in origin. It is marked “Miracle” on the back. The pin and rolling catch work well, and the brooch is in excellent vintage condition. It measures 2-1/4” X 1-1/4” and is convex so that the back looks like it is scooped out.
This lovely little bracelet is adorned with atylized leaf with tendrils and berries ib it. It a very well crafted, but has not markings, so I can't be sure that it is sterling. It measures 5-1/2" around and it about 1" wide at the widest point. This bracelet can be adjusted a litte

This little cowboy is such a great example of the copper art of the ‘50’s from its “tough guy” expression to the bowed legs. He is really almost a cartoon character with his expression and simple design of the figure. The details of his six guns, kerchief, six-gallon hat perched over his eyes, and details on his chaps make him a very charming figure. The pin is pressed and formed to slightly curve outward to give it a fuller dimension. He measures 2-3/4” tall X ¾” at the widest point. Copper is one of my favorite metals and the contrast on fall fabrics looks especially nice. He is an enchanting one to collect and keep.
This bracelet is very old and made of brass with a simple design of incised lines. My estimate is it is pre-1970. It is quite large 1-3/4" across the outside curvature. Inside diameter is 2-5/8" and the inside band is 1" deep. It has some heft, weighing 95.3 grams. It is very old, although I don't know the exact age. It came from a Nomadic tribe in the Middle East and was handcrafted by an artisan and is well made and is in excellent vintage condition. It is a very striking and showy bracelet and could be worn alone or with other bangles.
This bracelet looks like one from David Yurman because of the classic ribbed design, gold and silver, and accented by a faceted black “stone”. It looks very expensive and is substantially made with a strong spring for the clamper action. It measures about 7” inside circumference and is 1-1/4” in front, tapering to ¾” in the back. It has a faceted black stone that is probably plastic. The bracelet is really classic in design and classy in presentation. It is truly striking.
Ivory in color and faceted stones (that I think is chalcedony) make these earrings really unusual. They are faceted with so many planes that they sparkle when they turn. For pierced ears, they have nice patinaed closed ear hooks. Very nice and go with a lot. About 1" long and 1/2" dia. at the bottom.
This is an unusual brooch from about the 1960’s that has many layers of leaves stacked on top of each other. Because some are have texture and patina, they contrast with others that have smoother finishes. Each of the 9 leaves has notched edges that fall gracefully over each other. It is in good vintage condition. The pin back has been replaced, but it works perfectly. It measures about 2”X2”. This piece would be great on fall colors!
This beautiful necklace is dainty, yet expresses an old-world sensibility in the thoughtful design. It has eight strands of tiny black jet bugle beads sprinkled with smoked glass teardrop “pearls”. It measures 15” of beads with a 3” extender, and is marked, “Ali Khan New York”. The necklace can be worn high at the smallest setting for a choker, depending on your neck size, and it has a bit of a stretchiness to make it more versatile. This necklace is fashionable and chic in its understated elegance.
These are charming dangling earrings for pierced ears with faux turquoise beads that hang from gold brass trellis-like openwork pieces. Give the impression of hand crafted work. They are approximately 2” long from ear to bottom of bead and ½” at the widest point. These are quite nicely designed and look fabulous on.
These vintage 1930-1940’s sterling silver earrings are engraved with elegant flourishes covering the entire surface. The graceful design of these dainty earrings is accented by a scalloped border. They have a shiny silver patina with some darkening. They are marked, "Sterling, WFS”. They are approximately ¾” long and 1/2” wide, and are screw backs. They weigh 3 grams. They were hand etched, formed, and then the back and screws soldered.
