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.
“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 in like a scepter with a purple red stone. I believe this is brass, but I am not sure. It is an interesting piece and the look certainly hearkens to the Middle Ages. It is marked, “Miracle” on the back. It measures 3” tall X 3/4” wide at the widest point. The pin and roll clasp are in good working order. The brooch is worn consistent with a vintage piece.
This is a very stylish and unusual bracelet with thousands of different color beads and sequins. The colors are gold, brown, mauve, and copper. It sparkles and is also very comfortable because it is made on an elastic base. However, it has a lobster clasp with an adjustable chain. This is a versatile and chic bracelet with a great deal of panache.
These earrings are covered with gold sparkle with black curving lines in between - almost like a path leading to the Yellow Brick Road. The dangles are about 1-1/4” square and hang from silver half-domes. They are black enamel on the back and are a fun addition to any wardrobe. These would be perfect with jeans or a black dress. They are probably from the ‘80’s, but in good vintage condition.
Unusual is the word that comes to mind about this necklace. It is obviously very old and has green glass beads intermixed with silver ones. I am guessing that this is probably Czechoslovakian glass and the period is 1930’s. Some of the silver is worn and you will probably want to replace, but it is so different that I think it is worth preserving. The center green glass bead is a cube and marbled colors of green, sepia, and gold. The other smaller green beads are tiny shapes that look like little bows. I am pricing this for the beads only because the silver pieces are not in good condition. It measures 24” long and has a barrel clasp.
Copper and enameled copper jewelry were very popular in the 1950’s through the 1960’s. Much of the popularity is attributed to Jerry Fels who started Renior copper jewelry, and later the Matisse line of copper. These cufflinks are abstract in design with a grey background to swirls of black, red, and white. The design is typical of the period. They measure 1-1/4” long X ¾” at the widest point. They are in very good vintage condition with no damage to the enamel or the cuff link finding.
These gold domed dangle earrings look like they are gold plated, but I cannot be sure. They have an all-over textural pattern of vines and flowers and are capped by a plain gold edge. They have nice clip-back pierced findings that make them secure and also comfortable. They measure ¾” in diameter and are about ¼” high. These are quite lovely and look like the real thing.
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 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. They are in good vintage condition with some wear showing on the gold, which you can see in the photos. A classic to go with everything.
Blue never looked prettier than the 5 shades of stones on these graceful replicas of a style of the past. The large stone at top is a blue “opal”, while the “star sapphire” leaf perches under it. There are two or three shades of blue rhinestones on the other flowers and even on the tiny dangle at the bottom of the trailing branch. And one little flower is made of “pearls” with a turquoise blue rhinestone center. The goldtone metal is cast in fine detail and the design is captivating on these clip back earrings.. The flower branch hangs from the top round flower and another dangle is at the very bottom. They are 1-3/4” long X ¾” wide at the widest point. These are quite lovely.
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.
1950’s Copper Earrings with Movable Hearts Shiny copper earrings from the ‘50’s had a scalloped edge and mounted in the center is a movable dangle that looks like a heart. These are quite old, but in very good condition. They even have the original lacquer finish on them that has held up well. From this era, they are, of course, screw backs. They are somewhat of an oval shape that is 1-1/4’X 1”. The dangles are about ¾” long.
