Mid-1800s yellow gold drop earrings. These appear to bear the hallmark of the city of Altenburg, Thuringia, Germany, pre-1886. The purity designation is 800, which indicates near 20K gold (19.2K actually). My tester indicates greater than 18K gold. Each has a nice dark blue sapphire in the middle of a gold "flower" and a pearl at the top. The sapphires are about 6mm diameter; the pearls about 4mm. Total weight is about 3.2 gm (0.10 TOz). Drop length is about 1 3/8 inch...

This is a beautiful Art Deco era Bar Pin. It has three clear mine-cut diamonds set in the 14-karat white gold filigree setting. The center diamond is approx. 3.5mm (3/16 carat) and the outer two diamonds are approx. 2.5mm (1/16 carat). There are two dark blue calibre cut triangular sapphires, one on each side of the center diamond. The pin clasp is an odd type that was used around the turn of the century, but I would estimate the age at sometime in the 1920s...

Beautiful flower with petals and leaves made of faux tortoise (celluloid?) or nut casing. The flower is suspended on a spring on the end of the hairpin so that it trembles. The flower is about 2 inches by 2 3/4 inches and 3/4 inch deep – very 3-dimensional. The spring attaches to a 3 3/8 inch long two-prong hairpin. Condition is excellent for such an old, delicate piece. One petal has a spot of surface damage and one leaf is partially loose...

This is a Victorian Mourning Watch Fob Locket Pendant with layered onyx on one side and carnelian on the other, all set in 10K gold. The locket was sealed when I got it, but I opened it.

There is an example of this type of locket on page 200 of Collecting Victorian Jewelry by C. Jeanenne Bell (KP Books ©2004)...

Beautifully made natural pearl starburst pendant. This piece appears to have been designed with a couple of uses in mind. The matching pearl bale makes it an obvious pendant. But there is also a threaded stud on the back and two nail-head pins which indicate that it was designed to also be worn on a lapel, probably as a watch pin by replacing the bale with the hanging watch. (We do not have the screw that attached to the stud, but that would be easy to replace.) The starburst has eight points an...
