Here is a lovely lady with lotuses or water lilies in her hair. The lotus, a variety of water lily, has symbolized purity, enlightenment, and resurrection. This lady is remarkably similar to a piece made by the Unger Bros., but marked only STERLING – and the stamp is reversed. We believe her to be a copy, but still made around 1900 – this seemed to have happened fairly frequently back in the day...

This engaging portrait in silver, of a wind-swept person in a cloak and hood, is very detailed and just lovely. We think it’s a boy (unusual!), as the hair seems to be quite short under the hood. The hood itself looks like a cap made from a flower, as seen on fairies in Victorian children’s books. It measures 1-1/8” wide, is hollow, and is marked “STERLING TOP GERMAN SILVER BACK”. German silver is a white metal...

Swirling flowers and a bud highlight this mixed-metal sash buckle. The silver plate shows some wear - yellow metal shows through at some of the high points. We believe the gold to be about 9kt, and it’s also a plating of some type. The buckle measures 3 x 2-1/2" and weighs in at 47.5 grams. Unmarked. In overall very good condition, except for the few worn spots already mentioned; the gold might be a little worn in a few places too – it’s difficult to tell because of the texturing...

Plique a jour, that unusual, difficult, and beautiful enameling technique that gives a stained glass effect, dates from the 15th century. It was used by Cellini, then revived in the late 1800s in France. This plique a jour pendant is centered with an oval opal and accented with eight colorless brilliants and a fresh water pearl dropper. The translucent enamel is an unusual and lovely blue in color. The metal is 900 silver, suggesting that the piece is most likely German or Austrian in origin...

Fanciful? Unusual? Quirky? Absolutely! This beautiful pair of scarab cuff links is also, should you believe, a protective amulet (according to ancient Egyptian lore).

The Art Nouveau setting of this exquisite antique ring dates it to the 1890s, when French scientist Louis Bouton began cultivating blister pearls -- each of which took about two years to develop. The remarkable gems soon charmed jewelry designers on the prowl for something new, but the later and simpler Arts and Crafts style had taken hold by the time there was a reliable supply of pearls. Thus, this elaborate mounting is highly unusual...

No doubt you've seen the tall Victorian rings with three stones in a dainty stack -- well, this dazzler not has the three stones (round purple amethyst cabochons), but has them set in a veritable totem pole of swirling Art Nouveau lady portrait heads. It's a whopper -- nearly two inches tall by an inch wide -- and reached us from an estate in New Orleans, always a top source for breathtaking jewelry.

For dating, I'm torn between true Nouveau and Revival...
