This heavily engraved silver pin is from the estate of Helen Aman, who escaped from the Bolshevik Revolution to (eventually) settle in California - it was one of her childhood jewels.

This elegant ring comes right out of the Art Deco era of Downton Abbey. The diamond is a very sparkly “transitional” cut diamond (one that is between old European Cut and modern round brilliant cut).
