Such a cute cabinet size of 15” tall, this little SFBJ is a later period Jumeau with an unmistakable face like a 1907; an adorable little open mouth smile! She is on her original fully articulating wooden with matching number 4 on the body corresponding to the back of her head. Her bisque head is fine without any cracks, hairlines or repairs; there show some wear about the earring holes. The cork pate is glued on and her glass blue eyes were set. Her body shows some cracking and missing compo...

This gorgeous vintage demi-parure of a heart shaped brooch with matching earrings, was done by Robert of Robert's Originals, who used to work for Miriam Haskell until he started his own jewelry business. I've never seen another set like it before, so I suspect he didn't make many of them. It is a bevy of a beauty with lots of blue and opaline glass stones set with mirror-back rhinestones onto a plated metal piece. Even the back is lovely with filigree metal work on the pin and earrings. All t...

I love these early Christian Dior earring made by Henkle and Gross for them back in 1968. These are a very rare pair done in the fabulous mogul style known as 'Jewels of India' where they used carved precious gemstones. These are made from molded glass stones with deliberate striations in the glass to imitate real amethysts flowers with jade glass stems. Then bright rhinestones around the bulbous melon type stones. These are in excellent vintage condition with just some wear to the clips. Th...

Fabulous Dior jewel by Henkle and Grosse for Dior in the 1980s. The thick gold plated chain is set with flawed glass cabochons surrounded by a circle of white and bright rhinestones each in their own cartouche. The glass stones are supposed to imitate a ruby, emerald and sapphire. These pieces were done in a similar manner of what Bvlgari was doing at the time with real gemstones. And the look in quite convincing. The bracelet is in excellent condition, measuring a bit more than 7” in leng...

I could not resist this beautiful doll when I saw her my heart practically stopped! I thought she was so beautiful, particularly her face but her body is also very lovely. She is a one of a kind artist bisque doll, completely hand made. Even her body is bisque and hand painted. Her face is beautiful with big glass blue set eyes on a head that can move from side to side and her body is movable at the arm and leg. Her bisque legs are shapely and slender, along with her body, representing a sexy...

Here is a lovely little treasures from about 1780-1790; it was originally a shoe buckle but sometime in its history it was converted into a pin with a locking c-clasp. It’s wonderful that the jeweler who added it left the original buckle as well! So it can still be used as a clip or a brooch. It measures about 1 ¼” long by 1” wide, curved style as expected. It is unmarked for metal content but tests for European silver grade at 800. All the original paste are still present in their hig...

Here is a fabulous fake! It is very convincing as a wedding ring and that’s why I bought it, so it would look like my fake husband loved me enough to get me a decent wedding ring, lol. It is a solitary paste stone in the middle set with four prongs on a simple decorative sterling silver metal band which could pass as white gold, at least I think that was the idea behind it. The design of the band is indicative of the 1920s - 1940s era. What I loved about the ring is that only the very point...

These type of slender blown glass French pearl long earrings are so hard to find anymore since they easily were broken. That's what makes these rare and special. They are very simple, just long blown glass faux pearl earrings drops from a simple glass pearl top with silver tone metal clips. But when they are wore, oh, so elegant! Neither is signed, but I had them sent to me from a France many years ago and never had a chance to wear them but I always admired them whenever I would unwrap them ...

A very unique costume jewel from the early Art Deco period, it is a row of glass beads that were hand knotted and look like the lustrous, expensive black pearls but these are actually a type of carnival glass! So they won't peal like other faux pearls of the era. They have a luminescence of real black pearls, so much that the one time that I wore it people were insisting that is what it was! But they were wrong, these are glass, quite excellent and rare for what it is, not a rare pearl neckla...

Beautiful, high end, thick green poured glass stones, aka Gripoix (so-called because it was her jewelry making process and not by the House of Gripoix), set in gold plated closed back metal with clip so they are very comfortable. There is a gold plated hand soldered rope around the edges of it indicative that they were completely hand made. These look sort of like what KJL or YSL did but are unsigned as to whom made them. They measure about 1" across and 1/2" high. Lovely deep forest green g...

Harder to find vintage French Countess Cissy Zoltowska paste jewelry fur clip sex with large foil back paste stones in an oxidized black metal, pie crust crumped back, claw set stones. It is stamped DEPOSE on the back top of the two-pronged clip and exactly what we already know is her design, even though it is only signed DEPOSE (for France) which would be correct for her earlier jewels. The stones are layered in a flower type design and it measures about 2” across and ¾” in height. It i...

This very rare avant-garde dress clip is attributed to Countess CIS, aka Countess Cissy Zoltowska. It is one of her earlier pieces constructed with the tentacle arms reaching out on either side of the three rows of very French curved invisible set emerald cut red glass stones in the center, the middle row being placed higher than the ones of either side. Each of the gold plated wired ‘arms’ terminate in white paste jewel each set with four tiny prongs. It is exactly how she made her earlier ...

Here is a nice little French jewel with faux glass pearls and poured glass ‘jewels’ wired into a gold tone metal. It is in excellent condition and measures about 1” across and almost 2” long measuring down the elongated drop pearl. It is unsigned for maker but was sent to me from France and I have every confidence it is a French piece, probably circa sometime in the 1950s when clips were still popular in use for dresses, furs, and shoes. The whole of it is a fabulous little French pie...
