Quickview Vintage Necklaces, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis citrine and topaz necklace from the 1920s has faceted, square-cut stones set in silver-tone frames. The shape and construction of the piece is known today as a chicklet necklace. When it was made, it was called a channel necklace. The alternating warm shades make this piece very wearable with a variety of colors. Another great Art Deco necklace from my personal collection.

Quickview Vintage Earrings, 1950s Jewelry, Christian Dior JewelryThese Christian Dior earrings feature textured, gold-plated ropes intertwined with faceted golden-topaz and green- tourmaline glass stones and AB diamanté. (Swarovski, in collaboration with Dior, invented aurora borealis – a coating that adds iridescence to stones.) The color combination and elaborate hook-and-eye construction of these 1950s ear clips are worthy of the maker’s name. Elegant, classic, and perfect for a woman who looks best in warm colors. These earrings looked amazing when they walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019.USD$245.00
Quickview Vintage Bracelets, 1940s Jewelry, Hobé JewelryFive round plaques form this gorgeous 1940s sterling silver bracelet by Hobé. Each open-back circle is adorned with layered flowers, buds, and leaves. Each also has a faceted, round, collet-set citrine-glass stone. Even the connecting links are topped with tiny buds. This substantial bracelet has a concealed clasp and a safety chain. This piece is hand-made with superb quality, as are all pieces by this maker.
