1930s Jewelry, Unsigned Jewelry, Vintage NecklacesThis melon bead necklace in deep-sapphire-blue raises a simple strand of beads to new heights! Exactly when this piece was made is uncertain, but I associate glass beads molded in the shape of melons with the Art Deco era. This strand of uniformly-sized beads was professionally restrung with knots by my expert jeweler after these photos were taken. It closes with a filigree, gold-tone concealed clasp.

1950s Jewelry, Schreiner Jewelry, Vintage EarringsThese 1950s clip-on earrings with multiple shades, shapes, cuts, and sizes of sapphire glass are another example of Schreiner's genius, even though they are unsigned. The silver-tone setting features his dog-tooth prongs and donut-hole ear clips. These earrings can beautifully accessorize the latest fashion trends as well as your perennial favorites. Wear them with casual, office and evening attire to great acclaim!$ 195
1950s Jewelry, Marcel Boucher Jewelry, Vintage Brooches & PinsThis 1950s bow brooch set in gold-plated metal is another outstanding example of Boucher's work. The pavé curls, open-work sides and square-cut, faceted sapphire-glass stones that form the knot showcase his attention to detail. This brooch closes with a roll-over safety clasp.
