    Coro Duette pin in gold with sapphires & diamanté
    Gold spiral seashells Duette with jewels
    USD$275.00

    Sapphire, Diamanté & Gold Spiral Seashell Coro Duette

    This Coro Duette pin looks like a pair of spiral seashells. The gold-plating is adorned with sapphire-glass baguettes and pavé centers. This Duette, Coro’s name for their double clip brooch, is like a '2-for-1' jewel! Wear it as a brooch or as separate dress clips. The double-prong fastener works well with heavier fabrics, such as wool blazers and dresses. The all-diamanté version of this piece appeared in a 1950 Coro ad in Life with the slogan “the perfect jewel of a gift” and with the price of $10.50! (In 1950, the average U.S. family income was $81.48 a week.) You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro's name.

    Sapphire, Diamanté & Sterling 1940s Bouquet Brooch by Trifari

    Floral bouquets were a popular theme for Trifari and other costume jewelry makers during WWII. This design is vertical in format, with faceted, oval sapphire-glass flowers, diamanté leaves, and silver stems. The setting is rhodium-plated sterling silver. The roll-over safety clasp has been replaced by my expert jeweler. Pieces like this one are easy to wear with modern jewelry – just add simple diamond (faux or real) studs or hoops to complete your jeweled accessories.

    Sterling Art Deco Bracelet by Alice Caviness

    Each of the seven panels on this sterling silver Art Deco bracelet by Alice Caviness features a symbol of ancient Egypt surrounded by filigree and lotus blossoms. The design detail and craftsmanship are exquisite. This bracelet has a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp with a safety catch.

    Tortoise shell link necklace by Miriam Haskell
    1960s Miriam Haskell necklace
    USD$225.00

    Tortoise Shell Bead & Link 1960s Necklace by Miriam Haskell

    This tortoise shell link necklace features large plastic beads, gold-colored end caps, and oblong open links in a 1960s disco-inspired design. This piece closes with a box clasp of Russian-gold filigree, topped with a tortoise-shell-colored bead surrounded by tiny gold-tone balls. In some ways, this necklace challenges my idea of Haskell elegance, but then again many whimsical designs bear her name. I have to admit that I bought this piece, which was made more recently than the usual 1920-1960 scope of this collection, because I wanted to see the French-made links up-close and in-person. I wasn't disappointed. This necklace is no longer available.

    This bracelet has three staggered rows of Bakelite(?) interlinked crescents. The pattern is a variation of the tank-track motif that was popular in the 1930s. The hook clasp disappears when the piece is closed. This classic Machine Age bracelet, which was part of my personal collection, is fun and versatile! If warm colors are your palette, this jewel is for you.

    Vintage turquoise glass earrings w/sapphire accents
    Turquoise & sapphire ear clips by Alice Caviness
    USD$195.00

    Turquoise & Sapphire Earrings by Alice Caviness

    These vintage turquoise glass earrings are an imaginative 1950s design by Alice Caviness. An unusual textured turquoise stone shaped like a thick button with some sparkle is the centerpiece. Glass beads in sapphire blue (coated with aurora borealis) and turquoise set in gold-tone filigree surround half of the turquoise center. The components are mounted (wired?) onto a filigree back that holds the ear clip. The earrings face each other, so they beautifully frame the face when worn. This pair showcases this designer’s clever mix of colors and materials.

    Vintage turquoise glass earrings with pendants
    Turquoise drop ear clips, probably by Louis Rousselet
    USD$185.00

    Turquoise Drop French 1950s Earrings

    These vintage turquoise glass earrings may have been made by Louis Rousselet in the 1950s. They feature a large turquoise art-glass nugget hanging from a matching button-shaped stone designed to adorn the earlobe. The filigree earring backs have the traditional French clips of the era – actually, they and the glass buttons are the same elements as those used by Rousselet. The art glass is stunning, and the color is gorgeous! Although these earrings are no longer available, you may like others by Louis Rousselet, which you can see here.
