    USD$295.00

    Amethyst & Diamanté Earrings from Austria

    , ,
    These vintage amethyst earrings feature three rows of vertically-set stones. In the middle are two deep-purple baguettes with a round diamanté on top and a faceted, teardrop-shaped diamanté at the bottom. On either side of the middle, the pattern is repeated but with a single baguette. The setting is rhodium-plated metal shaped to hold the stones together, making each pendant one piece. A single, faceted, round diamanté sits at the earlobe. These 1930s Art Deco earrings from Austria are all-original screw-backs and can be modified for pierced ears. The color combination is rich, regal, and easy-to-wear.

    Amethyst & Diamanté Silver Leaf Brooch by Miriam Haskell

    , ,
    This silver leaf brooch is an unusual and elegant 1950s creation by Miriam Haskell. It has pale-amethyst-glass nuggets set on a bed of layered, etched silver-tone leaves. Diamantés and beads of pale lavender and clear glass also adorn this luscious piece. I love the way the leaves curl around the large stones. This amazing brooch was in my personal collection, and I am now reluctantly offering it to you.

    Amethyst Earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,
    These amethyst costume earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli feature the single, large, emerald-cut stones that were so popular in the 1940s. Although classic and classy, this pair of ear clips is really hard to photograph. The stones are open back (without any green, as the photos may suggest) in a silver-tone setting. The actual color is a deep purple. The faux pearl bracelet with a similar clasp by the same maker, which came with the earrings, will be included with this purchase. (The clasp of the bracelet is lovely, but the quality of the pearls is disappointing, and the strands need re-stringing – hence, the no-cost offer.) Earrings like these never go out of style!

  • Brooch dress clips with amethysts in rose gold
    Center of Duette
    USD$295.00

    Amethyst, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling Duette

    , ,
    This brooch/dress clips looks like folded fabric crowned with jewels. It is made of rose-gold-plated sterling silver edged with diamanté accents. At the center of each side is a row of amethyst-glass navettes topped with a row of diamanté. This Duette, which was created for Coro’s high-end line, can be worn as a brooch or as separate dress clips. Their double-prong fasteners work well with heavier fabrics, such as wool blazers and dresses. My camera picked up two stones that appear to be a different shade of purple, but this difference cannot be seen by the naked eye. You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro's name.

    Amethyst, Diamanté & Rose-Gold Brooch by Pennino Bros.

    , ,
    This vintage rose gold brooch is a striking Retro Modern piece made by Pennino Bros. in two layers. The top is a pavé ribbon of rhodium-plated metal that’s edged with faceted, oval amethyst-glass stones topped with tiny diamanté. The center is cinched with rose-gold plated metal. The second layer is a furled rose-gold ribbon that’s attached to the top with a tiny screw. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. This brooch is not flat – the four corners of the bottom layer fold under, as curls of ribbon or fabric would. The back shows the high-quality, complex construction characteristic of this maker.

    USD$395.00

    Amethyst, Diamanté & Vermeil Bouquet Brooch

    , ,
    This Corocraft brooch is just stunning! This Adolph Katz-designed piece has four pavé stems topped with faceted, oval amethyst-glass stones that are gathered through the center of a flower with diamanté-rimmed gold-plated sterling silver petals. The gold-plating on the flower is perfect – the difference in tone you see is from the camera’s reflection. What an outstanding example of the Retro Modern style! I have photographed the brooch in the horizontal position, as it appears in the patent drawing, but you could also wear it vertically (as shown in the second photo). This jewel, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, is rich in contrasting colors and was in my personal collection. Wear it on the lapel of a blazer, and I guarantee you’ll be noticed!

    Aquamarine & Vermeil Sterling Flower Pin

    , ,
    This aquamarine flower pin in gold-washed sterling silver is bold and beautiful. It features a faceted, round glass stone set on each of the flower’s five petals. This tall (4-inch) piece was made by Hess-Appel under their Jollé trademark without the accent (which was used only in their advertisements). The stem and two leaves are curled a bit, a characteristic of the 1940s Retro Modern style. The finish is in great shape. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. If statement pieces, which are in vogue right now, are your style, this jewel is for you!

  • Theodor Fahrner bracelet with gilded sterling & aquamarines
    1920s-1930s filigree bracelet by Theodor Fahrner
    USD$1,495.00

    Aquamarine & Gilt Sterling Filigree Theodor Fahrner Bracelet

    , ,
    This Theodor Fahrner bracelet is spectacular! Each gilded-sterling silver link with corded wire spirals holds a collet-set faux aquamarine. This fabulous Art Deco jewel is an excellent example of the type of filigree this maker is known for. The book cited as a reference indicates that the filigree pieces were made post-1932, but the same source dates the maker’s mark to the 1920s. I don’t think the date matters – this bracelet is exquisite! It has a box clasp and safety catch. Scroll down to see a sterling Fahrner necklace that looks lovely with this piece.

  • Aquamarine earrings by Pennino Bros.
    Flirty 1940s earrings by Pennino Brothers
    USD$245.00

    Aquamarine Floral Earrings by Pennino Bros.

    , ,
    These aquamarine earrings were made by Pennino Bros. in the 1940s. The curled, flirty flower petals in gold-washed metal are the same shape and finish this maker used in a series of 1947 brooches called Sunburst. The glass stone settings are the same as their Bulrush brooch and earrings set from the same year. Both were made in vermeil sterling. According to Brunialti, the patent pending mark on these earrings refers to the clip mechanism, as these designs were not patented. Because the sterling mark is on the ear clip only, I can't say for sure that this pair is sterling silver. These details are just for background – all Pennino jewels are divine! And by facing each other, these earrings frame your face to perfection. Please note that bright spots are merely lighting reflections.

    This Coro bracelet was an engagement gift from the former owner’s fiancé in 1945. It had remained in the family until the couple’s son sold it to me. A well-crafted Retro Modern design by Adolph Katz for Coro’s high-end line, it features aquamarine-glass-stone centers and diamanté set in gold-plated sterling silver with a fold-over clasp. The safety chain is a replacement. This piece is another wonderful example of period design and manufacture from one of the best!

    This aquamarine brooch by Mazer Bros. is a fine example of the Retro Modern style. Tall and graceful, this substantial, stylized flower features a large, faceted cushion-cut glass stone as its focal point. The gold-washed, sterling silver setting is further embellished with four, faceted oval-cut stones along with pavé-accented gold swirls. This pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. Pieces of this size with a gold-plated finish often don’t survive as well as this brooch has. But costume jewelry was well-made in the 1940s by companies of this maker’s stature. Note that any color variations in metal seen in the photos are only camera reflections.

    Baroque Pearl & Amethyst Bead 1970s Long Necklace by Miriam Haskell

    ,
    This Miriam Haskell pearl necklace is a beautiful example of this maker’s work. The long strand of faux cream baroque pearls and pearl bead spacers is interspersed with faceted amethyst glass beads. The pearls are textured and somewhat varying in size. Wear this piece as a single long strand or doubled, depending on your neckline and the look you want to create. Although I usually prefer earlier vintage jewels, this beautiful necklace was part of my personal collection because it is so elegant, timeless and versatile. The wear to the nacre of some pearls does not detract in any way from the lovely appearance of this piece.

    These baroque pearl earrings have a large, cream-colored glass pearl center encircled by a ring of small, matching round glass pearls.

    Black & Silver Beaded 1930s Handbag

    This 1930s handbag is just gorgeous! It is covered in black beads with a silver bead decoration on the front and back. The top handle is also covered in black beads. Aside from the lovely floral design, what makes this bag extraordinary is the decorative top of the silver metal frame. The fretwork is continued on the clasp, which hangs in the front. The inside has a smooth, shiny fabric lining with a pocket on each side. One holds a two-sided 2 ½” x 1 5/8” mirror with beveled edges. The high-quality of this unusual bag is felt in its weight. I confess that I'm guessing at the date of the purse, but I don't think that matters. What a lovely and distinctive evening accessory!

    A beautiful example of Machine Age design that you will love. This vintage black Bakelite necklace features six curved links set with diamantés that alternate with Bakelite (or Galalith) links with pointed tops. Because the jeweled links are curved, the centerpiece follows the curve of your neck instead of laying out in a straight line.

    Black Enamel & Diamanté ‘Rose of Seville’ Brooch & Earrings

    , , ,
    In this vintage rose brooch, Boucher crafted a lovely three-dimensional flower in black-enameled lattice trimmed with round diamanté. The stem of the rose is adorned with baguettes. The rhodium-plated setting closes with a roll-over safety clasp. The matching ear clips, which are just as well-designed, are a bonus. This incredibly-detailed 1950s set deserves its elegant name: Rose of Seville. Wear the brooch with real or faux diamond stud earrings. Or, if you like the style of the decade, wear the pieces together. Either approach will make your outfit memorable. Dazzling jewels for those who like to wear cool colors.

    Brown & Golden Topaz Pendant Earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli

    These brown and gold topaz earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli feature multiple stones in a gold-tone setting. At the top, a large, faceted, round golden-topaz-glass stone is positioned to adorn your earlobe. This stone is linked to a smaller, faceted, round brown-topaz-glass stone, which is connected to the setting of the pendant. This focal point – the pendant – is a large, faceted, open-back, brown-topaz-glass stone in an ornate setting. Its top is crowned with diamanté; the bottom rests on a scroll accented with another brown topaz. Please note that the dark striations in the large stones shown by my camera are not visible when the earrings are worn. Though not signed with the maker’s name, these ear clips are marked with the utility patent for one type of finding Schiaparelli used. The design of these pendants is undoubtedly hers – the matching signed bracelet has been sold. A perfect pair for those who wear warm colors.
