    Black Enamel, Diamanté & Sterling 1950s Brooch or Pair of Fur Clips by DeRosa

    , ,

    This enamel brooch with diamanté embellishments in a sterling silver setting was made by Ralph DeRosa in the 1950s. It can be worn as a single brooch or as separate fur clips. The photos show a third option: one clip worn as a pendant on a black rubber cord; you may prefer to use a gold chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless-steel twist lock (which is shown in the photo) is included with this purchase. I’ve also shown a single clip placed on my white gold and diamond chain, to show you how beautiful they look together. This chain, obviously, is not included. I would wear faux or real diamond studs with this gorgeous piece.

    Blue Blown Glass Bead Art Deco Necklace with Rings

    , ,

    This vintage glass bead necklace has clusters of blown-glass beads in shades of blue wound together with wire and linked with clear glass rings. Although the spring-ring clasp doesn’t provide a clue to the necklace’s origin, I believe it was made in Europe. This necklace was recently restrung by my expert jeweler. This wreath-like piece from my personal collection is a lovely topping to a round-neck garment.

    Pearl & Blown Glass Flower French 1950s Earrings

    , ,

    Clusters of faux pearls with blown glass flowers and leaves form these 1950s French ear clips. The design and style of the beads remind me of the work of Louis Rousselet, although the earring backs are not typical of his work. However, the findings I’m familiar with would have been too small for this creation. Please note that although these earrings are not mirror images, the lack of symmetry does not detract from their lovely appearance. What a great choice for a bride!

    Red & Black Galalith German Machine Age Earrings by Jakob Bengel

    , ,

    These Jakob Bengel earrings feature raised black Galalith triangles with red Galalith slots. The chrome setting envelopes the stones. A stack of chrome disks completes the design. I purchased these earrings from a Bengel expert in the UK. They came with their unmarked lever-backs for pierced ears, so I am unaware of the metal content. If you require sterling silver, a competent jeweler could switch the ear wires. Scroll down to see Jakob Bengel pieces that work beautifully with these earrings.
