    Alice Caviness brooch with amethyst & peridot flower petals
    Close-up view of brooch center
    USD$185.00

    Amethyst & Peridot Flower 1950s Alice Caviness Brooch

    , ,
    This Alice Caviness brooch from the 1950s has navettes and round glass stones in shades of amethyst and peridot. They are layered like the petals of a flower, with a lovely art-glass stone in both colors at the center. The setting is gold-tone with a roll-over safety clasp. This color combination is unusual and serene. The darkening of the metal in some spots does not diminish the beauty of this piece. I think this designer’s work is often overlooked.

    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!

  • Aquamarine flower pin in gold-washed sterling
    Close-up view of faceted stones
    USD$175.00

    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!

    These blue bead earrings by Hattie Carnegie are an imaginative example of the style that was so popular in the 1950s.

  • Brown and gold topaz earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli
    1950s ornate pendant earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli
    USD$185.00

    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.

  • Dangling wood bead brooch by Miriam Haskell
    Miriam Haskell brooch with wooden coffee-bean-shaped beads
    USD$195.00

    Brown Bead Dangling Brooch by Miriam Haskell

    , ,
    This wood bead brooch is typical of the type of whimsical pieces designed by Frank Hess for Miriam Haskell during World War II. At the top, the coffee-bean-shaped beads form flower petals that surround small round beads with gilt-metal caps. They are all hand-sewn onto a pierced, flat metal foundation. From there, a riot of beads dangle from gilt-metal links attached to three braided-silk cords. This brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, is in remarkable condition and fun to wear!

  • Silver filigree bangle with citrine center stone
    Filigree & citrine 1920s hinged bracelet
    USD$195.00

    Citrine & Silver Filigree Bangle

    , ,
    This silver filigree bangle with intricately-pierced metal has a beautifully faceted, cushion-cut citrine-glass stone as its centerpiece. Wholesale jewelry catalogs of the 1920s described the finish on these bracelets as “permanent white” (i.e., they were designed to not tarnish). In fact, the piece is probably plated with chromium. This hinged bracelet has diamanté accents. Although most have darkened, their condition does not detract from the beauty of this bracelet. This jewel closes with a concealed clasp and safety chain. A dainty, elegant, and well-made addition to any jewelry wardrobe. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist. Please note the bracelet length (6 3/8") and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece.

    Citrine & Vermeil Sterling German Brooch

    , ,
    This vintage German brooch in gold-washed sterling silver is highly-decorated. Its focal point is a flower with a faceted, round citrine-glass stone at the center. The twisted metal decoration on the sides gives this piece a bit of a Machine Age-feel. The markings indicate that this brooch was handmade in Germany, using sterling with a higher silver content (935) than the 925 North American standard. Please note that gold plating on the center flower is in tact, even though the photos suggest wear. A petite and lovely jewel.

    Diamanté & Sterling Line Bracelet by Otis

    This Otis sterling bracelet is a lovely example of an Art Deco line bracelet, the forerunner of today's tennis bracelet. It features faceted, square-cut diamanté channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver. Engraved edges and a diamanté-embellished fold-over clasp complete the design. The excellent articulation speaks to its high-quality construction, which actually was the same as that used by Wachenheimer Bros. (Read about the companies' connection.) Bracelets in this style (known as flexible bracelets in that era) were all the rage in the 1920s-1930s and were typically worn in multiples. You can see this one paired with other line bracelets in the photos. Although the stones have aged a bit, this jewel still has lots of sparkle. Scroll down to see coordinating pieces.
