  • Brooch back
    USD$295.00

    Diamanté & Sterling Twisted Bar Brooch by Dorsons

    , ,
    The design of this 1940s Dorsons sterling silver brooch with hand-set diamantés was called a ‘twisted bar pin’. It comes in its original box, marked with the Jubilee trademark used by the maker (aka D. Ornstein & Sons). This jewel is timeless, and it goes with everything! You can even wear it as a barrette in your hair! This brooch was advertised in the December 1, 1947 issue of Life magazine. Scroll down to see a selection of lovely coordinating bracelets.

  • Wedding dress brooch by Frank Hess
    Close-up view of diamantes
    USD$445.00

    Diamanté Floral Brooch by Miriam Haskell

    , ,
    Whether you’re looking for a wedding dress brooch or something unique and elegant for every day, this sparkly jewel is for you. It is identical to the “central motif” of a necklace shown in the Gordon & Pamfiloff book on this maker. There the centerpiece is described as “silver metal leaves edged with rose montées and two large clear rhinestones surrounded by smaller rhinestones”. While the necklace is much more elaborate, this Frank Hess-designed 1950s piece is perfect for today, any time of day! I bought this brooch for myself, but I am now reluctantly offering it to a new home.

    Diamanté French Art Deco Dress Clips or Brooch

    , ,
    These Art Deco dress clips from France are paved in diamanté set in rhodium-plated metal with cut-outs that enhance the design. The clips can be worn together as a brooch. Because the design is symmetrical, I like to wear this type of clip as a pendant on a chain or cord. The last two photos show this option: one with a sterling chain from my jewelry box (not included); the other with a 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord (included with this purchase).

  • Vintage brooch with diamantes & emeralds
    Vintage brooch worn at an angle
    USD$395.00

    Emerald & Diamanté Double Clip Brooch by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,
    This vintage brooch from Hattie Carnegie’s New York fashion house is both beautiful and practical. It has two hearts formed from three layers of diamantés topped with large, round, faceted emerald-glass stones. The setting is rhodium-plated, and the color combination is striking. The layers make this piece very three-dimensional and sparkly. Wear this jewel as a brooch (at different angles, as shown) or as two separate dress clips. The photos show a third option: one clip worn as a pendant on a sterling silver chain (which is not included). A white-gold one would also work well. Or pin the brooch horizontally on a velvet ribbon. How’s that for a three-in-one jewel!

  • Crescent earrings w/gemstones by De Rosa
    Acrostic earrings by De Rosa
    USD$295.00

    Gemstone Crescent Earrings by De Rosa

    , ,
    These crescent earrings with gemstone-colored glass stones were made by Ralph De Rosa. The gems are graduated in size and enhanced with an inner ring of diamantés. The variety of colors makes these ear clips very versatile. Moreover, the faux diamond, emerald, amethyst, ruby, emerald, sapphire and topaz form the word dearest, making these earrings acrostic (i.e., the initials of the stones form a word or name). This type of sentimental jewelry was very popular in the 19th century Victorian era, a style that inspired some 1940s jewelry designers. De Rosa created a Dearest series, which included brooches, in 1949. This maker's pieces are always exceptionally well-made and hard-to-find. A pair of clip cushions is included with this purchase.

  • Glass choker necklace with pearls
    Glass plaques alternating with pearls
    USD$245.00

    Glass Plaque & Pearl Choker

    , ,
    This glass choker necklace is a delicate 1920s Art Deco design. It has trapezoid-shaped plaques of glass molded in a step-pattern and set in rhodium-plated frames. They alternate with barrel-shaped, cream-colored faux pearls. This elegant jewel, which closes with a barrel clasp, goes with just about everything! This choker was made for a slim neck, but the clasp can be replaced with a spring-ring style and chain extender. Upon close inspection with a loupe, I see minor blemishes on two pearls that do not diminish the beauty of this piece.

  • Vintage cuff bracelet by Forstner
    Front of double flexible cuff by Forstner
    USD$395.00

    Gold 1940s Cuff Bracelet by Forstner

    , ,
    This vintage cuff bracelet is a variation of Forstner’s flexible bracelets, a popular style in the 1940s. This piece is formed from a tapering double-row with a decorative, fixed buckle. The polished finish of the center buckle adds a nice contrast to the coiled sides. Jewelry by Forstner was very well-made and has retained its quality. Note that this piece is gold-filled, which means it has a thicker layer of gold than a piece that is gold-plated. This cuff is especially nice because the construction allows it to fit small- to medium-size wrists. Please note that dark areas in the photos are only reflections from the camera. Several Vogue ads for this company’s flexible bracelets in other styles date this cuff from about 1946-1947. Scroll down to see a sterling necklace in the same style by Walter Lampl.

    Golden Topaz, Green Tourmaline & Diamanté Christian Dior Earrings

    , ,
    These Christian Dior earrings feature textured, gold-tone ropes intertwined with faceted golden-topaz and green-tourmaline glass stones and aurora borealis diamantés. (Swarovski invented aurora borealis – a coating that adds iridescence to faceted stones and beads. Dior was one of the first designers to adopt it in his designs.) The color combination and elaborate hook-and-eye construction of these 1950s ear clips are worthy of the maker’s name. Elegant, classic, and perfect for a woman who likes to wear warm colors. These earrings looked amazing when they walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019.
