14k Lingerie or Baby Pin (item #1428450, detailed views)

14k Lingerie or Baby Pin (item #1428450, detailed views)

Here is a pretty little pin which has an interestingly textured top, like stylized waves or cross hatching. It measures 7/8” x 1/8”, and weighs 1.0g. Unmarked, it tests as 14kt. Circa 1900 and in excellent condition. The photos are part of the description so please examine them carefully. Thanks! Shipping, handling & insurance within the USA included.

Belle Epoch France: 18kt Gold White Enamel Brooch (item #1428216, detailed views)

Here is a very classic brooch, in the style of Lucien Gautrait, featuring a ribbon and flower motif, with a ring of white enamel in the center. The pearl on the dangle may be a replacement (many dangles have had to be replaced over the years). The brooch is marked with the French eagle for 18k gold and partial owl marks with “73”, indicating a piece that was imported into France post 1893 and assayed in the town of Rouen. There is also what looks like a blurry French maker’s mark, so…

Cannetille Amethyst Lavalier 10kt Gold (item #1428113, detailed views)

This lovely (unmarked but tested) 10kt gold jewel is from the early 1800s (around Jane Austen's time), when cannetille work was the vogue: very fine gold wires twisted into thin ropes and then formed into rosettes and other shapes. The amethyst has a lovely delicate shade of purple, and weighs approximately 2.5 carats – it’s very deep. (Amethysts are said to bring calm, and help banish headaches.) The whole lavalier, including the bale, measures 1-1/2 x 9/16”. Two of the seed pearls…

In excellent condition and circa 1900. Display your inner fantasy/mythology geek on your lapel - or simply your love of history and beauty.

Egyptian Revival Silver Plate Inkwell by WMF (item #1428147, detailed views)

The design of this piece is delightful and over the top! It is an Egyptian Revival piece, centering Hathor (goddess of dance, music, and fertility – we love her!). She is wearing big earrings, and her usual headdress. She seems to have a flower in her hair, and in front of her there is greenery tied by a ribbon with a bow (we can’t tell if it’s laurel or mistletoe). The ink pots (glass inserts are not present) have winged hearts on them, and are surmounted by crescent moons – symbols…

22kt Gold on Platinum Wedding Band - Fin de Siecle (item #1427586, detailed views)

Here is a very elegant band, with a continuous wheat sheaf pattern (wheat signifies love and charity). It was made at the turn of the last century, according to jewelry historian Christie Romero (RIP). She also told us it was probably made using a process called “die rolling.” It is marked “22ct”, “PLATINUM” (the platinum is under the gold, as you can see in the photos), and the maker’s mark is “B’s”. It is size 5-1/4 plus a little, and it cannot be sized. 5.6 grams. It…

Gold-in-Quartz Brooch in 14kt Gold (item #1428083, detailed views)

Here is a Victorian gold-in-quartz (also called “gold quartz” and “gold-bearing quartz”) brooch. Gold-in-quartz is rare and becoming more so. It’s our understanding that it is now found in very few places in the world – possibly only one mine in California. The 14kt yellow gold setting has twisted gold on top of a carved gold oval. It measures 1-3/8 x 1-1/8" and weighs 6.8g. The pin assembly has been replaced. In excellent condition. The photos are part of the description, so…

Engraved Silver Bell Pin - Russia (item #1427205, detailed views)

This heavily engraved silver pin is from the estate of Helen Aman, who escaped from the Bolshevik Revolution to (eventually) settle in California. It was one of the jewels from her childhood. It consists of a bell (with a clapper – but it doesn’t actually chime) dangling from an angled bar. Marked 84 for 875 silver, it also has a partial city mark, which we believe is for Moscow. It measures 1-3/8” x 7/8", and is in excellent antique condition, with a nice patina. (For more of…

1800s Silver Grooming Chatalaine with Chinese Motif (item #1427876, detailed views)

Here is a very Victorian grooming chatelaine from the 1800s. It has a Chinese fish motif at the top, and dangling from that are 3 implements: a tweezers, an ear-cleaning device, and a third implement for cleaning nails. (We saw a similar chatelaine on eBay that was advertised as a device for opium users, but we don’t think so! But as non-opium users, we could be wrong ….) It is unmarked but tests positive for silver, and with a patina consistent with age. It is lacking a belt hook, but…

Iolite & Diamond Ring – Victorian Revival (item #1427554, detailed views)

Here is a Victorian style ring with a beautiful Gothic design. The elaborate prongs set off the large iolite (approx. 2 ct.) very nicely, and there are 4 small single cut accent diamonds. The setting measures 7/8” north to south, and 3/4” east to west. Approximately size 8-1/2. It is marked 14k, the setting is rose gold and the shank is yellow gold. The stones are in excellent condition. The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully. Thanks! We do lay-away…

 Catherine of Alexandria Pin/Brooch Pearl Brooch, Silver Brooch, Brooch Pin, Victorian Jewelry, Vintage Jewelry, Antique Jewelry, Ancient Jewelry, Catherine Of Alexandria, Renaissance Era

St. Catherine Silver Pin or Brooch (item #1426852, detailed views)

Here is a pretty and nicely detailed pin, probably depicting St. Catherine, patroness of young maidens and female scholars. There is a “Catherine wheel” in the background (but it could also be a spinning wheel or a ship's wheel – so you can make up your own mind!), and a flower in the foreground. Her clothing looks very Renaissance era to us. Marked “SILVER” on the C-clasp, with an illegible maker’s mark, the metal tests as sterling, and she’s a dainty 7/8” in diameter. 2.5g…

Faith Hope & Charity - Rose Gold-Fronted Pin (item #1426824, detailed views)

Here is a Victorian brooch with cross, anchor, and heart, the symbols for faith, hope and charity, respectively. It has nice detail work in the metal. Unmarked, but it is made of a layer of gold on top of what looks like copper. The center of the heart is set with a seed pearl, possibly faux, and the cross is set with 11 tiny turquoise-colored cabs – they are too tiny for a definite ID. It measures 1-3/16 x 7/8". The gold shows wear here and there, and it has a nice patina. Overall it is…
