Agram.m
(498 items)

The people who follow me for a long time here at know that I am seeking to collect sets. Regarding the style this jewelry is not of the same style they still form a beautiful set. To day I show you my last treasure.
As already showed in the past the Silver pendant with coral on belcher chain and the same type of brooch which I now can combine with a beautiful (in my opinion) filigree silver coral ring marked: NU-NU 900.
Do any of you have an idea what the letters NU-NU mean? 900 is a silver mark just below Sterling Silver?
Like your vision please !

    The brooch in your second picture was recently on ebay - exactly the same except the stones were turquoise. "Possible Persian origin" is what the seller advised - had the same exact NU-NU 900 mark.
    Nu nu means "beautiful girl" in Mandarin Chinese language.

    aghcollect what an interesting comment thank you very much for that. Could the ring not be of Chinese origin??

    Agram.m - currently the "nunu" trademark for jewelry is held by an Asian designer but her mark uses small letters with no dash between - her designs are currently sold in stores here like Nordstroms & Lord & Taylor among others. It is possible these are some of her earlier works. Here is some information on her;
    (I hope it translates easily) -- any woman is sure to look even more attractive in Nunu Designs, created by Natalie Lu. The Addison, Texas-based designer is best known for her simple, delicate creations in gold vermeil and silver, each bedecked with an array of vibrant semiprecious gemstones. Consisting of rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets, the entire collection is finished in the United States. Although Nunu Designs officially launched in 2002, jewelry design and production is nothing new to Lu. Her family has long been involved in the industry. Nunu Designs collection is seasonally inspired, often incorporating elements from current fashion trends and nature, as well as Lu's extensive travels. She describes her aesthetic as "simple, elegant and timeless" - adjectives that resonate particularly in this economy, as clients prefer to purchase jewelry that they can wear year after year. Always well-made and well-priced, NuNu Designs jewelry is a must for transforming casual ensembles into elegant works of art. Each piece is as spectacular as it is versatile.

    Natalie Li's designs are very different from Agram's ring. I am pretty certain that it is vintage Middle Eastern, very likely from Egypt or maybe Israel.

    Re- Natalie Li - I only put that to show who currently owned the "nunu" mark. Natalie's pieces are much more current (2002) - I believe Agram.m's pieces are much older and agree they are of mid-east origin, maybe even Persia.

    aghcollect thanks a lot for your interest and explanation I think you could be right. And another question, please help me to translate the comment under my thimble see link: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/102455-antique-silver-marked-decorated-fleur-de
    I don't know what it meant by the last comment from Colombe??
