In order to watch but also to collect them especially antique jewelry from the 18th and 19th centuries. This out of hand hobby which has grown into a passion. When I was fourteen years old I got a silver watch chain birthday present from an aunt to wear as bracelet. That was my first introduction to antique jewelry. I posted it already on CW. I enjoy wherever possible to find affordable antique jewelry and could build in this way a decent collection. Since I am retired for several years I'm able to spend time in searching, viewing and publishing and like to share and show my collection to fellow collectors. Furthermore I like to share my knowledge of antique jewelry with others and also learn from the knowledge and experience collectors. (Read more)

  15. I advise to look on the important country and homeland of all about Dickens the UK
  16. The c-clasp is the earliest type of catch but it can sometimes be found on "newer" jewelry. De design of the brooch let me think of Art Deco so after all I must conclude that dating is very difficult.
  17. Indeed there are similarities. Unfortunately I cannot date but I think indeed Georgian or early Victorian. And I suppose not Scotland but France as mine. Very Beautiful indeed!
  18. Beautiful and intriguing !
  19. Very elegant
