  1. Hi Bonnie, I certainly have to agree with you on that, i also think that it is unique, I've never seen anything like it by him.
  2. They are lovely, I'm extremely pleased with them, it always nice to find something different. Thanks so much for your comment Bonnie. I just been in the U.K. and brought a few pieces back with me, so...
  3. Hi Bonnie, thanks for your comment. I've looked all over but no marks, there are a few scratch marks.
  4. Thank you Scott, it is really great that they are in their original case. I've been looking to see if I could find anymore cufflinks, but I've not been successful up to now.
  5. Thank you everybody for your lovely comments above. I have sent a email to the V&A and Westminster archives, hopefully they may have some records. Also I had a interesting email from the person who ga...
  6. Thank you kyra and valentino for above comments. I have now sent this bangle back and had a full refund. It's really great being on CW for this precise reason. Yet again thanks to everybody who contri...
  7. Hi kyra, I took this to my local Jeweller in the UK, he confirmed that you were absolutely correct on this bracelet beening glass. The bracelet is now going back to the seller, thanks so very much for...
  8. Thank you blunderbuss, Caperkid, NevadaBlades, Karen, Rick and Gillian, for your interesting comments.
  9. Pebble, I think the brooch is tarnished silver.
  10. I think peddle your brooch is also Bernard Instone. By the way I love that ring it's really lovely.
  11. Sorry my first links didn't work.
  13. Hi pebble, I think you have some Bernard Instone here.
  14. Hi kyra, I think it's a wonderful idea to recycle and help the local communities.
  15. I mean, most, oops.
  16. I have to say, I agree with brunwick, it would be more interesting to hear your stories.
  17. No I didn't either. I suppose that's what they mean when they say travel opens your horizons. Thanks Bonnie for popping by.
  18. Thanks for the interesting post, NevadaBlades. It must have been tough growing up knowing you were different, but it's made you the person you are today.
  19. Hi Karen, I think the blue stone is either Lapis, or blue agate. It's more than likely that Bernard Instone was the maker of this ring. He had such a individual character and didn't go with the norm,...
  20. Yes it does, great idea, I need a battery at the moment. Its one of those rectangular shape batteries which are difficult to get hold of in Spain. I'll take it back to the UK. Yet again thanks for you...
  21. Hi vintagelamp, thanks for the link above, yes I can see they are perfect together, lovely, lovely items. :-))
  22. Also to add, Bernard Instone retired in 1963, so I think he did do work for Shipton & Co, around that period. Th...
  23. Hi valentino, your trying to help, of course you don't come across as miss know it all, lol. We are all trying to learn here on CW and I really welcome your comment. As I said in my above comment to K...
  24. Yep, hi kyra, I do, do crazy things at times, lol. I do see the bubbles :-( which does lead me to believe it is probably glass, I will take it to a jeweller just out of curiosity. If it isn't Jade it...
  25. Hi Karen, this is a interesting ring, I have the same but with a moss stone. The reason I say it's interesting is that I and Jewels1900 believe that Bernard Instone did indeed make these types of ring...
  26. Wow, it's certainly been hand stitched. You can see the effort someone has gone to, from the back, to have make this wonderful piece. Whether the hair is real, I have no idea, but in my personal opin...
  27. Looking at the pillow again, I think it's not probably possible to see the work from the inside.
  28. Is it possible to have a look at the inside of the pillowcase, maybe we can finger out how the hair was sewn.
  29. I appreciate all the work that as gone into making this unique and wonderful pillowcase. :-)
  30. Hi Valentino, I've revised my first sentence in my write up as people thought this bracelet was from the Far East. I bought this online, in the write up the seller said it was a antique jade bangle, ...
  31. Ok, I've put part of the bangle under a LED light it does I think make a difference. I've redone all the tests, which it passed with flying colours, plus what fleafinder suggested which when done the...
  32. Hi kyra, I have used a heated needle and blunt needle, I would have thought it would have scratched glass. I must admit the colour is very unusual. I'll try and take another photo with light in front...
  33. Hi fleafinder, thanks for your help. I have done some test but will test again tonight, doing what you have said.

  42. This definitely as the wow factor, Paul.
  43. Very impressive pendant. I've been looking for some Hassler pieces myself, they are very difficult to come across at the right price. I bought a couple of silver enamel bracelets which I'll post wh...
