  2. Thank you Hatpinholly and kratango..I never thought about it being painted inside, but that is probably exactly what happened here. I love it too..so strange, but one of a kind for sure. A conversatio...
  3. Thank you Elisabethan & Amberrose: Its quite lovely, dainty. And I guess glass, but the metalwork is so intricate. Much loved at the original time it was purchased and still so..thanks again. Blingito...

  10. BellaEpoque: hope you like the Charles Horner Pennanular too?
  11. I have on similar but without the turquoise stones all silver. Very nice..They were originally designed to keep the Scottish wraps on. I had to look on utube to find out how to use it..Quite unique.....
  12. Hi lucky1: no markings? Great piece. Love the jadeite/pearl combination. Looks to be late 50's/60's styling. Coro? or Sarah Coventry?..very nice. blingiton1948
  13. Very Beautiful ring. Looks like copper, but a jeweller would be able to confirm. Truly a lovely ring. My passion, big rings..love it. blingiton1948
  14. Thank you antiquerose..these are beautiful too. I did find a few on ebay, not this blue though, but when you google what colour is alabaster its always white or creamy colour..Thanks so much again. bl...
  15. Hello pacmama08..thank you so much for this. It helps me alot. I love it. It is gold and quite fragile..very delicate. I can see a Bride wearing this yes..quite lovely. Thanks again. blingiton1948

  17. Love this how unique all so different. Thanks for sharing.
  18. Yes good thinking..maybe so Davhd286

  21. Wow..how sweet is this!!! Diamond & all..nice find..
  22. I really love this bottle. I do wonder though if it could be made by the Neiger brothers. The metalwork does resemble some of their signature work? Don't know if they made things like this or not? Any...
  23. This is amazing. So gorgeous..love it..Where is it from, how old. Gotta know more..blingiton1948
  24. Thank you all..
  25. Love this..wouldn't this have been at one time part of a Chatelaine?. Very sweet..
  26. Moonstonelover 21 are you out there? I need your expertise on how old this setting may be?..cosmicdeath commented today so I pulled it out again and had another look at it. Shines up like silver, but ...
  27. Hello Cosmicdeath..no I didn't have it appraised. It sits in a pile of junk jewellery. I think newtimes may be correct in that it is glass, however, its an old setting. I really like it too..blingiton...
  28. Wow..a beauty. Very different design than most Mexican Turquoise..Very lovely.
  29. I too am a jewellery NUT..love this. thanks for sharing. blingiton1948

  31. Thank you all for looking at my unique Egyptian Pin..I too love it. I wish I could remember where I got it? Probably one of my grandmothers, which neither of them travelled much? Hard to say. If ONLY ...
  32. thankyou
  33. Thank you Stillwater - no sarcasm..I am not an expert on this stuff. Some of you may be thats why we have this venue..thanks again blingiton1948
  34. Well Stillwater & valentino97..no need to get "graphic".Remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You must admit its "different"! I was hoping that some of you out there may have a suggestio...
  35. Thank you guys, It is a mystery. Both sides of the glass have the indentation so maybe for finger ease of pushing through hair/hat material. I just wish I could go back in time to see its original sta...
  36. I love it too. I have a few similar with baguette stones. I never thought of it being "soft" but understand how you can see that now, the curves are accurately done with metal..thanks for sharing.
  37. Would love to see that collection. How great is that?
  38. I was happy to see this. I too have one from my grandmother, but green. I wondered if it is bakelite? Didn't know it was called a jabot. Fun name. Thanks for sharing..blingiton1948
  39. Thank you amykathleen66..maybe I should have it appraised just to be sure..appreciate your comments..blingiton1948
  40. Thank you so much Stillwater. Yes I can this being a tedious and time-consuming job..thanks for the link. So my silver-plated brass bracelet is not really a prized item? I like the whole concept and ...
  41. Hi Stillwater: I see that filligree is really little beads webbed into a design. What would you call this and how would you describe it then? Do you have any idea of date or origin? Thank you. blingit...
  42. To everyone who commented on my brooch a HUGE THANKYOU..I learned so much..so excited to see one just like it on Ebay thank you Perfumer..but it is not for sale yet> Stillwater?? I just love it..will...
