  1. The box used to hold cufflinks most likely.
  2. Glad you were able to re-unite the parts!
  3. They were made to be worn on shoes and add festive sparkle to your black pumps.
  4. It is made in the style of Little Nemo pieces from 1930s but I don't think it's their work. A couple of things on this pin seem odd enough even for a period copy, sorry I can't tell you more without ...
  5. Thank you, I assume it looks like the A in the shield on the catalogue cover. Lovely designs!
  6. Very cute!
  7. They are marked on the inside, I see the number 925 and possibly a maker's mark close to the clasp, see if you can take a better photo. They look European and of recent vintage, I'm reluctant to narr...
  8. Lovely!
  9. Lovely jewelry, thanks for sharing! How was their jewelry marked? Can we see a mark on your bracelet.
  10. Thank you for sharing!
  11. Your piece is in amazingly good condition, - those flowers flowers are fragile and can degrade from light, heat, dust etc.
  12. These are called fleur d'orange, made from wax. They used to be a staple of bridal attire around 1910-20, especially in Eastern Europe.
  13. Val is correct on the date. I'm curious how exactly the jeweler tested the stone?
  14. It was made in the 70s, Renaissance revival style.
  15. Your mother is right - late 60s or early 70s. There was a pair of the same style earrings posted here a couple of months ago.
  16. The beige beads are bone, and the necklace is from India. I like the handmade look of the glass beads.
  17. It's by Barry Kieselstein Cord - their jewelry was very pricey (nice look but nothing extraordinary - no idea what the hype was about) and they went out of business 10-15 years ago.
  18. This is not nephrite, more likely green marble; and look closer at that appraisal certificate in the link: it has several spelling mistakes.
  19. Gillian, probably mid-19th century and very likely based on an engraving by Bartolomeo Pinelli; he made many engravings depicting Italian folk costumes as well as folk dancing, his books came out in t...
  20. katherine, your instinct is right about folk art, I would call the necklace "bohemian"
  21. It could have been made in a number of countries: Egypt, Portugal, Malta, Austria, Italy, etc. Google "filigree butterfly brooch" and you'll probably find a match.
  22. Take them to your local bead store, they'll be able to tell you exactly what they are and probably show some matching ones.
  23. Rose quartz most likely, possibly tinted?
  24. I remember this one, it may be another one in the series of Italian Folk Costumes.
  25. These Zuni (or Zuni style) earrings were meant to have dangles. If you can't find the right stone beads, use several plain silver bugle or tube beads (the type called "liquid silver") for each dangle...
  26. Nice color combo!
  27. I don't think it's ivory but the quality is better than average. Look into "vegetable ivory", it's a nut that jewelers use in place of ivory, could yours be it, especially since Polynesia was mention...
  28. At first glance - 1930s style pin, European, can't see much more - the pics are too small.
  29. That's funny!
  30. I also see a W, maybe PIW? The other mark has numbers for the precious metal content but can't read them, maybe you'll manage to get a better photo later. I would date the pendant around 1900-1920. ...
  31. Beautiful!
  32. I've been reading up on gemstones, and it's amazing what they can do with synthetics and stone enhancement /treatments! I'm not buying any colored stones anymore unless they are an ultimate bargain as...
  33. Can you get a better photo of the mark? Or look at it through a magnifier? 800 would make more sense on a piece like that, and it doesn't not mean lower quality, it's just that it could not technical...
  34. The figure is looking left, so probably not St George but something else, like a winged gryphon?
  35. I think I see numbers 835 and a maybe an equestrian figure above them, looking like (possibly) Saint George and the dragon? That's if I look at it sideways.
  36. The inserts don't look like mop in the pics, more like frosted lucite.
  37. Too bad the photo of the back is blurry. The edges on the inside don't look very well finished, so either the back wasn't meant to be seen (as if they fasten to a bag or a piece of stationery or furn...
  38. I think your aunt did a great repurposing job. Those pieces likely started as a clasp or a buckle or perhaps, a bag fitting. They are of better quality because they are cast and not stamped. Is thei...
  39. The information you have on photo #4 is pretty exhaustive and correct, what else would you like to know? As for the country of origin - the cameo was probably carved in Italy and could have been set ...
  40. So have you ruled out glass, then? But what I'm really curious about is how on earth you got the thrift shop staff let you go through the jewelry before putting it out! Now that's a real mystery:)!
  41. The necklace itself is definitely ivory but there's no telling how old it is - it could be older or have been made recently (just before the import ban) and artificially aged. I think the heart penda...
  42. I'd say, 1930s. A good find, look forward to seeing more of your posts.
  43. In my opinion, those pretty charms are glass, and your bracelet was made some time after 2000.
  44. Your necklace was probably made in India any time between 1980s - now.
  45. My first thought was also Egyptian because of the clasp. Take a look at pebble's bracelet for location of the marks. If yours isn't marked , it could be nickel silver or silverplate.
  46. They were indeed, buttons, I've seen that style before.
  47. This set does not strike me as Juliana, but it's gorgeous!
  48. Elizabethan, S does not stand for abbreviated "silver" in this case, and there's plenty of room for the whole word, your link to Australian marks does not show anything looking like the one in OP's po...
  49. Val, I associate this particular style of jewelry with a chunk of Bakelite mounted on flat brass with France, and Jacob Bengel - style jewelry with Bakelite beads brings to mind Germany. Have not see...
  50. Yep, dyed quarz.
