  11. Thanks Carolize, Vetraio and Mikelv, your loves and comments are much appreciated!
  12. All that glows isn't gold... Could be gilded base metal, if gilded silver, it would have bee marked : silver, sterling, 800 or 935! For cleaning, don't soak it in water as it would ruin the rhineston...

  18. I love so much this portrait I'll love it each time I visit your post :-D

  20. At first glance I thought it was a "silhouette" portrait! http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silhouette So much unusual is your's!
  21. My Pleasure! At least you trust me ;-) @DrFluffy: I love jewellery mysteries, so I investigate, LOL
  22. Sorry southcop, but I would certainly love having the expert's explanation fot the tiny "pearls" in the motif. They are even more obvious on the link provided... If it were carved, why did the maker ...
  23. Nearly the same necklace! : http://www.ebay.fr/itm/141548511041?clk_rvr_id=770431574863&rmvSB=true
  24. Another one there: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/30117-given-to-me-by-my-mother-curious-as-to-w It is evident I don't stand behind turtlezman big$ value opinion! ;-)
  25. Hi southcop! Blunderbuss posted a similar one 2 years ago, my comment was: "Hi, have one, and under a magnifier could see very tiny "pearls" in the design (as in your's in the windows). I removed t...

  34. So special and, as Phil said, a wonderful keepsake!
  35. I would love attending those lectures and study day! Wish they could exist in France...
  36. Beautiful!!! The ornamented back makes me think perhaps Austro Hungarian. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/330170216405951267/
  37. I had one like your's, made of bovine horn with polished brass dots, it came from India in the 70'.
  38. Thank you so much peasejean for your kind comment, and many thanks too pops, katherine and freiheit!
  39. Nice find! For me it looks native american with a turquoise matrix!
  40. Excellent idea!
  41. Waaah...40 boxes!!! Must buy a trunk and play pirate's treasure! ;-) Or engage friends to sort all single earrings ! I would have been on that job with pleasure...
  42. You may try my technique! Material used for my restorations: = jewellers fiberglass pencil brush (brand LIBERTY scratch brush fiber glass) = nail polish pearly white = Pébéo painting on glass ...
  43. DrFluffy is right, identification may be helped by adding close up of the clasp! Perhaps Murrle Bennett... You may have a look to PeaseJean post: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/145962-murr...
  44. She's glorious! I noticed the wonderful jade necklace, butterfly brooch and earrings, assorted to the asian theme of wearing a kimono shaped dress!
