  15. Thanks @AmberRose!
  16. @nutsabotas6 Thank you! @valentino97 Glad to be able to share them here :) Thank you for looking!

  24. thank you @vintage1507!
  25. Hi @valentino97, thank you for the suggestion! That's brilliant!
  26. I thought so too @davyd286 because the tassels made it look like it has a mane, but the face has stripes! Perhaps it is a hybrid hehehe
  27. Thanks @valentino97!
  28. Thank you very much, @DrFluffy!
  29. Thank you @Zowie! I make goldfishes look good!
  30. Thank you @inky! :)
  31. Thank you @faldi!
  32. No problem davyd286! Yeah, I need some work in that department too since I don't deal with Florenza too often. When in doubt, you can post photos at this website (https://www.facebook.com/florenzajewe...
  33. @davyd286 yes, I'm aware that there are unsigned Florenza pieces :) but this one has true unsigned copies; the quality and details are nowhere near Florenza's.
  34. thank you very much, @valentino97 and @BELLIN68!
  35. hi @Militarist! so sorry, i am not well-versed with Sassanian culture. i just know how to appreciate this necklace for its beauty :)
  36. You're absolutely right, @nldionne! Thank you, @davyd286!
  37. Thanks, @Moonstonelover21! His jewelry designs are very cool :)
  38. haha, yes @davyd286! but in terms of shine, the Alice Caviness one wins!
  39. Thank you, davyd286!
  40. Thank you, BELLIN68 :)
  41. Hi @Manikin! Thank you, it's adorable!
  42. I think I've seen a similar bracelet signed Hobe :) Very beautiful; you're so lucky!
  43. I have the same pin, but mine is in bright gold-tone and has a turquoise cabochon in each wing. Very beautiful and well-made, but no signature too.
  44. Oooh, this is a tough one! I have never seen these pieces up-close, but I'd rule #1 out. From what I have seen so far, the Hattie Carnegie mermaid brooch does not have a well-defined facial features,...
  45. Hi Pattywhacks! Thank you, I'm glad you love it! :)
  46. Hello vintagejewel! It certainly attracted a lot of attention, haha. Will definitely search for more Panetta rings!
  47. Hi Hunter. I currently do not have a clear photo of the back, but the symbols are at the back of all Goldette fobs like this one. I'm not sure if it means anything, though. Thank you for commenting!
  48. the coral color is actually much softer than in photos, vintagejewel :)
  49. No problem vetraio50, it has been such fun!
  50. Hi vetraio50. Very cute, a hit with children for sure, LOL!
