  1. Hi! These earrings are undeniably Dynamite! I am not fully certain, but they look like Miriam Haskell. The Bell-Shaped Beads are a Signature Haskell design element used in the early days in her woo...
  2. Such a fascinating piece of old costume jewelry! The labor that went into this is amazing. The flat rondelles with their super-fine saw-tooth settings and handset crystals are unlike I've ever seen!...
  3. Unique layered/applied design on this piece, the construction is beautiful! Egyptian motifs were popular during the Art Nouveau period, as well, just around the turn of the last century. The molded ...
  4. Hi, Vintage Damascene costume jewelry is collectible, and a showy bracelet is always a very desirable piece to add to a collection. Your bracelet looks older than other Damascene pieces I've seen, t...
  5. Hi, A great lot of vintage & antique jewelry! The fish earrings are very beautiful. I believe they are Chinese and they are certainly silver & enamel with real polished gemstone pendants, I can see...
  6. Hi Liz, The construction of the setting is very nice quality, and the curvaceous quality shows nicely from the back view. I love the thoughtfulness of the designer's placement of the pin clasp, so i...
  7. Hi Liz! Beautiful brooch, it has a "regal" Edwardian quality, and I love the tiered/3-D effect with the drippy center pendants - so glamorous! Seeing the back of the brooch would possibly lend clues...
  8. Amazing piece! This rose brooch has a mystical or surreal quality -- A *timeless* token of love... Totally gorgeous. Thanks for sharing! Anna
  9. Yet another stunning & iconic piece. Each of your jewels in this beautifully curated collection is a marvel. Thank you for sharing, you certainly have an eye for "the best of the best"!
  10. Hi, What a lucky find! PLAT is a mark for the precious white metal, Platinum. The 2 numbers very likely refer to the purity of Platinum (percentage of platinum) in your ring, for example 85, 90, 95...
  11. Hi, Your brooch was made by Goldette NY, a very collectible costume jewelry manufacturer. Many of their pieces are unsigned but often have distinctive characteristics like fob pendants with a signat...
  12. Hi, This is one cool dude, for sure! I was thinking sailor at first too...but then it occurred to me that Circus men often wore earrings. The dramatic mustachios might fit the bill as well. Thanks...
  13. Amazing post. Just a thought...The British Museum and/or Sotheby's or Christie's auction houses might be contacted by email. The auction houses have portrait painting and miniatures experts. The de...
  14. Hi, The black case looks nice and glossy - it could be Whitby jet, which is also very collectible in Victorian mourning jewelry. In the realm of Whitby mourning jewelry, Whitby jet lockets are more ...
  15. Hi, Neat ring! With the stamp signature, I'm thinking this is Asian-inspired. The shape of the rabbit looks a bit like traditional Netsuke designs. Or - perhaps for someone born in the year of the...
  16. Beautiful marquetry box! Looks like it's antique, perhaps made in Italy or France. I had a very small box in comparison inlaid with birds and also decorated with ink and scrolling motifs. Looks lik...
  17. Love it. The high relief carving is superb -- the Medusa's flowing hair looks "alive", as it should! The serpentine knot is also neat and different. Don't think I've never seen such a noble nose ca...
  18. Love your ring boxes, they are dynamite! The little lip of the shell on then front is also so cute, inviting - and functional. The salmon color and rich gilt detail is gorgeous, kind of over-the-top...
  19. How lucky to have a piece by De Patta. I'm sure there are mid-century experts out there in the forum, but why not try to contact the museum that is currently exhibiting her work? It's a great opport...
  20. Exquisite and extra-ordinary like the rest of your jewels! At a glance, I would never have thought your pendant's center design was done in hair, it's so very fine. The tiniest of pearls touches my ...
  21. Hi! Lovely ring. The stone looks more blue than green in the second & third pictures you posted, which, if so, would likelier be turquoise than jade. If it is indeed bright blue, than you might hav...
  22. Hi! Very nice find and interesting way of finding it! The NOV 4, 79 mark is likely the Patent Date for the brooch design or possibly, though more unlikely, for the pin clasp mechanism. It is possib...
