  1. I love both.
  2. I have not seen any markings on it. It is even more beautiful in person. Thanks.
  3. Yes, definitely a possibility.
  4. Watch out. You might get hooked on opals.
  5. I found another one that has circles of amethysts and pearls that need some restoration. It has opals for the centers. I will put a photo of that one on too. It turned out nice.
  6. I hope so!!! I am trying!!
  7. Mexican opals. I used to have a sister in law that collected those. She would buy them in Mexico. They were stunning. Got me hooked.
  8. It has a unique look. The little accents on the sides are pieces of cut steel. No garnets...
  9. Fabulous!!!! A real stunner!
  10. I love these. I love the sapphires with the moonstones. Gorgeous!!!! Show me more!!!! I will put up more too.
  11. Thanks moonstonelover. You need to post more of your gorgeous moonstones for me to see!!!
  12. Thank you for your comments. I love all those types of stones too. They are so interesting. Like all types of opals. All the hinged sections make the bracelet move with my wrist when I wear it. ...
  13. Thanks! I love this too. It is really net looking when worn.
  14. I have looked and looked for these for years. It is very hard to find intact ones. I would love to have seen these being worn back in the day.
  15. Me too, I love them both! Thanks for sharing those. :)
  16. Thank you. I love antique jewelry and enjoy finding these little treasures.
  17. I has a dreamy quality about it. It is neat looking.
  18. PS All of ones I have had the privilege to re-string have also been very dirty. I put all the little beads into that diamonds and pearl blue cleaning liquid that comes with the Radiance 2000 tarnis...
  19. I do have a tip. I have actually re-strung some of these. The orange one in the photos I re-strung with Griffin Size 0 or 1. I do them in sections according to the length of the thread and knot at ...
  20. I think the longer ones must have been looped around the neck twice and the 48 inch ones once and knotted. Like how we wear scarfs now.
  21. It is beautiful. Looks like it has the satin look quality of mother of pearl.
  22. Thank you for the tip. I will read this.
  23. Thanks for loving it. Yes, the purple is super deep in color. Even better in person.
  24. I love the necklace with the little pearls. You have a beautiful collection.
  25. You should take it to a jeweler and get the stone and metal tested. It is a beauty.
  26. Thank you moonstonelover21........... It is so nice to hear from you. I LOVE all your items. They are gorgeous.
  27. So true, so true, unfortunately we have more "pre-cleaned" sunsets now than we used to have. That "post-cleaned" was 1945, probably after a cold front came through.......................
  28. As I was cleaning this I saw that each bird was perfectly shaped, each had its wings at a different angle and that only one bird had its mouth open ( guess he was the leader). Then the colors started...
  29. I started years ago by cleaning lithographs and just recently got brave enough to try oil paintings. It's fun to rescue old stuff.
  30. I have done this to several other hopelessly dirty paintings and they all come through it fine.
  31. Dawn diluted 1 part to three parts water
  32. I usually use Windsor and Newton cleaner but this painting smelled so foul and was really making me sick and then the cleaner made it worse. The weather was very cold and I could not get any fresh ...
  33. Yes, they are Austro Hungarian. I agree, probably turquoise and amethysts. Beautiful.
  34. Aren't they, and the water is blue not brown!
  35. Thanks my friend!!! Same goes for you, same goes for you! Love all your posts!!
