I need help identifying these costume jewelry pieces. My mother had tons of this stuff. Funny thing is... she almost never wore any of them.
I love them but they don't love me. They really irritate my skin.

Unsolved Mystery

Help us close this case. Add your knowledge below.


  1. valentino97 valentino97, 4 years ago's my take on costume jewelry like you - LOVE it and don't - ouch - the metals don't love me? Yes some of the base metals are very irritating - nickel or copper and whatever "base metal" is? I'm not sure what you have in your pictures above. The 2 on right look 1960's. Those on the left look newer - 80's? They are sellable so don't give them away (unless you're giving them to nieces). Post some more for us....

    I would definitely hang on them. They don't take a whole lot of space and someday you will be happy you have them :)
    Would love to see more.

    Val and Doc, thank you both very much. I really only have a handful of pieces. Another family member pretty much has my mother's entire collection. I'm one of the reserved children. So are they going to be worth anything later? After my basement flooded, I'm ready to get rid of everything now. But if I have items that will be of value for my son later on in life, than I will hold onto them for him.

    What is a reserved child?

    I don't swoop in asking for anything

    Aims, as far as value, it's hard to tell. I collect either designer, or if they are sterling, bakelite, period piece or interesting stone. It took me a while to figure out what I like and now I focus on those... Am I bummed out that I let go of some interesting pieces a couple of years ago... YES.... So, if you can try to keep em... Your son can later decide what to do with them.

    Don't worry about having to save these. They won't pay for college, maybe a dinner. Pretty pieces but mass-produced and common, nothing special. If you need space and don't have a sentimental attachment to them let them go before corrosion gets them.

    Thanks davyd. That's what I was thinking. I would rather someone get use out of them, as I cannot wear them.
