    Today's Salvation jewelry sorting was short but sweet. One of my friends co-workers aunt had passed and left her some jewelry. She donated about 12 pieces of costume that she thought were ugly and worthless. Now these may be worth less than the real pieces she kept but they are worth a fortune in eye appeal. They seem to cover a few decades of styles from Victorian to Deco. I had to choose carefully because of budget constraints. I passed on pieces missing stones and the shoe clips which were beautiful but there was only one of each. Hopefully the others will stick around and I can pick them up later. None of these have any makers marks. The two larger brooches are 2 1/2 " across. I love the middle one for it's design and purple baguette stones. The big clear rhinestone one is a statement piece. Just imagine if it were real !! The small 1 1/2 " brass one I believe is the oldest. The clasp is a simple "c" catch while the others use the rotating lock type. It's pieced background and little amber corners frame a tiny enamel flower. It looks like a"Trillium" to me. Very Victorian ! -Mike-

      They are all wonderful, well done Mike!.
      I agree with all of your ratings: Great design for the middle one, lots of sparkle for the big girl, but the amber one is my favorite!

      Thanks Katherine :).... It's hard to choose sometimes but the big clusters always catch my eye as well. I always imagine them being real
