    It's been a long time since I've been able to post any jewelry from Salvation. My cashier friend has been exiled to production since they're short handed so her jewelry cases are suffering and almost bare. Clothes are more important to get out on the floor for some stupid reason. But, for half price day she was finally able to do a few pieces and here's two that caught my eye. The tiny 3/4" Victorian pin is marked 14K and a quick trip to the jewelers ID'd the stone as a garnet. Total weight 2.9 grams. The clasp is really interesting. An old "C"shape with a tiny lever on the back side that locks the pin in place from underneath. Sadly the garnet cabachon has been shattered at one end. Not really visible to the naked eye because it's so petite, but catastrophic when viewed through a loupe. Like a small rock hitting your windshield. Bulls eye !! It could be reshaped but you'd lose a lot. The cost would be the same to replace it entirely so it's best to be left as is. The circular scarab pin is a beauty, but unmarked. So it's nothing more than costume with faux stones and a gold tone mount. Still pretty cool and only a few dollars for both. -Mike-

      Thanks Bonnie.....I didn't even see the 14K mark till I got out to the car and neither did Salvation. Although I was informed about the damaged stone. I still wanted it anyway.

      I try to look nonchalant when examining jewelry so the person at the counter doesn't get suspicious. :-)

      When I could help my friend sort though things I'd tell her if it was or wasn't real. She'd always say "Do you want it" ? I'd say yes and get it for a song. With the new management it's going to be much harder now. She actually pulled these pieces before I even asked to see them. She knows me too well ...lol :)

      Oooh, you are one lucky guy. I have to depend on the lack of knowledge of the personnel in the thrift shops....

      Those are beautiful. I remember my mother had a scarab pin. You are making me want to start looking for jewelry, well, at least it is small.
