Went to the swap yesterday and bought some silver bits from a dealer who always gives me great prices on really good stuff. Yesterday when he recognized me, everything I picked up off his table, he was quick to offer a figure so cheap I couldn't turn him down. He said he wanted to get rid of what he had because he had a new batch coming in two weeks. Brooch? 3 bucks. Necklace? 5 bucks. This ring? Take it for a dollar, and that other one too. The only thing with his stuff is it's always uncleaned and unpolished. I haven't cleaned the pieces yet, just took some quick photos to post here. The brooch is an antique, the two rings are vintage Mexican silver, and the necklace, well ... depends on if that's a glass marble or one of those elusive Pools of Light. Not bad for ten dollah. Thanks for looking.
EDIT TO ADD: Looking closely at the brooch, I found marks on the pin, a shooting star in a rectangle on one side, the number 27 stamped on the other side. Does anyone know what they mean? Thank you.
SOLVED: Hallmark is Spanish .750 silver. Thank you, Hel1, and Bonnie!
