Mom passed in March of this year so as the only daughter I inherited all of hers and her Mother's jewelry. There is a bit of fine jewelry, albeit, inexpensive fine jewelry but more fascinating is the large amount of costume jewelry. 90% of the costume jewelry belonged to my Grandmother.
She was born in the early 1900's, so any amount of jewelry that would have been accumulated to my way of thinking/guessing from 1930's to 1970's (late). She died in the early 80's. She seemed to LOVE brooches, Canadian Maple leaves, etc. She also either was a fan of jewelry that looked like grapes or it was a fad at some point.
This is one of two Owl necklaces that we know came from my Grandmother. As you can see, it's tarnished/part of the 'gold color' appears rubbed off in places. I do know Owl jewelry made a resurgence of interest in the past decade, however the ones I have are definitely 'vintage'....any idea of time period?
