    Newfld
    (410 items)

    This 2 1-2"W x 2"L garnet and white rhinestone brooch has a very stylish waterfall type design in a goldtone setting. The tiny mark reads 11 W 30 St, obviously a Manhattan designer I believe was associated with Dodds

      Pretty color and design! Love it my friend :-)

      So nice to hear Val, I love the deep red garnet color too, although under my bright fluorescent lighting it appears more ruby red - jewelry lighting is so tricky, if you use less light the camera flashes. Thanx for your kind compliment

      Many thanks for the luv Adele & Judy

      Gorgeous ! A brand, that I've not heard of. I remember Dodds Jewelry Stores. Are they the same company ?

      Mani thank you for the sweet comment & luv
    13. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Great & incisive comment as always Ken, thanx for getting me going on this, I breezed over it when I first found the brooch, now researched on the 'net & here's a direct quote
      "Some collectors are surprised to know that 11 W 30 ST INC and Dodds are one and the same manufacturer founded in 1952 by William Dodds & Co in Newark NJ" I just learned this myself so many thanx for asking!
    14. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Thank you so much aura

      Beautiful Jenni,
      The combo of garnet and ice is spectacular!
      How many designers put their address on their pieces?
      Not many I would think.
      Sign... I bet there's a treasure trove of vintage jewels in that city.
    18. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 2 years ago
      It is supposed to read "sigh", not "sign"
      I wish they would put an edit choice in the comment section!
    19. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Thank you so much for those nice words Eileen, yes on further reading this Dodds company used that NYC address in many forms on their pieces, with 11 left off, backwards etc., interesting. Oh no prob with wording, I have a droid that "chooses" wrong words from me, or else double posts my comments, & you're right an edit feature for the commenter would be nice
