Thought I'd snag a moment in time while I can because I wanted to share my newest addition and a couple more I don't think I've shared.
All three pieces are 'Repoussé' pieces, Navajo. This ring is not signed and it's just super old, Victorian era maybe. I believe the 30's at the latest, and it's in great condition. I believe that's Kingman turquoise. Kingman mine has many varieties of turquoise I wasn't aware of till recently.
The earrings are from the same era, they had turquoise screw-back that I changed out to French hooks so I could wear them. These are not signed either but I don't mind. I believe still that when they aren't signed, they were made as a gift for someone and not mass produced.
And about that huge repoussé Naja, well, I don't know what I was thinking, but did not expect it to be so large and heavy! It weighs 88.9 grams and when I hold it in my hand you can not see my fingers! This is made and signed by Geraldine James. I haven't had time to do a lot of research so I am not sure when it was made.
Ok, times up for me... gotta run but I hope you enjoy these.
Thanks for looking and loving!
