    Hello fellow jewelry lovers! It is early saturday morning here and I can't sleep :). So I am looking through some photos from this summer and decided to let this photo be a mini quizz for my jewelry friends here. I love the blue in this necklace and earrings because it is so intence. Can you guess when these were made? No googleing, just tell me from the heart. It is not a test of your knowledge but just for fun.

    Love from Elisabeth

      Hi they are cool.. I would guess 1940s
      That period when cliché like gone with the wind was really in season.Very nice aND adorable.

      My guess is mid 1800's. Gorgeous blue!!
    6. valentino97 valentino97, 1 year ago
      I didn't look at anyone's comments because I was testing my "knowledge" LOL. But, now I think it's Georgian late 1700's to about 1837? Tell us more please.

      Thanks for guessing and writing your nice coments:) I saw this at the jewelry exibition at the nordic museum of Stockholm this summer. They show old and contemporary jewelry in an interesting mix. My first thought was that it was costume revival jewelry from about like 1930-1950 made to be worn as hig end pieces to fit a fantastic ballgown. The blue color is so vibrant.
      I was surpriced when I red the sign, see photo that I add. Thanks for stopping by :)
    8. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 1 year ago
      And I must say a few of you where spot on! I was surpriced that they used such bright colors like that blue. It looks more modern than other paste jewelry I have seen.
    9. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 1 year ago
      And sorry for saying that you all "guessed" some of you might have seen similar pieces before even if I have not :) :)

      Wow! I would have never known although the back of the necklace gives a good hint of age. It's just gorgeous!!!
    11. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 1 year ago
      Yes Shareurpassion I wondered why I didn't think of the back with the fabric but I guess I thought that if it had been that old the bands would look even more used, I mean that meny years of use, perfume etc?! :) But mostly the colors of the glass made me think they could not be really old :) But I was wrong. I love finding pieces like this, that is not what you would expect.

      Lots of love and happy collectors moments to you Vetraio, Newfld, Kyratango, Pglenn, Valentino and Shareurpassion for your answers.
    13. valentino97 valentino97, 1 year ago
      Is the answer Late 1700's? And that is Georgian which Kevin knew right away?
    14. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 1 year ago
      And ya know, there are many times we come across things, at least I know I do this more than I'd like to think but working on that, but we see a piece and miss the obvious thing. This choker is just so gorgeous!!!

      I love your beautiful pieces especially the color which I don't see everyday. This collection is difinataly vintage.
    16. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 1 year ago
      Thanks Gonavy, it is 18th century. So antique not vintage.
    17. Gonavy Gonavy, 1 year ago
      I stand corrected antique and still beautiful pieces.
    18. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 1 year ago
