    I'm hoping someone can tell me approximately the year of these pieces? I have found several others but none with the single white daisy like these. The earrings are clip on, and the brooch has "Italy" stamped on the back. The settings appear gold, but I believe they are either brass or perhaps even gold plated brass... Any information would be greatly appreciated.

      This nice set is made in Italy around the 30s.

      Thank you so much for the quick reply. Is there a certain designer/maker I should be looking up? I'd like to put a name with this piece, and perhaps the name of the design itself?

      I'm not sure what you mean by "but none with a daisy like these." There were millions of these made in Italy and they used millions of different floral motifs, yours just happens to be a daisy.

      I'm picking up that you're intention is to list them on eBay? It wouldn't do you much good to find out who made them in that case, if that were even possible. It wouldn't increase their value. Also you're correct, they are gold-plated.

      And the design is called a daisy, I think you figured that one out already, lol

      Yes, I realized it was a daisy LoL :)
      What I meant was, I have found several of the other floral motifs, but I the hundreds of pages I looked through, I haven't seen any that are a single daisy like what I have. And yes, I would like to list them, but I like to know what I have so I'm not under or over pricing them. Thanks for the comments though!! :)

      But what does the fact that its a daisy mean? They used lots of flowers for motifs, a single daisy is just another one

      In a strictly business sense, these are at the bottom of the totem-pole, they were mass-produced for export and there is very little craftsmanship in them. Not trying to be mean, I'm a dealer and my natural inclination is to evaluate jewelry in a marketing sense.

      I guess I just thought it was unique...

      Awww, well, do you have anything else to show? And you can find out the value for something by looking up eBay's sold listings, it has to be the ones that sold though, not what people are asking.

      No.. I don't.
