Butterfly pin is 2.25" marked G. Pollini Firenze. It has copper or brass camels. I thought it was Egyptian or Morrocan.

Pic 2& 3: 1" Italian poison ring. It's been resized so no marks. I'm sure it is silver - very similar to one listed right now on ebay.

Pic 4: 1.25" wide broken bracelet I thought was from Mexico. The .75" thin silver metal sheet shapes linking the heavier metal ones were missing or broken so I took them all off and replaced w/these round bronze links from another old item. A worn mark on clasp -Paba.

I always wear the pin and bracelet together but the ring keeps shining up brighter so it doesn't really go with them anymore.

Would love to hear any comments. Thanks CW friends!

    Thank you Nadia - poison rings are fun and actually I wear this one a lot because it is a nice dramatic 1" size. I've never put anything in it...maybe an altoid would fit!

    The butterfly is definitively not Moroccan but Egyptian I think, nice pieces !

    Thank you MJ - the pin is marked G. Pollini Firenze. Do you think it was a tourist piece made for Egypt?
