  1. I love it!!!
  2. I agree that it could do with a restringing. I know you'll brighten it up! :-))))
  3. Just wait until Ken sees that....

  6. Ms.CrystalShip - Thanks! I run into that problem here, too. I just keep walking. I really have to look carefully but quickly when I am examining jewelry so the seller doesn't get suspicious. I figure ...
  7. This is more in the style of what is called a Princess ring.
  8. That's lovely, Judy! No help with the maker, though.... :-((((
  9. It would help knowing when your great-grandmother was alive. Styles aren't always an indication of age.
  10. Pascale, I even asked on an antiques and collector's page where there are tons of knowledgeable jewelry folks and NOBODY there could tell me anything other than that the mark has been seen/researched ...
  11. "Bangs head against wall in frustration".
  12. How on Earth can there be SOOOOOO many beautiful pieces with that "Blankety-blank-blank" mark and NOTHING to find on the web????
  13. Pascale, I looked at that brooch > PERFECT!! I love it.
  14. I'm baaaaaaaaack......had to look some more!
  15. They're adorable! Perhaps silver gilt? I think the fish is supposed to represent their "dinner".
  16. CME is an unknown maker's mark.
  17. Best thing to do is take them to a reputable jeweler or goldsmith and have the metal tested. There is no acid test for 9KT, only 10KT. https://www.durangosilver.com/persianturquoisemines.htm
  18. LOL Pascale, the object was terminated!!
  19. Looks very Austrian to me. :-))))
  20. Yes, it was made in 1966. The letter in front of the number - in this case a "C" - refers to the workman's mark.
  21. Dates to between 1908-1969. Would have to see the hallmarks to know exactly when made. http://www.braceletstobucklesjewellery.co.uk/index.php?route=information/information&information_id=39
  22. Pascale - what fun we would all have together! Val's coming, too..... :-))))))
  23. Oh val, we would have a grand ole' time!!
  24. Hi val - I remember that beautiful bracelet. Mine is definitely silver - passed the acid test with flying colors.
  25. Oh my, I will be still seeing that after I close my eyes tonight!
  26. Troll, troll, troll your boat!!
  27. Here comes the Gruesome Threesome! :-)))))
  28. LMAO shall I pick you up in London?
  29. Have never seen one like that - it's great!
  30. Thanks you, Rose!!
  31. The darker areas say "Bone" to me, but.....!!
  32. This is great. I would love to find something like that around here. The thrift shops in Sittard which used to carry nice things now have only ROTZOOI.....!!!!
  33. Oh boy!! It's beautiful.
  34. That set is gorgeous! I would just live with the sticky-out part, LOL!! :-))))
  35. Beeeeee-U-tee-ful!! I'd also have bought it. Still with the original cloth wiring, too. :-))))
  36. I'm with Ken - the Malachite! What sort of marks to these rings have on the inside?
  37. THANKS JUDY!!
  38. Hi and glad you're back! Need to see more photos, taken in natural light without a flash. Important to see what the etching looks like. Thanks.
  39. You're welcome!
  40. Gorgeous....the one marked "Germany" is pre-WWII.
  41. A beautiful inlay cuff bracelet! The mark is a pictograph. There are quite a few listed here. but no idea if yours is one of them. The design looks to be Zuni, but I didn't find that particular mark u...
  42. What a neat item! Looks like a one-of-a-kind item, specially made.
  43. You did well! I especially like the two on the left.
  44. Gorgeous, Dahling!! You're right to leave some patina, especially on the shadowbox earrings.
  45. Perhaps something made by a pottery student. It's adorable!
  46. Perhaps a shoe button hook or a glove hook. What other goodies did you all find in that bag??
  47. Yeee Haaaa!!! They're beautiful. I come across gold the same way. :-)))))
  48. A rickshaw brooch. Probably dates to the mid-century. There are quite a few varied designs of this brooch on the internet.
  49. Made In Hecho en Mexico brooch: not gold, not even silver. Made of a white metal called Alpaca. The decoration is Abalone shell. Coro heraldic brooch - the other mark is a Pegasus symbol, which mea...
  50. Gorgeous! These pieces are just waiting for you to come along.
