  1. This is gorgeous. Great find congratulations!!!
  2. Thank you! I am having a flashback!!!
  3. You are welcome!
  4. Just added a photo of the back for you. :)
  5. It has that look of pools of light. I saw one other like this for sale from an Australian dealer that was moonstone and there are some cluster moonstone hat pins too but not many like these.
  6. Hi, No, it is not marked. Has the remains from a brooch pin and the pendant loop but no marking. Maybe the pin portion had a mark.
  7. I went through them and took out all the broken and discolored ones. :)
  8. I agree. Fluorite they are!! :)
  9. Thank you. I am a bead lover too. That is probably what started me on the road to vintage and antique jewelry.
  10. Bead poetry, I like that. The other night on that TV show Strange Inheritance a lady inherited a huge collection of rare beads. At the first round of auctions she made $300,000. ONE rare African ...
  11. Me too. I like that the citrines are longer and graduated. On the others I like the color.
  12. HEHE - I will let you know if it gets that bad and I have to ship it to you.......
  13. Where I am is ok so far. The winds have picked up about 30 mph and we have rain but no destruction here. They are saying 8 inches of rain tomorrow. We have about 4 so far.
  14. Yes, the tiny touch of blue in the sapphires goes great with the moonstones and silver.
  15. I am thinking one does not have to worry about that - The necklace can be majestic. I was shocked when I saw it on Ebay. I know that heart attack feeling for sure.
  16. HA HA - Glad you enjoyed it. We are having a hurricane here so I thought I would do some photos for CW
  17. I agree. It does have that look to the design.
  18. Yes, that fabulous silver work.
  19. Yes, it is a classic Victorian piece.
  20. Maybe the clasp is a clue to its origins. It is a pull up bar that slides into a cylinder? Is that Italian? I am not sure on that.
  21. It is a demure but unique design as well. That really attracted me to it.
  22. Especially in these cluster pieces. They are fascinating to me.
  23. It has always been a favorite of mine. Really nice stones and details.
  24. It was one of the first.
  25. I had not heard of them either but I love their work.
  26. Thank you! This was a little sleeper necklace - no bids on it.
  27. Moonstone Friday!
  28. Yes, has all the signs of being Hungarian.
  29. Added some new stuff for your Moonstone Friday entertainment!! :)
  30. Let me see what I can find to show you.
  31. This is my all time favorite piece of jewelry. You should see it in person. The stones are super.
  32. I know what you mean. It is one stunning piece. Heavy too.
  33. Thank you!
  34. Thank you.
  35. They all have really good color. I wear the carnelian and turquoise sometimes and love to look at them.
  36. Thanks! It has been a long time. I will have to add some others. Thanks for commenting.
  37. Yes, they really are. The silver is all intact.
  38. Thanks. I loved the detailed silver work.
  39. Me too!
  40. Wow, that is interesting. I love the carved pieces.
  41. It's funny now because when I bought them I was usually the only one bidding or even if others did bid, I still purchased them for very little.
  42. It is harder and harder to find the nice old pieces.
  43. I have had this for a very long time. From my early days of finding old jewelry. Not for sale. Thanks for your comment though.
  44. Thank you. I love vintage jewelry too. Fun to look at the pieces on Collector's Weekly.
  45. Yes, they are lovely pieces. I have found a couple of these this year. The other has moonstones and chalcedony and is very similar to this. They make great pendants when converted.
  46. I know what you mean. I was just gasping when I saw it in person. It is big too - about 2 inches across.
  47. Excellence
  48. Love those rich colors and the shape.
  49. Yes, I am sure it would ( hehe)!
  50. Thanks for your comment!
