  1. Their pieces are some of my favorites. I love all those little flowers too.
  2. Love it!
  3. Gorgeous ring. Thanks for sharing.
  4. Gorgeous ring. Love that.
  5. Thank you truthordare. All very interesting. Yes, the other belt was just something to behold. On that belt the person I ended up selling it to years ago said the lady was Athena. Me too. I lov...
  6. I added another one I found years ago with all kinds of butterflies and other things on it. It was silver plated.
  7. Thank you so much.for all that information. I checked again and there are no mark anywhere on the piece. I will read all the links you sent and see what I can find out.
  8. WOW, that is impressive. You need to go into repair business and get rich.
  9. I don't mind the crazing in opals. I know it is supposed to take away from the value, etc. but it always seems to me like crazed opals have been around for a long time and are still beautiful!! T...
  10. I tested it and it is not white gold. Wish it had some hallmarks.....
  11. That is what I am thinking. It is just different than the regular Hungarian jewelry, the silver work part.
  12. Love all of those. What great finds. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!
  13. Now that is some beautiful glass. I love this.
  14. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you vetraio50 and all our Collector's Weekly friends!!
  15. Thank you. The colors are even better in person.
  16. If you have been collecting these Hungarian opal pieces for a long time you can tell what is opal and what is not. Not only can you catch glimpses of opal fire in the opal pieces they have a diffe...
  17. Thank you. The stones are beautiful green and so translucent that they glow.
  18. Love these molas. They look like the real thing.
  19. Oh my gosh, what a classic cat pose in a pot. Love it!
  20. This is gorgeous. Great find congratulations!!!
  21. Thank you! I am having a flashback!!!
  22. You are welcome!
  23. Just added a photo of the back for you. :)
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
  26. I went through them and took out all the broken and discolored ones. :)
  27. I agree. Fluorite they are!! :)
  28. Thank you. I am a bead lover too. That is probably what started me on the road to vintage and antique jewelry.
  29. 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 ...
  30. Me too. I like that the citrines are longer and graduated. On the others I like the color.
  31. HEHE - I will let you know if it gets that bad and I have to ship it to you.......
  32. 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.
  33. Yes, the tiny touch of blue in the sapphires goes great with the moonstones and silver.
  34. 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.
  35. HA HA - Glad you enjoyed it. We are having a hurricane here so I thought I would do some photos for CW
  36. I agree. It does have that look to the design.
  37. Yes, that fabulous silver work.
  38. Yes, it is a classic Victorian piece.
  39. 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.
  40. It is a demure but unique design as well. That really attracted me to it.
  41. Especially in these cluster pieces. They are fascinating to me.
  42. It has always been a favorite of mine. Really nice stones and details.
  43. It was one of the first.
  44. I had not heard of them either but I love their work.
  45. Thank you! This was a little sleeper necklace - no bids on it.
  46. Moonstone Friday!
  47. Yes, has all the signs of being Hungarian.
  48. Added some new stuff for your Moonstone Friday entertainment!! :)
  49. Let me see what I can find to show you.
  50. This is my all time favorite piece of jewelry. You should see it in person. The stones are super.
