Aquamarine

Vintage 14K White Gold Filigree 1.5 carat Natural Aquamarine

 

We have many new items in our store this week to offer you, starting with a beautiful vintage 14K White Gold Filigree 1.5 carat Natural Aquamarine, one of our favorite gems. This ring is in excellent condition, having been worn very little (if at all). The stone has been verified by my jeweler and as always is guaranteed to be as stated. This is a size 6. PRICE: $365.00.

 

 

 

 

If you’re looking for something unusual and beautiful to make a statement, how about a vintage spinach bakelite necklace and bracelet set? The necklace is 14 ½” in length and was designed to be a  choker. Many of us may need an extender with this one. The bracelet is of ample size. Though the elastic is a bit stretched from age, it looks great when worn. The pieces are 1 5/16” in length and taper to 3/8” at the widest part. The pieces are slightly curved, thus fitting smoothly on the neck. PRICE: $300.00

Bakelite Necklace and Bracelet

Vintage Rose Gold Diamond ring.

This beautiful vintage Rose Gold Diamond ring with 1/3ct Mine Cut Center Diamond is also newly arrived. The ring is stamped 10K and the smaller diamonds are single cuts. The bow shape and size of the ring definitely make a statement. The ring is 7/8” x 5/8” on the plus side. Rose Gold vintage rings are highly sought after at this time, making the old ones very hard to find. This is a size 7. PRICE: $1295.00.

In furniture, we have an Antique Morris chair extraordinaire with carved lion heads and paw feet. The cushions are like new. The bottom cushion has the original horsehair that was cleaned and restored. The chair adjusts into three positions. Similar chairs are selling at $795 & up. PRICE: $595.00

Etruscan Pendant

14K Etruscan, Cannetille, Filigree pendant, charm, necklace, fob.

This won’t last long. It’s a 14K Etruscan, Cannetille, Filigree pendant, charm, necklace, fob. This pendant is very well  done and the detail is exquisite. The first synthetic Alexandrite was introduced in 1909. Synthetic color-change corundum was grown and used as an Alexandrite imitation. The color change in Alexandrite-like synthetic sapphire is bluish-purple changing to reddish-purple. In 1912, Alexandrite was included as a birthstone on the American National Association of Jewelers list.

The pendant is not marked with a karat gold mark, but was tested and it is 14K. We believe the four small stones at the top to be rubies, though they were not tested.

The pendant measures 1 ¼” in length on the plus side. It is 1 1’16” in diameter. The Alexandrite stones are approximately 9mm x 7mm with a very lively color change. PRICE: $795.00.

Native American Sterling & Turquoise

We are often asked if we have Native American jewelry. Yes! We have a large selection of signed and unsigned pieces. Bracelets, belt buckles, rings, necklaces, pins and more. Jewelry-making has been part of the artistic tradition of many Pueblos and Nations for over a century. The Spanish first introduced silversmithing to Navajo and other Native American Indian people in the Southwest. Since then, the Pueblos and Tribes have developed their own unique styles and perfected techniques that they pass down from generation to generation. A small corner of our available Native American jewelry is shown above with a few featured pieces shown below.

Navajo sterling belt buckle. 3 1/4″ x 2″. Vintage. Signed J.J. 15 stones.

Peyote Bird necklace. Turquoise chip inlay. Squash blossom Sterling, double-beaded. w/3″ Napa
Vintage, Native American. Each Peyote bird is 2 1/4″. There are 12.
