VINTAGE COSTUME JEWELERY BROOCH

An interesting Celtic styled vintage jewellery costume brooch I would guess from the late 1950’s early 1960’s. Probably in a base metal the design is elevated with patterns and set in the centre on a raised plinth is a clear / white multi facet stone. There are no markings on the reverse of the brooch, but there is age staining which could be cleaned off. (I will leave as is). There is a Safety pin style clasp for securing to clothes.

If you are a lover of interesting and unusual vintage and antique jewelry, you’ve come to the right place. I try to keep a nice mix of fine and costume pieces that range in age from 19th century Victorian to late 20th century vintage designer couture. I have a wonderful group of auctions up this week to round out the month of October. Please be sure to browse through all the 50+ listings. I’m quite certain something will catch your eye. Up for auction is a wonderful looking vintage gold washed sterling silver, faux emerald, faux ruby, faux sapphire, and crystal rhinestone crown brooch designed by Alfred Philippe for Trifari circa 1944.(I have included an example of the original patent drawing in the auction for reference). Philippe had worked for Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels before coming to Trifari and his ability to create costume jewelry that mimicked fine jewelry is unmatched. The brooch measures approx 1 7/8 long x 1 3/4 wide and is signed STERLING TRIFARI DES. PAT. 137542 on the underside. The condition is excellent with no damage and only light signs of wear.

These are great rocks, even if they aren’t the real bling thing.  Liz Taylor would have been jealous!!   Lovely center stones at least ten karats surrounding by 12 small diamond florets.  Screw-clip fasteners.  Approx.  5/8 in diameter.  In overall good shape, but one of the small stones is missing.  Might not fool Alexander Mundy or the Pink Panther, but then, no need to keep these earrings in the safe, either.  Who’s a girl’s best friend, then?!!

Flower necklace

Beautiful Art Deco brass and purple glass necklace. There are 4 brass flowers on this necklace. One is for the clasp and the other 3 are on the necklace. The 3 that are on the necklace have glass prong set stones and 3D filigree backs. This necklace is stunning. It could use a cleaning but I will leave that up to the new owner. Its not real bad just has a little bit of green from the brass. The flower clasp is in good working condition. Each of the 3 flowers measures a little over 1 inche. The necklace length is about 18 3/4 inches. It is not marked but because of the brass and the beauty of this necklace I believe it to be a Cezck necklace. Necklace is in good Art Deco condition. Please look at all pictures and ask questions if in doubt.

A wonderful one of a kind look!

Silver ring

This is a lovely Art Deco era ring made of solid sterling silver. It is set with a large cut crystal surrounded by smaller prong set crystals and the band is embossed with tiny flowers. The back of the stone is windowed.

It is a tiny size-it barely fits my pinkie. It is a size 4 1/2 and marked “Sterling” on the inside of the band. It also has a hallmark of a W or a M with two arrows and initials or a patent date on the backside of the setting. I have been unable to identify the maker- Whiting? Wallace?

The condition is excellent.

Super vibrant color on a leafy, wreath style floral brooch to wear any time; and can you imagine how awesome this will be at Christmas time? The details are gorgeous! You don’t even have to be a big fan of the color red to appreciate the styling of this piece.

Engagement ring

Breathtaking antique art deco era engagement ring featuring a luscious old sparkling transitional round cut genuine diamond from the 1930s. The diamond is set in an illusion setting in a trefoil style prong cathedral setting. This looks nice and large on the finger with it’s elegant traditional deco lines! Made from solid 14K white gold. I would estimate the diamond is VSI2 (slight crystal visible under magnification) and in the colorless/early colorless range (G/H) and has a pretty little open cutlet. The setting is raised 6 mm from the finger when worn and so could easily be worn next to the wedding band of your choosing. The setting head (top) measures 6 mm by 6 mm. The diamond measures 4.5 mm across which equates to approximately .35 carat and is in excellent condition with no chips or flaws, full of flashing fire! Inside of band is hallmarked for 14K solid gold and the well respected maker ArtCarved. Total ring weight is 2.4 grams. Currently the band is a size 5 but could be sized up or down by my jeweler for a minimal fee if desired.
