Description: Airflex Sapphire Blue and Clear Rhinestone Expansion Bracelet - While there are thousands of expansion bracelets to be had, Airflex is the Cadillac of expansion bracelets, and this one is extremely nice. A center row of prong set dark blue marquises is flanked by rows of clear prong set rounds. Silvertone setting, excellent if not pristine condition. 5/8" wide, this should fit all but an extremely large wrist/hand.

Item: SB14-1308

Price: $49.50 US

•••

Description: Castlecliff Arum Bead and Rhinestone Earrings - Clip, set in goldtone, each earring uses 4 large arum (metallic gold over Colorado topaz?) beads that alternate with 5 arum rhinestones. Clip finding is marked Castlecliff. One earring has a small, well-done solder repair at the base of the clip, otherwise excellent original condition. 1" in diameter. It would be fun to see the matching pieces.

Item: SE14-1306

Price: $18.50 US

•••

Description: Dauplaise Black Cabochon and Glass Pearl Chain Necklace - Goldtone chain alternates with pearl stations and a large finding centered with a double sided black glass cabochon and a fleur de lis on each end. About 36" long, this uses the trademark clasp used by Dauplaise (and also used on later Haskell pieces). Marked Dauplaise on the sliding clasp, with the finding patent number on the reverse side. Nice weighty piece, quality components, excellent condition. Wear this by itself or with other coordinating necklaces. Carol Dauplaise recently died and will be missed in the jewelry world. I would guess this to be a circa1980's piece.

Item: SN13-1269

Price: $22.50 US

•••

Description: KJL Clear and Black Diamond Rhinestone Bow Brooch - 2" x 2", this interesting design uses kind of a "squiggly" ribbon effect, with lots of twists and turns. One tail and the inner parts of the loops use black diamond rhinestones, the rest are clear. Darkened silvertone setting, with edges showing enough to give an outlined effect. This is marked (copyright symbol) KJL (no dots) and Thailand, indicating a made-for-QVC piece. Though this is not the couture line mark, due to QVC's strict quality control I would not hesitate to buy a QVC piece.

Item: SP9-1225

Price: $58.50 US

•••

Description: The D.F.B. Co. Carmen Art Locket Expansion Bracelet - Slightly different than the SB10-1154 piece, this opens into a two picture locket, and still has the original hard plastic protector on one side. Also marked Made in U.S.A., this is made for a child or small adult wrist. Goldtone, excellent condition. Expansion band is about 1/2" wide.

Item: SB10-1212

Price: $32.50 US

•••

Description: By Gale Opaque Navy and Clear Rhinestone Necklace and Earrings Set - Here's a signature you don't see often, in a stone color you almost never see. Navy cabochon stones in pears and rounds make up the necklace, and navy cabochon navettes make up the clip earrings. Both pieces accented with clear rhinestones. Silvertone setting. Necklace is a festoon look choker, approximately 15" in length, earrings are 1 3/4" x 1". Only one earring is marked "By Gale", with Gale in script and a crown above it, on an applied cartouche. The clears are greying, and it appears that the ring at the end without the hook may be an add-on (due to the short length, this does not seem unreasonable). I think an extension could easily be added if needed. Otherwise great condition, a rare set for someone who wears navy (and there aren't too many people who don't have some navy). Navy is actually a difficult color to find even in contemporary jewelry.

Item: SS7-1182

Price: $69.50/set US

•••

Description: Jeanne "Angel on My Shoulder" Brooch - This piece is positioned so that the only way that makes sense is to wear it on top of something, such as your shoulder. It can be viewed from front or back. Goldtone with clear rhinestones going all the way around the halo. 1 1/8" x 1 3/8" x 7/8" deep. Fun piece from a rarely found company.

Item: SP7-1179

Price: $29.50 US

•••

Description:  McClelland Barclay Swag Double Brooch - While the design of the main portion of this piece is typical for this company, this swag design is rarely found. Main brooch is 2" in diameter and uses deep blue pears and octagon, prong set, with usual clear stones in a deco-type design. Smaller pin is 3/4", with a single blue octagon and a few clear rhinestones. Chains are approximately 7", give or take. Usual minor wear to plating on top side, normal wear on back side. Unfortunately the wear is right where the signature is, and the signature is light and not complete (only cClelland is readily seen with a 10X loupe, part of Barclay is there but you can't really tell what you are seeing.) Excellent vintage condition.

Item: SP7-1178

Price: $225.00 US

•••

Description: Danecraft Sterling Floral Motif Link Bracelet - This piece was difficult to photograph because it has a non-openable safety chain (I think a spring ring clasp could be added if you desired) but it best photoed at this angle. Stylized floral with large leaves are the motif of the links, foldover clasp is signed Danecraft Sterling with Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. in the center of the signature. 1" wide, 8" wearable length. Excellent condition, I have lightly handpolished the upper parts of the design so the beauty of the work can be seen. 26.9 grams.

Item: SB9-1153

Price: $69.50 US

Sorry, SOLD!

•••

Description: DFB Co. "Deluxe Carmen" Sweetheart Expansion Bracelet - The DFB Company was the D.F. Briggs Company of Attleboro, Massachusetts, which later became Briggs, Bates and Bacon. These pieces were apparently manufactured over a period of years (decades, in fact) which the first ones around the turn of the 20th century, going clear up to the 1940's. Some people believe that the ones marked DFB are earlier pieces, but I can't confirm that. I have seen a magazine advertisement that showed these being sold with a matching heart necklace. At any rate, this one is marked Deluxe fairly close to the center, and then Carmen, The D.F.B. Co., and Made in U.S.A. towards the center back. This is in excellent condition, all stones are original and other than a little wear on the smallest heart this is in extremely nice shape for its age. I am assuming that the heart would be engraveable on either front or back if desired. This is about 6 1/4" around unstretched, it fits nicely on my small adult wrist, but this may have been originally for a teenager (though 70-100 years ago adults were much smaller than they are now!)

Item: SB10-1154

Price: $45.00 US

•••

Description: Botticelli Faux Pearl Clip Earrings - These seem quite similar to a pair of Tortolani earrings that I had a few years back, and I am thinking there is perhaps a shared manufacturer, but I am unable to verify this. Creamy white glass pearls are "eggplant" shaped, and set in a heavy silvertone frame (factory oxidized) with a motif that has a floral feel to it. Clip mechanisms, about 1" x 7/8", excellent condition. Signed copyright symbol, Botticelli in script. This is a difficult to find signature.

Item: SE10-1157

Price: $27.50 US

•••

Description: Laguna Glass Pearl and Clear AB Glass Bead Fringe Necklace and Bracelet Set - Top quality clear aurora borealised beads in different sizes and shapes alternate with white glass pearls in different sizes in this showy set. Goldtone findings, necklace adjusts to 16" and bracelet is a standard 7". Necklace graduates slightly to a maximum width of about 1 1/4"; bracelet is about 1" at widest point. Both pieces taper a little due to the largest beads being used at the center and the smallest at the ends. Bracelet closes with a spring ring and is unmarked, necklace is signed on the hook. Any of the Laguna I have had have been of excellent quality; the handwork to assemble this justifies the price without considering the beads. Excellent condition, I see no problems here.

Item: SS7-1130

Price: $85.00/set US

•••

Description: Robert Mandle Cabochon Brooch in Faux Jade and Faux Lapis - Done in kind of a puffy crescent moon shape, this goldtone piece is loaded with glass cabs in dark blue and multi greens, approximately 2" x 1 1/4". Excellent shape with just a bit of plating loss on the goldtone rope twist on one side of one stone. The black looking edge on the photo of the back side is just reflection of what I was wearing and is not there in person, backside plating is excellent. Signed Mandle. Classic 1960's look.

Item: SP11-1100

Price: $32.50 US

•••

Description: Monet Lavender and Clear Rhinestone Earrings - Probably late 1980's or early 1990's, these are in unworn condition. Three lavender colored rhinestone marquises surround a clear rhinestone round that is topped with two smaller clear rounds. Clip finding is signed Monet. I believe these were referred to as "comfort clips" as the clip back would conform to the wearer's earlobe. There is probably a lovely matching necklace out there somewhere looking for these!

Item: SE11-1099

Price: $10.00 US

•••

Description: Engle Brothers (EB) Sterling Necklace and Earrings Set - EB pieces often have a deco era look to them, though personally I think these pieces are from the 1940's. This set uses a feature that is not uncommon to EB necklaces, a double clasp, so that presumably you could buy one back chain (very nice flattened cobra chain) and use it interchangeably with various front sections. This uses lime green pears and clear rhinestones set into little leaf shapes, with a center clear dentelle stone, and two navettes flanking the lowest green pear. Choker length, this is about 15 1/2", a little hard to measure accurately because of the curve of the front, two foldover clasps. Clasps are marked sterling and EB in a diamond shape, and the center part is marked sterling on the back of the lowest pear. The earrings are both marked sterling on the earscrews and on the body of the earrings, so it is easy to see if the rhinestone part became separated from the neckchain that there would be no defining EB marks (though stylistically these pieces are pretty identifiable.) All the sterling has been rhodium plated, absolutely no signs of tarnish, and the set is in excellent shape, with one clear navette starting to turn yellow. The earrings are particularly exquisite.

Item: SS12-1093

Price: $95.00/set US

•••

Description: Castlecliff Clear Rhinestone Necklace with Unfoiled Pear Drops - Beautiful and unusual piece for this rarely found company. This is very flattering, done to look somewhat like a lariat style, with one side slightly shorter than the other (en negligee). Double rows of two baguettes alternate with three round rhinestones and culminate with two large unfoiled glass pears. Rhinestone set push in hidden clasp and safety chain, both marks of an originally expensive piece. Excellent condition.

Item: SN1-1050

Price: $149.50 US

•••

Description: Astra Intense Aqua and Clear Rhinestone Necklace - Astra is not a common signature, but apparently it was a mark used by the Joseph Wiesner company; all the Wiesner jewelry that I have had has been this same color combination. This pretty design uses two rows of deep aqua pears, along with clear rhinestone chain. Better quality rhinestone set clasp. All stones with the exception of the clasp are prong set. Excellent condition, 15" wearable length x 1 1/2" for the bib section.

Item: SN4-988

Price: $59.50 US

•••

Description: Edlee Demi Parure in Blue/Aqua/Green - Highly sought after and rarely found, Edlee, when found, often uses nautilus-type stones, which are not only a beautiful shape but also reflect more than one color, in this case, light to medium blue and light to medium green, depending on the angle. These pieces are accented with sapphire blue, aqua, aurora borealis and colored aurora borealis stones. Earrings are clip, 1 1/2" x 3/4"; bracelet is slightly domed, 7" x 1 1/2",with foldover clasp; necklace is adjustable to 15", 2" at center front, and chain ends with a larger aqua stone. All pieces marked Edlee with copyright symbol, other than a little dimpling of the metal at the contact point on the earrings this set is in super condition. An Edlee collectors dream.

Item: SS1-1000

Price: $595.00 US

•••

Description: Bob Mackie Scarf Clip/Brooch - Done in a combination of red and purple guilloche enamel on goldtone, and accented with clear rhinestones in the center of the flowers, this basket motif brooch/scarf clip combination will look lovely all year round. About 2 3/8" x 2 3/8", in excellent, almost unworn condition, this comes in it's original box, which is actually in very good condition except for being worn on the edges. This is about 20 years old, and was a QVC piece. Mr. Mackie is an award winning clothing designer best known for his work for Carol Burnett on her television show, whose design talents have been also used on items as diverse as collectible Barbie dolls, perfume, and items for the home.

Item: SP2-931

Price: $29.50 US

•••

Description: Wendy Gell Fuchsia/Sapphire RS Clamper Bracelet - This has a subtle beach theme, with what looks like seashells at the front opening of the clamper and driftwood at the back. Goldtone, accented with fuchsia and bright sapphire blue rhinestones and smaller flatback clear stones in rows around the swirls. About 3/8" wide with inner dimensions of 2 1/4" x 1 7/8", this should fit an average size wrist. Hinged back, opens easily and fits nicely. Comes in original box with original romance card, everything in excellent shape, bracelet appears to never have been worn. QVC production from about 20 years ago. Romance card says the item was handmade.

Item: SB3-930

Price: $32.50 US

•••

Description: Austria Vitrail Light Rivoli Button Clip Earrings - The word vitrail appears to be French for stained glass; in the context of rhinestone colors, vitrail light is a beautiful combination of lavender and aqua. While I did not get a great picture of these, the stones are rivoli cut (pointed top) in a multi prong setting, and as with almost every piece marked Austria, the stones are exceptional. Multi prong set in goldtone, clip findings; marked on the bottom of the earring (I almost missed the mark). About 11/16" in diameter, goldtone setting. Plating on earring backs and findings is quite worn (these must have been someone's favorite earrings!) but from the front these are in great shape.

Item: SE7-849

Price: $17.50 US

•••

Description: Madeleine LCTopaz Earrings - Another rarely found name, the Madeleine company seems to have been NYC-based, and perhaps was manufactured in part by DeLizza & Elster. Both earrings are signed, and the design is made up to light Colorado and Colorado topaz rhinestones, all prong set, using a large center stone, and smaller navettes and rounds. Excellent condition, about 15/16" in diameter.

Item: SE7-851

Price: $32.50 US

Sorry, SOLD!

•••

Description: DeMario Smoky Topaz and Goldtone Earrings - While not in the Haskellesque style that DeMario was noted for, these elegant earclips are well-made and I'm sure match a necklace/bracelet/brooch somewhere. The large pendaloque pear stone is unfoiled, and sits in a fancy cast goldtone "cup", kind of like it is emerging from a clamshell. Clip findings are of the type used by D&E, but I have no reason to believe that they were manufactured by them, other than the fact that they are well-constructed. About 7/8" x 1/2". Excellent condition.

Item: SE7-848

Price: $29.50 US

•••

Description: B. David Aurora Borealis/Glass Pearl Earrings - Done in clear aurora borealis rhinestones in pears, marquise, and rounds, and accented with small white glass pearls. Silvertone setting, usual triangular earclip used by this company, and signed on the mechandism. About 7/8" x 5/8", great condition, and much more sparkly in person.

Item: SE7-847

Price: $20.00 US

•••

Description: Eugene Blue Bead/Rhinestone Earrings - Beautiful, labor intensive earrings from a vintage company who, in my opinion, equals the best Miriam Haskell pieces. Beaded florettes, prong set rhinestones, and single beads are wired into a double filigree setting. Clip mechanisms, earrings are 1 1/2" x 1" at the widest points. Excellent condition, no flaws that I can see here.

Item: SE6-857

Price: $145.00 US

•••

Description: Eugene Earrings in Aqua/Metallic Gold-Copper Beads/RS - This is a gorgeous color combination and one certainly not unknown in contemporary clothing. Antiqued silvertone setting features a large aqua glass pearl, surrounded by aqua and smoke topaz pear rhinestones, arumed bicone beads, and fleurettes of coppery seed beads surrounding aqua and smoked topaz rhinestones. A few white lined clear seed beads and small aqua barrel beads have been thrown in for good measure! All rhinestones are prong set, with everything else handwired to a double filigree setting. 1 1/4" x 7/8". Excellent condition, with plating wear to the back of the clip mechanisms and at wear points, but nothing that would be seen when worn. Masterpieces.

Item: SE6-855

Price: $175.00 US

Description: Mosell Chandelier Earrings - Frederick Mosell made jewelry starting in 1941 and went until?? one source said 1980, but I'm not certain. These goldtone earrings feature pink, green and orange cabochons, which are topped with pink, green, and topaz colored rhinestones, and a single green rhinestone in the middle of the top portion. Clip mechanisms, 2 3/8" x 1 1/8" at widest points. Mosell is difficult to find, quite a collector's coup, and these are very wearable. One pink cabochon is slightly deeper pink than the other so it may be a replacement, but that seems unlikely because these stones would be absolutely impossible to find. Otherwise excellent condition.

Item: SE6-852

Price: $150.00 US

•••

Description: Eugene Blue/Green/Purple Bead/RS Earrings - Another lovely color combination that has stood the test of time, these use emerald and green tourmaline colored rhinestones, light blue, peacock blue, green, and purple aurora borealis crystal beads, all set in silvertone, with the rhinestones all prong set. Everything wire to a double filigree setting. Earrings are clip, about 1 1/4" x 3/4". Kind of a crescent moon or paisley shaped design. Excellent condition.

Item: SE6-856

Price: $95.00 US

Description: Alice Caviness Chalk White and Green Bead Necklace - Alice Caviness, like many other well known lines, produced pieces that ran the gamut from ho-hum and maybe even hideous to some of the most beautiful pieces pieces around, and this necklace certainly fits the upper end of the spectrum. Rhinestone ball beads in both round and pear shapes are done in opaque white rhinestones in a light green enameled setting. Mint green opaque aurora borealis bicone beads and "puzzle" beads made up of a filigree/wheel combination, are separated by rhinestone rondelles set with faux jade rhinestones. All of these beads are extremely difficult if not impossible to find, both on the vintage and contemporary market. This strand measures approximately 24" and finishes with a fancy push in clasp. I have restrung this for your security. Awesome 1960's piece.

Item: SN6-842

Price: $95.00 US

•••

Description: Halbe Rhinestone & Enamel Floral Brooch - Halbe is a rarely found mark, and there seems to be little information about the company, other than they were in business in the 1950's and into the early 1960's, and based in NYC. If this piece is any indication, the jewelry was very nice! This three dimensional piece uses black enameling and clear rhinestone pave. This measures about 1 3/4"- 1 7/8" in diameter, depending on where you measure, and is 1/2" deep. Silvertone setting. Very elegant piece with a fine jewelry feel. Some of the clears have greyed with age, and the back side shows wear, but all in all this is a great piece worthy of any comprehensive colletion. Book piece, shown in Julia Carroll's 202 book.

Item: SP4-837

Price: $79.50 US

•••

Description: FN (FM?) Dogcollar Necklace - This looks extremely similar to some of the KJL necklaces we have had in both quality, design, and construction. The mark is very hard to read, looks like FN or FM and is followed by what could be a number (87?) and a copyright symbol but it is hard to say for certain. This 9 strand glass pearl collar uses 3.5mm light cream pearls with rhinestone set terminals and stations and a center faux onyx cabochon accented with clear rhinestone set swirls. Adjustable from about 12 1/2" to 16", this could be extended if necessary. Center is about 1 7/8" wide. Excellent condition, and priced much less than a comparable KJL piece.

Item: SN6-806

Price: $59.50 US

•••

Description: Les Bernard Pave Set Doorknocker Earrings - This must have been a popular design for Les Bernard because I have had the top portion pave set with black rhinestones (without the doorknocker part). These are goldtone and set with all clear rhinestones. The clears are not as "white" as they originally were but still have lots of sparkle, however they are price accordingly. 1 1/2" x 1" and very three dimensional. The doorknocker part swings freely.

Item: SE7-798

Price: $14.50 US

•••

Description: Accessocraft NYC Art Glass Brooch - I'm not sure whether this would be considered Murano glass, or what, but art glass oval cabochons in shades of navy, red, white, olive green and aqua surrounda goldtone center crest with a crown motif. Goldtone setting, 1 3/4" in diameter, excellent condition. From what I have been able to find online, this "heraldic" type of motif is not uncommon for this company, which was in business from 1930-1998, and whose plethora of designers included Anne Klein. Perfect for those with understated taste. We got a bargain, so do you.

Item: SP10-808

Price: $16.50 US

•••

Description: Les Bernard Single Strand Glass Pearl Necklace - While this is not the type of thing that the Les Bernard Company was known for, these are nice quality glass pearls, hand knotted, and a nice weight. Foldover clasp, signature hang-tag. Pearls are a medium cream, 6mm, 18" long. Excellent condition.

Item: VN2-015

Price: $10.00 US

•••

Description: Celebrity NY 6 Strand Glass Pearl and Chain Necklace - For those who prefer a more "airy" look, this versatile piece would not only work for a member of the bridal party but as a piece to wear for work or out for the evening. Decorative clasp could also be worn to the side rather than in back if desired. Pearls are white, chain is goldtone and clasp is a push-in v style. About 23". Excellent condition, nice weight.  

Item: VN2-016

Price: $12.50 US

•••

Description: AMCo Gold-filled Hearts and Flowers Pin Pendant - Done in aqua marquises and rounds and accented with a glass pearl and clear rhinestones, this charming sentimental piece can be worn as a brooch or as a pendant on a chain. Marked 1/20/12K GF and AMCO. 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". Very good condition with slight darkening of clears commensurate with age. Probably WWII era. The round aquas are in square settings but appear to be original. Stones became a scarce commodity during the war and manufacturers had to make do with what they could get their hands on.

Item: SPP12-742

Price: $24.50 US

•••

Description: CRCo Goldfilled Pin Pendant Necklace and Earring Set - If you like yellow and you like "cat's eye" type stones, then this is a great set! Pin pendant is hung on a reptilian type chain with a thumbless spring ring clasp, chain is unmarked. Pin pendant is marked 1/20 12K and CR Co, with the R larger than the C and the o of Co inside the C. Pendant has six prong set small clears in the center over a metal star, which tops two layers of yellow oval stones. Earrings are screwbacks with a single yellow bezel set stone topped with 5 prong set clears. Earrings are marked 1/20 12K GF on the edges of the earscrews. Neck chain is about 15", pin pendant is 1 1/2" in diameter and earrings are 1/2" x 5/8". The only condition issue I can see here is that the clears have greyed to the point that they almost look like black diamond rhinestones, but I don't find this to be offensive at all.

Item: SS12-739

Price: $49.50 US

•••

Description: Andamodes New York - I can find little information about this company but this is definitely a quality piece; if you collect unusual signatures this is a coup for you. Maltese cross design in glass half pearls, faux carnelian and clear rhinestone, with the larger stones dog tooth/similar settings. About 2 1/4" x 2", slightly domed, very good condition with some plating wear on the back.

Item: SP11-649

Price: $54.50 US

•••

Description: KJL White Lucite? Rose Pin and Earrings Set - A well-known design for this company, this uses an opaque white plastic for the rose blossom with a paved center, border on the black enamel leaves, and on the stem on the brooch. The brooch's rose is slightly more white in some lights than the earrings, and the pieces are marked slightly differently - the earrings are marked with a copyright symbol and KJL on both the clip mechanism and the back of the earring; the brooch is also marked with the copyright symbol and KJL but the goldtone setting underneath the pinstem actually says Korea! I am not certain of the significance of this. Brooch is 2 1/2" x 1 1/2"; earrings are about 1" in diameter.

Item: SS8-555

Price: $72.50 US

•••

Description: Carol Dauplaise Long Single Strand Necklace in Aqua/Amethyst - 30" long strand with opaque turquoise colored glass beads, goldtone findings and what I am pretty certain are tumbled genuine amethyst quartz "nuggets". Nice weight; sliding typical Dauplaise locking clasp works well but you probably won't need it as this fits easily over your head. Works equally well on its own or as a layering piece.

Item: SN8-556

Price: $45.00 US

•••

Description: Alice Caviness Jonquil and Topaz Rhinestone Earrings - Very sparkly in person! Stones are all prong set in goldtone, dome shaped. 1 1/8" in diameter. Jonquil (light yellow) marquises surround a center clear stone; borders are done in a double row of topaz rounds and marquises Caviness jewelry is difficult to find. Excellent quality and condition.

Item: SE1-440

Price: $65.00 US

•••

Description: Duane Snowflake Necklace and Earrings - Whether this was originally intended to be a snowflake is purely conjecture on my part, but this intricate overlapping design would look smashing for Christmas or any time of year.  Emerald green glass baguette and round rhinestones are interspersed with clear rhinestone pears, rounds and baguettes.  Set in silvertone.  Screwback earrings measure 1 1/2" long; adjustable necklace will fit up to a 15" neck.  Small solder repair on one earring.  All pieces marked Duane.

Item: SS3-027

Price: $50.00 US

•••

Description: Dewees Full Parure with Extra Earrings - A rare and highly regarded name by vintage collectors "in the know", the owner of Dewees was originally a designer for Trifari, then quit and started his own company. Dewees was only in business for a relatively short time, and when the company closed the owner went back to work for Trifari. All but the bracelet are made like fine jewelry with both gold and silvertone on the same piece. Pendant has goldtone ribbed oval center with a single glass pearl surrounded by clear pave set in silvertone at N-S-E-W points; pendant is 2 1/2" x 1 3/4" including bail . Bail is silvertone; chain may not be original but is marked goldfilled both on the clasp and on hanging metal tag and is substantial and long (26"+). Smaller clip earrings are same design but have the oval on it's side with only two stations, one set with a center pearl, the other is all rhinestones (and this looks original), 1" x 7/8". Longer dangle earrings are an "eveningwear" version of the smaller clips, just adding on a rhinestone and pearl dangle portion, 1 1/2" x 7/8" (notice clip finding is the one often found on Bogoff). Brooch is small, 1 3/8" x 1", and does not use any pearls. Bracelet is done in all goldtone, with no pearls and only baguette rhinestones on the terminals of each of the 6 links (24 total), foldover clasp, 8" x 1". Notice that this is longer than the average for the time; the bracelet, dangle earrings and brooch belonged to the wife of the owner of Dewees and were presumably custom made for her (information about Dewees comes from the son of the owner, who was kind enough to share the information.) I am including box the necklace and small earrings were found in, marked Jarecki's Jewelers and Silversmiths, Inc., Erie, PA. This is a once in a lifetime find, and you will be pleased with the quality of the pieces.

Description: Thelma Deutsch Starfish Pin and Earring Set - While not all of Thelma's pieces were japanned, her use of this black finish was certainly one of her "trademarks". These pieces are set with light and dark sapphire, Montana and blue aurora borealis rhinestones. The earrings are clip, 1 1/8" in diameter. The brooch is about 2 1/2" in diameter. Excellent original condition. TD sets are difficult to find.

Description: Dalsheim Rhinestone Ball Earrings - Another rarely seen name.  These clip earrings each use 7 seven mm clear rhinestone balls to surround a ten mm center rhinestone ball.  About 1" in diameter; a very pretty, feminine look that is complimentary to most people.

Item: SE8-084

Price: $26.50 US

Description: Laguna Bronze Glass Pearl and Madeira Topaz AB Crystal Earrings - Laguna was a higher end costume company specializing in jewelry using beaded components. These beads are attached to cagework using clear rhinestone headpins. Approx. 1" in diameter and about 1/2" deep at the center, these exhibit typical 1960's styling. French clip mechanisms, excellent original condition.

Item: SE3-248

Description: Apex Art Buckles - Though technically not jewelry, this large buckle set could be sewn onto clothing or onto an existing belt. (Each side has an upper and lower loop for sewing.)  Both pieces are signed Apex Art and use a mix of emerald green rhinestones and clear rhinestones (one clear has been replaced).  Great design; each half is just shy of 2" in diameter.

Description: M&S Gold Filled Retro Pin-Pendant and Earring Set - This lovely set, with an intriguing "stepped" design, came to me as a pin-pendant (without a chain) and earrings, so I have added a round 1940's snake chain, which can easily be removed with a pair of pliers, for those who would like to use this as a pendant necklace. The colored stones are purple unfoiled emerald cut glass stones and clear rhinestones, with all stones prong set. The earrings are screwback and measure 1 1/8" x 1/2"; the pendant is 3" x 1 1/2" at the widest points, but looks very delicate with its airy design. The added chains make about a 20" necklace.

Description: Jonne Taupe and White Seed Bead Earrings - The true color of the beads was difficult to get - maybe light khaki is a closer description, kind of a light green-brown, with opaque white. All hand-wired. Goldtone setting. Jonne mark is on the findings. 1 1/8" in diameter. Very good original condition.

Description: KL Artisan Glass Beaded Pendant Necklace - A lovely combination of peacock (deep aqua) blue, capri blue and black beads with an artisan glass pendant. Pendant is about 2 1/2" x 7/8"; chain is 26". Larger beads graduate in size up the sides, with black seed beads going around the back of the neck. Beads feed thru a channel on the pendant; endless strand has no clasp but will easily go over your head. Very nicely done, quite contemporary piece, probably made within the last 10-15 years.

Description: Pair of Monet Cream Enameled Butterfly Pins - Nicely made and pretty, these pieces reflect the 1970's when cream/gold was considered understated elegance and always appropriate. Each piece about 1 3/4" x 1 1/2" and three dimensional. Identical pins, the one on the right has more enamel wear than the other, otherwise excellent condition.
