Vintage Deco Enamel Bookchain Egyptian Turquoise necklace & ER

Cleo would be Jealous if she saw you in this wouldn't she? Large gilt drops ( 3") with genuine turquoise stones, drop from this enamel deco raised relief  bookchain necklace. The long ( 3" earrings) have lovely gold filled wires with tiny balls at the top. The necklace is quite amazing because each drop is 2 1/2" long and has the look of russian ormolu. The necklace is 19" long around the neck with a hidden floral slide in clasp. This set is even more dramatic in person and will definitely get you the compliments!! It has  been well taken care of and has little if any wear. Festoon necklaces really compliment anything you wear, but when you wear this no one will be paying attention, they will all be envying the woman who wears it!

Antique DECO Chrysoprase marcasite RING

The first photos is the true color of this genuine chrysoprase and marcasite ring. Once you own a piece of antique chrysoprase you will find yourself entranced with this fascinating stone and start wanting to own more of it. The color is a liquid green and in some of the photos you see is looks whitish on the edges. WHat is neat is that there is no white in this stone and the camera sees the eerieness of this with the white cast. The setting is large ( over 3/4" wide) and this is set in a very fancy etched and raised relief setting. The ring is a size 6 1/2 and is solid sterling. The marcasites add a sparkle around this most wonderful antique stone that has a barrel shape when you see it from the side. Has not been polished because the patina on this is really much nicer in person.

Madame Svetlanka ANTIQUE POOLS OF LIGHT Sterling NECKLACE & ER

ROMANIAN GYPSY!"
What enigmatic history these words conjure up! These powerful jewels, Pools of Light as they have come to be known, are as rare and spectacular as the elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Our provenance tells us that these undrilled quartz miniature crystal balls were procured at an antique market on the outskirts of Paris many years ago. The original owner, Mme. Svetlanka of Romania, smuggled these rare, silver ensconced "pools," into France with her . She secreted these precious jewels within the hem of her flamboyant skirt when she fled Romania. We are hoping that there is a "Svetlanka-chosen" recipient out there who is pre-destined to temporarily own the powers represented by these rare and stunning jewels. Could it be you? And if you need a little history on these mystical jewels here is a little background information. For thousands of years this optically clear quartz ( also called rock crystal) has been used as gemstones because of its enchanting ability to absorb and affect light in the way that it does. Images viewed through genuine rock crystal balls appear to be reversed or upside down ( see photo). They are brilliant, luminous and will be a conversation piece wherever worn. These literal works of art are finely crafted and are from turn of the century . This necklace has 14 UNDRILLED genuine rock crystal orbs which measure 5/8” or 15mm. The necklace measures 19 1/4” long. Each ball is wrapped in sterling silver wire and linked with a beautiful chain between each. The chain has a nice patina to it as I’ve not cleaned it up in order to maintain its vintage appearance. The long deco earrings have a single orb that dances in the light as you move. They are screw on and measure 1 ¼” long. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT set!!!) .

French Vintage baroque Jewel Encrusted dragon bracelet  with history

We acquired this from a family member of 1940's costumer in London who created many accessories and costumes for dramatic plays like Hamlet. DRAMA does not even begin to describe this massive royal red and purple encrusted cuff bracelet. (THis is from her personal collection and I will be offering more as they come to me). This one is fit for a queen or even Lady Guinevere because not only is it the most dramatic bracelet I have ever seen, but it is also the most glass jewel laden one in such great condition. It has a gilded center piece with two dragons on either side of a large purple glass stone.  The detailing in this center piece is just the start of this amazing bracelet! The sides are loaded with fiery opalescent moonstones , brilliant aurora borealis and garnets. Apparently when the stage lights hit these beauties it sparkled and looked like it was the Queen's treasure! All the stones are GLASS and the settings are also a rich gilt. This is a solid bracelet that is one of a kind ( I am sure they never made duplicates of these for plays, as they would be retired as soon as the play was over).. IF you want to own a bracelet that no one else can ever have another of AND you want to be the ENVY of everyone around you then this 2 1/3" wide extravagant bracelet is for you. Don't miss out at the last minute on this exciting beauty because I doubt it lasts long. This has NEVER been up for auction, nor out of a collection until NOW. Truly a costume jewelry queen's most wanted piece!!! It measures 6" long with a gap of 1 1/4". All the stones are intact and original to the piece.The photos do not do this one justice at all.  I have more photos of this spectacular bracelet if you want to email me. Irreplaceable so there are no returns on this.

The 2 side drops are a luminescent black and white faceted stripe that bring out the richness of this fabulous piece! This is not a reproduction and dates in the 20-30's. The brilliant glass rhinestones in this forbidding dragon sparkle as if they are real gemstones. It is a piece you will own and get lots of compliments on and you will be impressed with the quality of it. Don't miss out at the last minute.

RARE PEACOCK EYE Watch pin & Nouveau  LOCKET

Most people can only DREAM of owning a set like this and believe me they are far and few between! This is a peacock eye (circa 1890-1920) brooch ( made for a locket or a victorian watch) with a raised relief figural peacock and woman on the locket. WOW what a FABULOUS piece of JEWELRY! The peacock eye is a Victorian symbol for the evil eye and this one has a brilliant colored hand blown Bohemian glass stone made of electric blue and meadow green foiling to resemble the center or “eye” of a peacock tail feather. In the ancient myths of Egypt, Greece, and Rome, the Peacock feather was a symbol of the ‘evil eye". Christians on the other hand adopted the symbol of the peacock to represent immortality. In any case The peacock is a symbol of beauty, prosperity, royalty, love, compassion, the soul, and peace. The brooch and locket together are 3 1/3" long and both are in GREAT condition. Truly something that will remain a collectible for many more centuries

Rare Vintage Risque Moulin Rouge style Reverse painted Necklace earrings

I have never seen a risqué reverse painted set like this which leads me to believe that is it was probably not reproduced in much quality. SO this is a rare treat to offer such an unusual daring set with different hand painted women doing the can-can (more correctly not hyphenated, as in the original French: cancan). Usually performed by a chorus line of female dancers who wear costumes with long skirts, petticoats, and black stockings, that hearkens back to the fashions of the 1890s, the main features of the dance was the lifting up and manipulation of the skirts, with high kicking and suggestive, provocative body movements.. Sometimes called the scandalous dance, it sometimes caused people dancing the cancan to be arrested . Many of these tantalizing women were known for their appearances at the Moulin Rouge. To see this glorified in vintage jewelry is such an exciting thing because when the Moulin Rouge brought forth the can-can, it caused the artists like French painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec to produce several paintings and a large number of posters of cancan dancers. Like miniature pieces of art ( since these are hand painted) you are able to wear a piece of history that jewelry became an important part of.. This huge ( 4” long) pendant hangs from hand faceted jet glass beads that measure 22” long. The pendant has pale blue glass rhinestones that bring out the colors in the delightful clothing on these women. Hanging from the large pendant is an enamel bow shaped adornment and a swinging chandelier drop. The earrings are 1 ¾” long and are clip on . I have this shown next to a dime to show you how extravagant this is! This is in very good vintage condition. The clasp seems to have the most wear ( probably from being worn so much). Don’t miss out on this beauty at the last minute because I am sure it will go fast! And now for the tedious part that you probably already know: We offer Layaway on all our pieces regardless of which site it comes from. Please remember that vintage & antique items are not mint, nor are they perfect but they sure are full of old history and charm. Please use photos to make your decisions.. Remember that old glue and hot post offices may cause some stones in vintage pieces to loosen in shipping.

This wonderful exotic woodland nymph peeks her head out from two large gilded wings. In the center is the most beautifully colored huge glass stone that reminds you of bahama waters mixed with deep cobalt’s and pinks.

The thick chain that wraps around your neck measures 22" long and the center piece to this fabulous necklace is 4 1/2" long ( includes the center tassel) and the side drops on chains measure 6" long. The large golden drops at the end of each of the side tassels measure 1" x 1 3/4". The necklace also has a genuine chrysoprase stone in the center tassel which offers spiritual protection.

Exotic Figurehead Czech Glass LONG Nouveau style earrings

Mucha, a well known art nouveau artist who was known for these figures, with many depicting the moon and the stars and exotic nymphs caused a wonderful trend in the design of nouveau jewelry. These have an iridescent Czech glass center that looks as if it has a light of its own. Rich cobalt’s and turquoise colors bring out the colors as if it is a flame. The mucha style woman appears to be holding it in her hands as if to show its power. The back is open so color reflects thru it in ways that are unbelievable. The pierced earrings are 3 1/4" long ( counting the wire). Rich antiqued patina has given it a deep golden bronze color. We bought these for display in our store and they have never been worn since that purchase years ago. And now for the tedious part that you probably already know: Please remember that vintage & antique items are not mint, nor are they perfect but they sure are full of old history and charm. All items are sold as is and as found (used and probably vintage). Please use photos to make your decisions. My definition of Vintage is a style or method formerly in vogue.

Huge Glass enamel Figural Nouveau necklace
Huge Glass enamel Figural Nouveau necklace

The sensuality of the female form was used in so many art nouveau jewelry pieces which we admire so much that when we saw this fabulous remake of that design we just had to have it. The sheer size of these faceted glass beads of golden yellow and jet black shows off this rhinestone and enamel huge solid pendant. Tiny faux pearls that shape this fan pendant are accented with rhinestones and black tear drop faceted glass stones. Larger faux pearl cabs complete the design. Add to that this extremely large golden faceted prism drop and you have one jaw dropping necklace! The largest glass bead on the neck chain is almost 1"and the center piece of this with the art nouveau style face pendant is a whopping 2 1/2" across and 4" long ( includes the faceted drop). The length of this necklace ( excluding the drop) is 22". This is in excellent condition and is quite amazing! This was purchased at an art show so I am not sure of its designer.

HUGE PRIMITIVE EGYPTIAN REVIVAL CORAL Goddess COLLAR NECKLACE BROOCH and pendant
HUGE PRIMITIVE EGYPTIAN REVIVAL CORAL Goddess COLLAR NECKLACE BROOCH and pendant

This is one amazing piece that is totally hand crafted with real turquoise and real coral. The sheer size of this is impressive ( see photo next to a ruler) , but the work that is involved in this is amazing. AND you are getting the extra pendant ( attached in the photo) and the large BROOCH TOO!!! To think NONE of this was done with a machine gives it that arts and crafts feel.

THis measures 17 1/3" long around the neck ( n0ot counting the large pendant that is already attached) and is a whopping 2" wide. Each panel is hinged and it lays well when on. This is something you see in museums and is for high end collectors. A true show piece that will bring many compliments. As a matter of fact, a person who worked for one of the most famous museums has told us that they have never seen another like it.

IF you are a dealer and want to make people come to your booth then this is it.
If you are a connoisseur of art deco jewelry then this is the piece that is the ULTIMATE. Very few pieces of semi precious stones are missing is any has wonderful patina.

Truly an exception piece that needs a GOOD HOME. The brooch is a Nepalese gold and gem encrusted Ghau of Vishnu,the four-armed Vishnu seated on the back of Garuda. The necklace has the four arms Avalokitesvhara (Chenrezig) of turquoise seated on the single lotus of Coral.My price is firm but I do offer layaway.

This will require insurance which is not included in the shipping price. It will depend on where it goes as to how much. I don't want to see this get damaged or lost because it is a rare one of a kind necklace.
