This is the coolest Art Deco designed pendant; made in three stacked tiers of rhinestone that remind me of the Empire State Building in NY. Around the bottom edge are red beads that are strung on wire through the settings for baguette cut rhinestones. The top holds square facet green stones. The piece is marked A Italian chain so it can be worn as a necklace. There is so much shine using the flash that is was rather hard to photograph. I've included one shot with natural light. Condition: Other than it being re-purposed, some of the baguette stones look a little ill set. They are very strong so we haven't attempted any repairs. Otherwise in very good condition.
These tortoise shell screw back earrings could belong to a number of eras, but I believe I have come to the proper conclusion through the process of elimination. Since I also have a tortoise shell necklace for sale that I thought was Victorian, I felt these were as well, especially since tortoise shell is now a banned material. However, the screw backs look too recent and do not look like those used in the mid 1800s. My next thought was that they were imitation tortoise made of Bakelite dating them to the 1930s. They do not test position for Bakelite though. The only option left seems to fit the physical characteristics of the earrings. The screw backs look like they date more around the early 1960s, right about the time women were turning away from these and clips and having their ears pierced. Also to be noted is that they were made by machine. I can see that the holes were drilled and the butterfly designed edges are too clean to be hand carved. That leaves only one possibility; they were made for the tourist trade in the Islands. On a tour back in the 80s I visited a native's home on Jamaica where I was shown a new catch of a large tortoise. It was heart breaking to me, but I was told that it was their way of survival. The turtles were caught and sold live to the restaurants that made soup from them for the tourist trade, and in turn sold the shells to other vendors that were either sold whole to tourists, or made into other objects for sale. Condition: The only condition issue is on the tip of one wing where it looks like the machine cut into the design more than was intended. It is not something that is noticed with the naked eye. Also the backs turn in position, but could be glued in place if you don't care for that option.

The first time I saw these was at an airport in Mexico and they were nearly $400 at the time. I have always assumed this was sterling and made there too, but since it is not marked I am selling it as a silver tone costume bracelet. The settings look like mauve stained mother of pearl, shellacked gray abalone, and facet plastic cabochons that are a deep green that look almost black. They may, however, all be plastic. This bracelet has me baffled for sure, and if costume will fool anyone. Adjustable with the toggle to over nine inches.
