Rare Victorian tortoiseshell pique drop earrings, faulted, but lovely. Gold ear pieces, with top ball of tortoiseshell inlaid with gold and silver band and star. The drop is a pyramidal piece, heavily inlaid with gold and silver. One of these earrings has a tip broken off the drop. Style is rather Egyptian, probably made during England's fascination with the tomb discoveries in Egypt at the time. Drop from ear is 6o mm (2.3/8inches). Apart from the broken tip, they are in excellent condition. The fault could be restored, as luckily the break does not affect the gold inlay - the pointed tip could be built up.
Antique Victorian Edwardian Starburst Salmon Red Coral Bead Brooch
This is an antique Victorian or Edwardian brooch. It has salmon red coral beads in a starburst pattern. The brooch is not marked but appears to be low karat gold. I am unable to test for items that are less than 10 karat. There are tiny seed pearls around the center bead and tiny hearts between the outer beads. There is one bead that is a darker color than the other beads. The brooch measures 1-1/8 inches in diameter. It has a C clasp. The brooch is in good condition but does have an age patina and may need cleaning or polishing. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by.

An exceptional piece of gold bearing quartz with loads of gold showing in the stone in it's original 14k bezel mounting. Attached to a rope chain creating a 19'' long necklace. The drop appears to have had it's pin back removed at some time. Quartz containing this much gold was and still is an exceptional example of a major vein deposit and was surely made in the middle of the 19th century to show off the discovery by some lucky prospector/miner to the world by giving this to a loved female to proudly wear.

Large 19th century Victorian tortoiseshell brooch inlaid with gold and silver pique work. Circa mid 1800s. The genuine tortoise shell is a convex domed shape, and the inlay work is the entwined initials AIE, for Amity, Infinity Eternity - there is a fancy border around the edge of the brooch. As is often with these gorgeous and collectable pique work pieces, they often are missing a little piece of inlay - there is a tiny piece missing on this one, and two edges of the initials are lifting from the surface. The lifting edges may very well be able to be set down with a suitable glue. There are two chips to the edge of the brooch as well - these could be filled if desired, this is an easy fixer. The little faults don't detract from the stylish design, and all are restorable. Beautiful piece, measuring 40mm in diameter with the original pin to the back. These pique pieces of jewelry are getting quite rare.

This old sash pin makes me chuckle - a very strange marriage of sweet flowers with flower- eating monsters. Maybe they are worms! 3 inches by 2 with very nicely handpainted and raised flowers on gold-washed filigree. My theory is that this was an early craft project and the 2 pieces were sold as a kit. C clasp, some wear on gold-wash, one chip on white center flower. Considered in pricing.

Chain with spring clasp is 24 inches and probably not the original but looks great. You can pass this one off for Grandma's. Probably Czech.
I have been assured that this ethnic looking necklace is not Scandanavian - clasp is too fancy. The 3 strands are some kind of silver or nickel silver - not marked. Came from a very old lady who said it was her mother's only piece of jewelry. Got any ideas? Please share. I guess Polish or Eastern Europe.
We do not know what this material is but it is not gutta percha because the moth worms chewed tiny edge areas, they eat only organic material like horn, baleen or tortoise. nicely engraved caps on each end of a good sized cross
This striking pin is just a bit over 1 inch square but the rainbow colored stones make a much bigger statement. I don't know much about the prongset,foilback stones but I guess Austrian?
