Stunning Vintage Middle Eastern 800 Silver Filigree Carnelian Agate Bracelet: One of the most beautiful bracelets I have seen in this style, the Middle Eastern influence in this piece lends it a grace and charm all its own! The spun silver work is very fine, each linked panel hand crafted and set with a large deep brick red marquise carnelian agate, beautifully polished and securely mounted in a fancy bezel. The stones measure an inch long by 1/4" wide. The hidden push in clasp gives the bracelet a seamless look, the tongue of the clasp is marked 800 for silver content and also has a blurred makers mark. This bracelet is in excellent condition. The bracelet measures 7 1/4 by 1 1/8".
Vintage Chinese Export Carved Carnelian Agate Lotus Flower Silver Vermeil Brooch: This lovely vintage Chinese export brooch is crafted in silver vermeil. The center stone is a beautifully carved carnelian agate lotus flower motif. The back of the brooch is delicate filigree wire work. It appears at some time the original clasp was stabilized, and this was well done. The brooch has a tube hinge and c-clasp closure. The brooch does test as silver, most likely 800 silver as was commonly used on the early pieces. The lovely beaded edge frames the center stone beautifully. The brooch measures 1 3/4 by 1 1/4" and is unsigned.
Vintage Art Deco Sterling Silver Marcasite Black Onyx and Mother-of-Pearl Brooch: This gorgeous art deco brooch is crafted in sterling silver and set with an elongated emerald cut black onyx as the focal point. The black onyx is flanked on either side with shimmering mother-of-pearl inlay, with more MOP accenting the top and bottom. The stepped, angular design is set with sparkling marcasites, each stone bead set. The silver has a nice weight, the design classic deco. The brooch is marked 925 and measures 2 1/4 by 1 1/8".
Stunning Sterling Silver Marcasite and Multi Gemstone Bracelet: This stunning sterling silver bracelet is crafted in half circle links, each link separated with a bezel set oval gemstone of alternating amethyst, blue topaz and citrine. The whole bracelet is pave'd with glittering marcasites including around the gemstones. The bracelet closes with a hidden box clasp with the added touch of a safety lock on each side of the clasp. The bracelet is beautifully made, marked 925 and CL. The bracelet measures 8 by 5/8" wide and weighs 28.47 grams.
Wide Vintage Marcasite and Sterling Silver Band Ring: Amazing and huge sterling silver and marcasite band ring, crafted with a slight dome and nine rows of sparkling marcasites, each row separated with a textured silver line. Although the ring measures a size 7 1/2 on my mandrel, with wide bands it is best to buy a quarter size larger than you normally wear, as wide bands fit a bit differently. The ring measures 1" wide ( 24mm) and the shank tapers to 1/4"(7.5mm). It is marked 925 right at the edge of the band and also acid tested.
Vintage Sterling Silver Marcasite Ring West Germany: This lovely vintage ring is crafted from sterling silver and set with small sparkling marcasites.

The ring is signed "sterling, West Germany".
Vintage Chinese Export Carved Cinnabar Silver and Enamel Brooch: This lovely vintage 1930's Chinese export pin is crafted in 800 silver vermeil (tested) with a beautifully carved cinnabar oval in a floral motif. The cinnabar is framed with twisted border enameled in blue and red. The roll over clasp holds very securely. The brooch measures 1 1/4 by 1" and is signed China.
Vintage Miao China Hmong Torque Sterling Silver Engraved Collar Necklace: Stunning early 20th century Miao China necklace from the Hmong tribe, this piece is crafted from a flat sheet of silver, embellished with detailed engraving in a leaf design, with a central animal with a bushy tail.

Antique Victorian 1891 Sterling Hallmarked Maltese Cross Engraved Brooch: This fabulous antique Victorian sterling brooch was crafted in Birmingham England in 1891. The unusual design features an eight pointed star applied to a Maltese cross, the oval center heavily engraved with ivy leaves, the symbol of wedded bliss. Victorians loved to infuse their jewelry with heavy symbolism, the star a symbol of protection, the arms of the Maltese cross symbolizing temperance, prudence, justice, and fortitude. The brooch is signed B&W for William Brown and Bernard Wheelwright, the company founded in 1857. The brooch is fully hallmarked, in excellent condition, measures 1 3/8 by 1 1/8, and closes with a c-clasp
Fabulous Marcel Boucher Sterling Exotic Bird Brooch: This exotic vintage bird brooch from Marcel Boucher is crafted in gold plated sterling silver and dates from the late 1940s. The bird is crested, his crest set with pave' sparkling rhinestones. His wing is accented with three prong set emerald cut deep purple rhinestones. His dimensional design is quite fabulous! The gold vermeil over the sterling has worn some from age and use, but the brooch still shows extremely well. I have not polished the metal. The brooch is signed sterling with the Phrygian cap of Marcel Boucher. It measures 2 3/8" by 1 1/4". A fabulous figural collectible, and not one easily found!
