Vintage Panetta "Real Look" Rhinestone Bracelet: Founded in 1945, Panettta was know for the quality of their jewelry and their "real look" designs. This gorgeous vintage bracelet features the milgrain edging used in high end fine jewelry and hand pave'd (bead set) rhinestones in a classic deco style design. Panetta advertised their "Real Look" jewelry, and it certainly could fool the eye! The rhodium plating is as beautiful as the day it was made. The open work design and connecting baguettes add even more interest to a beautiful piece! There is still plenty of sparkle in the tiny rhinestones. The bracelet measures 7" long by 3/8" wide and is signed Panetta.
Vintage 1941 Unsigned Rice-Weiner Water Carrier Brooch: This wonderful figural Chinese water carrier brooch was designed by L.C. Mark for Rice-Weiner, with a patent date of Sept. 16, 1941, patent number 129,573. There were several design versions of this brooch, and this one is quite nice! The large figural has a red enamel shirt and rhinestone studded shorts. The rhinestones were mostly missing when I received him, the few left a disaster, so I replaced all of his rhinestones with clear, the original color. Two different size Venetian "wedding cake" beads are suspended from his pole. His plating is in wonderful shape, with slight wear to his nose and a spot on his cheek. He is a very nice size at 3 by 2 3/4", and is unsigned, but verified by design and patent.

Vintage Unsigned Regency Saphiret Clip Earrings: These stunning saphiret earrings from Regency feature antique gold tone metal set with large teardrops of hard to find saphiret glass stones accented with two shades of light topaz rhinestones and baby blue rhinestones. The saphiret stones flash from blue to mauve and are set in a multi prong mounting . These earrings are from a well known Regency set, the earrings unsigned. They measure 1 1/8 by 1". There is light age spotting on the back of the saphiret stones, but they still show beautifully.
Rare Nettie Rosenstein Knight Chess Piece Heraldic Brooch: This extremely hard to find brooch from Nettie Rosenstein features a chess piece, the knight, embellished with heraldic flags and a stylized fleur-de-lis. The horse head has a flowing mane down his neck. Amazingly, the design is the same on the back as on the front, a detail you rarely see in other makers. But then she was known for her great attention to detail. The back is signed Nettie Rosenstein. The brooch is gold plated and in immaculate condition. It measures 1 1/2 by 1".

Large MJ ENT Blue and Teal Rhinestone Five Pointed Star Brooch: This sparkling brooch from MJ Ent (MJ Enterprises) featuresa large gold stone star, adorned with navette and chaton rhinestones in shades of blues and teal. Trying to get an accurate color on this piece has been difficult, as I can't get the teal to show. The navette rhinestones are sapphire blue, the small chatons a light blue. The larger chatons that outline the brooch are a true rich teal with green undertone, a gorgeous hard to find color. The center of the brooch rises to a shallow dome. The brooch has a nice size, measuring 2 5/8" and is in mint condition. It is signed MJENT(c)
Vintage Emmons Maltese Cross Brooch Hyacinth Peridot Rhinestones: This glorious vintage Maltese cross brooch from Emmons is in my opinion one of the most gorgeous pieces produced by the company. The Maltese cross is designed in layers, with the geometric back arms overlaid with a scrolled design. The rhinestones are absolutely brilliant, glowing hyacinth navettes and sparkling deep peridot just pop in the antique gold tone setting. The brooch has some heft, as it is cast in two layers. The brooch is in mint condition and measures 2 1/4". It is signed Emmons(c) and can be found in many vintage jewelry books.
