Vintage Sterling Silver Genuine Cats Eye Ring: This gorgeous vintage sterling silver ring features a large oval high dome cabochon natural cats eye gemstone in a rich honey color.

The stone is seated in a secure, multi prong setting. PLEASE NOTE: this is a small ring, perfect for a pinky finger or a young ladys first special ring. It could also be sized up a bit by your jeweler. It is a size 4 1/2.

Antique Edwardian Sterling Queen Conch Cameo Ring with Poppy Pods: This wonderful Edwardian ring is crafted in sterling silver with a motif of poppy pods running up both sides. The cameo is carved from queen conch shell, hence its light pink color. Her hair is up swept and her gown leaves a shoulder bare. This is a small ring, for a pinky finger only, but could be sized up slightly, although I would not advise it. The cameo measures 7/8 by 5/8" and the ring is signed STERLING.

Mazer Sterling Art Glass Belly and Rhinestone Leaping Frog Brooch: This enchanting and incredibly lifelike 1940's frog brooch attributed to Joseph Mazer is crafted in sterling silver and set with a large art glass cabochon center. This version of the frog has rhinestones set in his legs and head. Most of the rhinestones were missing or dead so I have replaced them and returned him to his glory days! He has high dome ruby glass eyes which appear to glow. The frog is shown in Brunialti's "A Tribute to America" on page 136. His condition is excellent. A true American costume jewelry treasure!

Vintage Henkel & Grosse Massive Sterling Silver Bracelet: Purchased in the Christian Dior shop in Frankfurt Germany in the 1970's, this massive and quite hard to find bracelet was created by Henkel & Grosse in heavy sterling silver. The collaboration between Henkel & Grosse and Christian Dior was well known. Although they made jewelry for Dior, the shop also carried Henkel & Grosse jewelry. The hinged, oval bangle has a heavy secure push in clasp with safety. The top of the bracelet has a gold plated center bar with heavy open silver sides. The back of the bracelet is a substantial heavy curb link. The bracelet weighs 72.96 grams, or 2.57 oz. The oval design makes this a very comfortable piece to wear. These pieces are a rare find, I acquired this from the original purchaser. The bracelet is signed with the crown over the "G" mark, the copyright mark and 925.

Huge Vintage Waterfall Rhinestone Panetta Sterling Ring: This huge and impressive vintage sterling silver ring from Panetta features a tiered cascade of sparkling clear rhinestones in a high gallery setting. Each stone is individually prong set. The stones are clear and bright with plenty of sparkle. The silver setting is a high gallery design, the ring sits 5/8" above your finger and measures 1 1/8" in length. The ring is a size 7 3/4. I think this ring has been previously sized as there is a groove on the inside you can see on the shank. The integrity of the ring is in no way compromised. The finish is as bright as the day it was made. This is a large ring with a high profile, not for those who prefer delicate jewelry! It is signed Panetta sterling.

Antique Victorian Scottish Agate Sterling Buckle Brooch: This enchanting brooch hails from the mid to late 1800's when Queen Victoria became enamored with all things Scottish, especially the "pebble" jewelry. The brooch is sterling silver ( unmarked and tested) and set with banded agate and jasper in an engraved silver setting. It is embellished with a silver buckle ( garter) on the left side. If you look bottom right on the brooch, you can see what appears to be a separated stone..but the edges are smooth, and the stones are secure, so I have no idea if it was originally this way. The brooch has a tube hinge and open c-clasp and has no makers marks. It measures 1 1/2 by 1 1/4".
