Estate Jewelry

Just the name conjures up images of elderly ladies in Chanel suits and red lipstick, dripping in gold. I used to love the jangle of my grandmother’s gold bangle bracelets, which I inherited and cherish. I love jewelry of all kinds, so here you’ll find investment pieces as well as fun costume pieces. It’s lovely when jewelry has meaning, but there’s nothing wrong with buying a little something for yourself now and then and creating its meaning.

60s Silver Indian Bib Necklace – Gorgeous Multicolored Agate Stones

This dramatic piece was likely made in India in the 60s or 70s…possibly earlier. The stones are agate. The silver content is unknown…there are no hallmarks. It is very large and has quite a lot of impact when worn. The triangle part measures 8″x7″x7″ and the neck opening measures 17″ but could be worn smaller, or chain could easily be added to make it longer. Older ethnic pieces are difficult to find, especially Indian pieces where they do not believe in passing down jewelry after someone dies…they bury them with it or melt it down. Beautiful piece in excellent condition!

20s/30s Gold Filigree Dress Clips

Dress clips are my favorite type vintage jewelry. First of all, no one wears them anymore (although I don’t know why…they are so versatile and practical.) They are a great way of showing off a sexy neckline, holding a bras strap in place, dressing up an otherwise plain top (try them on a t-shirt!) These are a rich gold with a floral motif. Measure 1-78″ x 1″. Excellent condition.

Price:$65.00
