Vintage Hobé Silver-Tone and Rhinestone Bracelet and Earrings

Just look at this absolutely gorgeous vintage Hobé silver-tone and rhinestone bracelet and earrings!! The 7.5 inch long bracelet is made up of six half-moon sections. Each section is comprised of seven silver-tone ribbon like loops connecting to a teardrop shaped loop of small 1/8 inch rhinestones which surround a stunning 3/8 inch large rhinestone in the center of each section. There are a total of 82 small rhinestones and six large. The clip earrings echo the bracelet sections with the addition of four silver-tone ribbon-like loops making them shaped more like a shield than a half-moon with a total of 13 small and one large stunning rhinestone in each earring. This vintage Hobé set is really gorgeous, simply wonderful and in excellent condition. You would never know it is nearly 70 years old.

Vintage Trio 1960’s Black White Orange Enamel Flower Brooches One by Crown Trifari

I couldn’t stand to separate this trio of brooches just because they look so awesome together. The black one, I’m calling a daisy, has multiple petals with a gold-tone crown-like stamen and is signed Trifari© with the crown emblem above the T. The white one is definitely a gardenia with gold tipped petals and is unsigned. The fabulous orange one has ten petals with a gold-tone button center and is unsigned as well. Each pin is approximately 2.5 inches in diameter. I have priced the group together but will sell them individually if you want just one.  If sold individually, the black Trifari would be $275 and the white and orange unsigned ones would be $125 each. This trio of gorgeous flowers would look wonderful grouped together on a jacket and when not being worn would look incredible framed and hanging on the wall!!

Vintage 1970s Brass Coil Choker Necklace and Cuff Bracelet

We are absolutely in love with these pieces of circa 1970s jewelry. They are very tribal looking with their brass patinated finish and chunky graduated coils and little ball tips. The choker has a 5.25-inch diameter, but its spring-like coils allow it to spring open to accommodate a larger neck as well. The diameter of the coil graduates from .25 inch at either end to .75 inch in the center.  The bracelet is 3.5 inches in diameter and fits me more like a bangle than tight like a cuff. It also springs open to easily slip onto your wrist and to accommodate a larger wrist as well. The diameter of the coil for the bracelet is the same .25 inch at either end and graduates to .5 inch in the center. This stunning set should be yours!

Vintage YSL Yves Saint Laurent Lucite and Metal Chunky Link Necklace

Just look at this oh so wonderful haute couture (Yves Saint Laurent) chunky link necklace or belt! This incredible vintage piece is composed of one inch diameter circles of penalized pewter colored Lucite links which are connected by gun-metal grey toned metal double hooks. The final double hook is opened slightly to fasten into the final plastic ring as a virtually invisible closure. The iconic YSL hang tag is in place on that link as well. This is quite the handsome piece of jewelry. I don’t think I can describe how beautiful the color or how versatile it is.

Vintage Gem-Craft Bejeweled Starfish Bib Necklace, Signed CRAFT ©

This vintage bib style necklace consisting of eight wonderful bejeweled starfish hanging from a gold-tone double link chain and signed craft was made by the gem-craft corp we believe circa 1990. It is simply stunning! The three main starfish measure 1.75 inches and are adorned in the centre by 1/2 inch faceted topaz colored rhinestones which are surrounded by five bezel set amethyst colored cobochon 1/8 inch rhinestones. Five smaller 1-1/8 inch starfish with the same bezel set amethyst colored cobochon rhinestones in the centre of each starfish, adorn this necklace. Each large starfish is signed Craft © on the reverse side. The starfish themselves are a work of art. Each is made of a white enameled metal which is textured identical to a real starfish (I’d swear they used a real starfish for the mold.) and then the front is coated with clear amber-colored enamel. Just incredible! The necklace circumference is 16 inches and its hanging length is 7 inches with the bib length drop being almost 3 inches..

Gem-Craft Corp. was founded by Gene Verri and his son, Ron. Gene was a former designer with Coro during the 1960’s but left to start his own company. He designed jewelry for designers such as Oscar De La Renta and Kenneth Jay Lane and his designs were sold by iconic stores like I. Magnin in Beverly Hills. He worked at the bench until his death at age 101 on December 30, 2013.

This piece is sure to gain you lots of complements. Make it yours!

Striking and impossible to miss!

Unless, that is, you call it yours.

Art Deco Turquoise Guilloche & Sterling Chatelaine Tiny Ring Compact with Hand Painted Flower Design

Perfect for primping! This somewhat ball-shaped guilloche enamel and sterling chatelaine style dance ring compact is turquoise or sea green and sterling with hand painted tiny flowers. It opens to reveal a place for powder or rouge and a tiny mirror. It is marked inside “sterling” and WB inside a diamond-shaped box. After much research we have been unable to determine maker. This is an exceptionally pretty little ring compact and in wonderful condition. We have not cleaned or polished the silver. We will leave that up to the end owner as I know there are those out there who prefer the patinated silver as opposed to the polished silver. This sweet compact measures only 1.5 inches in diameter and 7/8 inches high. The chain length to the ring is 3 inches and the ring itself has a 7/8 inch diameter so approximately a size 12 ring size which is meant to go on the middle finger. This would make a lovely “something old” gift for a bride, an awesome “sweet 16” gift, or for many other wonderful keepsake gifting opportunities.

Vintage Christian Dior Leather Belt w/Gold-Tone Sultan in Turban & Rams Head Dangle Buckle

This is such an incredible Christian Dior belt! The belt itself is beautiful white 2 1/2 inch wide leather which is self-lined in white leather with the gold Christian Dior signature and 1412 stamped on the inside. The belt is adjustable with the largest adjustment being 30 inches. Then, there is the buckle. Oh! The buckle. It is grand! Made up of a gold-tone rectangle with rope edging and a textured back with a moustached Sultan in a turban with an earring mounted in the center. Then there is a gold-tone ram’s head with the body of a serpent (or fish) mounted on a heavy solid chain circle which is then attached to the bottom of the rectangle as a dangling ornament. The rectangle is 2 inches by 3 inches and the ram circle is 2 inches in diameter. The overall height of the buckle with the dangle is 5.5 inches. I have seen two other buckles similar and they both had rhinestones. I do see mounting places where rhinestones could be on this buckle but no glue residue; so, in my opinion, I do not believe this particular rendition of the buckle ever had rhinestones. It looks natural not to have them. And, again, in my opinion, much better without! I also believe it to be from the 1960-70’s. This Christian Dior belt is in wonderful vintage condition. The leather shows some wear as would be expected but the buckle is in perfect shape. This outstanding vintage find should be yours!
