We love these late Victorian 2 color gold coral earrings and the contrast between the yellow gold and rose gold of the three leaf arrangement. Each leaf is topped with a single coral rose. The leaf form is espaliered to a 15K textured gold "frame". The earrings are 1.5 inches long and hang from shepherd's hooks. Please be sure and ask us about the matching brooch to these earrings.

Elegant 15K English fob with a tapered regency style shape and an intaglio of a heraldic coat of arms. The base of the fob is chalcedony, a form of quartz that was available in several colors. The intaglio shows a proud lion in passant and a drape on either side falling from the reeded rod. The drape supports the shield with the heads of three fierce looking dragons or lions. Fantastic heraldic monsters, whether lions or dragons (we are not absolutely sure) were a symbol of courage. This family...

Intricately carved in high relief of lava ( limestone and other rocks from the Mount Vesuvius region) our brooch offers a rare depiction of a Titan subject, the ruler of the Titans, Cronus (Greek) or Saturn (Roman). Cronus, the father of Zeus, was the harvest god and carried a sickle, a tool used in harvesting grain. Cronos is also associated with time (Chronos) and is sometimes depicted with an hourglass, a reminder of the brevity of our time on earth. More typically are cameos depicting the ...

We love this 18K swivel fob with intricate different intaglios on all three sides of the swivel stone, of translucent smokey quartz. One side reveals a sailboat scene, with a sailboat on stormy seas and the motto "Friend" above. Another side shows the head of a bull from the top, it appears. The bull appears to be eyeing a fish hungrily. Above the bull is a strap which reads "Who-oop". The third side of the swivel quartz has a bucking horse and reads "Va Ton Train". All the carvings are wonderf...

Rare, early Victorian pink Paste Cluster Earrings designed to look like clusters of flowers. Pink paste is extremely hard to find and we think very becoming in these cluster earrings. Paste jewelry was designed to emulate real precious gems, in this case, Pink Tourmaline or Pink Topaz. Paste exploded in popularity in the 18th century and was created to emulate real gemstones. The popularity continued in Victorian times, and we know these are Victorian because of their 9K construction. Women love...

Our muff chain is known as "pinchbeck" and has a wonderful hand clasp with a diminutive emerald paste ring on the hand and a charming carved ruffled sleeve at the end of the hand clasp. We love “jewelry wearing jewelry” and the hand clasp with its fingernails and green paste ring can only be described as quintessentially Georgian. The links of the chain are embossed with textural dots. While our Georgian pinchbeck long chain was used in its day to hold one's muff, today one wears it for ...

The rediscovery of the ruins of Pompeii in the mid 18th century revived an immense classical revival with renewed interest in Roman, Greek and Egyptian archeological motifs. There were two Egyptian revivals over the course of the nineteenth century, during which Egyptian classical forms were all the rage throughout Europe and somewhat later in England. Our earrings date from the second revival later in the century. We love these earrings for their classical elements which include concentric c...

The platinum band has engraving.
