  This impressive gold gilt metal, enamel and art glass bracelet and brooch is circa 1920's. The bracelet and brooch were made in Czechoslovakia and is attributed to the Neiger Brothers and both pieces are signed Czechoslovakia. The bracelet and brooch is extremely well made and the bracelet features a multi-chain band with extremely classy clasp repeating the black molded glass with red glass cabs with beautiful filigree detail and a filigree panel accented with white enamel.

   The other end of the bracelet is quite beautiful with the filigree work and enameled flower with the red cabochons. It has a box clasp that is sturdy and has a red cab directly on the part you push in. A catch chain was added for extra support and security. It is signed on the insert side of the clasp, Czechoslovakia. This just shows the exquisite craftsmanship it holds.

   The center of the bracelet is just phenomenal with the same superb detail. The center red cab is high domed and the reds are so rich in color to mimic coral. The black molded glass is finely done and holds such beauty. The filigree work is pieces of art within themselves. It measures approx 7 1/8" long x 1 1/8" wide. The condition is stunning with no damage, chips, cracks, missing enamel, etc. It doesn't show much wear as it has been pulled out of a safe and was held by a collector.

   The brooch is nothing short of just amazing. It holds 4 black molded pieces of glass in each corner with beautiful red cabochons throughout. The center has an enameled flower holding a stunning red cabochon with phenomenal filigree work throughout. This brooch is also signed, Czechoslovakia on the back, underneath the pin backing. The pin back and clasp are in excellent working order. It is approx 2" in length and approx 3" in width. In stunning and amazing condition as though it's been cherished instead of worn. Words cannot express the exquisite beauty of this bracelet and brooch.

   Due to the rarity of this set, I would like to keep them together. This is your true jewelry history! $1200.00

   The Neiger company was started at the beginning of the 20th century in Gablonz. Norbert Neiger ran the company and Max Neiger headed the workshop. The business was successful and expanded after WWI. Their work was of the highest quality and sold well in America and Europe. They did not actually make the stamped components. These were chosen and mounted on the base by their workers - either in the workshop or by home workers. They had many immitators. Unfortunately, they did not survive WWII. Not much of their work was marked. They are known particularly for their Chinese style and Egyptian Revival pieces in the 1920's - often using glass stones to immitate jade and coral. Less is known about their work in the 1930's. The backs of the pieces is important. They were often stronger, as there was more decoration on the front.
 
 
  If you are a true collector of high end vintage costume jewelry, especially Delizza & Elster, AKA Juliana, then this is a must! This is a beautiful semi parure with phenomenal colors of capri blue, teals, emeralds, and German blue heliotrope in the center with layered aurora borealis chatons in the florettes.

   The bracelet is showcased in Ann Pitman's book, Juliana Jewelry Reference Delizza & Elster Identification book on page 39. In stunning condition!

   The earrings and bracelet I am still researching as I am finding these are more rarer pieces.

   Please come into the store to take a peek as I will have them in the case, although as I am researching them, I wouldn't know what to put as far as a price yet.

   You're NOT gonna want to miss these!!!!
 
 
  This baby has been changed a bit and I think is absolutely a stunner! This marvelous piece of history had all diamonds. Where you see the rubies, one was chipped, so my jeweler put in natural, deep red rubies and does she pop!

   She is a beautiful 1950's 14k white gold ring with 3 amazing diamonds holding 1/5th ct total. The center diamond is an excellent near colorless at H-I color and an excellent clarity of VS!!!! YES!! I love VS clarity!!!

   The 2 diamonds on each side of the center are an excellent color of H-I and still an excellent clarity of SI1. Loving this beauty!!!

   The deep red rubies are natural gems in themselves and now let me tell ya...my birthstone is Ruby and I've never seen such pretty rubies and deep in color as these 2 beauties!

   They hold .15 tw and bring life to this lovely vintage ring! She is a nice ring size at a size 8 and can be sized up or down.

   This is a beauty for sure and would make a puuurfect Mother's Day Gift or a give for someone you love or a gift to yourself! Photos just severely don't show her beauty as she is needed to be seen in person. $1489.00

  Now these are history! The Arts & Crafts era of Art Nouveau was filled with free flowing lines and the love for nature. This era was a decorative period style and played a large importance on influence in jewelry designs and provided a form of expression that seemed to be unlimited. All the forces of nature could be captured in the free flowing asymmetrical lines.
 
 
  Amazing and in EXCELLENT condition Oleg Cassini Pastel Mink Jacket from the 1960's. Absolutely in beautiful condition with no deterioration. She has a pocket on each side with 3/4 to almost full sleeves with a nice 5" collar that is stunning!

   She is a size small to medium. On the inside silk lining it has Oleg Cassini written all over in embroidery and a name for the gal who it was made for. I will get more info for that. Doesn't have a fur tag as you can see it was taken out, like it was bothering the neck when worn.

   This isn't just any mink Coat...this is a fur coat DESIGNED BY OLEG CASSINI who gained additional renown by designing for First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. "The Jackie Look" was highly influential in American design. Cassini's designs such as the A-line, sheath and the empire strapless dresses continue to be influential.
