FAMILY JEWELRY
a LEGACY of LOVE

 

This is my maternal grandmother, Agnes Jeanette King Negley. I knew her only from family stories... she was born in Kentucky in 1891 and died in 1930 when my own Mother was only eight years old. Her box of jewelry was passed on to me and enchanted me completely and permanently with jewelry. Her jewelry was from the early 1900's. Notice the wonderful lavaliere she is wearing. 

   Her cameo, lavalieres and seed pearl star brooch  are shown below. As a young girl, she received the tiny gold ring with a gypsy set diamond (shown at right). It is engraved on the inside with her initials "AJK" and I have worn it most of my life.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
