This is my maternal grandmother, Agnes Jeanette King Negley. I knew her only from family stories... she was born in Kentucky in the late Victorian era in 1891 and died in 1930 when my own Mother was only eight years old. Her box of Victorian and Edwardian jewelry was passed on to me and enchanted me completely and permanently with jewelry. Notice the wonderful lavaliere she is wearing. Her lavalieres and ring are shown here. As a young girl, she received the tiny gold ring with a gypsy set diamond (shown at left). 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 and research 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.
