Unusual Sets 


 

 


Wonderful and unusual vintage costume jewelry sets, both signed and unsigned
Many who are interested in vintage jewelry enjoy assembling sets (parures) of things they love, and even more when finding pieces they never knew existed. One of the many things I love about my job is that there are so many new pieces to see and things to learn about and see almost every single day!

Some sets took years to assemble, and learning along the way made it such an adventure. Miriam Haskell sets designed by Frank Hess, for instance, often include the original hand painted advertising art work illustrating them, and they can be even more scarce than the jewelry itself. Victorian sets sometimes come with the charming turtle-shaped boxes from that era, a lovely way to display those antique pieces. And original illustrations of De Rosa jewelry have allowed me to identify some of the unsigned DeRosa creations. Vintage catalogues are a real delight, and many of them are 500-700 pages long with illustrations of jewelry from long ago.

Our available sets of jewelry can be purchased HERE where you can enjoy adding some to your own collection.

When I first got this I thought it has the earmarks of a Schreiner, but looking again at both the bracelet and earrings backs, I am not so sure. So for now it is just a lovely unsigned set.  View   View   View   #S29701

 

 
 POT METAL necklace and earrings set with lovely rainbow-like colors of rhinestones, baguettes and pressed glass flowers, circa 1930. The colors include baguettes of red, rose, purple, topaz, blue and green and the glass florets are red, blue, purple and black. The necklace is 17-1/2" by 1/3" with a front element that is 1-1/4" by 1-1/8". The drop earrings for pierced ears are 3" from the hook top to the earring bottom. While some of the tiny clear rhinestones are graying a bit, the overall look is brilliant, as is the pot metal setting. In all the years I have been handling vintage jewelry, this is the first set of it's kind I have ever seen!  View   View    View   View   View   View   View   #Q39457 PEACOCK EYE Arts & Crafts parure set in textured silver with colorful glass peacock eye cabochons and dangly earrings with clip backs. It is not often you find an entire matching group like this one. Peacock eyes are made of crystal or glass over a silver foil, and according to Ginger Moro, some were made in Gablonz, Bohemia (Germany). The necklace is 17-1/2" and each leaf is 1-3/4"; the bracelet is 7" by 1"; the smaller earrings are 1" long, and the dangling clip back earrings 2-5/8" top to bottom. It has the older tube style closure on the necklace and it is all in excellent condition. I am not an expert on this style, but I think it is from the Amsterdam School of design and circa 1930s.  View   View   View   View  View   View   View   #Q38623

   BAS STERLING German rococo style set with pendant, pin, ring and bracelet. "BAS" is ""Blachian Antik Schmuck" of Munich, Germany.

SUNFLOWERS necklace and earrings in antique gold tone with lush yellow and blue rhinestones, necklace 18" by 1-7/8", earrings 1-1/3". While this looks very much like a Hollycraft from the front, I confirmed that it is not made by that company.

  GUM DROP necklace and brooch set with glass red, blue and green balls and gold tone leaves in a necklace and brooch set, circa 1940, necklace 16" length and 1-1/2" front drop, brooch 3-1/2". While this has some elements of an early Hess Haskell, I cannot prove it with either an ad or art work, so I am not making that attribution. I am selling it as a just lovely set circa 1940s and while delicate, it is in excellent condition. A Miriam Haskell Larry Austin advertisement for a similar set can be seen in Deanna Cera's book, "Costume Jewellery" 1997 edition on page 10.    #Q33784

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.
