 GEORGIAN 14k yellow gold beautifully crafted oval pendant with plaited hair one one side, engraved on the back, "To The Memory of My Wife and Child, Arietta S. Jenkins obt. Nov. 25th, 1832, John W. Jenkins, Sept 3rd, 1832". Size is 2-1/2" by 2"  5/8" loop. Both mother and son died of yellow fever and were buried in Chestnut Street Cemetery (Old City Graveyard) in Apalachicola, Florida. 
Captain John Jenkins was an early steamboat captain from New Brunswick, New Jersey, moved to Apalachicola, Florida, piloted an early steamboat and was an investor in a steamboat company. He was the husband of Arietta and father 5-year-old of John W. Jenkins, and had this pendant made in their memory.
"Chestnut Street Cemetery (Old City Graveyard) of early Apalachicola dates prior to 1831. Interred there are some of Apalachicola's founders and molders of her colorful history. Also buried here are many soldiers of the Confederacy and victims of yellow fever and shipwrecks. Seven of the Confederate veterans served with Pickett at Gettysburg in the gallant Florida Brigade."

VICTORIAN 14k yellow gold knot brooch with garnets, hair compartment on back of lower dangle, 1-3/4" by 3". This is a lovely high-relief piece and a very unusual type of hair jewelry. The knot is a symbol for unending love. The top garnet has a very tight and hard-to-see crack, but the stone is secure and it is not detrimental to the overall look of the piece as it is visible only under magnification. The center dangle has a fox tail end, and the overall design is detailed, three-dimensional and elegant. See Bell's "Collecting Victorian Jewelry" page 149.   View   View   View   #V30099


RETRO 1940s gorgeous 14k rose and white gold, diamond and ruby hinged bracelet, 7" around the inside, 1-3/4" wide at the front and 1-1/8" at the back. The 25 natural round European cut diamonds are estimated total weight 1.6 carats, the baguettes are estimated .18 carats. There are 26 natural rubies estimated weight 1.5 carats.

The wide hinged cuff bracelets were a popular design during the retro period, between the mid to late 1930’s through the 1950’s.  These bracelets were often used as a vehicle to “update” earlier jewelry items such as Edwardian and Deco style charm bracelets, rings and pins. This bangle's front element was once an Edwardian ring, mounted sideways on the bracelet to update it to the style of the 1940s.  View   View   View   View   View   #G36272

DIAMOND brilliant solitaire ring set into an elegant 14k white gold four-pronged ring, size 7-3/4 and the diamond is about .85 carats, or about 1/4" across the top. The diamond is non-fluorescent, G-I color, estimated at .88 carats, 6-19 by 6.27 x 3.75 mm. The setting is 14k white gold and it's brand new. The spread table of this diamond indicates it is circa 1960-70s. There is a natural cavity on the diamond under one prong which doesn't detract in any way as it cannot be seen except under magnification. Wonderful brilliant sparkle in this very nice diamond in excellent condition!  View   View   View   View  #K39712 EMERALD Deco pendant necklace with diamonds in a 14 karat white gold setting. It is a natural emerald and the diamonds are single cut. The emerald is about 13 karats and the diamonds are .07 total weight, VS to SI in color and I to J in color. The total weight with the chain is about 6.88 grams. The clasp currently on it is silver plated, but that catch in one of the photos also came with it and it is 14 karat white gold, so I bet it was the original one, and it will be included.  View   View   View   #G39715 DIAMOND, platinum and 18k white and yellow gold bar brooch or scarf pin. The platinum and 18k top is set with diamonds in different cuts with a total weight of .44 carats. The center diamond is an Old European cut, as are some of the other diamonds, and some are rose cuts. The total weight of this piece is about 6.699 grams. This has a curve that would allow a scarf to be run through it, so it could be worn similar to a tie bar. The tube catch like this started being used about 1895 in the US, but this could be a bit later. The diamonds include: 3.0mm = 1.0 EC center .04 ct 1.7 sc II = .04 1.5 rose cut II = .03 1.4 - 1.5 sc x 8 = .04 1.0mm rose cuts x8 =.04 1.3 rose, 1.3 single = .02 0.7-1.5 rose cuts x 6 = .09 est total .44 carat View   View   View     #K39663

ENGLISH enameled pansy 9 carat yellow gold necklace with red enameled flowers with pearl centers set in a heart. This is hallmarked for Sheffield, 375 for 9 ct gold and I think the maker's mark is, "S&R" or "S&B". The date letter is for the 1920s I think, it is very tiny and hard to read, and there are two other marks I cannot see at all. The pendant is 1" by 7/8" and  the chain, marked "375", is 17" long.  View   #Q38218
