Simply put, mechanical jewelry is jewelry that moves. In some cases, flower petals are hinged so that they open. In some cases, tiny springs allow parts to tremble, such as the wings on a bird brooch. In all cases it is wonderful and innovative jewelry.

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.
