CIRCA 1910 MISSISSIPPI PEARL PENDANT 10K
Antique estate jewelry, the delicate filigree appearance is the
influence of the Edwardian age. The 10 K pendant is set
with two natural (not cultured) pearls, a tiny baroque one near
the top and a "tooth" shape dangle from the bottom. The particular
shapes were common to the Mississippi Pearls during the period
when they were available, before polution destroyed the small
pearling industry. The pink stone is
a sapphire. The pendant is 1 1/2 inches long and is
suspended from a 10K yellow gold 14 inch chain, excellent
AKOYA CULTURED PEARL NECKLACE

Japanese cultured pearls. They are well matched in color & size
and are free of blemishes and spot Altogether very nice, hand
knotted at 24 inches and finished with a 14K yellow gold fish hook
clasp. Vintage estate jewelry in like new excellent

EDWARDIAN FILIGREE PIN/PENDANT
A stunning piece of jewelry from yesteryear, circa 1910. The
BROOCH can be worn as a pendant, if desired. Brooch measures
about 1 1/4 inches across and 1 3/4 inches long. Hand made platinum
filigree of the highest quality, the edges of each knife-edge filigree
piece have a mil grain finish. Twenty diamonds with an
estimated total weight of 2.00 to 2.20 carats, including three that are
approximately 1/4 carat each and the drop at 0.30 ct. The remaining
diamonds range from .03 to 0.12 carats each. Suspended from a
14K white gold 16 inch chain. Estimated retail replacement
value is $4400 +.
VICTORIAN BIRD BROOCH, 14K YELLOW GOLD
Hand made brooch features three colors of karat gold, much of it
textured "diamond cut". The flowers, leaves, seashell & bird are
individually made and mounted on an open framework. Set with
tiny turquoise cabachons and three perhaps natural or perhaps
cultured baroque pearls. The bird is usually silver and in this case
appears to be silver with a partial gold wash. Sparklz can't
find the reference she used when she had a pair of earrings like this
brooch, but the recollection is that this is traditional "Jewelry of the
People" made in a remote Mexican village and has been made for generations
in exactly the same way, so it is difficult to actually date. The
clasp is a curlique c-style, which would indicate that
this probably dates to the first third of the 1900s.
Further research may elicit more information. Sparklz is
looking through her library for the original information. In the
meantime apparently similar pieces can be seen in David & Pack
"Mexican Jewelry". The dangles hang correctly, they just look askew
as the picture was made on a scanner. In excellent condition,
except for a missing floret near the bird's beak. Antique estate
jewelry, the BROOCH is about 2 3/4 inches. Estimated
replacement value $2200-$3500.
SWEETEST EDWARDIAN STYLE PENDANT
A delicacy of design, probably from about 1920, the 1 1/2 inch pendant

diamond and three 0.015 diamonds. There is a tiny cultured pearl at
the top, one in the opening of the center and an even tinier one dangles
from the bottom. Originally an earring, it has made a darling
conversion to a pendant, suspended on an 18 inch 14K white gold
chain. Vintage estate jewelry in excellent
condition. Estimated retail replacement value $375-$400.
JADEITE BANGLE BRACELET

sailor. By Forstner, marked 14K. Vintage gold estate
