ART DECO JADEITE AND ENAMEL NECKLACE, CIRCA 1920-30

Superb NECKLACE in truly excellent condition.  The 40mm x 20 mm rectangular pendant is a pleasant, evenly color green jadeite, carved and pierced in floral design with a very Deco style 14K bail attaching to a 17 mm round carved and pierced Jadeite, prong set on a 14K yellow gold frame. The Deco checkerboard side pieces are glass enamel on gold.  The chain is 14K yellow gold spaced with 5 mm jadeite beads on each side.  The jade is natural and undyed.  Original clasp apparently abandoned in favor of an easier to manipulate hook and eye, silver tone base metal.   Total length is 18 inches; the medallion and pendant fall 2 1/2 inches from the chain attachments.  An appraisal dated April 1987 indicates a retail appraisal at that time of $1675.    (Good gosh, $1675 adjusted for inflation is a shocking $3439.)  Appraisal criteria has adjusted since then, and Sparklz estimates current replacement value at  $2400 +.

UNUSUAL SHELL CAMEO PENDANT NECKLACE

Handcarved in layered shell, the figural style indicates it is probably circa 1920s.  The Gold Filled frame is unusual and gives the piece a gentle importance.  The pendant, including bail, measures 2 inches and is suspended from a 19 inch gold filled chain.  Very nice piece will last many more years.  Vintage costume jewelry in excellent condition.

REDUCED!! 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.

GARNET COLOR PENDANT NECKLACE, CIRCA 1920

A real beauty, the pendant is plated in rich "Russian" gold tone and bezel set with six faceted faux, simulated garnets, with three faceted beads dangling below.  The fancy 18 inch neck chain is a succession of elongated, faceted beads and round faceted beads.  Many of the end caps on the beads have lost a portion of their plating and are showing the underlying base metal as is the wire work.  One line in the filigree, just the edge at the 5:00 position appears to be a break but is actually an incompletion in the original stamping.  Vintage costume jewelry, Circa approx. 1920, still  very desirable.
