Estate Collection

After collecting estate jewelry for years, I am finally putting my collection in the store. These are 2 examples of pieces I have found: The locket is an Art Nouveau piece from 1910. It is 14k rose gold on a diamond cut 14k rose gold chain (to add a bit of flair!) The second piece is a pair of earrings I made from reclaimed Victorian friendship bracelet tags which were hand engraved with the recipient's name on the front and the friend on the reverse. They are made of sterling, with 18k earwires and a black spinel drop.
