VINTAGE AQUA SPECKLED CABS NECKLACE & BRACELET SET
Price: S$38.00 (US$31.67)


Necklace: 22.5" chain, 60mm pendant
Bracelet: about 7.25" length, 31mm width
Necklace is in good - very good condition, the chain is not original to the pendant and is a slightly different silvertone. 2 small chips to the plating of the settings, one in front near the top and one on the loop attached to the jumpring (which is normal), not obvious at all. Oversized pendant with a faux turquoise cabochon (has golden flecks), glue has turned yellow. This set came to me together but they are not a direct match with the settings design. The colour (whitetone plating) and cabochons match perfectly though. Bracelet is in good condition, the back of the plating has worn off some, on the edges, and clasp closure, revealing a greyish base. The foldover clasp has worn off the underside to reveal a brass base. The settings have little florals, bracelet weighs heavy from all the metal. Late 1960s-70s.

Earrings: 26 x 24mm
Good condition with aging, on the metalwork turning dark and rhinestones turning dull. The chain is now an ox-brass colour. There are some normal chips on the enamel white metal from wear, revealing the brass base, though all petals are intact. Slight wear on the gold-plating on the pendant's and earrings back. The center white cabochon is made of glass, with a moonglow effect. Earrings are screw-back clips. Foldover clasp. 1950s.

Price: S$30.00 (US$25.00)



Necklace: 16.5" length, 25mm width
Earrings: 32 x 20mm
Necklace is in fine condition, lots of aging on the metal. The square pieces have chipped off on a few parts on the backs because of slight rusting at the edges, also aging. Fronts are alright. The brass chain has aged to a deep patina, some uneven tone because it originally had green verdigris and I removed it so these parts appear a reddish-brown. The clip earrings are in fine-good condition, one of the iridescent arrows has a chip on the coat at the tips. The clips have small spots of verdigris each. 1950s.

The hinged bangle is in good - very good condition with aging on the polished surface, shows up as dulling. The bangle does not shut exactly center to center due to the end of the faux pearls jutting out and preventing it so. It closes securely still. 1960s-70s.

VINTAGE SILVERY GREEN LEAF BROOCH & EARRINGS DEMI SET
Price: S$20.00 (US$16.67)


Brooch: 60 x 45mm
Earrings: 23 x 22mm
Earrings marked 'PAT.156452'. Fine condition on the earrings, normal aging and the gold-plating has worn off to reveal silvertone base on the clips. The edges of the design (the polished areas) appears to be silvertone on purpose however, or it could be that the gold-plating has worn off? The front has a painted pearlscent green to silver gradient which fades off to the gold-plating. The brooch is also in fine-good condition with some wear on the bottom of the back of the brooch. On one of the leaves in front (fourth from the left top), there is a ding on the surface, this could be a manufacturing defect or damage from storage. The swivel clasp is a little looser than normal so I will include a rubber clutch to prevent the pin from getting lost. Brooch weighs on the heavy side. 1950s.
