Nov. 25th, 1832, John W. Jenkins, Sept 3rd, 1832". Size is 2-1/2" by 2"

John W. Jenkins, and had this pendant made in

VICTORIAN
14k yellow gold knot brooch with garnets, hair
compartment on back of lower dangle, 1-3/4" by 3". This is a lovely
high-relief piece and a very unusual type of hair jewelry. The knot is a
symbol for unending love. The top garnet has a very tight and hard-to-see
crack, but the stone is secure and it is not detrimental to the overall look
of the piece as it is visible only under magnification. The center dangle
has a fox tail end, and the overall design is detailed, three-dimensional
and elegant. See Bell’s "Collecting Victorian Jewelry" page 149.

RETRO 1940s gorgeous 14k rose
and white gold, diamond and ruby hinged bracelet, 7" around the inside,
1-3/4" wide at the front and 1-1/8" at the back. The 25 natural round
European cut diamonds are estimated total weight 1.6 carats, the
baguettes are estimated .18 carats. There are 26 natural rubies
estimated weight 1.5 carats.

The wide hinged cuff
bracelets were a popular design during the retro period, between the mid
to late 1930s through the 1950s. These bracelets were often used as a
vehicle to update earlier jewelry items such as Edwardian and Deco
style charm bracelets, rings and pins. This bangle’s front element was
once an Edwardian ring, mounted sideways on the bracelet to update it to
the style of the 1940s.

DIAMOND
brilliant solitaire
ring set into an elegant 14k white gold four-pronged ring, size 7-3/4 and the diamond is
about .85 carats, or about 1/4" across the top. The diamond is
non-fluorescent, G-I color, estimated at .88 carats, 6-19 by 6.27 x 3.75 mm. The
setting is 14k white gold and it’s brand new. The spread table of this
diamond indicates it is circa 1960-70s. There is a natural cavity on the
diamond under one prong which doesn’t detract in any way as it cannot be
seen except under magnification. Wonderful
brilliant sparkle in this very nice diamond in excellent condition!

gold setting. It is a natural emerald and the diamonds are single cut. The

in color and I to J in color. The total weight with the chain is about 6.88
grams. The clasp currently on it is silver plated, but that catch in
one of the photos also came with it and it is 14 karat white gold, so I bet
it was the original one, and it will be included.

DIAMOND
, platinum and 18k white and yellow gold bar brooch or scarf pin.
The platinum and 18k top is set with diamonds in different cuts with a total
weight of .44 carats. The center diamond is an Old European cut, as are some
of the other diamonds, and some are rose cuts. The total weight of this
piece is about 6.699 grams. This has a curve that would allow a scarf to be
run through it, so it could be worn similar to a tie bar. The tube catch
like this started being used about 1895 in the US, but this could be a bit
later. The diamonds include: 3.0mm = 1.0 EC center .04 ct 1.7 sc II = .04
