New in the Gallery - Cufflinks, Brooches and Stickpins

I hope everyone enjoyed the best of the holiday season and is looking to a prosperous and healthy new year. To get the new year off to a good start, recent additions to the  Antique Jewelry Galleries  include Art Moderne hematite cufflinks, a radiant star brooch by Hans Brassler, and a menacing lion with fiery eyes.
