Recent Additions

July is traditionally a quiet month in the jewelry trade. But, despite taking time to hike in the mountains with the beagle and watching the Tour de France, I have added several pairs of cufflinks, stickpins and brooches to the Antique Cufflink and Antique and Estate Jewelry Galleries.

Antique Cufflinks

Recent additions to the Antique Cufflink Gallery include two beautiful enamel pairs - one British and one created by the quintessential American jewelry maker, Krementz & Company.

Elegant blue guilloche enamel cufflinks. (J9072)

Regal Blue Elegant cufflinks with regal blue enamels and striking Art Deco borders crafted in white gold. Engraved radiant starbursts are highlighted by the translucent enamel. Created by Krementz & Company in 14kt gold, circa 1925.

British blue enamel cufflinks. (J9029)

Blue and Gold Elegant British cufflinks with engraved gold centers of rippling lines surrounded by beautiful blue enamel borders. Crafted in 9kt gold, circa 1925.

These and other fine antique cufflinks can be found
in the Antique Cufflink Gallery.

Antique and Estate Jewelry

Recent additions to the Antique and Estate Jewelry Gallery include two striking brooches and two equally beautiful stickpins.

Serpent and Acanthus A fierce lion-headed serpent with a tail of flame-like acanthus leaves warily guards this brooch with a jealous green eye. A glowing pearl is set in the center. Created in 14kt gold, circa 1890.
