Recent Additions

I hope everyone is enjoying the best of the Holiday season and anticipating an even better New Year!

New additions to the Antique Cufflink Gallery and the Estate Jewelry Gallery have slowed as we deal with the annual holiday rush. We have managed to add a pair of striking Art Deco cufflinks by United Jewelers, a Bacchus stickpin from Hans Brassler and a wonderful Victorian swallow brooch.

Jazzy Art Deco cufflinks. (J9100)

Art Deco Pizazz  Jazzy Art Deco cufflinks with bright concentric-circle centers surrounded by a yellow gold band of wave-like scrolls and white gold borders.  Crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1930.

Brassler Bacchus and Amethyst stickpin. (J9098)

Bacchus  A rich purple amethyst is framed by two images of Bacchus, the God of Wine.  Since the ancient Greeks believed amethyst protected the wearer from intoxication, this is the perfect jewel for a fun loving oenophile.  Crafted in 14kt gold circa 1910.

Riker Bros. swallow brooch. (J9097)

Fly Away!  A wonderful brooch of a swallow in flight.  Among the Victorians swallows were a symbol of a traveler returning safely home.  Created by Riker Bros. in 14kt gold, circa 1900.
