Vintage Jewelry

I don't know much about vintage jewelry. I rarely buy it, but love to look at it when at estate sales. These are a few pieces that have caught my eye - I picked them all up at different estate sales.

Enamel and rhinestone brooch - love the pretty colors on this.

This pin is marked Sterling on the back. The art deco style caught my eye. It is made up of little silver beads (?) that kind of look like stones in certain light. Does anyone know what this is called?

Long brooch with faux pearls.

This is my favorite piece.

The cat face slides open to reveal a watch! Love the green rhinestone eyes.

I used a mini pumpkin as my model since I couldn't keep the watch open and snap the photo at the same time.

  8. Great finds! I like them all and would have been more than thrilled to have discovered each piece but my favorite piece is the green brooch. Those colors are very popular. There is so much that you could do with just that one piece. :o)
