Continuing on with the long unloved silver box...there was a time when I was so happy to again have the money to spend on any jewelry. These pieces brought me so much happiness.

Very pretty! I love that checkerboard cut.

For today:
An antique rolled gold bangle, a 10k signet ring, a 1930s diamond ring (about .25)
And my necklace made from Georgian pocket watch parts. I found this at an estate sale for $4. I had no idea what it was, except that I loved it. After researching, I found out that these are cocks from Georgian fusee pocket watches. In the closeup, the oval face may be George III.

This is NOT my watch, but I'm including this photo to show how these pieces appear in the watch.

Today my mother was looking for something in an old box of copper jewelry. This ring caught my eye immediately because it was gold.

My mother told me that it was my dad's wedding ring and she had no idea how it got there. Coincidentally, he passed away two years ago this past week and he would have turned 92 this week.

I never saw my dad wear nor thought he owned any jewelry. So I am thrilled to have something of his to wear.

Cat hair included for no extra charge. :)

These OMCs are fabulous!
The sapphires especially intrigue me! You've shown them before, and I drool every time!

Thank you @stracci2000! They were an impulse buy for sure. Like I needed more antique earrings haha. In fact we saw them in the Spring of 2019, I drooled, balked at the cost and told Greg no I cannot do it. We left and we were not even home yet (2.5 hour trip away from my favorite antique jewelry shop) and I called them from the car and said I need them :lol:. So they wrapped them up and shipped them to me and I got them the next week (it was a Friday I believe). Anyway I don't regret it for a moment. They are gorgeous IRL with beautiful detail I cannot pick up in photos.

So ive had this for years (says the girl who says she isnt into hearts)
Its a South African stone i forget the name of
At some stage ive changed the clasp to a magnetic one (which came undone when i took my shirt off for a shower)
Anyway one day id like to have it on a gold bale on a string of white pearls with a couple of matching beads on either side
20211123_111225.jpg i had a matching brass (or copper?) braclete inlaid in the same stone but the stone got broken and chipped

The dury is now out on magnetic catches ???
