I've looked and looked but can't quite narrow down what type of stones these are in these earrings. I've looked at pink but they're not quite pink and not quite coral. Thank you for any input and help
Happy Birthday America!!!!
I am having a tough time trying to find out what these beautiful glass beads and grey stones are called.
The glass beads have lovely colors running through them and one of the boardies on another board thought that they were covered with frit... the colors in the glass beads seem to be floating in them. This is a crazy way of describing this necklace and earrings... It has be stumped...
They are cold, not heavy and smooth (except for the crevices) to the touch ~ even though they look rough.
One of the boardies said they were listed on page 45 of Costume Jewelry 303, but they are not. I cant seem to find anything on them anywhere. The beads are strung on old thread.
Thank you for any and all help.
Happy 4th of July!!!!!
I recently bought these cuff links. They were advertised as being antique, either of British or Irish origin, with ruby eyes.
I'm trying to figure out if they're original, if they're actually a match, where they're from, and how old they are.
The main thing I'm wondering about is that the two cuff links are slightly different. First, they're a slightly different tint of gold (you can see the one on the right is a slightly more yellowy gold). The bars on the back are also slightly different (one joins smoothly while the other one overlaps). And then most notable of all--one of them has hallmarks on the forehead between the ears while the other one has them on the oval back of the cufflink. The marks appear to be the same but I can't figure out why they would have been placed differently.
As for the marks, what I've been able to figure out is that the first one is "O.C" (maybe the maker's mark?). Second one I can't figure out. Third one appears to be the date letter and looks like an "O" although I can't tell if it's a big or little one. Also I could be wrong because it looks like the top of the circle isn't closed. The last two marks are a 9 and 375 which are the purity marks.
Anyone have any idea who O.C might be or what the second mark says? Also any idea about the year mark?
