Hoping someone can tell me what stone Swank used in these cufflinks. What is the black stone and did they use real gold flakes in their jewelry? Let me know if a better close up photo will help and I'll post one.
Thanks in advance for any insight.
I don't even know if this ring is turquoise, but I am guessing if it is, it is Navajo in construction. The gold overlay is rosy, and it is stamped "sterling" inside and tests as such. Does anyone know anything about this ring, including the hallmarks? I am trying to learn about turquoise, but it hasn't been easy.
Hi all I am these unsigned pieces and just curious if anyone recognizes the artists style? The pieces are metal and move. They are pretty funky. Thanks have a fabulous day.
Hi, I have been putting this ring aside because I do not know what I have.It was passed down to my sister and she does not want it and here it sits. First, the ring never tarnishes. I placed it inside a paper bag for a day to see if it oxidizes and tarnishes - learned this on one of the Ebay boards, and nothing happens. It is not costume and does not have a metal odor, I never tested it. It appears as if the stones are cut steel but I never saw anything have this much sparkle- the photos do not pick this up, It is sparkling. Like diamonds. The inside mark could be Carl Christian Fjerdingstad. I only could find one mark suspiciously similar to the one in this ring and it resembles his mark. Wouldn't it be nice? Here is a photo. Have the time, please tell me what you think. Thank you
