Austrian Faceted Crystal Necklace in “Tiffany” Blue

Powder Blue, “Old Blue Eyes”, Sky Blue, Robin’s Egg Blue, Navy Blue, Cobalt Blue…..these all describe a shade of blue, but there is one color we think that stands out above them all……Tiffany blue color (in those famous blue boxes).  We have found that same delicate color in this Austrian faceted graduated crystal necklace.  Each ball is accented with  silver bead rondelles.   A chance to be the Belle Of The ” Ball” with this necklace.

Ann Klein Golden Vintage Criss Cross Necklace/Choker Set

Rhinestone Easter Egg Basket Pin

It’s been said “never put all your eggs in one basket”, but we think that does not apply here with this delightful Rhinestone basket with a pink Rhinestone bow and 5 delicious colored Easter Eggs—-(yes we know it’s too early for Easter) but we could not resist this small charmer.  The pin measures about 2 x 1.25 inches with a silver tone back.  This will make even the most “hard boiled” person smile !! 🙂

1940’s Aqua & Rhinestone Scroll Brooch

To quote my dear friend Eleanor McMillan, this brooch is an  “Unsigned Piece…Orphan Of  Beauty” Clive’s Unique Jewelry just purchased this 1940’s brooch at a recent flea market.  The brooch has been well worn .  There are scratches to the Vermeil  coating and some of the foil is missing on the back of the aquamarine crystals and there are Rhinestones missing  on the front…..BUT JUST LOOK AT THIS  BROOCH……look at how well it was made.  It has never lost its elegance, its creative design or its collectability . It was probably lying in some drawer in a cigar box all these years.  Just imagine what this brooch has lived through and still survived.  It could be the start of a great collection for you. The brooch measures  3 inches in length and about 2 inches at its widest point.  Clive’s Unique Jewelry rescued this brooch,  now lets find a permanent home for this elegant piece!

J. Crew Rare Vintage Garden Flower Necklace

White pronged Rhinestones and small pink faceted crystals compliment this  J. Crew signed necklace whose main feature are these small and large white metal  and polished gold tone Tulip flowers each with a  sparkling single Rhinestone in the flower’s center.  The smaller Tulips represent buds just beginning to open. We did a little research and found this jewelry style was created by J. Crew in 2014 and quickly sold out.  The quality of the workmanship is terrific.  It’s unique in its design and you can dress it up or wear it casually.  The necklace which is in perfect condition measures about 16 inches with a generous 2 inch extension chain.  It has a lobster claw clasp and a metal signed J. Crew tag.  No need to tip toe thru the Tulips…..make a great statement with these wide awake garden flowers!

Gerda Lynggaard Rare, Important Fashion Necklace

Many, many years ago I was at my Distributor for Gerda Lynggaard jewelry and I  met Lynggaard there  ( I also have her autograph) and I purchased this necklace which she  personally designed.  Over the years on  occasion I would display it at various antique shows. This unsigned necklace consists of a variety of materials, including acrylic beads, faux Pearls, glass bugle beads, gold foil ceramic tubes to name a few all of which are randomly placed. It’s secured by a round brass “planetary” slide clasp with a large faux Pearl.  This bib style necklace measures about 19.5 inches across.  The clasp is about 1.5 inches in diameter.  As far as I am aware. this was a singular design .  I have taken exceptional care with this necklace and it is in excellent condition considering its age. I am the primary owner of this necklace.  This is what Clive’s Unique Jewelry is all about.
