The art of reference books and costume jewelry collecting has just been raised to an even higher level than ever before.  Eleanore Sue McMillan has published three huge definitive books on costume jewelry.   Volume I : Icons Of Costume Jewelry, Volume II: Costume & Fashion Vintage Jewelry and Volume III: Costume Fashion Jewelry Unsigned-Orphans Of Beauty. 

Clive’s Unique Jewelry has obtained all three volumes and believe us when we say that Eleanore’s collective is absolutely dazzling.  Each photo is a delight to the eye.   Each piece takes your breath away and all of this collection whether signed or unsigned has been elevated to a higher art form.  These are not coffee table books, but vast informational guides to collecting costume jewelry.

Retro Deco Geometric Necklace Set

It is always a mystery to us when we see a great unique necklace that is left unsigned.  This is one example. What we have here  are Gold tone matted geometric segmented triangles of varied sizes in a retro Deco design with matching pierced earrings.

Ann Klein Golden Vintage Criss Cross Necklace/Choker Set

Clive’s Unique Jewelry is always attracted to something shiny (it’s a good thing Clive doesn’t work in a Gold Mine) and this Ann Klein signed necklace set fits the bill.  The necklace consists of 15 criss crossed plump shiny gold tone hidden hinged designs with a square snap clasp bearing the signature Lion’s Head Ann Klein Hallmark.  This vintage set includes matching clip on earrings.  We are sure that this set was inspired by Paloma Picasso’s criss cross jewelry designs.  This choker necklace measures 16.0 inches in length and the matching earrings are about 1.25 inches wide.  Do you want to wear a classic?…… you have come to the right place !
