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!

1940’s Ski Pin

Skiing Down The Slopes Has Never Been More Fun.

This young lady is just is racing  down the slopes in her black & red ski outfit complete with swirling snow behind her.  This  young lady has had her share of bumps and bruises on the slopes judging by the scratched enamel black & red paint on her outfit. The detail is absolutely  great complete with her blond hair flying in the breeze and that wonderful cherry red lipstick.  The pin is very old, the brass needs some polishing, and the clasp needs repair or replacement…..but think of the fun you would have in restoring this pin to its original glory.  The pin is 1 1/2″ in diameter, 1 1/2″ tall and the skis themselves are almost 2 1/2″ long.  By next winter you and her could make a huge statement on the slopes.
