Please do not expect store bought perfect new items! We will never guarantee our items to be in perfect condition, but then you would be paying department store prices!
If items are clearly marked, we do not have it acid tested, especially if markings include designers markings. Unmarked items we have tested. If natural hairline internal cracks in stones, loose settings (that normally happen over the years) bother you, or expect perfect, then you do not want Vintage. Even jewelry that is brand new tends to have flaws. This is all Antique Art Deco/Nouveau, Victorian, Vintage and newer Collectible jewelry, all newer items have been stored and are still part of the humongous estate collection and may have been worn, but minimally.
Silver jewelry with stones sometimes loosen over the years, and stones shift and accumulate hairline cracks. This is part of the charm of vintage jewelry.
Anything distracting we will note in our listings, anything damaged we do not list. We have researched all items, but are not experts, and have some great local resources, but please ask questions or share your knowledge too!
We do not list anything that we would not wear ourselves! Very popular from the 1930s thru the 1950s. This set consists of a Choker/Necklace, along with its matching bracelet. These often were printed with names of cities or locations, as a souvenir remembrance. But this necklace, and also bracelet, both are hand painted with just the simulated roses and leaves.Wear it just as it is, make it your own, or a great gift item for a special visitor! Some of the roses are more filled in, or detailed, just needs the personal lettering, or not! Appears to be gold plated or brass, necklace is approx. 14 ¾ inches from end to end and just shy of ½ inch wide. 7 inches from end to end with the same width. Both in super nice condition, has a few panels that have some smudges and scratching off of the paint (you have to really look closely, we will give a close up so that you can see the extent of it), but probably pretty common, very hard to detect when worn. Very sweet for any age! Take a look at pictures!
