  • Unusual modernist wheat necklace in a silver tone metal made by Marks and Spencer (has the M&S stamp) on the last link. Although it feel fairly chunky it looks very neat. Not sure when this one was made, but it is in very good condition with some slight wear at the back and some discolouration (maybe from perfume) near the sturdy clasp.

  • Pastel rhinestone necklace in very good condition.

It has a hook fastener and large chain links which allow you to choose a length that suits you or what you are wearing. Looks really nice as a choker. Looks great with blue denim. The necklace is unsigned but has one of the less well recognised Jewelcraft tags (called the bullet).  The back looks and feels like a Jewelcraft piece and shows very mild wear where the sections hinge together, but the front is excellent.

  • Just look at this fantastic opaline moonstone glass necklace. In very good condition and so delicate with 11 oval art glass cabochons (designed to look like opals or moonstones) which have blue, pink and pearly tones depending on where you view them from. Each of these cabochons is separated by gold tone metal crosses with a tiny prong set aurora borealis stone.  It is just gorgeous.

  • Copper-tone brooch by UK jewellery maker 'Exquisite'.  Made in the 1960s as part of the 'Trees of the month' series. The copper tone covers the front and back and the leaves are very detailed with a bunch of four cherries. The 'Exquisite' signature is stamped on the back.  This is quite a large brooch which fastens with a secure roll over safety clasp. The cherries have some wear to the plating but the brooch is so shiny that it is hard to notice. I would describe it as in good condition.

  • Gorgeous pink filigree brooch which recreates 1930s style. Features gold metal filigree with millegrain outlines on the front and back of the brooch.
