New rings

There are four (well, now three!) new vintage and antique gold rings in the shop today. I can't wait to see who snags the serpent and garnet one!

Bloodstone signet ring

I just stocked an exceptional antique bloodstone signet ring in the shop this afternoon - 14K yellow gold with an engraving in Arabic script. If you've ever done any hunting around for signet rings you know that bloodstone signets (heliotrope) are one of the most desirable (if not the most desirable) examples. This ring is unique because it is engraved to be used as a seal, with an English name transliterated into Arabic. If your name is Van Wyck, this might be a long-lost family ring!

Bright little things

These little 1930s filigree pins are bright like candies and beautiful worn as pins or as pendants. If you have thick hair, you can probably wear them as hair ornaments, too (mine is too thin to make it work). What is not to love here? All four are currently stocked in the shop.
