c1930 German 935 silver & enamel bracelet with chinoiserie scenes, each different.  The silver behind the enamel has a pattern of fine concentric circles, causing light to radiate from the scenes (particularly cool with the water imagery, and not at all visible until you see it in person!). Clasp is set with agate.  About 6 3/4" long and quite wide at 1 3/8". Weight of 50g. Other than a small chip in one of the blue squares (shown), remarkable condition.  Available.

Here's a great WWI charm.  It's a fairly typical design, a German helmet, but somebody at the time lodged a tiny bullet in one side.  It came with some other US WWI stuff, and the bullet was probably added during or at the end of the war to make a point.  SOLD.

The coolest mid-century initial cufflinks!  The letter R is designed as a well-dressed guy with a bottle of wine.  He may be a waiter or butler, but it looks like he's getting ready to sample the goods before serving.  Would love to see the rest of the alphabet!  Marked CAPO STERLING HANDMADE.  Available.

Rare 1939 New York World's Fair glass brooch designed as a glove & hat box with travel stickers.  I haven't seen this one before--few probably survived.  The back is marked MADE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA.  Available.

Estela Popowski figural antelope earrings in sterling, brass, and black resin (sometimes misidentified as onyx), made in Taxco.  The antelopes are mirror images so both will face forward when worn.  Very graceful mid-century design.  2 13/16" long.  Available.

Substantial c1950 Sam Kramer ring with a huge irregular carved turquoise on a sculptural band that is maximum Kramer (inside and out). Also love the rocker-engraved texture on the bezel.  Hard to measure exactly but about a size 6 with a weight of 24g.  Available.

Amazing 70s 3-dimensional sterling boot pendant.  I love the details of this run-down footwear design--the patches, the hole, the separation of the sole (notice the little nails!). Good size and weighs 40g.  Marked STERLING, no signature.  Available.
