Here are some more items from my mother's old jewelry box.
I came across this necklace about a year ago and realized how pretty it was. I know I'd seen it before, but its charm was lost on me until recently. The picture doesn't show too much of the chain, but it's unusual enough to add to the charm of the necklace.
This is another necklace that I find interesting because of its old-fashioned look. The filigree work is on a translucent material that is probably some sort of plastic that has a kind of sunburst look to it. The stone in the center may or may not be a tiny diamond. My main reason for thinking it might be real is that it's so tiny. It seems that, if it were a rhinestone, they would have used a gaudier one. The butterfly-shaped filigree piece on the chain is a sort of gold color, rather than the white of the pendant and chain. I'm not sure whether that was intentional or whether it has tarnished with age.
This necklace has a lovely green stone in a white filigree setting. It has some filigree work on the chain that is similar to the previous photo, but it is white on this necklace. There are also some little pearls and imitation stones enhancing the chain.
This cameo necklace has always been a favorite of mine. I love the chain, the little dangly things under the pendant, the cameo itself, and its setting. I could probably do without the rhinestones at the four corners, but they don't keep me from enjoying this piece.
This is an old locket which has always held a fascination for me because of the elaborate detail on its face.
I hope I haven't bored everyone to death with these trinkets from my past. But, if I have, you can relax now. I think I've pretty well exhausted my supply.
