James tells us about this beau­ti­ful 1930s pen­dant and brooch

A beau­ti­ful piece of 1930s jewellery

Us­ing our trade con­nec­tions in London’s Hat­ton Gar­den and the prin­ci­pal trade cen­tres in Birm­ing­ham’s Jewellery Quar­ter, we at­tempt to bring qual­ity items at af­ford­able prices to our cus­tomers.

The search for qual­ity items of jewellery is be­com­ing ever more chal­leng­ing. Due to their rar­ity, Ge­or­gian foil-backed items are al­ways de­sired.

Trade sources have long been not­ing the ris­ing prices of the finest qual­ity pieces of jewellery, as many have been dis­re­garded and bro­ken up or re­fash­ioned due to the lat­est trends.

Tiaras and di­adems are a clas­sic ex­am­ple of jewellery be­ing re­mod­elling or up­cy­cled. We have long said that the golden era for jewellery were the Art Nouveau and Art Deco pe­ri­ods and sub­se­quently the pre-Sec­ond World War pe­riod.

One item we would like to show­case is our ex­quis­ite pe­riod (circa 1930) nat­u­ral fresh­wa­ter pearl and di­a­mond pen­dant and brooch. It pro­vides the wearer with the flex­i­bil­ity and op­tion of ei­ther wear­ing as a fine pen­dant to ac­cen­tu­ate the neck­line when wear­ing a ball gown or evening dress, or as a brooch for a top coat when at­tend­ing any so­ci­ety so­cial oc­ca­sion.

The old-cut di­a­monds pro­vide the ul­ti­mate daz­zle to this fine piece of jewellery. The cen­tral pearl mea­sures ap­prox­i­mately 8mm by 6.2mm and is sur­rounded by a mille grain wreath and flo­ral lau­rel gar­land with open foil work bow mo­tif.

The di­a­monds are es­ti­mated to have a to­tal carat weight of ap­prox­i­mately 1.2cts. The en­tire pen­dant is set in the finest hand­crafted 18k (750) white gold.

The 18k white gold chain is de­tach­able, en­abling the fold­ing bale to be con­cealed and

allowing the wearer the op­tion of us­ing the pen­dant as a stun­ning brooch.

The unique be­spoke an­tique emer­ald green leather-bound box with em­bla­zoned gold leaf has been re­fur­bished by the finest crafts­men. The outline con­tour of the pen­dant has been re-coun­ter­sunk, en­abling the pen­dant to sit per­fectly within it.

At Juels’ Lim­ited we are al­ways seek­ing to pur­chase all fine qual­ity pe­riod items of jewellery. If sell­ing is not an op­tion why not sim­ply drop into the Royal Ar­cade? We would be thrilled to view your items. We of­fer a full and com­pre­hen­sive val­u­a­tion ser­vice with the cost be­ing a do­na­tion to the East Anglia Air Am­bu­lance a truly wor­thy char­ity.

At Juels’ Lim­ited we pro­vide some of the finest pe­riod jewellery any­where to be found in the East Anglia re­gion. We metic­u­lously scour the area in search of pe­riod items of jewellery that are avail­able to pur­chase.
