What’s New – Volume 8

Baubles, Bling, and The Latest Things

As 2021 is wrapping up, so many of us are looking forward to a fresh start in 2022.  New Years resolutions will be made with the best of intentions.  Perhaps this time I will truly embrace the “new year, new me” concept.  There’s something so enticing about new beginnings!

This lovely brooch represents all of those things.  Made from 14 karat yellow gold, this swallow pin is absolutely charming.  Every bit of him, from the tip of his beak to the end of his characteristic split tail is covered with dainty seed pearls.  With an array of creamy tones, each tiny pearl adds texture and dimension.  A singular ruby dots his little eye.

The swallow, a migratory bird, has long been associated with good luck.  Because they are always on the move, they also encourage us to let go of the past, putting all the negatives behind us and move forward into a new era of living in harmony with yourself and others.

Viewed from behind, the smooth shiny gold surface reveals two hallmarks.  One is the 14 karat gold mark, while the other is a manufacture’s mark.  It is the mark of the Newark, NJ firm called Riker Brothers.  An American maker, this family-owned and operated firm was one of the few to showcase the skills of American jewelry manufacturers.  

A recent addition to our antique and estate department, this sweet swallow is available for just $575.00.  The small size makes it so wearable and versatile… the ideal piece to usher in 2022.  Wear this beauty when the ball drops on December 31st and kick the year off in style.
