On July 17th, Fellows Auctions will be having another fabulous sale of antique and modern jewelry. I spent hours sorting through their catalog and highlighted quite a few amazing pieces including a collection of antique crescent moon jewelry as well as a variety of unusual antique lavalieres. Here I’m sharing a few pieces highlighting one of my favorite stones – Persian turquoise. Not only do they feature a favorite stone of mine, they also highlight three popular Victorian motifs that I absolutely LOVE: Starbursts, crescent moons, and snakes! Be sure to click each picture to be taken to their auction catalog information, and happy bidding!
