Figural *%#^ Friday. I really should not be allowed to own antique jewelry. I had this adorable, rosy pink horseshoe with the cutest, sweetest, little horse (I swear she has eyelashes) in my hands maaaybe ten minutes, dropped it on the marble bathroom floor, and... teeeny diamond lost. Due to the fury this instilled in me I refused to vacate bathroom, & had a flashlight, desk lap, fine foxtail brush. But!! I found the tiny microscopic little bugger. Now must go off to be repaired. 😫😫😫 Happy Friday- and be careful with your jewelry!! #figuralfriday #diamondhorseshoe #luckyhorseshoe #diamondstickpin
a group of antique, gold filled, French medals. Beautifully detailed, they all feature both male and female warriors. ⚔️🗡🛡. All four medals all hall marked with the French company’s name that manufactured this high end gold filled process, which mimics high carat gold. They are all in wonderful antique condition, with the exception of the smallest one. She’s seen a few battles in her time, and has a few scars. 😉All are available for purchase, and all come with my handmade, oxidized silver chains with gold filled accents. 🖤✨. Still working on details, but DM for purchase info. #thebijoubabe #frenchmedals #antiquefrenchmedals #goddessofliberty #frenchmarianne #vercingetorix #warriorjewelry
something I have only said one or two times in the last two years because things (in general) take me a really really long time: these cutie skull rings are new, and they are AVAILABLE ON THE WEBSITE. Wow, that feels good! It’s true, I added a bunch of new special things and all are available as made-to-order in your metal/size preference (gold too by request!) ☺️🙌🏻 www.julessontag.com - link in profile will take you there 💀🖤💀
Figural Friday! Even though I was raised in the Catholic faith, I occasionally stumble across a saint that I’m not heard of. St. William of York fits the bill nicely...including his ability to exorcise demons. This pristine sterling silver medal has him putting a demonic creature in a headlock, although St. William seems to have a perfectly lovely broadsword at his side 🤷🏻♀️ Who am I to question the ways of saints? If you feel in need of St. Bill and his ability to put the devil in a chokehold, you can find this treasure in my Etsy shop 😏#catholicmedals #sterlingsilver #religiousmedals #stwilliam #etsyseller #figuralfriday
Figural Friday is here again and I’m all about these critters. Sterling eagle head charm $60 🦅 Sterling and Number 8 turquoise bear pendant $300 🐻
I call this one the “Stacks On Sentimental Brooch” because seriously - there’s almost every single Victorian Era “dayum girl, you so fine” motif possible on this one.
Love bird ✔️ Ivy ✔️ Forget me not ✔️ clover ✔️ shield ✔️✔️ & I’ve probably missed a few more.
Hallmarked for Sterling Silver, Chester, 1901 - the last year of Queen Victoria’s long long long reign.
Brooches like these are referred to by collectors as “sweetheart brooches”. They were popular with the working classes from 1880 - 1905 as they were fashionable, sweet, unique, amusing and affordable. Popular with collectors for much the same reasons.
Available via DM at a pre-list price ✨

My non-entry for #jeweladvent18solstice
features our custom cast sterling silver Zodiac pendant with the four seasons depicted around the Sun and relating to the corresponding signs of the Zodiac. According to “The Element Encyclopedia of Secret Signs and Symbols” by Adele Nozedar, the true Zodiac is a conceptual division of space into 12 equal segments which radiate from the apparent path of the Sun. It also refers to the 12 constellations of stars that symbolize different human personality traits. It’s up for debate what the exact origins of the concept of the Zodiac are, but the ancient Babylonians are credited with being the earliest known source.
I like to think of it as our ancestors’ way of trying to explain the beauty and danger of the unknown skies above them and the changes they experienced in nature around them, trying to make sense and order of it all.
I have a very limited number of these pendants on hand and available for purchase. Please DM me for details.

Sharing this Victorian coral charm necklace for #Figuralfriday
. It was given to the lady in the second photo on her 13th birthday by her uncle, in 1854. He was a famous doctor and author who made several journeys to study cultures in exotic countries, and he brought this home to his niece. Photo of the giver in picture three. The lady, who later married a surgeon and professor, was to become known for her shining intellect, her kindness and tireless work to help poor children. The later has made her traceable not only as the wife of a well-known man but on her own accord. So cool!
In her charm collection you find everything a 13-year old Victorian girl needed: hairbrush, several fishes and sea creatures, cornicello, parasol, knife, taper holder and a few other things.
