This Week's Vintage Bling - Translucent Blue and Milk Glass Brooch

I love milk glass. It is so romantic and feminine. Normally, the jewelry that contains milk glass beads or stones is plain white, so it was lovely to come across this stunner with translucent blue stones as well.

The brooch is set in silvertone metal and has a slightly layered and curved design. There are alternating rows of pure white milk glass and translucent blue glass in prong settings as well as lovely aurora borealis rhinestone accents. The bottom center of the brooch features a single tear shaped large milk glass stone.

The size is 1 3/4 x 1 5/8". It is available from my Ruby Lane shop - Finishing Touch Vintage Jewelry for only $36. Hurry - it won't last long at this price!

Vintage Jewelry Find - Art Glass and Rhinestone Demi Parure

This week's vintage jewelry find is a gorgeous art glass and green rhinestone demi parure. It is to die for!

The set consists of a brooch and matching pair of clip back earrings. The stones in this demi are so special. They are marquis shaped and have a lot of texture to them with both pale green and dark green veining. The design is finished off with prong set medium green rhinestones.

There are no markings on the pieces, but they have all the ear marks of an unsigned Beau Jewels set with the layered design, fancy stones and filigree settings.

This lovely green art glass demi parure is available at Vintage Jewelry Lane for $89.99.
