Make A Memory
In days of yore, bespoke jewelry was fashioned in yellow gold that was crisp, but muted, to complement stones, enamel inlays and seed pearls. Shown here: Circa 1880 French bracelet in 18k yellow gold with seed pearls, $1,950 (displayed in authentic vintage jewelry case); circa 1910 platinum and 18k yellow gold earrings with old mine pearl and enamel, $595; and the ultimate memory maker, a true Victorian dating to circa 1890, 14k yellow gold locket with 26 turquoise rounds, $1,625.
