BOA NECKLACE ( Vintage Multi-strand Necklace with Snake Pendant ): As those of you who may have looked at my Mourning and Victorian Jewelry sections already know, I have an affinity for Snake Jewelry. The snake engagement ring Prince Albert gave to Queen Victoria symbolized eternal love, wisdom and eternity. I purchased this 11 strand Quartz Necklace with the imposing Boa Constrictor Pendant at Neiman Marcus many years ago. I know that because, when not being worn, he has lived in his original jewelry bag and box. The necklace, which is essentially a chocker in order to best show off the pendant, consists of 3 strands of faceted multi-colored beads, 4 strands of translucent gray-green beads and 4 strands of clear rectangular crystal beads. (One photo shows it spread out.) The resin Boa Constrictor is set on a Sterling Silver coiled wire which also forms the large bale. It is signed “Victor Calvin ??” (I can't read the last name) along with the title “BOA”. It has a large decorated silver hook and eye closure.

Condition: Excellent.
Size: Total length of necklace 16” (can be shortened down to 15 1/4”), width roughly 1”. Pendant 3 3/4” long, 2 1/8” wide, 1 3/8” deep.

ORIENTAL FROG NECKLACE ( Vintage Oriental Granite and Jade Necklace ): I love “critter” decorated jewelry and, as you can tell from my postings, Frogs are among my favorite critters. The round beads are mainly variegated gray-green granite with touches of peach. The primary decorations are the large detailed resin Frog seated on a large granite disc, the white Jade overlapping carved discs, the white Jade carved dangling rectangle and the large tan resin bead at the bottom decorated with flowers and oriental symbols. In addition there is a small Ivory oriental carved disc and 2 cylindrical banded agate beads. It has an easily handled gold wire hook and eye closure. The necklace is reversible with the frog rotatable so he can also be on the other side.

Condition: Excellent.
Size: Length 19 1/2” . Frog 2” long, 1 5/8” wide, 3/4” deep. Double Jade disc 2” long, 1 1/4” wide, 1/8” deep.

LIZARD & AMBER NECKLACE ( Susan Tereba Mammoth Tusk and Amber Necklace ): Susan Tereba's “World on a String” creates one-of-a-kind jewelry made in Bali. She calls this delicate creation “Guardians of Truth”. The most striking features are the 2 Lizards carved from fossilized Mammoth Tusk with Emerald eyes. The 3 elliptical beads at the bottom along with the 2 Butterflies and several of the small beads are made from Baltic Amber. The other beads are made of Carnelian, Jasper, Citrine and Quartz – elements from around the globe. I kept her card about this necklace since I found it so interesting and will include it. The name comes from the saying in Bali that when a small lizard chirps during a conversation it is an affirmation that truth is spoken. One of the features I really like about this necklace is that there are 2 extenders of different lengths allowing you to wear it at any of 4 different lengths. The links at both ends of the necklace are Vermeil (14 KT gold over Sterling Silver). The 2 extenders are Sterling Silver. The extenders have spring ring closures and the necklace has a hook and eye closure. A delicate one-of-a-kind beauty you can treasure.

Condition: Excellent.
Size: Length 17”, 19” with 2 link extender, 22” with 5 link extender, 24” with both extenders. Lizards are 2 1/2” long, 1” wide, 1/4” deep.

FOREVER AMBER ( Vintage Baltic Amber Necklace and Clip Earrings ): I love Amber Jewelry and I'm obviously not the only one since amber jewelry literally dates back to the Stone Age – 13,000 years ago. Amber is fossilized tree resin and is not only a beautiful color but is fascinating due to all the various inclusions caught in the resins centuries ago. It is also known for its healing power. This gorgeous necklace is made of translucent polished beads of Baltic Amber of various sizes and shapes – larger in the front and smaller around the neck. Many of the inclusions gleam like gold. The sturdy string is also amber colored. It has a barrel screw closure. The earrings consist of three stones with a hollow circular one at the bottom. They have a padded clip closure.

Condition: Excellent.
Size: Necklace 26” long. Beads vary from 1 1/4” in front to 1/2” in back. Earrings 2 1/2” long, 1” wide.

AMBER DRAGONFLY ( Vintage Baltic Amber Dragonfly Brooch / Pin ): A Dragonfly made of Baltic Amber seems appropriate. Amber is fossilized tree resin with the oldest dating back to 320 million years – and fossilized dragonflies have been found that date back 325 million years! I wish I could tell you that among the lovely inclusions within the Amber were dragonfly wings, but I couldn't find any. The body and amber settings are Sterling Silver marked “925”. An eye-catching adornment for your collar.

Condition: Excellent.
Size: 2 1/2” long, 2 1/2” wide, 1/4” deep.

AMBER CHOCKER ( Vintage Baltic Amber Spring Chocker ): Sassy and elegant, this Baltic Amber beaded chocker can be worn with casual wear or evening elegance. The three spring wires are strung with small copper beads, decorated silver beads, white beads and multiple opaque and clear Amber beads of various sizes and shapes. It is set off with a large drop shaped Amber dangle in front. The spring in the wires holds it comfortably around your neck no matter what your neck size.

Condition: Excellent.

LEOPARD JASPER CHIPITAS ( Vintage Chipita Clip Earrings ): Chipita Earrings were extremely popular in the 1980's and collected worldwide. When their popularity waned Joan Eagle, the owner and designer of the southern Colorado company, changed to a simpler look. I panicked because I just loved the old style ones and I started buying all I could find. These earrings are typical of the old style with a large leather backed stone at the top and several dangles of decorated metal shapes, beads and semiprecious stones. These large fan shaped stones are spectacular Leopard Jasper with Onyx around the bottom edged with small gold beads. The dangles consist of small clear, green, amber and gold beads followed by square Jasper beads, burnished copper and black metal discs and larger Amber discs. They are padded clip earrings with “Chipita” stamped on the clip. I still love them! I hope you will too.

Condition: Excellent.
Size: Length 3”, width 2”. Top stones 1 1/4” long, 1 3/4” wide, 3/16” deep.

Here she has combined a Frog carved out of Amber with a large dangle of a rare and gorgeous example of red Moss Agate. Besides Amber's beauty, it is also known for its healing power. As always her pins can also be worn as pendants which is my preference. This one has attached ring bales at both the top and bottom so it can be worn either way. You can see her familiar “AKR” initials along with “Sterling” on the back of the Sterling Silver setting.
