Suggested Reference Books For Collectors
I am sorry that it is no longer possible for me to respond to questions concerning the identification, history or value of individual jewelry items. The desire for this information is understandable, but it is not really the business that I am in. I love researching the pieces that I sell, but I am not a jewelry appraiser. Please check the suggested reference books that will provide you with useful information concerning all styles of antique and contemporary jewelry.
My best regards,
