Vintage Jewels

Most of our vintage jewels were purchased in the early 1970s -- some from Nervo, some from Leo Popper & Sons, some from Heaven knows where. Some were manufactured as far back as the early 1900s. Although they might be dusty, they are not used -- they are new, and might even be wrapped in their original packaging.

We are talking 100% pure vintage here, people. 

You will not find our vintage flowered jewels anywhere else. We believe they were acquired by the previous administration sometime in the early 1970s. We've been selling them in our store for decades, but have finally decided to add them to the website.

 Add a unique touch to your artistry.

Odd Jewels from Nervo
Odd Jewels from Nervo

More leftover jewels from the Nervo factory, still in their original boxes. (You might actually receive the white box with the Nervo logo on it if you order about 10 of these). Commonly used in the border of a window. They measure 2-1/2" on each side. A ridge starts at each corner and the three ridges meet in the center of the jewel, like a shallow three-sided pyramid. The jewel's thickness at the center is about 1/2". The edges are 1/8" thick, so they take copper foil quite well. The surface of the triangle jewel is covered by a raised irregular design resembling small vines. The blue is slightly translucent, where the green is a solid green opalescent.

Genuine German Clear Glass Polished Jewel Stones

These polished glass jewels are top quality German products which are cast and then tumbled to produce a perfect finish. They are suitable for use in jewelry work. One of their uses is in the lampshades of the Tiffany Dragonfly Series, and in other applications calling for elongated shapes, such as in floral or geometric designs. Here is an example of one Dragonfly Shade, in which many sizes and shapes of oval glass jewels are used.

Carved Glass for Accents and Jewelry Findings

We have acquired these perfect quality Bavarian glass jewels, which were made for the stained glass industry. These are a rare and endangered species, because of the environmental laws which prevent many of the small Bavarian "cottage industries" from producing the jewels in the old way
