If you like blue, this is great.  It is a light and dark blue stones collar necklace - stunning - the photo doesn't show it off.   1950 - 1960's I should think.  Look so good with a strapless dress.  Price £128.  Ref. 420 B1/16.

I have hardly bought anything since Christmas - but this I love.  It's an Art Deco necklace in green glass with gilt filigree beads and gilt bead caps and spacers.  So 1930's - and getting scarce.  I expect I say this about a lot of items - but it really isn't easy to find the best examples!  Think of me when you are lying in a warm bed and I am in a cold and draughty market somewhere!  Ref. 419 B1/40.  £88.
