This gentleman's photo has been replaced with a photo of another distinguished friend who died in June, and the brooch was given to one of his dearest friends and colleagues. So elegant!

Great detail on the seahorses. I can't wait to wear them. I already have the beautiful bracelet on I bought from Ann. Her wrapping is so caring and pretty.

The bracelet is as unusual as it is gorgeous. The seller, Ann, wraps everything so beautifully and carefully it's as though she is sending you a present.

Offering the Nifty Thrifty to Eclectic and Rare...
I've been buying and selling vintage jewelry and making jewelry since 1976. There are so many amazing pieces out there, so much diversity and that's what I like to offer - the unusual, the lovely, the wicked!
I love assisting with the hunt, so if you are looking for a particular piece, something rare to odd, please let me know. You can also see the shop I run with my spouse here on Etsy, The Mr. Venus Oddity Shop. Thank you for dropping by!
Owner, Creator, Purveyor, Jurist And Junkist.
Convincing you to buy things since 1976.
The lovely Linda Milki assists me in many areas. She's a great photographer, style consultant, Instagram marketer and has eagle eyes in spotting flaws and typos! She freelances, so contact her for pix & marketing; email@example.com
I test every piece of sterling silver before it's listed. If I state that it's sterling, please know that I've tested it whether it is marked as sterling or not. The same with Bakelite, amber, and coral.
All jewelry will be mailed to you safely wrapped inside a cardboard jewelry box that will be tucked inside of a bubble mailer. I understand that you don't want your lovely purchase looking like confetti when it arrives. I don't want that to happen either!
My customers are very important to me. I want my customers to be satisfied at a minimum, and hopefully thrilled with their purchase, and will do whatever I can to see that they are. If you need extra information about an item, I'm here to answer your questions. I have the luxury of working in a business where I can make people happy. That's an honor and that's my goal.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I will ship internationally upon request if your country is not listed on the shipping. Let me know what country I'll be mailing the item to, as weight and size will determine the costs. IMPORTANT - International import thresholds can be very low, and I recommend checking the threshold here, especially if you are in the U.K. or Germany.
I mail within 72 hours of receiving the order. I try to get the shipment out on the same day or next day if I can. Please contact me if you need your item within a certain time period.
Refunds and Exchanges
Additional policies and FAQs
Regarding reserved items - If you ask for a reserve, I will hold the item for 24 hours. I need to know when you plan on purchasing at the time you reserve the item. If I don't hear from you within twenty four hours, I will assume you don't want the item and will take the reserve off. If a customer repeatedly reserves and doesn't contact me, I will no longer be able to reserve anything for that customer. Thank you for understanding.
