One of the recent additions to our DIVINE FINDS JEWELRY SHOP that immediately grabbed the attention of shoppers is this super pretty 18k white gold Toggle bracelet. Why? For one thing, how many like this have you seen? Secondly, those darling flowers you see in the bracelet are actually carved frosted rock crystal. And set in the center of each is a tiny diamond. Just magnificent design in a vintage bracelet any woman would love on her wrist. See more photos of this one by clicking on the photo above. If you like it, don’t just add it to your wish list: 8 shoppers have already done that. If you want it, buy it!
We know what our customers love best: RINGS! And we know what gemstone is their favourite: SAPPHIRE!
So here we have yet another out of this world Platinum Diamond and Sapphire ring that dates back to the 1950’s. What a knockout!
No lightweight ring, it weighs a hefty 13.41 grams, and holds 40 diamonds of VS1 clarity and G colour, set in a stunningly artistic design around a 7.5mm round cabochon sapphire of royal to navy marine blue colour. Just gorgeous! Learn more about this beauty and see more photos HERE!
One down and two left … that’s our ERTE rings we’re talking about! The first one we listed, the “Claire De Lune” was sold to a very delighted US buyer. Smart lady: we haven’t come across another ERTE “Claire de Lune” since.
But we still have the incredible “Alouette”, one of Erte’s most stunning Art Deco rings with diamonds, mother of Pearl and a gorgeous blue topaz stone … and that particular ring comes in an original Erte box. An original Erte box is rare these days.
Last, but far from least, we’ve just listed this stunning diamond and amethyst signed Erte ring known as the “Peacock”. It’s not hard to see why! Erte loved and admire birds and what bird has a more brilliant tail than the Peacock, which Erte has tried to capture in the diamond “feathers” of this ring. You can learn more about this one and the Alouette by clicking on the links provided in this post. Don’t let these highly collectible Erte rings get away from you.

If you follow trends in jewelry and fashion, you know that goes around comes around, goes away and comes back again. And that’s what I’m sure is going to happen now that the latest version of THE GREAT GATSBY movie is hitting theatres everywhere. Already, the big jewelry houses, like Tiffany and Swarovski are bringing out their Gatsby inspired lines.
At DIVINE FINDS JEWELRY at Ruby Lane, we’ve always had items from the Gatsby era: lovely pearl necklaces, rings and bracelets and fabulous big art deco rings. Enjoy our video below which highlights some of these Gatsby like jewels:

But yes, foiks, that’s it. This necklace is the one that most of our visitors love the most and wish were theirs. 22 shoppers have added this one to their carts … probably hoping that when we have a sale, the price will be more acceptable to their budgets. But sometimes, we just can’t drop a piece of jewelry as low as you would like: while you might think our items have 100 - 200% markup like you often see in modern retail stores, that’s usually not possible for us, and especially not possible on necklaces like this which cost so much to buy in the first place. I mean, surely, like me, you’ve sometimes been askance at the price being asked for some old piece of antique furniture that’s been painted and stripped and refinished and smells inside like, well, old furniture!
But now, take a piece like this necklace: it’s in pristine condition for something well over 100 years old. Not a single split pearl missing or replaced. The 2 peridots are in superb condition and of wonderful colour. And just look at that design! Try and find a modern piece today that matches it. Oh, I admit, some reproductions are amazing, but they are just that: repros! Machine-made; duplicated; available everywhere. They are not genuine antique pieces that only one person will own. Which one of the 22 wishers will make the decision that this one is theirs alone? Will that be you? LEARN MORE HERE.
There are some occasions that call for glitz and sparkle … fancy dinners, cocktail hours, office parties, New Year’s eve … and what gives more sparkle than lots of very high quality diamond clustered together in a ring like this one by renowned designer, KURT WAYNE?
All that sparkle is emanating from 1.30cts of VS clarity (near flawless!) diamonds of E-F colour. Do you know how good those diamonds are? That’s one of the highest gradings diamonds can get! This stunning 14k white gold ring measures 15mm wide across the top of your finger. No-one will miss the bling in this! LEARN MORE HERE.
While you’re over at Divine Finds Jewelry checking out that Kurt Wayne ring, be sure to look at the other one we have by him:
What is it about jewelry in the ART DECO period that so attracts collectors and lovers of beautiful jewelry? Is it the designs? The quality of the diamonds used?
Whatever the case, this incredibly lovely set of AKOYA PEARL and Diamond Earrings dating to around 1920 will please the most finicky collector of Art Deco jewelry. These are so beautifully made. The European-cut diamonds are of the highest quality: Vs2 - Si1 and G colour … and there’s around 1.5cts of them. The Akoya Pearls are round, smooth and lustrous and in fantastic condition. And the sparkle from those diamonds is blinding.

Okay … you know you’ve been looking for jewelry no-one else has got, something decidedly different that says you’re a free-thinker and not a slave to fashion.
And that’s why you’ll love this most unusual vintage 14k gold pendant made in italy where romance reigns supreme. Who else but an italian designer would decide that two parrakeets sitting on branch and singing the “Voices of Spring” would look lovely on your neck, especially if their colours were made of genuine gemstones: rubies, sapphires, emeralds and diamonds.
Welcome Spring! These parrakeerts sing with their uniqueness. Find out more about this pendant HERE.
Bring on the champagne! And while everyone’s sipping away, they won’t know if the sparkle they’re feeling and seeing is from the bubbly or this glorious 18k aquamarine and diamond cocktail ring! What a dazzler!
11 marquise-cut aquamarines totally around 2.2cts are arranged like petals of a flower around 8 glittering diamonds of VS clarity and G - H colour. Superb quality in a vintage 18k white gold ring. That buzz you’re feeling isn’t in your head: it’s everyone around you talking about this knockout ring! Learn more about it HERE.
Ever seen a cocktail/dinner ring quite like this? Me neither … and it was love at first site for me. Now I don’t usually go in for big rings (my fingers are too short and sausage-like to wear them!) but that doesn’t mean I couldn’t picture this 1 1/4” long X 1” wide beauty on someone else’s long slender fingers! Its design hints at a flower with 6 diamond stamen or pistols springing from the center of 10 oval cultured pearls, flanked by 7 marquise-cut emerald leaves on either side. The lovely 14k gold mount beneath it resembles vines and it all comes together so very artistically, don’t you agree?
The ring is hallmarked “SJHess” in script. lt could be a Jose Hess ring and that’d make it an even better investment. You can see more photos and learn more by clicking the photo or THIS LINK. It’s new to our shop today so don’t miss your chance to see it first.
And while you’re there, don’t forget our SPRING FEVER SALE is in full swing now with only 7 days left to pick up some real bargains in fine estate and antique jewelry.
