Bringing together over 100 of the most iconic movie costumes from across a century of film-making, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the clothes worn by unforgettable and beloved characters such as Dorothy Gale, Indiana Jones, Scarlett O'Hara, Jack Sparrow, Holly Golightly and Darth Vader."

My Coro Duette on the left here will be in this exhibit, shown on the dress in this wonderful movie clip of the 1936 screwball comedy "My Man Godfrey" (William Powell) showing Carole Lombard wearing a blue star sapphire and diamond clip at her throat and a matching ring on her finger (not shown). If you are a lover of 30's jewelry, become a fan of the Turner Movie Channel where so many of these 30's movies can be seen, commercial free. It is a real treat for both vintage jewelry and classic movie lovers like me!
Also, the book for this amazing show is now out and available at the V&A or on Amazon.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
