Antique Jewelry Dreaming - The Conversion Edition

This is the fifth and final edition of my Antique Jewelry Dreaming Wish List.  Just like the last four weeks, this week has its own theme, and today, it's conversion pieces.  These are some amazing stick pins, tie tacks, dress clips and old brooches that I can just imagine as a new piece with a new life!  So I hope you enjoy this final edition, as well as the entire series!


This sensational Pearl, Diamond & Coral naturalistic brooch offered by Hawk Antiques would be
even more fabulous re-imagined as a necklace, $3,359.38.  I can just picture it as an
amazing statement necklace!


I know a lot of folks would turn this cute little 14k Yellow Gold Griffon from Otherwise Engaged
into a ring but to me, he is screaming necklace, $300.  I think 
that as a necklace, he would be perfect for layering!


This stunning Platinum Edwardian Diamond Filigree Brooch from FillaDeeGree would be ideal turned
into a cuff-style bangle, $540.  I can picture it with double bars at each end extended to form
the cuff.  I think it would be a very unique piece!


This antique Art Deco Gold & Silver Emerald & Diamond Stickpin from CJ Antiques, Ltd. is ideal for a ring, $475.
The cabochon emerald is a beautiful color of green & with the diamond halo….Perfection!


The Crowned Princess with Enamel & Pearl Stickpin from Time Keepers in Clayton has so much
personality & would be a perfect ring, $1,075.  I think the enamel work is amazing & she would be so
adorable on my finger looking up at me!


This 18k White Gold & Diamond Diaper Pin offered by Gold Adore would be such a fun necklace, $495.
Imagine is set east-west instead of north-south; you could still add some adorable charms to it but
this setting would give it a more dynamic look.


This antique Gold Winged Arrow Pin in 14k gold from Trademark Antiques has so much potential, $425.  I
can picture it as both a necklace set east-west or converted into a very flirty little bracelet!  Honestly, I'm
not sure which idea I like better!
