Another auction of original MADELEINE! all these lots are coming from a find in an old barn durning renovations. the back room contained a huge number of old carboard barrels filled with these pieces, stone,findings,tags,tools, the owner believes this woman had a shop in new york city before moving, what happened after that no idea, envolopes i found for pay were dated 1952. it is the store inventory we have found. i havent found a reference in my books however in the rhinestone guide of unsigned beauties her work is shown, identical to some of the pieces you will see at auction and in my store, apparently she signed either none of her work or very little. the style even i am starting to see with these lovely pieces. i would love to hear more about this designer and her work or even the store which was on 5th avenue according to some of the jewelry cards. so if you know,,,let me know :)

i asked and you all helped is more information on this lovely jewelry! ( I'm going to tell you who Madeleine is: She owned Madeleine Jewels Company, D and E, =Juliana, made many pieces for her, she is a French designer, and was known to be in France at one time. If you find a piece signed by her, it will be signed in all CAPS, and, in a set maybe only one earring will be signed, it is very rare to find a piece actually signed by her, it is also believed, she many times used real genuine stones in her jewelry. What is not know for certain is if Weiss, and Eiesenberg also made pieces for her, and some experts will say this is the other way around, that she made pieces for them. At any rate, this is her! I'm very certain, for I have seen the pieces of her signed work and you have listed one set I've seen signed by her. TC) thank you so much!!!

this auction is for a vintage green rhinestone jewelry necklace of greens, rhinestones and GIVRE stones or ART glass, look at the glow in those stones, this lovely piece measures 14" long and is 1" wide in center with 2 swags of green rhinestones on each side, great piece! if you think it looks great in the picture wait until you wear it :)

a great must have addition to your collection.

please remember these pieces have never been worn, they are dirty. i have tried to look for other flaws some without finishing hooks,or maybe saftey chains, some stones are very dirty but to survive what they have is a miracle! they need a new home and to be shown off! maybe yours?? :) is hoping you all had a great christmas! with new years around the corner i know you are all still very busy, so are we :) i will be shipping out this week then will be away for the weekend thru tues of next year :) from my home to yours have a safe and happy new years!! thank you for reading!

All great auctions start at .99 cents!!! have fun all!
