Your humble host here wishing everyone a happy Friday! I thought I’d share this particular photo since I’m retiring these vintage, French, 1960s glasses soon. #vintage #vintage1960s #vintageglasses #vintagehat #1940shat #vintage1940s #antiquebrooch #pastecrescent #crescentbrooch #crescentmoon #georgianbrooch #bat #batnecklace #vintagebat #batgirl #winelabel #goth #pinup #vintagefashionist #vintagestyle #vintagejewerly #antiquejewelry #portalsoftimevintage

Update: The piece on the left (or screen left) has sold, but the one on the right is available.——-A pair of stunning, antique, Victorian, French, sentimental or mourning, hair art miniatures. I’m left without words every time I look at these. Just look at those flowers! 🖤 Approximately 5.25” x 6”. These are hard to capture because of the convex glass, so please excuse the tilt and light reflection.

For in and out, above, about, below,
‘Tis nothing but a Magic Shadow-show,
Play’d in a Box whose Candle is the Sun,
Round which we Phantom Figures come and go.
(Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, quatrain 46, c. late 11th or early 12th century)

SOLD. This jaw-dropper of a piece is an 18th-Century, Georgian Era, 10K gold, navette-shaped, mourning, silhouette, stick pin that has a hair locket to the back and a memorial inscription that reads: "Eleanor Jones ob: 14th Aug.st 1782." It was painted and signed by John Miers (1756-1821), one of the most famous of the English silhouette artists of his time. He was also one of the most prolific and it's said that copies of over 100,000 silhouettes were found in his studio upon his death in 1821. You may wonder how this is possible considering the time it would have taken, but Miers’ silhouette artistry was such that the average portrait took five minutes or less according to advertisements found on the back on his pieces. At the time when Miers painted this silhouette early in his career, c. 1782, the practice of silhouette artistry involved hand-painting them on various materials including paper, porcelain, plaster, ivory, and glass. Of course, silhouettes were also cut out of blackened paper, a technique that goes back to the 17th century. According to @artofmourning, one of the earliest known, English, scissor-cut silhouettes was a profile of William and Mary dated to 1699 made by cutter Elizabeth Pyburg. Further, silhouettes were referred to as "shades" or "black shades" until 1832 when the term "silhouette" first came into use, so technically, the piece discussed here would have been called a "shade" during its time.

SOLD. “Mother Sept 14th, 1889.” A simple inscription expressing a heavy sentiment of loss. What sets this ring apart from other hair, mourning, ring bands is that the face of the ring is in the shape of a wondrous shield that is covered in black enamel. The 9K gold shoulders and panels are beautifully embellished with acanthus leaf designs while three segments of dark auburn, woven hair mementos are left exposed. Such a beautiful way to mourn and remember a dear, lost, loved one. 🖤 It’s a US size 7 and cannot be resized. DM for best price or visit my Etsy store and use the code: INSTAGRAMTEN at checkout.

As long as I’m enjoying some ‘90s nostalgia, these were my everyday rings during the mid-to-late 90s. All except the thumb talon. My thumb talon had a plain surface like the long, dagger, finger shield on my pointer finger. I can only imagine who borrowed it and still has it—or did I misplace it? 😢 I used to get hassled by security at shows and I remember this one Marilyn Manson show where I ended up tucking the sharp ones in my bra until I was inside. TMI? 😂 Have I mentioned that I love metal objects and sharp things? The talon ring on my thumb is for sale, but the rest are mine! Let me add that I kind of cringe every time 90s jewelry is labeled as vintage. 😦 I’ve dealt with ‘80s stuff being called vintage, but the 90s? I remember it like it was yesterday. 🖤#personalcollection #daggerring #fingershield #talonring #armorring #crownring #clawring sharkfinring sterlingsilverjewelry #sterlingsilverrings #goth #gothjewelry #gothrings #gothic #90snostalgia #marilynmanson #vintagejewelry #vintagejewellery #dagger #claw #talon #pointythings #ringaddiction #ringaddict #ringoftheday #rotd #showmeyourrings #ringsofinstagram #jeweleyaddict ##portalsoftimevintage

Killer, 1990s, liquid metal, chainmail-mesh, cuff bracelet and backpack purse. More 90s nostalgia for me because I still have my nickel, mesh jewelry from when I was selling it at the boutique I managed in San Francisco. It just doesn’t go out of style. The purse weighs a whopping 2.5 pounds! While the bracelet feels silky against the skin. Rings are also for sale. DM if interested. —> It’s a few hours later and I just noticed I forgot to mute the sound. 😂#vintagejewelry #vintagejewellery #vintagebracelet #vintagebracelets #cuffbracelet #vintagebangle #vintagepurse #meshjewelry #chainmail #meshpurse #liquidmetaljewelry #chainmailjewelry #jewelryaddict #jewelryaddiction #antiquering #antiquerings #garnetring #vintagering #ringaddict #portalsoftimevintage

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

Shipping out these beautiful bracelets that are cast from anteater bones. This is a group of six bracelets stacked together to create articulation. I sold these back in the ‘90s when Marché Noir did their first run in silver and these white brass pieces from one of their last runs are just as lovely! 🖤 I also love that they were an American company too! #bracelet #bracelets #stackingbracelets #bonejewelry #vertebrae #bones #animalbones #skeleton #skeletonjewelry #vertebraejewelry #gothjewelry #goth #portalsoftimevintage

Update: The lion brooch has sold, but the two rings are available.——-I’m a big fan of sterling silver, figural jewelry and when animals are the subject, even better.

Now up for auction: Edwardian, Memento Mori, Skull Ring. Hallmarked for the maker, Cooper Brother & Sons, sterling silver, Sheffield [England], 1905. This is a rare gem. It belonged to my friend, eBay seller: antiqueoneofakind. (She’s not on IG yet.) She inherited her father’s memento mori collection when he passed and I acquired a number of pieces from her. This is one of the last pieces I have from this collection (besides a vintage skull charm) and her other pieces are mostly gone as well. A lot of antique Memento Mori pieces out there on eBay are fake Eastern European pieces or two or more pieces married together being represented as originals by sellers from other countries as well. Of course, there are many honest sellers who sell legit pieces from this genre as well, so get to know who they are. This ring is an original beauty and can be worn by any gender. Size 8. $699 for the opening bid. See my story for photos. Direct link in comments or eBay store link in bio. Also, you can searche for seller: portalsoftime 💀#skullring #skulljewelry #skull #mementomori #mementomoriring #edwardianring #antiquering #antiquejewelry #antiquejewellery #ringoftheday #ringsofinstagram #ringaddict #jewelryaddict #portalsoftimevintage
