DROP DEAD GORGEOUS DECO DRESSING



I've long been a fan of Isadora's in Seattle. Known primarily for their vintage jewelry, they also offer some stunning reproductions of deco era gowns in the finest most delectable fabrics you can imagine. The bling goes from antique platinum and diamond filigree engagement rings to Victorian garnet jewelry, and, of course magnificent estate diamonds. You’ll also find couture Christian Dior, charming 1920’s cloche hats, and decorative objects for the home. Take a look . . .





This beautiful silk chiffon scarf is a perfect accent to any wedding gown. The scarf pictured is accented with delicate hand painting.



Circa 1930. This wonderful pair of German sterling marcasite earrings have a wonderful design and are accented with beautiful carnelian in a lovely burnt orange color. They measure 58mm long and 12mm wide. They are screwbacks.



Circa 1890. This beautiful antique 18KT gold snake ring has two heads. One is accented with a ruby and the other a diamond. The top of the ring measures 16mm wide and 3.5mm tall. The base of the shank measures 4mm wide and 1mm thick.
