Photo if Possible Will Help
by: Anonymous

can you please let me know if the letter i upper (I) or lower (i) case?
also the letter a - it is upper (A) or lower case (a) case?

Carly is there anything between the letters? Like a decimal mark?

Is it possible for you to upload a photo of the brooch and the mark in a follow-up submission?

This would give me some clue about the age and style
and then the direction to research.

Based on the little information we have - for all we know it could be Russian - Ivan Alekseev!

More Information please Carly.

Thank you for writing in!

Best Regards

Similar bracelet - unknown stamp 'ai'
by: Jane

Hello, I also have a bracelet which looks gold but the only stamp I can see is "ai" on the clasp which as you stated looks square. The bracelet itself has links which are oblong/oval with black inlay which is then decorated with gold alternating flowers then bird with flower. It also has a safety chain. It's very pretty and unusual looking. Did you find out what the 'ai' means ? Appreciate any information.

Plumes, Feathers, Wallis Simpson and More Photos

Hi Francis

could you please send in a photo of the mark in a follow-up submission. Please type "Birds of a Feather | Gold Bracelet" in subject title.

The title of your post caught my eye. Feathers was the theme for Chanel, as a prelude for things to come at the Biennale des Antiquaires Grand Palais Paris 15 - 22 September 2010 .

Chanel designers surfaced with an articulate brooch that Diane Kruger wore in her hair at Cannes and the Exact replica of the Chanel plume brooch, created by Mll. Coco Chanel in 1932!

It reminded me of the PLUME diamond brooch designed in 1935, by Edward, the Prince of Wales for his future bride, Wallis Simpson, a plume-shaped diamond brooch, that was later sold to Elizabeth Taylor.

( Wallis & Edward) plume diamond brooch is ia feather plume that Wallis Simpson Wore. You can see it Here.

Best Wishes,
