ericaweiner People have been drawing - and laughing at - cartoon dongs since the dawn of humanity. This coin was artfully carved in the mid-to-late 1800's, and is for sale on ebay. The bidding's up to like $400, and it will probably go for a lot more.  #jewelryinspiration 18h

ericaweiner Jewelry engraved with the word "mizpah" (which connotes an emotional bond between people who have been separated from one another) was very popular in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The word, from the Old Testament, expressed a continuing connection to the deceased as well as the living. This silver locket from the 1860's is waiting for you to put your own images inside.  New online and in our Nolita shop. 1d

  •   whatscohenon I found a small lot of those wooden fist amulets at a junk sale- tell me more! 2d
  •   taniafromtheblock @whatscohenon those are Mano fico or Figa, the fig hand. It is an obscene gesture thought to ward off the evil eye, jealousy and malicious spirits. As a baby little Hispanic children, myself included, are often given bracelets with these to protect them from those envious of their youth and new beginning. They are Roman in origin. 2d

ericaweiner A diamond cluster ring with sexy proportions and a substantial, sparkly center stone. This guy won't last long I bet. It's interesting to see what sells immediately and what sticks around for awhile, but these flower shapes really are easy to love. Not yet online; email sales@ericaweiner.com for more details. 3d

ericaweiner This silver bracelet was made during the Aesthetic Period at the end of the 1800's. It would have been worn by a modern, liberated, fashionable woman, probably during the daytime. (At the time, wearing diamonds during daylight hours was perceived to be in poor taste.) 4d

ericaweiner In Latin, "AMICITIA" means "friendship". This Georgian ouroboros-encircled ring needed a lot of restoration work - the metal behind the stone had been badly water-damaged over the past few hundred years. To avoid further mishaps, the new owner must never, ever let this rare jewel get wet (not even a little!) Not yet online; email sales@ericaweiner.com for more details. 4d

ericaweiner A diamond-studded panel opens to reveal "MIZPAH". This old-testament word means, essentially, "an emotional bond between people who have been separated" either by distance or by death. The sentimental Victorians engraved it into their rings a lot. This isn't online yet; email sales@ericaweiner.com for more info. 4d
