Rhinestones – Antique & Vintage Jewelry

Recorded evidence shows that rhinestones have been used in Jewelry since the 1600’s. Many of the “found” examples of this jewelry was made in Germany and France, which is not unusual since iris quartz, one of the varieties of quartz used to make rhinestones come from the Alps.  As a matter of fact, the name “rhinestone” is derived because these stones where brought down off the mountain by rivers such as the Rhine.  What makes a rhinestone so iridescent and shiny?  Internally, the rhinestone is made of many fractures and breaks.

Dumb Mikey Helps Me Out

I came upon Mikey the other day and he had a very long pole and a yardstick.  He was standing the pole up and trying to reach the top of it with the yardstick.  So I grab the pole from him, lay it on the ground and proceed to measure it for him.  I tell him, “Mikey the pole is exactly 10 feet long.”  Mikey gets flustered and yells at me, “You dummy, I don’t want to know how long it is, I want to know how tall it is.”

History of the Valentine’s Day Card

Valentine’s Day has been celebrated for hundreds of years and many believe that it all started with a priest named Valentine in Rome during the third century.  Valentine supposedly defied Emperor Claudius II who thought that single men made better soldiers than married men.  Valentine continued to marry young lovers and was imprisoned when he was found out.

Later, while still in prison, Valentine, a true romantic at heart sent the first “Valentine’s” card.  On top of everything else, Valentines first card was sent to his jailor’s daughter, with whom he had fallen in love.  Before he was executed, he sent the girl a letter that was signed, “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still written by hundreds of you still today.

So later, Mikey asks me for a ride home.  I suspected that my left turn signal was not working, so I told him, “Sure Mikey, I’ll give you a ride, but can you help me first?”  “Sure,” Mikey says, “What do I have to do?” So I proceed to tell him, “Go to the back and let me know if my left turn signal is working.”  Mikey gets to the back and says, “Yes, its working . . . No it’s not working . . . Yes, it’s working . . . No, it’s not working . . .

Heavy Artwork Being Stolen in England

Police in London, England are stymied by the rash of thefts of art work . . . and these are not your typical “get it off the wall” robberies.  The artwork being stolen is large, heavy, bronze sculptures that have been taken from museums and sculpture gardens as well as private collections.  The brazen thieves apparently arrive at night with a big van or truck and haul their loot away.  So far, they have made off with at least 20 of these large sculptures in the past year, most in the past 6 months. 

Police fear that the thieves are not aware of the worth of the sculptures they are taking and are stealing them for nothing more than their scrap metal value, since none of the stolen pieces have been recovered to date.  Last year in a NOVA-Antiques.com Newsletter article we informed you that the stolen “Reclining Figure” by Henry Moore worth an estimated $18 million is only worth about $9,000 as scrap metal.
