14kt. fold formed handmade hoop drop earrings 2.4gr., 32mm, $280.00 CAD. 426-00100

Master goldsmith Charles Lewton-Brain invented the seldom-seen technique used in these unique earrings; fold-forming. A piece like this would have started as a flat sheet of gold that gets repeatedly hammered against different anvils and metal stakes to produce both the deep trough and to curve the gold into a rounded hoop. Throughout this process, the gold needs to be repeatedly relaxed with a torch to ensure it doesn’t work-harden and crack. The smith that created these earrings had to be especially careful to maintain an even dent-free surface, placing every hammer stroke carefully. The 32mm long drops are made from 2.4 grams of 14K yellow gold and their curved ear wires nestle tightly into the curved points of both earrings, creating a seamless look. Estate price $280.00 CAD. Stock #426-00100

14kt. twisting drop earrings, 7cm, 2.9gr. $315.00 CAD. 426-00113

Measuring almost 3 inches long these twirling drop earrings are almost in shoulder-duster territory. The twists end in 8mm hollow balls, their bulk keeps the earrings swinging during wear in a pendulum style, adding to their statement-making effect. The springy hinged French backs that hold the earrings securely in place have been accented with matching domed drops, a thoughtful finishing touch. The 14 karat yellow gold earrings are in like-new condition and estate priced at $315.00 CAD. Stock #426-00113.

10kt. yellow gold hand ring, size 5 1/2, 3.8 grams. $263.00 CAD. 401-00170

As dealers of antique, vintage, and estate jewellery, we get our fair share of variety when it comes to unusual designs and styles. I’m really not quite sure what to make out of this one. Attractive, not exactly; interesting, fun, and off the wall, absolutely. The “Alien” hand ring is something no one here has ever encountered before. We’re not sure who made this bizarre ring, how old it is, or why it’s modeled after a left hand. Everyone on staff here who sees it is strangely compelled to try it on and then giggles a little. Solid construction, with a weight of 3.8 grams in a finger size 5 1/2. This ring can be made larger or smaller by a size or two if required. Weird as it is, I think this one will be a big hit and won’t stick around very long. It is estate priced at $263.00 CAD. Stock #401-00170.


18kt. diamond ring 0.25ct. tw. SI1-H, 8.0gr., size 11 1/2. $1,000.00 CAD. 116-00054.

A ring like this could be the gateway jewellery item for the gentleman looking to add some tasteful bling to their jewellery wardrobe without breaking the bank. High quality doesn’t mean high price if you’re considering an estate item at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers. This ring has been crafted from premium 18 karat yellow and nice quality natural diamonds. The masculine design features a white gold bezel set round brilliant cut diamond of SI clarity and H colour. The 6 channel set, step cut rectangular diamonds are all of very good VS-H quality. This ring is in perfect condition looking practically unworn. The size can be adjusted up or down a couple of sizes if required. If you had to purchase an empty setting of similar quality, you’d spend more than our price for this complete diamond ring. Estate price is just $1,000.00 CAD. Stock #116-00054.

The studs are in like-new condition and come equipped with medium-weight friction backs. Estate price $560.00 CAD. Stock #151-00157.
