Vintage sterling vermeil (gold-washed) parure. Circa 1950. This lovely set was manufactured by the Bond Boyd Company, a family business founded in Toronto (Ontario) in the 1940’s. They sold dainty sterling and vermeil jewellery with the corporate woman in mind. Each piece of this set is marked on the back with the words “Sterling” and “Bond Boyd”. The parure consists of a gold-washed sterling necklace with a shepherd’s hook clasp, a bracelet with a lobster clasp, a brooch with a rollover clasp, and a pair of screw-back earrings. Each piece is formed by pairs of extremely detailed, stylized leaves.
Necklace: 17 inches (43.5 cm) long, 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide;
Bracelet: 7½ inches (19 cm) long, 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide;
Brooch: 1 and 3/8 inches (3.5 cm) in diameter;
Earrings: 1 inch (2.5 cm) long, ¾ inch (2 cm) wide.
This set was very gently used and remains shiny and unscratched. There is some wear to the gold on the inside of the necklace and bracelet where they would have come in contact with the wearer’s skin. However, the outside still looks brand new and untouched. The set would make a lovely addition to a vintage jewellery collection.
