Piano jewelry ranges from simple designs to impressively detailed and incredibly beautiful pieces.
Pianos in my collection:
This is a pewter pin/jewelry box, earring, and necklace set. The lid has a pin and clasp on the reverse. The box holds a necklace with a piano charm. The lid holds a pair of piano earrings which can be removed and worn. The piano pin measures 1 1/4" across by 1 1/2" long.
On the far left is a little silver spinet piano. It came off my aunt's charm bracelet from the 1950s or so and measures 1/2" across by 3/8" high. Next to it is a little metal white and gold painted spinet piano miniature that measures 1/2" across and high. Next to that is a sterling silver James Avery piano charm. On the far right is a black enamel piano pin that measures 1" across.
Pianos not in my collection:
These beautiful little piano pendants are made of gold with nice scroll work, inlaid with precious stones and pearls. The first one is 18K gold. The second one is 10K gold. They have great attention to detail, from the pearlized keys with filigreed music stand to the hinged top and interior. Standing on tri-claw footed legs, the pianos are decorated with pearls and stones of sapphire, ruby, garnet, coral, and Persian turquoise. The keyboard is almost 3/4" across. Overall, the piano is 1" long and 1/2" high, for a total weight of 9.4 grams.
This very unique vintage 14K gold charm has excellent detailing with four rubies set into the top of the piano and a front lid that opens to reveal a set of piano keys. It weighs 11 grams and measures 5/8" high by 7/8" across.
This beautiful charm is an estate item dating to the 1960s. It's not just a flat charm: the piano is beautifully detailed and stands away from the disk it's mounted on. The baby grand piano has a gemstone keyboard with four genuine gems - one turquoise, two rubies, and one blue sapphire. The disk measures 1" in diameter and the piece is 14K yellow gold weighing 6.5 grams. Behind the piano the disk has a textured finish which adds depth and dimension.
On the left is a vintage sterling charm of an angel playing the piano. It is 7/8" high by 1" long by 9/16" across. The sterling silver piano charm on the right measures 1/2" across.
On the left is a vintage piano pin. The rhinestone pin on the right has a silvertone base and the piano lid is studded with aurora borealis crystals, which reflect all pastel colors. It measures approximately 1 1/4" by 1".
This piano charm is circa 1950. It is a 14K yellow gold charm of an upright piano. The keyboard lid opens and closes. This piano measures 3/4" by 3/8".
This old charm measures a bit over 1/2" across. It appears to be sterling and is very well made with impressive detail. The top opens and closes.
