Metal Objects I Have Known and Loved

In a frenzy of holiday vintage tinkering, I have been spending a lot of time pawing through drawers of my beloved junk. These 4 pieces speak to me...Why?

Because....
Top left (belt buckle) is gold tone with leafy vines and a flowery detail in the middle.
Top right (pendant) is big and bold and reminds me of Napoleon. See?
Bottom left (medal?) has a crown. Duh.
Bottom right (buckle) reminds me of a wrought iron gate in France.
Which one is your favorite and why? Please advise!

I must say I am fond of the top left one. Geometrically clean. Nice finish to see the details. The center detail could be delicate as a flower or modern for its symmetry. Hope this helps...nice collection...Smiles...Renee

Oh how I do love an ornate metal piece! Thanks for sharing these-they are marvelous! My fave is the regal "Napoleon"-esque pendant; so grand!

I love them all but the bottom right has that "je ne sais quoi".
I have a huge St George & the dragon like the top right. When I put it on I get an overwhelming urge to rap!

Top left. I like the organic feel to it -- it's leafy, flowery-ness.
What are you making?

I like the one with the crown. Very regal. They are all fantastic though.

I'm partial to the crown. I have a pin just like it of white rhinestones.
