Why Choose Vintage Costume Jewelry?
The quality and plating standards of vintage costume jewelry were much higher than today's costume jewelry, which means most pieces were triple plated or gold filled. Many jewels from decade's past have remained in pristene condition thanks to their high quality and gorgeous craftsmanship. Not to mention, the majority of costume jewelry made today is directly inspired from vintage styles and silhouettes!
The Selection Process
Each item is hand selected for quality and aesthetic while still keeping current-day trends in mind. We visit the best vintage, antique and consignment venues across the country including locations like Dallas, New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Our costume jewelry selection spans the 1940's to the 1990's and features notable designers from each decade like: Monet, Trifari, Coro, Napier and Anne Klein.
After researching each item to ensure authenticity, we are able to identify the designer and the decade it was created in. This includes determining if certain collections were limited additions or the rarity of specific materials. Then, after taking into account the overall quality, a price is decided upon. Everything is cleaned, polished and inspected for imperfections before arriving at your front door.
Caring for Vintage Jewelry
We hope you can appreciate the natural patina of vintage costume jewelry. While we always try to find pieces in excellent condition, it is rare to come across anything that has not been previously loved. When caring for your vintage and antique jewelry, we recommend storing items in individual pouches to prevent scuffing or unnecessary wear and tear. Showering, swimming or working out while wearing any jewelry is not recommended.
