In today’s massive understatement, its a bit of an intense time we are living in, no? Let’s be sure we make time to enjoy the small pleasures.
Not surprisingly, today I’m focusing on the tiny treasures that are vintage costume jewelry. I’m looking at pieces from the golden age of American costume jewelry, the 1940’s and 1950’s.
Here are some reasons why:
- The Sparkle
Vintage rhinestones are high quality faceted Czech glass crystals set on a foil backing. The colors are deep and rich and the shine is dazzling.
- The Designs
When high fashion designers from Chanel in the 1920’s to Dior in the 50’s created costume jewelry, it gained legitimacy as an art form.
- The Quality
The craftsmanship of vintage costume jewelry is incredible. The stones are cut and prong set exactly like fine jewelry and the finishes are triple plated so they wear really well over time.
- The Style
Each piece is a mini work of art.
- The Fun
There is playfulness, wit and joy in vintage costume jewelry.
- The Uniqueness
Wear one of these beauties and bring a one of a kind element to whatever else you wear
