Style Spotlight - Vintage Jewellery
Vintage jewellery will always have a special place in my heart - it is in fact where my love of vintage first started. I'll always remember playing dress-up in my Auntie Betty's bedroom. A huge dressing table stacked with drawers full of beads, brooches and all things sparkly. I had no idea at the time but I was creating my glamorous regal princess fantasy with original vintage costume jewellery and I couldn't get enough of it! She passed when I was 11 and her gift to me was her boxes of vintage jewellery which I treasured and began to collect more of in my teenage years.
Collecting led to selling and as My Vintage has grown; so to has my love of vintage jewellery. We have so many stunning pieces no matter what your style and I just love how each vintage era has it's own iconic accessory styles and of course how much of it can still look super contemporary if styled just right. Vintage jewellery is also an amazing choice for gifts. A special and unique piece is such a thoughtful present and can also be very inexpensive. We have pieces of original vintage jewellery from only £8 so you don't have to spend a fortune to get something really special.
This week I really wanted to showcase some of my favourite pieces of vintage jewellery that is currently available from My Vintage. All these items are in stock as this blog goes live but they won't hang around forever! We also have tonnes more jewellery that isn't even on the website yet. Feel free to message me via email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are looking for something in particular or pop into the shop to find even more amazing bygone treasures.
But for now, let me show you some of my absolute favourites in a variety of styles, finishes and eras.
1950s Vintage Rhinestone Expansion Bracelet - £45
I simply love this high quality vintage 1950s bracelet. Triple rows of crystal glass rhinestones in green and clear that are all prong set into an expandable bright silver stainless steel cuff. In excellent vintage condition, this bracelet still retains all its original glamour and style. The bracelet measures 15mm wide and will fit most wrist sizes, it measures up to 8" around the inside when stretched. It is stamped inside "Empire Made" so was made in Hong Kong when it was still a British colony. The stones are all original, secure in their settings with no yellowing and they sparkle like crazy! Perfect for a vintage wedding, vintage gift or just a beautiful accessory for your vintage costume jewellery collection.
