It just made sense!

We've always had an extensive vintage costume jewelry collection. Over the years we have worn some pieces, let our kids play dress up with them, sometimes broke them (gasp!), but we knew for sure that we needed to share our pieces. It is our mission to match each individual piece with someone who will love it - a forever friend! We want you to be as captivated with vintage jewelry as we are. Let our pieces do that for you and maybe you will find your match!

    We are the two sisters behind BeckoningBeefyGems. The name came from the first part of Becky, and Beth's nickname is Beefy. We both work part time, and are full time moms. We've loved vintage jewelry since childhood, thus our hobby was born.

Shop policies

Welcome to BeckoningBeefyGems! We are two sisters that love everything that is vintage costume jewelry and ephemera. All of our pieces are found as-is, but have been cleaned thoroughly so as to not remove any original patina, and repaired if necessary. I find it rather distasteful to have purchased a vintage piece and find obvious dirt or hair, so we have removed that for you. Although they do not make costume jewelry like they used to, please understand that the nature of vintage jewelry is imperfect and fragile. Allow our jewelry to take you back to another era!
