Announcement   It's finally summer and Crows Nest Antiques will be taking a much needed vacation. I will leave the shop open and continue to list, but I will be unable to ship any purchases until July 3rd. I'll be treasure hunting while away, so check in and see if I've found your heart's desire! The wonderful world of vintage costume jewelry is like a walk through history. The events of the day played a huge part in how jewelry was designed and what materials were used. Each piece also has a personal history, like the lovely brooch I purchased from an elderly woman who had first worn it to her high school prom. Carefully designed and often crafted by hand, vintage costume jewelry is art that you can wear, enjoy and create your own memories with.

    I started my venture into vintage jewelry with the purchase of a pink crystal Vendome necklace from a kiosk at the local mall. I had never had a big interest in any kind of jewelry but this was something special and I just had to have it.

Shop policies

Vintage is equal to pre-owned and used. Given that, I use the following terms for condition: excellent vintage (no obvious defects, very minor wear); very good vintage (wear can be seen with the naked eye, does not significantly affect look of piece); good vintage (one or more flaws are noticeable, piece is still attractive and suitable for wear). I do attempt to describe any defects or flaws. Pictures are a big part of an item's description and buyers should view all photos carefully.
