Gem's Vintage Gems...that says it all!
When I think way back, I remember even as a kid I loved poking around in my dad's workshop in the basement. Old stuff everywhere, rings of ancient keys hanging from beams in the roof, and big old bass drum from a 1930's high school marching band under the stairs, a coffee mill, tools.....And the hay loft over the horse stables (then my grandparents' garage) yielded another treasure trove. A wheel of fortune from a carnival, a screwing piano stool, bottles galore. I loved the time travel quality of handling old things. Somewhere along the line, the passion became vintage art, furniture, hats and jewelry. Once you get the collecting bug, it is a short jump to opening a shop to share the love!
At Gem's Vintage Gems, you'll find the fabulous style and panache of vintage hats from the 30's-60's, as well as an eclectic collection of jewelry from the 20's-80's, with a special love for 70's Asian-inspired pieces. Come on in and enjoy browsing my collection of jewelry by designers including Selro, Florenza, ART, Vendome, Castlecliff, Kenneth Lane, Weiss, Trifari, Coro, Har, Hobe, Goldette as well as vintage hats from designers Evelyn Varon, Norman Paulvin, Mr. John, Norman Durand and more. (Oh, for the days when a woman didn't leave the house without a hat!)
A distinctive and unique vintage piece elevates an outfit into the sensational! From classic to edgy, I'm sure you'll find the perfect finishing touch, or a great addition to your collection, at Gem's Vintage Gems.

Frequently asked questions
United Kingdom Import VAT fees
Import fees are the responsibility of the buyer. True value is marked on all customs forms and copy of invoice is included in the package.
For goods with a value that exceed £15, you will have to pay 20% import VAT plus an £8 Royal Mail handling fee.
Etsy has added information to our listings that says "VAT is included in the price (where applicable.)" Be aware that "where applicable" means shops that are VAT registered to collect and remit VAT. This does not apply to my shop. As a U.S. seller I am not registered to collect UK VAT.
