Exquisite Vintage Jewels, Gifts and Divine Engagement Rings
There is a saying that goes ... Find a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life. Its true. I love what I do passionately and I'm excited to go to work at Sweet Heirloom Vintage every single day and usually well into the night.
I'm inspired by the sheer delight and serendipity of sourcing and curating Sweet Heirloom Vintage. Inspiration comes from every exquisite little detail, every captivating interaction with light and every trace of the artisan who crafted the piece decades or a century ago.
I love taking images in the soft setting sunlight which gently caresses vintage gold and coaxes it into a luminous radiant living thing. Nothing captures the antique charm of a vintage cut diamond like the soft light. The big facets on vintage diamonds come to life and blast rainbow shards of colour when they are illuminated by warm setting sunlight.
A woman can fall in love with a new engagement ring and 100 years later another woman can fall in love with the very same ring that is now antique. The odds are a million to one but it happens every day at Sweet Heirloom Vintage. I love my job!
