About

How the Hippo became Opulent.

It all started when Sammy had problem finding affordable vintage costume jewelry to match her vintage garments. She decided to take matters into her own hands one fine day in October 2011, with goals to achieve: to bring back the true value of jewelry and to educate people about authentic vintage jewelry.

The shop's name is chosen because "opulent" refers to all things rich and luxurious, and this word describes the owner's love for gold and rhinestones perfectly. The word "hippo" was chosen because it represents the owner quite well and we’d like to think that we’re HUGE about vintage costume jewelry! The combination of both words also hints what you can find in this shop; vintage costume jewelry pieces in luxurious tones with sparkly rhinestones and figural animal pieces!

We select pieces that are uniquely wearable for all and we particularly adore large, conversation-starting pieces. We aim to offer gorgeous, high-quality vintage costume jewelry to anyone who wants them to last a few lifetimes and more.
