About bohemiantrading

Sales 3,030
On Etsy since 2011

Vintage lover, and passionate collector. Curious about history, design, and all things artistic.

WELCOME! Bohemian Trading Company ™ is a reflection of my long-time love affair with antique and vintage jewelry.

To many people a Bohemian is an artist or writer who leads an unconventional life…I love the idea of creating your own path.

My Etsy shop is also about a place, Bohemia. At one time, it was the great manufacturing source of costume jewelry in Central Europe. As time and boundaries changed, Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic), Germany, and Austria shared the distinction of being the essential source for American costume jewelry designers. Miriam Haskell, Schiaparelli, Trifari, Mazer, Weiss, Kramer, and Alice Caviness (to name a few) sourced their components for seasonal collections from Central Europe.

My shop is also dedicated to the idea of craftsmanship and design. As my journey in life has unfolded, I have come to realize the importance of those two concepts in my own sense of style. I embrace the idea of a visual feast!

And while styles come and go, the bones of good design and how an item is made is something that fuels my passion.

Here you will find selections to stimulate your own concept of adornment. They span a range of eras and materials. My radar is tuned to Art Deco jewelry, fine Victorian jewelry, designer signed pieces, wedding and gemstone jewelry, and sterling silver--especially Native American, Scandinavian, Mexican, and enamels. All can be found here. My taste is eclectic, so curios, postcards, and collectibles will be sprinkled into the mix.

I know I am not alone when I say my heart beats fast with excitement as I forage for treasures at flea markets. My simple goal is to convey the history and beauty of these finds so that you can make them a part of your own life’s story.

Friendly customer service is my number one priority, so thanks for reading and send a message anytime!

Additional policies and FAQs
ABOUT VINTAGE: Vintage and antique items have been used, if not loved, previously, and show their age in a variety of ways. These previously owned items can have patina, marks, imperfections, scratches, chips, cracks, glue residue, verdigris, plating loss, repairs, etc. Other than a light once over, we leave vintage jewelry in *as found* condition. It is understood that many collectors enjoy the toning that can only come with age, and cleaning or polishing can remove that patina or character. We also check that clasps work properly, ear screws function, and all stones are present. We try our best to note any condition issues, but if we miss something, and it bothers you, please bring it to our attention. YOUR HAPPINESS is very important to us!

If you wish additional photos of an item, send a message, and we will be happy to provide you with same.

VINTAGE = 25 to (75- 99) years old. ANTIQUE = 75-100 + years.

ONE OTHER NOTE: Dimensions given are approximate. If exact dimensions are required, ask for a verification, and we will be happy to double-check. DO COMPARE the measurements given with something life-size so you can judge the scale of the item, as we use enlarged photos to show detail.
