You can find many vintage trendy jewelry pieces here in my shop right from the comfort of your home. No driving from store to store, no fighting traffic, no searching for a parking space, no standing in line to pay, and it's even delivered right to your door! What's an easier way to shop? I am delighted to do the searching for you.

Relax and take a few minutes to browse my shop of unique vintage costume and antique jewelry from the late 1800s to 1992, as well as vintage sterling silver jewelry, and vintage accessories. I choose each item with care and have been selling on Etsy since 2009. I have excellent customer reviews so you can buy with confidence. You are invited to read my reviews for reference.

All items are also available to international buyers worldwide. Convo me with your interest so I can give you shipping rate and insurance to your country. Hawaii/Alaska buyers, should also convo me for shipping and insurance prior to purchase. I do recommend for U.S. and international buyers that you purchase insurance, especially international buyers. I am not responsible for damage, thefts or loss in U.S. or International mail so no refunds will be given by me in such cases. However, if you purchased insurance I will gladly file the claim for you once I am notified by you. You are responsible for payment of any customs charges in your country.

I am happy to hold an item for you for a maximum of 48 hrs. I cannot hold it any longer since it keeps the item from being sold should you change your mind. I have had this happen too many times.

Please keep in mind that the items I sell are pre-owned and pre-worn so please do not expect items to be perfect. There may be minor flaws such as tiny nics in enamel, or some discoloration of metal. Anything worth mentioning will be described in my listing. I don't sell anything with major damage. There also may be a slight color variation between the actual item and the pictured item due to lighting and flash when taking pictures. However, I try to be as accurate as possible with my pictures and descriptions. Also keep in mind that the material that vintage bracelets and necklaces are strung on are often very old and become brittle or rotten. Use care when wearing. Should an item accidentally break, you can easily restring it using a similar stretch cord or string. I will not be responsible for breakage of an item. When restringing it is best to use a thin chain for glass beads on necklaces since glass will cut through string.

My shipping prices are kept low so that you can save. I always ship the next business day when possible, and am happy to combine shipping. Please convo me prior to checkout so I can change the listing to the total combined rate. Also, to help you save I don't ship in fancy gift wrapped boxes, but do wrap and ship securely using colorful tissue paper, bubble wrap, and heavy brown envelopes. However, if an item is delicate I will use a box along with tissue paper and bubble wrap. This way of shipping has worked very well, keeps my overhead low, and helps you save on shipping by decreasing the weight.

If you have any questions about my listed items or if you are looking for something in particular, please don't hesitate to contact me. I may have it in my unlisted inventory and would be happy to list it for you. The sections on the left of my shop page are for the convenience of narrowing your search, or you can type exactly what you are looking for in my shop in space by the blue "Search" button such as a designer's name, i.e., Crown Trifari, Dior, Givenchy, or just simple words like gold tone, pink, chain link, glass necklace.

Thank you for visiting and come back often. I list additional items daily. I am always happy to provide the very best customer service to you that I can. My goal is for you to have a hassle-free shopping experience with me. If you are not happy with a purchase, please contact me. I will do my best to work with you to have a mutually beneficial transaction.

2 0 1 5 F A S H I O N A N D J E W E L R Y T R E N D S:

Step right onto the Groovy Safari Bus with Tribal Chic and Hippie Shake fashions. Big, bold, and outrageous whether it be prints or jewelry!. Piles of rings, bracelets and body jewelry, mismatched jewelry including earrings, large statement jewelry is still in, Victorian and Etruscan revival 1940s pieces are big and bold, large 1980s jewelry styles are back in the spotlight, and 1960s revival medieval themes...romantic gothic.

TRIBAL CHIC -

Spring/Summer/Fall 2015 - Think safari....Sub-Saharan vivacity....One planet, One Tribe: The bold, graphic prints and simple shapes are a gutsier take on the other ethnic trends of last season. More bold than whimsical boho; less contrived than the jingly coins and bejewelled scarves of the global nomad. Tribal is back and hot featuring Afro-pop looks with lots of linen, batik, geometric tribal prints, brightly colored African fabrics, mix and match animal and colorist prints, trendy afro-clutch purses and bags with flowing tassles, luxe leather purses, , wide, low slung leather belts, revisited 1970's safari jackets, a khaki nod to military style alongside nautical accents, acid wash streaked jeans, eco-fashionable brass, aluminum, bone and leather jewelry. The bigger the better!

HIPPIE SHAKE AND BOHO CHIC -

Spring/Summer 2015: Late 1960s-early 1970s boho chic is back in all its trippy, psychedelic glory for spring with its carefree, easy-going, free-spirited attitude. We’re not talking ripped jeans and a tattered t- shirt. This version of hippie chic is a little more glam than that! Haute hippie! But we are taking it back to Woodstock with fringed and crocheted clothes and purses, along with maxi dresses, floor-skimming gypsy skirts, handkerchief-hemmed dresses, loose cotton tunics, floaty trapeze dresses, billowy kaftans, bell bottom and flared at the knee pants, high-waisted pants, puffed Ballet Russes-print sleeves, stone-embellished halter tops, crop tops, vibrant tie-dye patterns, fabrics – like tissue paper-thin silks and wispy chiffons which allow the seductive swishes when in movement, retro scarf motifs, paisleys, geometrics, folksy florals, and don’t forget the gladiator sandals, clogs, platforms or wedgies, chunky-heel boots, low slung chunky woven belts or beaded crocheted belts, floppy hats, long rows or colorful beads or layers of chains.

Fall 2015: Much of the same style, but add mix-and-match wool and velvet patchwork skirts and dresses, bold leather jackets, plush suede accents, capes, ponchos and hobo bags all with lots of tassels, embroidered and fringed vests, sheepskin coats, army jackets, military accents in navy or khaki.

BRACELETS - Chunky charm bracelets or stackable bangle bracelets, glitzy sparkly bracelets, large, wide arm candy cuffs, slave bracelets, chunky, wide transparent acrylic or wood bracelets.

RINGS - Large, oversized rings - three or four per hand

NECKLACES - Massive necklaces - Chokers and collar necklaces are hot now - the bigger the better, very long pendant necklaces, huge beaded bibs, metallic and mirrored necklaces, long lightweight and beaded necklaces that can be used as layering pieces....many, many layers....over the top is the goal; big, chunky vibrantly colored beaded necklaces, very large crystal cabochons hung simply around the neck on a leather thong...be outrageously creative.

EARRINGS - Huge pendant earrings and mismatched earrings are in.

CLASSICS - Always in are classy and elegant pieces, estate earrings....small, timeless bobs and elegant dangles.
