About MaejeanVintage

Sales 27,919
On Etsy since 2010

Our passion is jewelry of the past.

Maejean Vintage is owned by a team of GIA Graduate Gemologist sisters, Laura Mae & Amanda Jean, out of their studio in Lancaster, PA. MJV offers genuine vintage & antique items from the 1800s - late 1980s, including timeless pieces from the Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco, and Mid Century eras.

Vintage items are special because they each have their own history. We love imagining the stories behind the unique pieces and unraveling as much of the history as we can through research. Did this Art Deco filigree ring belong to a 1920s flapper, fighting for women’s suffrage? Was this 1940s locket once given to a WWII soldier’s sweetheart before he left for war? We hope you find these one of a kind pieces as special as we do!

We recently unveiled a line of vintage-inspired earrings featuring each month’s birthstone. Each pair of earrings, which are available in white & yellow gold, are made from recycled gold and ethically sourced gems.

Many gemstones on the market are treated or enhanced in some way. It is estimated that up to 80% of gems have had treatment. Gem treatments have occurred for centuries, including heat treatment which is one of the most common. Gemstone treatment is considered to be any process conducted by man beyond cutting and polishing a gem which can improve the appearance and durability. Please assume gemstones potentially have been treated unless the listing specifically notes otherwise. We always disclose all information to the best of our knowledge!

Pearls: Unless specifically noted in listing, all pearls are assumed to be cultured. In order to separate natural from cultured, pearls need to be sent to a laboratory. According to GIA, "Microradiography is the only definitive non-destructive way of seeing the internal structure of pearls".

Although vintage and antique jewelry has already stood the test of time, it deserves special care. We recommend removing jewelry prior to hand washing, vigorous activity, and prior to sleeping. Please note that some gemstones such as opals and pearls are particularly fragile and require extra care and precaution. Please take your occupation / lifestyle into account to help decide what kind of jewelry is best suited for you. If you would like any assistance with selecting a piece durable for your particular needs, please message us. We stand behind our jewelry 100% and guarantee it to be exactly as stated in the listing. After we ship the piece out, it is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure proper care, maintenance, and possible repairs. We advise that jewelry worn frequently be inspected by a trusted jeweler every six months. This is a good preventative measure to confirm all prongs are intact and gemstones are secure.

Items stated as children’s / baby jewelry should only be worn by young children under close adult supervision. Small items may present a choking hazard to children. Baby rings were often worn for special events such as baptism or photoshoots, and were taken off right after.

Gemstone weights are measured with stones in mounts, using size gauges and MM measurements, unless otherwise noted. For gemstone weights to be 100% accurate, the gemstone must be removed from the setting and weighed on a scale. Please note that our measurements are approximate.

All of our jewelry is shot in daylight equivalent light. Please be aware that the appearance of colors can vary based upon your monitor & display settings. We always try to photograph & describe colors to the best of our ability.

Listings include a complimentary MJV logo gift box, as shown in last photos in listings. All other boxes pictured are for display only. Listings include the single item depicted and described. Some photos may show pieces next to additional jewelry for comparison and size reference, which are not included, but may be available for sale separately.

Frequently asked questions

Can I see your items in person?

As much as we would love to meet you in person and show off our inventory, we do not have a brick and mortar at this time. We are always happy to send extra photos or videos to help you make your purchasing decision!

What is the difference between vintage and antique?

Typically, a vintage item is 20 years or older, while an antique item is 100 years or older. This varies depending on who you ask!

How do you know when an item dates from?

We are able to circa date pieces based on their design, style, casting methods, materials used, stone cuts, maker's marks, hallmarks, & their provenance / sources they were acquired from. We have been in the jewelry industry for over 10 years now and stand behind our pieces 100%. Both co-owners Laura Mae & Amanda Jean are GIA Graduate Gemologists and regularly attend continuing education events, and inspect each piece before it is listed in our shop.

What is a synthetic / created stone? Can it be vintage?

A created or synthetic stone contains essentially the same chemical composition & properties as its natural (genuine) counterpart, but was created by man in a lab. For the most part, created stones are typically more "perfect" than genuine gems because they are created in a controlled environment and tend to have fewer inclusions and clarity characteristics.

The first synthetic ruby was made in the late 1800s by Auguste Verneuil and was introduced to the market in 1902. The method was flame fusion, now often referred to as the Verneuil process.
