About

Plum & Olive Vintage

Hi, I am Nicole, thanks for coming here to read more about me and my shop, Plum & Olive Vintage.

I am Australian, with a Eurasian Dad, and a French Husband. As a kid, I used to love watching my Asian Grandmother putting on her beautiful jade jewellery, and as an adult, I am in awe of the sophistication and style of all things French. I would describe myself as a “Dinkum Aussie Eurasian Francophile”! Following in my Asian Grandmother’s footsteps, I have the same love of jewellery, but my interest is in sterling silver after the discovery of a severe allergy to nickel. Along with my love of Asian jade, my quirky jewellery taste has broadened to include anything art deco including marcasite, turquoise, onyx, and much more.

I have always loved hunting in op shops and antique markets for little treasures, and since I discovered online shopping many years ago, my collection of little sterling silver treasures has grown to mammoth proportions. I have for a while now been at a point where I cannot wear it all. All of my jewellery I bought not to resell but for myself to wear and every piece, regardless of price or sophistication, has appealed to my broad and quirky taste.

A few years ago, I started selling a select few items from my collection to friends and family. A friend of mine, who had bought a few pairs of my earrings, had a great idea. She invited a few of her friends for morning tea and I brought some of my jewellery collection along to sell. We had kind of a “jewellery party”. It was successful (which was a surprise to me) and I made a bit of money out of it. It started me thinking that maybe my collection could become more than just a hobby and it proved to me that other people like my quirky jewellery taste.

Because I already have a few keen customers, combined with my flair for Marketing (I am a Marketing Consultant in my other life) and the fact that I am a big fan of Etsy were the nucleus for the creation of my shop. However, it has taken a while for my shop to become a reality. At the time I had this idea, back in 2011, I created my shop front. I listed a few items, a handful of them sold, but I realised at the time that I couldn’t put in the effort the shop needed to be truly successful as I was busy with work and family, so the idea stalled for several years. It is only recently that my passion has reignited and I am fully committed to making my shop successful. Because this new, rebranded shop is only recently up and running, I have only a few items listed, but over the coming weeks, I will list more and more items so keep coming back and checking in.

Plum & Olive Vintage represents the two halves of me – plum for my Chinese heritage and olive for my close relationship with the French through my husband. I started my Etsy shop as a way of sharing my treasures with people who love the same things as I do.

When it comes to vintage pieces, I try my best to describe them accurately. However, they are vintage, which means used, and as such, may have flaws and weaknesses as well as typical wear and tear. I am not a jeweller "per se" and sell these pieces "as is". I will not accept returns on these items.
