About

Seeking unusual and unique vintage jewelry from around the world and other wonders.

I’ve had a passion for jewelry all my life. Not just the owning of pieces but the appreciation of them as an art form. Different periods had styles that were distinctive to them but in the end they were all a vision of the artists that designed them and brought them to life to be enjoyed and hopefully handed down to generations to come. I search for pieces that you will be proud to own and I am proud to offer.

I have interests in a wide variety of periods and styles and the pieces on my site reflect this:
Victorian Periods 1837-1900 Arts & Crafts Movement 1894-1923 Art Nouveau Period 1890-1915
Edwardian Period 1901-1910 Art Deco Period 1920-1935 Retro Period 1935-1949
The Wearable Art Movement 1930-1960 Also contemporary pieces at least 20 years old.

I am a contributing member of The Silver Forum and bring many of my pieces before them for discussion and to aid in my research. I strive to find unique or rare pieces, not mass produced where you see them all over the internet.

Every piece is researched. Sometimes there is little to go by so I look for rarity, other times I find hallmarks and other identifying marks on the back that are researchable in my reference library or through the Silver Forum. This is time consuming but that is my other passion. Being able to pass on the history of a piece, who made it, where it was made anything I can find. To me, knowing this makes those pieces special by having that connection.

I buy mostly at auctions and estate sales and some pieces are from my personal collection. I love things that make me smile or go WOW when I see them for the first time and I hope you do the same.



So enjoy your visit to my shop, ask questions and hopefully you will find something you love.

    Grew up in Chappaqua, N.Y. and after college worked in Lower Manhattan for a awhile. Hated it and decided to leave the madness. Moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1969 and never looked back. I'm a desert rat now and love every moment - even when it's 110.
