Have you noticed the recent trend in vintage inspired jewelry pieces? Why buy mass manufactured reproductions when you can get the real thing at affordable prices here at VINTAGE IS VOGUE?

It truly is a neat concept that you can fall in love with a piece that lived through a previous owners life experiences, pre-loved for whatever reason, was a part of a certain eras jewelry box, and is now in your hands for a second life in the new millennium.

If you are new to buying vintage jewelry, please keep in mind that each piece is a treasure that is unique and individual. Tiny flaws are part of the character of the item and are part of a story from the past. Most vintage items listed in this shop have been previously owned. These special and unique pieces may show imperfections, tarnish, or signs of wear. Many vintage buyers find this look desirable, as do those in the world of style and fashion.

Please remember that on average these pieces are about 50 years old. Most have some form of general wear from use and age. I carefully clean and repair all items as much as possible.

Rarely is anything sold in less than Very Good to Excellent condition. All major flaws are mentioned in the Item Description and five photos are provided with each item listed which offers even further visual description.
