Chic Treasures from an Era Long Ago
I am so inspired by vintage jewelry since most are one of a kind. Even though there can be some special unsigned pieces, one can be enthused to create captivating fashion statements with vintage jewelry!
Check out some items that I purchased off of eBay recently. Aren't they cute? I can't wait to wear them!!! I'm really getting into copper lately - such a beautiful metal! It will spruce up any garment since the cinnamon color will be in for the Spring!!!
The lot of 9 vintage pieces includes signed copper earrings from the Renoir, Matisse lines. These pieces date back to the 1940s and 1950s. Also, included were 3 cuff bracelets, 1 Elizabeth II bracelet, a matching set of cuff necklace, bracelet and earrings, and an enamel copper ring signed Austria.
The next photo showcases a rose belt buckle of which I am going to have my mother create one of her fabulous masterpieces. I will share the finished product once she's done. In addition, I have another cuff, pair of earrings, and a chain necklace.
I got all of these pieces for $68.99 (includes shipping)! What a steal, huh?
I will rock a lot of these pieces with my garments on future posts. So y'all come back to check them out - ok!?!?! :)
You can always find better bargains for vintage jewelry on online bidding sites. Wear your vintage jewelry with modern or traditional clothing. Vintage jewelry pieces can go with a variety of trends or just create your own fashion uniqueness!
