Part of the joy of dealing with vintage jewelry has been in learning to photograph the pieces. I've lost so many of my best photos through the years that now I save all of them. I love looking back and remembering the wonderful treasures that have passed through my hands. My rule for myself has always been that I can have anything I want and can afford as long as I am willing to put a price tag on, most eventually leave me, but I enjoy them while they are mine, and when they go, I buy something new. :) And, I keep the photos.

    I also love the idea of your rule, but I have a hard time looking at my sold files.
    I sell all kinds of stuff but the jewelry at least the special ones I have sold was not because I wanted to. In fact every time a old post here on CW comes up of a piece I sold I get sad:( I have the same fail proof remedy as you.............Buying New, and for each piece that sold I like to get 3. You take great pictures if you don't mind me asking whats your secret?

    Sweet, I agree with the documentation of discoveries. I started to send photos of my finds to my sister, then found it was a great way not to become a hoarder. (I would keep everything)
    I would also love some photo tips. As you can see from my postings I need some advise!
