    I just love vintage and old jewelry. To me value is not a drivning force in collecting jewelry. I would go so far as to say it is of almost no importance to me. Instead I want to find pieces I like and want to wear and some pieces are from a time period that is interesting. Sometimes you can find good quality costume jewelry for almost nothing. Like these faux bead brooches that are my "snowflakes". Beautiful to be worn with a silk scarf in the summer or on something wooly and knitted in the winter. I think they are quite nice and add something that modern jewelry can't. Here are some examples from around 1950's - 80's.
    And by the way they go very well with my perfumes La vie est Belle :)

      You are absolutely right. To collect vintage jewelry is to love it, wear it, enjoy it. It shouldn’t matter is a piece is “signed” or not. The jewelry I love most never had a signature...ever!
      Pearls are purity. These are so lovely! The four tier piece with the glowing green cabochon is gorgeous! I have no pearl jewelry ....until just recently...will post next week.
      Thank you for reminding us the reason for collecting vintage :)

      Probably from the 50's and 60's when beads were so popular, You never seem to go wrong buying pearls as they are always as beautiful as they are eternal !~

      So pretty! I love the one w/the green cab. Pearls are so lovely and you have some sweet examples.
