For the Love of Vintage Jewelry

We all know that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. But what about emeralds, pearls, and sparkly gems? My motto: Anything goes!

Steps to Stylish Vintage Jewels:

1. Make sure all the stones are secure. Time can loosen the setting and the glue can come un-glued.
2. Check for clarity. Even vintage faux gems can get cloudy with age.
3. The finish on faux pearls tends to chip and crack over time. Be sure to roll each pearl over to check it from every angle!
4. Be prepared to re-string! Sometimes the pearls are in amazing condition, but the string is weak.

Vintage jewelry makes great, affordable accessories! Add a little bling without breaking the bank!!
