Our Service PledgeWe respond to all orders within 24 hours. I guarantee the quality and authenticity of all my items.
About UsMy name is Loretta and Welcome to Vintage Affliction. I remember dressing up in my Grandma's clothes, heels and jewelry and I felt so pretty. My Mom would tell you I have had an Affliction to Jewelry since birth. Vintage and Antique Jewelry are an important piece of our past. High quality jewelry was made for the average person to afford in those days. Yet that very same jewelry has stood the test of time. You will find that the items in my shop are similar to what I collect and cherish. Some items I have owned and wore. So I have sentimental feelings for many of the items I sell. My home is filled with treasures from my family. Heirlooms that I wouldn't part with in a million years. My Shop Icon is my tree from 2009. My Grandma's Star adorns the top and is well over 60 years old. The mirror belongs to my Great Grandma, 150+ years old and my whole home is decorated with Family Treasures. So I live this life and hope to give you the wonderful chance to find your treasures here.
I have spent years collecting and studying vintage jewelry. It started out by wanting to know more about who manufactured the items I cherish. That led to me being able to start my own private collections. I love and adore Chatelaines, Guilloche, Micro Mosaic, Book Chain Bracelets and Necklaces, Zuni, Cameo's, Lockets and I could go on forever.
I have studied from books and belong to several Estate Auction sites that contact me for private viewing prior to the opening of an Auction or Estate Sale. They have been an incredible tool for learning what is "hot" in the collection area to what is going out of style. Even here on Ruby Lane, as it gives you such great information and time and time again my search engines brought me here to give me advice, opinions and views from experts in the fields.
I have met wonderful new friends here at Ruby Lane. Getting an Email from a Customer to tell me "how beautiful this brooch is!" or "This Porcelain is perfect and hard to find that way" to "Thanks, I will be back, your a favorite seller" - Those make my day. Customer Service and Satisfaction is my top priority. After all, I want you to rush in to open that package and wish I could see the twinkle in your eye as you look over the piece you bought. Then watch you as you try it on. I bet you will look like a princess.
Thank you so much for allowing me to find and sell Vintage items.
