Albert Weiss, Eisenberg, D & E Juliana, Alice Caviness, Eugene, Boucher, Vendome, Elsa Schiaparelli, Miriam Haskell, Hattie Carnegie, DeMario, Vrba, Hagler Â… any who love vintage costume jewelry are excited by these stellar designer names, so well-known from the stylish and sophisticated Art Deco period to the glamour of the 1950’s and early 60’s and through to the lush and extravagant 1980’s. Like many other people I know who cherish vintage costume jewelry, my lifelong passion for it was first nurtured while, as a very young child, I spent countless hours exploring the sparkling and gleaming wonders inside my dear mother's, and aunt's, and grandmother's jewelry boxes. The pleasure of those childhood memories, touching, imagining, and enjoying beautiful things has remained with me into adulthood, where my love of spectacular vintage fakes has grown into a love for antiques and good art. Now, a college professor by vocation, by avocation I am a collector and spend many enjoyable hours reading about and studying vintage costume jewelry. I search out and research, one by one, each of the lovely pieces I offer in my shop. I have chosen for you, only those items I would buy for myself and each of the beautiful confections deserves to be treasured, worn, and admired once again, as they were so many years ago. "Encore!" the shop name, expresses my dedication to seeing these wonderful old pieces brought back to glitter and gleam once again with our fashions of today. Perhaps one or two pieces of these fabulous vintage delights would be just right for your enjoyment?
