Presenting Decades of Classic Costume Jewelry
About Jackie's Gems
Our Service PledgeWe respond to all orders promptly and courteously and we guarantee that our items are as described.
About UsMy shop has lots of vintage jewelry some of which I have collected over the years, and I am always adding more. I also have the occasional vintage purse, jewelry book, or other vintage collectible. My goal is to offer my customers a variety of traditional and not so traditional items in all price ranges. I like to think there is something for everyone at Jackie's Gems. Please keep in mind that I am always open to reasonable offers. On buying trips, I search out the unusual and unique; I love jewelry with a story and that draws me to sometimes quirky handmade pieces from the past. I also love the elegance of Trifari, Coro, Schiaparelli, and Hattie Carnegie rhinestone pieces (to name just a few of the greats). I am so happy when I find a bargain and I like to pass my good fortune along to my customers so I try to keep my prices reasonable.
I ship quickly, and offer first class or priority mail with tracking and insurance. Your treasures will arrive promptly, and well packed for safe delivery. I do request that international shoppers check the box for the international shipping rate. No surprise, but international shipping costs more, and I like to offer all the available options such as tracking and insurance so that your items arrive safely.
A little about me: collecting jewelry has been my hobby for a very long time, since I was a little girl and vintage jewelry wasn't considered vintage! I have written two books that were published by Collector Books (Classic American Costume Jewelry, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2). I have also written numerous articles that range in subject from Elzac to sea shell jewelry. Before their hiatus, I was a member of both the VFCJ and CJCI and published articles in both of their journals.
