About Laura's lifeintheknife

I believe that excellent quality, affordable antique jewelry can still be found by the keen eye, and I am pleased to offer my pieces at prices that are obtainable to every taste and budget. I also offer layaway on pieces over $300.

I test stones with a Presidium gem tester. As such, glass 'stones' are always listed as faux or glass, and suspected lab-created stones are identified as such in the item's description. Unmarked gold and silver is always acid tested with great care. I even test hallmarked pieces to make sure the quality is spot on when I suspect there is a chance otherwise.

I am are extremely fussy about the quality of the pieces I sell. I note all flaws and I disclose all condition issues - including repairs - honestly.

I want you to love your purchase, as well as your shopping experience with me. In providing you with jewelry that you love, and excellent customer service that you'll remember, my hopes are that you come back to me time and time again, for your antique & vintage jewelry wants and needs.
