About UsWelcome to Past Perfection Vintage Costume Jewelry! I have been a collector of costume jewelry since the early 1980s and a seller for 14 years. In my first years as a dealer I had a case in an antique mall but found I liked selling on-line so opened up my own web site and then opened my Ruby Lane shop in 2006.
As a long-time collector of the jewelry made by DeLizza & Elster, commonly called Juliana jewelry, I love to put together sets and parures and at Past Perfection, you may find the perfect piece to complete one of yours.
The pieces I list in my Ruby Lane shop are all hand-picked for quality, desirability and condition and it is my hope you will love wearing them as much as I loved finding them! I spend hours every weekend, sometimes on the road as early as 4:00 a.m. to purchase these treasures. I do not buy on-line or box lots because I like to inspect my items carefully in person to make sure the condition meets my standards.
I am a long-standing and proud member of jewelry organizations such as Jewel Collect, CJCI (Costume Jewelry Collectors International) and Discovering Juliana Jewelry, all of which promote the education of vintage costume jewelry in its many forms and eras. Many pieces sold here and in my own collection have been featured in jewelry reference books. In addition, it was my collection of DeLizza and Elster jewelry that brought it to the attention of collectors. I also was the person who "found" Frank DeLizza.
Items added daily to my Ruby Lane shop. I combine items for savings on shipping.
I also have an Etsy shop where I will be adding single earrings needing mates, rhinestones, pieces for crafts and the occasional jewelry lot. The link to the shop is on my links page.
