The Nature of Vintage and Antique Jewelry
Antique and vintage jewelry is old - by definition, antique jewelry is 100 years old and older, and vintage jewelry is 20 years old and older. Our items are genuine vintage and antique pieces. Vintage and antique items will have gentle signs of wear and mild imperfections. Specific imperfections are photographed and noted in the description. We describe and evaluate pieces to the best of our ability, using research, experience and expert advice.
Items are ready to wear unless otherwise stated, but they should be treated gently and with care. If you have specific questions on how to care for a piece, just drop us a line and we'll be happy to help. We have provided general care instructions below.
All of our pieces are special. We want you to love what you bought, from start to finish. We're happy to answer any questions or provide details on any of our pieces.
