About UsI have been an avid antique collector for over 35 years and began selling antiques at antique co-ops and shows 25 years ago. As time went on, I realized I was most passionate about the vintage and antique jewelry in my inventory. Wanting to learn more, I completed antique appraisal courses, and also, Gemology classes at the Gemological Institute of America. I graduated from GIA as an Accredited Jewelry Professional in 2009, and have continued to further my studies by attending gem & jewelry shows, workshops, and enrolling in online gemology classes. You can never learn enough in the thrilling field of vintage jewelry!
Offered is an exciting array of vintage and antique jewelry and small objects of art representing the Victorian, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco periods, along with some newer Retro and Modernist pieces. These period pieces have a special appeal with timeless beauty and remarkable craftsmanship. I strive to acquire pieces based on their aesthetic beauty, quality and rarity. There is something magical about pieces from another era, and they are as unique as the people who collect them.
I hope you enjoy perusing my collection. Please ask questions if needed. Offers are welcome and considered.
I appreciate your business and look forward to providing you with a great choice of fabulous pieces. I am always listing new items, please check back regularly.
