About Us
Welcome to Traces of Time.
I have been an avid antique collector for over 30 years and began selling antiques at antique co-ops 22 years ago. Offered is an exciting array of vintage and antique jewelry and decorative arts representing the Victorian, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco periods, along with, the Aesthetic and Arts & Crafts movements. These period pieces have a special appeal with timeless beauty and remarkable craftsmanship. I strive to acquire pieces based on their aesthetic beauty and rarity, for my customers to adorn themselves with, or, enjoy in their living environment. 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. I am open to considering offers and layaways are welcome.

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.

Note: I have recently become interested in vintage pieces from later time periods (40's-70's), and will be adding these to my jewelry collection. This includes Mexican, Native American, European, and Middle Eastern sterling silver pieces.


I received a very beautiful antique ring today from your seller
Robin Ray of Time After Time, Traces of Time. Ms. Ray was an
absolute delight to deal with from start to finish, and my ring
was exactly as she described on her site. It arrived in a ring
box gift wrapped in gold with a lovely ribbon. I am looking
forward to being a repeat customer, as she has many gorgeous
items for sale and I know I will receive the same excellent
service. Sincerely, Janice

Hi Robin: Just wanted to let you know that the necklace arrived
today and it is even better in person! I collect Peruzzi and the
quality of this is every bit as good--who knows, might even be
Peruzzi. Anyway, I love it.


Hi Robin, I wanted to let you know that the pin arrived today
and I just adore it. Thank you so much for the superb packaging.
It took awhile to reach me because it had to be forwarded from my
Michigan address to my Florida address. Anyway, thanks so much.
Warmest Regards, Beth

Dear Robin,

I have received the Victorian repousse brooch and the Victorian
mourning brooch. They are so very lovely and elegant. I will
treasure them and enjoy wearing them.
