Why we love vintage costume jewellery
Classic and elegant, costume jewellery can add uniqueness and flair to any outfit, smart or casual. Vintage costume jewellery is a statement, and is a way to express your individual style. It is also great to know that you are unlikely to find two identical pieces, so there is not much chance of someone wearing the same as you. Vintage jewellery were made to last, and with one size fits most – makes perfect gifts!
Early costume jewellery is different to its modern counterparts. Although costume jewellery has been mass produced since the early 1920s, generally speaking, the earlier back you go, the better the quality and more interesting the materials. Often you do not find the same materials or quality finishes in more modern mass produced items.
People love collecting costume jewellery and once you start it is hard to change the habit. Often collectors have a favourite designer or maker, or collect a certain period. We sell many different makes and designs in store and on our website, from high-end designers like Chanel; Givenchy and Lea Stein, to the mid-range widely-collectable makers such as Monet; Corocraft; Trifari; and Napier. We also sell unsigned and sometimes more modern makers such as JW and Danecraft (who are well-known for their fun kitsch pieces).
Unmarked or unsigned costume jewellery often comes at an affordable price, whereas more scarce or high-end designer pieces come with a premium price. We enjoy catering for both in store and online.
