So when I started Bijour bears jewellery, I started with new jewellery and have some truly fantastic items.
However, then I bought my first vintage lot and I have to admit that I am hooked. Vintage jewellery has a story to tell, it has a history all of its own.
The vintage necklace from the 1930s, that was made in the UK but travelled to the USA with its owner and then became part of a huge collection of jewellery from four generations of the same family which I bought. I wonder at the parties this beautiful rhinestone necklace was worn to, did the owner buy it or was it a gift.
The beautiful Vintage Amber Hinged Turtle Bracelet from the 1960s but in such wonderful condition I wonder if this amazing piece of jewellery has spent its entire life shut away. A beautiful piece like this must have cost a lot and should have been shown off and admired, but it shows no signs of wear. maybe the owner was extremely careful, this amber bracelet would certainly deserve that.
