What girl doesn’t love jewelry? I have a soft spot for vintage and antique jewelry. Among my favorites are my great grandmother’s cocktail ring, a large link silver bracelet of my mothers, and a pair of jade earrings that belonged to my grandmother. However one of my very favorites is my grandfather’s 1929 college class ring. I wear each of these pieces occasionally and store them in small pouches in a drawer… that is, until today.
I was fortunate to find this small group of three antique jewelry boxes. They're simply lovely. Each is from different jeweler, two in the U.S. and one from the U.K.This is the perfect way for me to store and even display my pieces on my dressing table. I may even use these boxes to display vintage jewelry I will offer for sale at our Paris Flea Market. However, I don’t think I will be able to part with the boxes.
Shown here are a few pieces of my vintage jewelry including an antique shoe clip bracelet by Maria Machuca who designs one-of-a-kind, unique pieces for the shop.Consider displaying some of your vintage costume jewelry pieces in your dressing room or on your vanity. Vintage and antique jewelry is so beautiful, it’s a shame to have it locked up. Keep your eyes open for some charming, unique boxes for displaying or you could even ask your mother or grandmother if they have any vintage boxes for you to borrow. I know I will be, as I would love to have a few more unique boxes. Remember, enjoy your jewelry, even when you aren’t wearing it by displaying some pieces. Happy treasure hunting
