A Mother's Favorite: Vintage Jewelry
The first woman you meet in your life is usually your Mom. She sees the best and worst of you and reciprocally, you also see her grow throughout the years. Thereby, it's no doubt that many people have the strongest connection with their Mothers.
A beautiful charm pendant, a special birthstone ring, a set of stud earrings or a beautiful pearl strand bracelet can all symbolize the special bond you have. Jewelry is an opportunity to imbue those wonderful memories you share.
A piece of jewelry is a favorite gift choice because it’s a visible and physical reference to something with meaning. It's a reminder of something; a feeling, a person, a place, a moment. Some people wear their jewelry like it is a tattoo. It becomes part of them and a permanent accessory no matter what they wear or where they are going.
Fine jewelry is a good place to start your jewelry shopping for Mom. Plated and gold-filled jewelry is always tempting because of its lower price but if you are looking for something that will last you want to choose fine jewelry. Moveover, vintage fine jewelry is a great option if you’re looking to stick to a budget but you don’t want to compromise on the quality of the gold or gemstones.
Vintage jewelry typically comes from different periods of time and eras that present an unexpected charm and truly unique. The Rose Bouquet Cuff is from the early mid 20th century and it owes its design to that era with the intricate weaving and floral details in rose gold. Another benefit to vintage jewelry is that you can find unique and one-of-a-kind jewelry from all over the world like the Arabian Nights Necklace that has Persian turquoise gemstones set in 18k rose gold.
An important thing to remember with vintage jewelry is that it can be substantially lower in price than retail jewelry. The best example to demonstrate the value of buying vintage jewelry is to compare designer brand jewelry. A pair of Chanel Double C Earrings retails for around $650 but can be found in the vintage market circuit for 25% less than the retail price. Furthermore, vintage Tiffany and Co. and vintage Cartier jewelry can be found at prices 30% - 60% less than the retail asking price.
