Vintage Jewelry.


I’m a sucker for any kind of jewelry but, vintage jewelry is my favorite!  I secretly try to think of the person that once wore it and what their life was like.  Some pieces I find remind me of my Grandma and her flashy jewelry collection, which I loved as a kid.  I was driving in Newton the other day and was stopped at a red light and to the right of me was not one but two antique stores!  I found 3 pieces at each place! 


Loved this funky little design.  Looks like some sort of tribal thing to me.  I think it would look cute with an ivory tank that I bought in Nashville.



I’m a huge fan of anything nautical.  Maybe a bit obsessed, so when I saw this United States Navy anchor pin, I couldn’t resist.  I plan on putting a skinny long gold chain through the little circle  at the top to make it a necklace.  The lady that worked there told me it’s from WWII.  She said ladies would wear a pin to represent which branch of the service their husbands were in.  How cute.



Who doesn’t love some gold bangles?!  These are super cute.  They kind of look like tree branches.  Love how skinny they are! 



Once again, these remind me of some nautical knots.  And anything nautical= Lindsay will buy.  So I took these babies home with me also!



These last two necklaces are basically identical to Kate Spade’s women for women necklace.  I’m not sure who made the necklaces I bought but, women in Rwanda hand make all of the beaded necklaces that Kate Spade sells in this collection.  Here is a side by side to see how similar they are!
