Antique & Vintage Jewelry & Accessories

Vintage jewelry and accessories are as unique as the people who collect them. A Bakelite bangle or an enamel compact will always set you apart from the crowd. A moonstone Victorian necklace or a delicate Edwardian brooch will inspire your appreciation of beauty and evoke a sense of timelessness. An Art Nouveau necklace that belonged to your mother and grandmother creates a connection with them, a warm sentiment with which you can adorn yourself! Antique jewelry and vintage accessories can be works of art. Browse our collection of wearable collectibles and bring out your own unique style.

Our vintage and antique jewelry spans several eras. In our Victorian jewelry collection, you’ll find the popular mourning jewelry and sentimental jewelry of that era that will transport you to the decorative parlors of the 19th century. We feature an exciting array of art deco jewelry from the 20’s and 30's and a wonderful and quirky selection of retro jewelry from the 40’s to the 60’s. You’ll find vintage silver jewelry including Mexican silver, European and Siam silver, as well as early plastic jewelry, including celluloid, Lucite and Bakelite jewelry so popular with collectors today.
