Collecting Vintage Jewelry

If you want to buy or accumulate vintage costume jewelry, learn what to look for and where you can look.  There is something for everybody who is enthusiastic about collecting vintage jewelry.  Great places to find vintage costume charms locally are estate sales, auctions and flea markets.  Vintage costume rings reflects the trends of the old days, and the designs are more influenced by the sort of clothing worn and the material used at that time. 

Behind every little bit of vintage jewelry, you will find a story.  While antique costume rings dates as far back as the Victorian era (1832-1901), the literature claims that “antique” vintage costume charms can be considered any costume jewelry that was made around 1910.  Most literature we read tells us costume earrings made around 1910 and the 1960s is now considered “vintage.  Each piece of vintage costume jewelry is an investment in its right.

Costume rings collecting is a spare time activity. Some women like to wear it and/or display it.  I'm captivated by the wonder, quality and inexpensiveness vintage costume earrings can offer.  As my own collecting tastes continue steadily to change, my knowledge of the history of vintage costume jewelry continues to increase. I hope to include many new pieces to my very own collection.  We buy vintage costume jewelry for the same reasons now as when it had been first made, it’s inexpensive and gorgeous.  Many collectors today consider their vintage and antique costume charms an investment, and statistics show that it is.

In case you have a assortment of vintage costume jewelry, know where your interest lies. You might only want to put it on display or your pleasure is to wear the piece, the decision is yours.  However, for anyone who is only thinking about collecting vintage costume rings for re-sale or as an investment, you’ll want to dig more deeply and do your homework before you begin buying.  Whether you need to wear it, gather it, display it, re-sell it, a massive vintage costume charms smorgasbord awaits you.
