Vintage Jewelry

I love vintage jewelry! I love the cuts and colours and the bulkiness of it. When I wear a vintage piece of jewelry I instantly feel a bit more sophisticated and mysterious.  Only in the past few years has my love for jewelry, new and old, come about. When I was younger, I didn't have the time of day for a good piece of jewelry, but now, what I wouldn't do for a gorgeous necklace or ring.

I just thought of writing this post and had I premeditated it, I would have taken pictures of my own vintage pieces, but alas, we will just have to settle with pieces from etsy and ebay.

I stumbled upon a website, Twist, which sells gorgeous handmade jewelry. Some of the jewelry reminded me of vintage pieces. The rings below are all by Cathy Waterman.

 The deep, rich colours of the gems are very vintage
The detail is very glamorous

The cut and sparkle of the gems are timeless

 The shape and size of the rings also remind me of vintage pieces
This blue piece is gorgeous. I could see a fabulous 1960's socialite wearing this at a cocktail party


  1. All so beautiful!! I really love the peach three strand necklace..gorgeous

  2. I love that necklace too! The colours are very pretty
