It's a LUXE SUMMER and we are off to a fabulous start! We are having so much fun collecting Estate Sale Jewelry and getting stocked for our Pop Ups out East. We weren't planning on launching a Jewelry Collection but the universe had other plans for us and we are thrilled!
It started with the trunk show we had with our friends and neighbors Vanessa's Vintage and Monica of Boudoir Vintage. Melissa was smitten and bought a few fabulous pieces of vintage and antique jewelry from both of their collections. Then she found a few pieces from our clients Estate Sale, and began to reach out to her contacts who represent other Estate Sales, attended a few auctions and that was it. Our new Luxe Estate Jewelry Collection was born!
Melissa says "Having always collected beautiful and personal statement jewelry, I loved how these pieces were so much more unique than what is commercially available. I was in an elevator recently when a woman commented that she loved my earrings, which was lovely. Then she revealed that she had on a necklace from the very same jewelry house's collection. I realized my unique earrings were no longer unique, but soon after I met Monica and a new obsession was born!"
Because these pieces are two hundred or more years old, they are usually one of a kind, always rare and special. You can collect them or mix and match them to create a personal statement collection that no one else will have. The best part is that they are of incredible quality, handmade and available in many price points. The fobs or charms can be hung on chains already in your collection or you can begin your collection with an Albert chain which was used to give easier access to a pocket watch. It is the height of chic in this new-old classic jewlery style, that is catching on all over. Think Bridgerton up to the Gilded Age, it was an exciting time when jewelry exploded on the scene. The first time it was available to well heeled men and women who weren't royalty.
Curious how these work? Join Monica and I for our Instagram Live on Friday where we will build a collection to show you and try on our favorite pieces. Learn all about vintage jewelry from Edwardian, Victorian and Georgian eras up to Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Retro. Learn what era best represents your personal style, whether it be the classic cleaner lines of Edwardian era, the flowery ornate styles favored by Queen Victoria or the bold pieces of Art Deco and Retro.
You'll learn just in time to shop our collection onsite Friday afternoon before we head to our first Pop Up out East on Saturday. This Sunday June 11th we will be at the Southampton History Museum at 17 Meetinghouse Lane from 10am-5pm for a Luxury Vintage Market hosted by The Hampton Flea. A Market full of beautiful and unique vintage goods makes our heart happy. We will be bringing our new Estate Jewelry Collection along as well as Vintage Coastal Decor. Check our stories to see some of the pieces, which include large and rare specimen Seashells, Coral, boxes and boxes of fabulous Chinoiserie and so much more. We are looking forward to a day of sunshine and shopping in the Seabreeze. Hope to see you there!
