Just a quick blog post today. I spent a great deal of my free time this past weekend updating the vintage jewelry glossary in my resource center on Vintage Jewelry Lane. I have added dozens of new terms to the list. Many of them are fairly obscure words that aren't heard as often which may stump even veteran vintage jewelry collectors.
Don't know what Basse-taille means? Haven't got a clue what someone is talking about when they say blister pearl? Totally dumbfounded when you hear the word cannetille? All of these words and many more are defined for you in the glossary.
Armed with this resource and a good memory, you'll be able to join in with the most advanced vintage jewelry discussion with confidence.
