Sunday's Sterling Silver - Both New and Vintage

To me, there is nothing like the earthiness and patina that sterling silver acquires as it ages and is exposed to the elements.

Some like their sterling silver like new with a great shine, but I love the aged look more.

My stores have a great selection of all types of sterling silver jewelry, so whichever you prefer, there will be something for every one.  Here is a look at some of lovelies.  For more information, just click on any of the pictures to go to the store.

Lovely marcasite, glass and sterling silver brooch/pendant.  Very Art Deco looking!

Mid Century Anton Michelsen Scandinavian Sterling Silver Brooch and earrings.

Very collectible Stuart Nye Vintage Dogwood Flower brooch and clip earrings.

Millefiori Murano Glass Sterling Silver Earrings By designer Alan K

Fabulous Sterling Silver and Freshwater Pearl Bracelet with a pretty toggle clasp.

I have dozens more sterling silver designs at Vintage Jewelry Lane.  Hope to see you there soon.

Gift Cards Now Available at Etsy

The holidays will soon be upon us. Each year, I seem to be more amazed than the last that the year has flown by so quickly.

Buying vintage jewelry as a gift can be hard unless you know exactly what style the recipient would like to wear.  Gift cards are a nice alternative in a case like this.

My shop at Etsy, Vintage Jewelry Lane now accepts gift cards purchased on Etsy.    Purchasing one could not be easier.   You can even customize the card with a few different logos.

To purchase a gift card, click Gift Cards at the top left of any page in my Etsy store.
Then choose “Email to a friend” to send an e-gift card or select “Print at Home” so you have a physical gift.   You then add it to the shopping cart, select the amount and pay.  That is all there is to it.

The recipient will then choose to use the card at checkout and their purchase will be paid for by the card.   At the moment, only shops who accept credit cards, and only US customers can use the Etsy gift cards.
