I am so partial to a bit of sparkle but I particularly love the colour and shine of vintage costume jewellery!
Vintage rhinestone jewellery was originally made to imitate diamonds to offer a more affordable alternative to lovers of fine jewels.
This type of jewellery then became really popular in World War II as luxuries became a rarer commodity.
A personal favourite vintage sparkle of mine is the Aurora Borealis. These rhinestones were treated with a special iridescent coating that gave them an amazing rainbow shine. Believe me when I say they are perfect for wearing with any colour!
Not only is vintage jewellery beautifully unique but it is also hugely collectable. There are quite a few designers to look out for on signed pieces such as Coro, Lisner, Art, Weiss, Miriam Haskel and Bogoff.
If having a signed piece isn't a major must when searching for a vintage sparkle then there are so many affordable stunning pieces available that are collectable purely because of their beauty and originality.
