Pearls of Wisdom...Real or Not?

Luscious pearls are timeless...from brides through the ages to movie starlets right down to state dignitaries. All have chosen the classic pearl. Real or not? hmm...first test. If you rub the surface of the pearl over your teeth, a real pearl feels gritty while a faux pearl feels smooth.
One look at this Austro-Hungarian necklace, you just KNOW they're real...gorgeous!

Civil War Era Snake Locket..Rare Fab!

Doctor? Perhaps. Gorgeous 1860's Victorian 10K gold locket & necklace. The symbol looks like an early caduceus but then again, the Victorians loved symbolism and the snake was everlasting. Fab no matter what!

OooLaLA!! Superb Deco Enamel Czech Necklace snowed another 6" of snow last night and I can't help but think "SPRING, PLEASE!!" This superb Art Deco Czech necklace sure does help transport my mind to a warmer time to come! This beauty has all the bells and whistles...long, colorful rhinestones and special swirled purple glass beads that alternate with opaque white beads. The pendant has a basket of enamel flowers with little jewels that just smack of spring, not to mention the dangling glass beads below. A true sign of a more expensive Czechoslovakia necklace is the intricate detail put into the enamel and metal work...right down to the connector of the double row glass chain. Who wouldn't want to usher in a little spring and do it in complete style? Love these old Bohemian Deco beauties!

Crazy for Bohemian Czech Jewelry!!

I just listed this gorgeous signed Czechoslovakia necklace in my shop on Etsy and it happens to be one of my favorites. The purple is 2die4. Hmm...need to scrounge up some more of these fabulous 'em!

A few of the BEST vintage clothes from my favorite seller!!

We are so lucky to find some of these fabulous old Victorian pieces. The Victorians were very much into symbolism. Both sentimentality and symbolism were important elements of Victorian design. Jewelry could be read like books, the design telling of the giver's feelings or hopes. The horseshoe was for luck, the forget me not flower stood for remembrance, the diamond for constancy and the seed pearls were symbolic of tears. Imagine the story this beauty could tell! Don't foget to check out the Etsy Vintage Street blog and enter to win a $10 gift certificate from the featured shop.
