Recently, in addition to selling collectibles in an indoor flea market, I also rented a jewelry display case. I sell Sorrelli and other designer brands, but I learned quickly that vintage jewelry is also very popular. Many people come in looking for older jewelry. So I also enjoy purchasing vintage jewelry at auctions, and on Ebay.

This necklace is a beauty, and sold almost immediately. It was in excellent condition, with all stones present and shiny. They are absolutely breathtaking. There are two rows of small round rhinestones, with a row of larger round rhinestones in between. It drops in the middle to a slight V shape, and there are three pear shaped stones in the center. Two are medium, and the center one is larger. It has a hook clasp, and like so many necklaces of that era, it simply hooks over the rhinestones, rather than having a lobster type clasp. And as is also common with many vintage necklaces, it is between 15" and 16" long. (I think ladies had smaller necks back then. LOL!) But many necklaces from that era are chokers.

This met all my expectations and beyond. Sometimes I wish I could keep every necklace I purchase, but then I'd never make any money that way! This necklace was extremely beautiful and the stones were brilliant and bright. One girl said all she needed to go with it was a tiara! As I mentioned, it sold quickly. You might enjoy trying on some vintage jewelry when you are in antique or collectible stores. They truly are lovely, and there is a sense of history that accompanies them that is really neat. (Often the price is quite reasonable as well.)
