Aqua Elegance4

I am so taken with these lovely vintage earrings! They are the perfect aqua color and one single clear rhinestone in each. These are from the 1940’s and are in pristine condition! I’ve already worn them myself!! They will be added to my Bonanzle site so look for them there. They are screw back earrings so anyone can wear them!! I’m calling them “Aqua Elegance”.

Mourning Victorian Pin3

This lovely little pin is from the Victorian Era roughly circa 1860 and was known as “Mourning Jewelry”. Made popular by Queen Victoria after her loss of Prince Albert. You can read more about it on BellaOnline –Romanticism – Mourning Jewelry and Tiffany & Co.

Celtic Carnelian Necklace

This is my newest necklace – Celtic Carnelian. I purchased some lovely Carnelian beads from a bulk bead buy. Keep an eye out for this on in my Etsy store.

The Aqua Elegance earrings are awesome. Reminded me of my mother-in-law who wore a blue satin dress for her wedding back then. Totally authentic vintage look. You sure you'll be selling them?
