Each antique jewelry collection is unique — a compilation of pieces the owner fancies for one reason or another. Collections are also constantly evolving. If you’re just starting to collect antique and vintage jewelry, perhaps your collection is random and undefined. True connoisseurs are continually refining their jewelry boxes by buying, selling, upgrading, and exchanging.
I’d like to think antique jewelry is timeless, and in a lot of ways, it is. But as trends and our tastes change, so can our collections. So what are some ways you can improve your selection of jewelry? Here are some ideas for revamping your collection in the new year. Add items in these categories to have a richer, more sentimental collection you’ll want to hang on to for generations.
If you love any of the items listed below, don’t forget to bid on them! Each of these pieces will be hitting the auction block on January 18th for Fellows’ Antique & Modern Jewellery Sale. If you’re coming to this post late, the jewelry is here to admire. Which is your favorite?
