If you want to buy or collect vintage costume jewelry, learn what to look
for and where to look. There is something for everyone who is interested
in collecting vintage jewelry. Great places to find vintage costume
jewelry locally are estate sales, auctions and flea markets. Vintage
costume jewelry reflects the trends of the old days, and the designs are
more influenced by the type of clothing worn and the material used at the
time.

Behind every piece of vintage jewelry, there is a story. While antique
costume jewelry dates as far back as the Victorian era (1832-1901), the
literature claims that “antique” vintage costume jewelry can be
considered any costume jewelry that was made around 1910. Most
literature we read tells us costume jewelry made around 1910 and the
1960s is now considered “vintage. Each piece of vintage costume jewelry
is an investment in its own right.

Costume jewelry collecting is a hobby. Some women like to wear it and/or
display it. I'm fascinated with the beauty, quality and inexpensiveness
vintage costume jewelry can offer. As my own collecting tastes continue
to change, my knowledge of the history of vintage costume jewelry
continues to increase. I hope to add many new pieces to my own
collection. We buy vintage costume jewelry for the same reasons now as
when it was first made, it’s inexpensive and gorgeous. Many collectors
today consider their vintage and antique costume jewelry an investment,
and statistics show that it is.

If you have a collection of vintage costume jewelry, know where your
interest lies. You may only want to put it on display or your pleasure is
to wear the piece, the choice is yours. However, if you are only
interested in collecting vintage costume jewelry for re-sale or as an
investment, you’ll want to dig much deeper and do your homework before
you start buying. Whether you want to wear it, collect it, display it,
re-sell it, an enormous vintage costume jewelry smorgasbord awaits you.
