Vintage Thingie Thursday - Vintage Jewelry

Today for Vintage Thingie Thursday I thought I would post pictures of some Vintage Jewelry I got from my Mom. I like to collect vintage jewelry for my crafts so one day my Mom gave me some old costume jewelry she has had for years. After looking at it when I got home, I decided not to use it in crafts but to save it and give them one day to my Grand daughter Harper and to my niece Amber.

This piece is my favorite, it has pink and burgundy stones set as a brooch. My Mom said she has had it for over 60 years!

This one is a set of some old clip on earrings

This set is a brooch with matching clip-on earrings

These are some old brooches

I agree with you it would be a shame to use those jewels in a craft project..they're all too lovely :)

I like the ruby pin the best. I can see why you couldn't break it apart. Thanks for sharing.

I wouldn't have chopped these up for crafts either! They are in great shape and I'd wear a lot of it.

Anne! I love it! My mom had something very similar to the pinkish one in the first picture.
I think it's a great idea you've decided to keep them to share with your granddaughters.
Isn't the weather FANTASTIC today?! It's glorious!!!
