Summer time jewellery and brooches

Now I know it is suppose to be summer time here in the UK. But with rain and rain and more rain, not to mention the hail stones we have had recently this week. You could be forgiven for forgetting that it should be warm and sunny! But we have some vintage jewellery and brooches to cheer any dull day up.

These are some of the latest additions this past week.

Starfish jewellery set 1990s
Starfish jewellery set - New Age 1990s

A little bit of the seaside with this pretty starfish-shaped brooch and clip on earrings vintage jewellery set. Silver and gold tone 1980s/1990s matching set for wearing together or separate.  Pin the starfish brooch to a bag or hairband and believe that its summer!

Embroidery pansy brooch
Embroidery vintage brooch with pretty pink pansy flowers.1950s/1960s vintage jewellery that is not only collectible but wearable. Very popular to embroider your own jewellery in Victorian times and again post war to about the 1970s. With crafts coming back and more people sewing and embroidering, are we soon to see this relaxing pastime re-appearing in our jewellery?

Golden textured link necklace attributed to Coro
 Now this is a superb vintage necklace in gold tone. Attributed to Coro with textured links and a knot at the front. This type of necklace can be found by many designers around the 1960s era, especially about 1963/1964 period.

These are just 3 genuine vintage jewellery pieces that we have as new additions this week. Lots more to come with many new lines of vintage inspired and other gorgeous jewellery.
