Vintage Costume Jewelry

Gannon's Antiques and Art

Antique and vintage costume jewelry is generally considered to be a relatively inexpensive alternative to fine jewelry, which is made from gold or silver and uses precious stones. We can find vintage costume jewelry made from all sorts of base metals and enhanced with semi precious stones, glass or faux jewels instead of the finer, more expensive alternatives. Costume jewelry is also called fashion jewelry. It is intended to be worn with a specific matching outfit or style. Not exactly disposable, but inexpensive enough to allow the user to buy many similar pieces to mix and match as accessories with fashions of the time.
We buy vintage costume jewelry!

Some antique and vintage costume jewelry is harder to find than others. Rhinestone costume jewelry can be found in every antiques mall across the country. Cameo pins are also very common. Bakelite jewelry, lucite, wood & celluloid jewelry all fall under the costume jewelry category and can be found readily. Vintage signed costume jewelry tends to be more desirable than similar unsigned pieces. Designer costume jewelry wholesale prices can often be found at antiques stores, especially if you buy in bulk.
