About

Q Vintage Jewelry sells pre-owned, vintage costume jewelry in gently used condition. The majority of jewelry offered in my shop is from the 1950s - 1970s, however, at times pieces from the 1920s thru the 1990s are offered. Vintage jewelry is a term used for an item that is at least 20 years old, while items 100 years old or older are considered antiques.

I love costume jewelry - all of it! Whether its today's fashion jewelry or vintage pieces. I love the way jewelry adornment can be used to set the tone of any outfit - from demure to edgy.  Antiques and collectibles have always been one of my many interests, but vintage costume jewelry was what really got my attention. I come from a family of "collectors" and learned a lot from my parents, grandparents who shared their collecting enthusiasm and knowledge. I learned about a wide variety of things from depression glass to vintage radios and telephones. My Grandmother had a nice collection of costume jewelry and would tell me about the pieces while letting me "model" them. Feeling glamorous while wearing all that sparkly jewelry goodness, was always my favorite part of her various collections.

After 17 years working for a non-profit corporation, the opportunity to start my own business came along. It made sense to focus on doing something I was really passionate about. Now thanks to the Internet world, instead of that little brick and mortar antique store I’d envisioned having someday, I have the pleasure of working in my “virtual” store while communicating with many more persons than I ever imagined.

They say do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life. And, it’s so true because whether I'm off hunting for jewelry to add to my own collection, doing research on a mystery find, or bringing you select pieces to discover while browsing in my shop, I’m enjoying every minute.

Every customer is greatly appreciated and I hope you have a wonderful experience while visiting Q Vintage Jewelry.  If you have any questions that haven’t been answered in the pages of my shop, please do contact me here.
