Jewelry

I have been looking for antique looking jewelry since like two months ago. It's so not easy to find around here, believe me, I thought it would be so much easier, I visited like every thrift store i know and I ended up finding some vintage pieces among my mom's stuff, which she was about to give away. With so many trends I had almost forget the important role jewerly played, they really have the power of making plain outfits more interesting, although as you may have guessed this post is not really about my outfits, it's just to show the stuff I got. The first couple pictures are of my favourite long necklace in the last days, it's actually a little bottle where you can place some perfume (my mom told me so, but i haven't tried that, a friend thought it was for liquor, she got pretty excited on that), the first picture is before i washed it and I have to say I like it better dirty, looks older and cooler, so I didn't clean the other side and wear it with the dirty side on front. Oh and I'm sorry the third picture is so out of center, I didn't calculate well but i just decided to put it up so you can appreciate the length of the first necklace on it.

que curioso que escribas justo justo sobre joyeria vintage porque es la nueva obsesion que corre por mi cabeza ultimamente... me gusto este post.

por cierto, visitaste las antiguedades en la calle la paz en miraflores? se supone que ellos se especializan en joyeria antigua, aunque no se como andaran de precios y variedad.

Beautiful necklace, I like them to be as long as possible. I also once cleaned a ring I got from my grandmother, only to find out it looked better dirty... And it's so cool that you can put the perfume in the necklace.

Love, love it!!!
Don't clear vintage jewelry, it have something called "patine" that gives it the vintage look and that it's the mark of the years.

Oh those bracelets are great! The flask reminds me of some movie where someone stayed young drinking from the flask around their neck...what was it? Ahhh, don't remember.

That is such a pretty necklace, so unusual. I love all your bracelets too, it's something I'm really into at the moment too, wearing mismatched bracelets. Mother's really do have the best vintage stuff, it's all for free!!
