Vintage Photos
Period photographs help us to understand the era in which our treasured jewelry was first worn. They give context, showing the types of jewelry which were worn together, the fashions with which they were worn, and glimpses of the women who wore it. Women of every era have chosen to adorn themselves with jewelry, but age and socio-economic status, in addition to the fashions of the time, have influenced the jewelry these women considered appropriate and attractive. These faces from the past help to bring history alive, and the jewelry becomes even more precious when we think about the beautiful women who first wore it.
