Classic Finds: Vintage Costume Jewelry

Sarah Darcy from Classic Bride will be joining us every Friday this Fall to share a few of her favorite finds, inspiration and ideas for chic, classic weddings…

This Friday’s Find: Vintage Costume Jewelry

I started collecting antique costume jewelry back when I was just a little girl. I remember digging through my great grandmother’s vanity table and layering strands of pearls around my tiny neck, placing rhinestone pins on my Osh Kosh overalls and donning a tiara to go play in her garden in the backyard. Maybe those fond memories are the reason I still love collecting pretty costume jewelry from bygone eras. The affordable baubles can add such life to an otherwise demure outfit and I love how a classic rhinestone pin always adds a dazzling touch to anything it adorns. The crown and scepter pin above would be just perfect for a wedding day clutch.
