A Variety of Vintage

Maybe it's the after Valentine's Day blues or maybe just the cloudy weather, but I feel like looking at vintage jewelry. There's just something about it. You know it has a story, but it won't tell you what. Maybe an old ring you find in an antique store was actually Queen Elizabeth's or maybe the necklace you find at a garage sale was worn by Joan of Arc. OK, that's not likely, but you get what I mean. There is more to vintage jewelry than just the metal and stones. Here are a few pieces I found on Etsy.com. Some are actually vintage and some just look it, but I love them all.
