Les bijoux incroyables

Vintage Retro Charm Bracelet in 18k

If you love jewelry, especially unique vintage items, you must go visit the newly redesigned Beladora and B2 websites! They have so many amazing pieces and you can search by item type, designer, period, or by price.

Here are some of the items I’ve been drooling over…

Tahitian Pearl Ring in 18K. Look at the lustre of that pearl!
Lapis Bead Necklace in 18K

Who says “real” jewelry has to be serious or stuffy? Wear this to next year’s Westminister Kennel Club Dog show! Does your bulldog drink champagne?

Diamond and Sapphire Bulldog Pendant

After a fabulous week of skiing, I’ll admit I’m tempted by this mid-century brooch.

Or maybe your taste runs to an earlier, more elegant period. You could channel some Downton Abbey action in these Belle Epoque Amethyst earrings.

Belle Epoque Amethyst Drop Earrings

Someone really needs to wear those on the Oscars red carpet…

Lady Mary might have pinned something like this to her riding cravat…

Edwardian Sapphire and Diamond Brooch in Platinum

What’s your favorite period for jewelry?

    I find myself drawn to Georgian jewelry.

    I love the stick pin. I have one that is very similar. It was my great-grandmother’s and I usually wear it on my blazer in the winter. I can’t wait to see the jewelry worn at the Oscar’s!!!

    Ironic that you are posting this right after your “Scrimp and save” blog post!! I think I’d take the Edwardian brooch. Love some bling in blue and grey.

    Some incredibly beautiful pieces there, Une Femme. I love an antique ring.

    I think jewelry from the Edwardian period is so pretty. I love the delicate look of these pieces.

    Love love love vintage jewelry. (Lady Mary… You crack me up!)

    One gorgeous stickpin or brooch can say so much. (I loved the way my grandmothers would accessorize. I can still see it in my mind’s eye. Stunning.)

    Going to explore these sites!

    Oh, purr! I like art deco and mid-century and find that vintage pieces return excellent value, especially Beladora’s, which are well-priced and beautifully curated. I don’t understand why anyone would buy a mass market brand (Yurman etc.) when you could have this.

    I love jewelry from the Art Deco period, definitely my favorite, other than now.

    There is some gorgeous jewellery on this website. I really like a lot of the Edwardian pieces.

    Strange as it may seem, I have no desire for jewelry of any kind per moment.
    But -things might change, who knows..

    Merci for your wonderful post.
    After many months of meetings and mayhem the new Beladora.com was finally launched. We’ve added all kinds of features to make the site easier to navigate and we’ve even added a blog. From period pieces to high jewelry to designer bling to fun funky vintage items, we think that there will be something for everyone’s taste and budget.

    I hope that everyone will check out the new site and then let us know your what you think. How can we make it even better?We are tweaking it as we go.
    Cheers, Nancy

    I’m with Duchesse on the wonderment…most modern pieces (Cathy Waterman excepted) do nothing for me. My favorites are Art Deco, Edwardian, Art Nouveau. But Georgian is lovely, too. Once the 50s hit, the jewelry became far less expressive. Overall, that is. And now, I know there are individual artists on Etsy and in communities where beautiful work is available, but mass market? Yuck.

    Art Nouveau, if I really had pick just one. If I could have more than one, then contemporary and Georgian.

    I’m hoping that as the weather cools down, I’ll want to start wearing jewellery again!

    Goodness, this one was a troublemaker. As in “I’ll be back, I’m off to drool at Beladora for a bit.” (A bit is something of an understatement.) They have the nicest pieces, I just pinned three more charms, including the bulldog you showcased. And I am an enormous Belle de Ville fan as well, so this was a post that had me smiling ear to ear, thank you!

    When I saw the lovely pearl ring, my appreciation of the pearl ring my mother passed on to me was renewed. I have had so much vintage costume jewelry passed through my hands by relatives that I don’t know what period I prefer! Thanks for sharing this site – looking forward to perusing 🙂

    Don’t know if I’ve ever posted but I read your blog all the time.
    You NEED that duck brooch! It’s so you!
