This bracelet is actually a necklace.  It is one of the pieces I was able to have from my Grandmother’s jewelry. I wondered if it could possibly be “vintage”. I have not owned anything considered vintage before…that I was aware of.  But truthfully I didn’t really know what constituted vintage nowadays because I see that word everywhere—it is quite the trend.

So I googled it.

My quick (five minute) research explained that this particular piece of jewelry would definitely qualify as “Estate jewelry.” Which is basically a very dignified way of describing something that was previously owned.

To qualify it as vintage, I would have to know from what era it came from. By the looks of, I would say it is a vintage 1970’s Beaded Necklace. But, Grandma is not around to ask. So, until I can ask Grandma for sure, that’s what I’m going with.

Now I officially have my first Estate, Vintage Jewelry. Thanks Grandma (and mom, for letting me have it.)

Pin It!
