Avon Vintage Jewelry

Avon Vintage Jewelry

During the  Early 21st Century Avon sold man jewelry pieces are now collected and considered, Avon Vintage Jewelry. Avon was original founded by D.H. McConnell Sr. in 1886, the original location for the company was California and their original product sold was Perfume. During the 1920s, what we now consider the Avon Vintage Jewelry brand was called –  “Avon Products Inc.” with a business model that more closely resembles what Avon is today. The Avon Vintage Jewelry Brand we know now, back in the MidCentury sold old gifts, perfume, undergarments and of course, jewelry (among other things.) Avon’s business model for selling through official “sales representatives” in what we consider an MLM format, began in 1920s and continues to this day. Now, Avon Vintage Jewelry is collected by enthusiasts and would be considered a “Costume” Vintage jewelry brand as opposed to a “Fine Jewelry” or “Designer Jewelry” selling vintage pieces. Although, Avon did have many fine pieces that consisted of fine jewelry material such as gold, silver and semi-precious stones. Don’t forget to Shop while you reminisce!

Monet Jewelry

Monet Jewelry

Michael and Joseph Chernow started Monet in 1919, a Rhode Island Business that originally began as a Monogramming Service – which was a huge trend in the 1920s. Monet Jewelry Fun Fact: Edmond Mario Granville, who designed for Cartier was employed with Monet until 1939 The original name of the company was MonoCraft and they didn’t start creating jewelry as “Monet” until 1937, this is the jewelry that collector’s now consider collectible costume pieces and most of the popular items are MidCentury and Retro in Era. The Monet insignia was not on jewelry before 1955, so if you find a piece of Monet without the name inscribed you’ve potentially found a pre-1955 piece. Monet Jewelry Fun Fact: The “friction” ear clip and the “barrel clutch” for pierced ears were invented by Monet. Monet Jewelry Brand was a unique innovator of “tailored jewelry” competing in the trendy 1970s Jewelry market. These were Gold and Silver plated pieces, beautiful crisp, clean – without stones. This was a “Mod” look and the pieces are now considered “statement” necklaces and jewelry. Vintage Retro and Monet Jewelry  Today Liz Clairborne purchased Monet in the year 2000 and you can find new versions of the Monet Jewelry Line. Note – it is the MidCentury and early 19th century jewelry by Monet that collectors look for – these products bought by Liz Clairborne are not considered collector items (though one day they might be!) Tip: Costume jewelry can be very expensive and a great investment, but an item that shows major signs of usage will be a poor investment of your time and money. A piece that is...
Old European Cut Diamond

Old European Cut Diamond

The Old European Cut Diamond is the style of diamond cut after the ‘Old Mine Cut’ in the 1700s.

If you find an “Old European Cut” diamond you are looking at history – this was before the modern use of real diamond saws and tools and these original, natural diamonds are highly sought after by collectors.

Old Mine Cut Diamond

Old Mine Cut Diamond

Old Mine Cut diamonds date back to the 18th Century, making these very rare diamonds from the 1700’s and would be considered Antiques rather than Vintage, most of them. The style of the cut, is a rounded square or rectangular cushion-style cut. But, because the ‘Old Mine Cut’ diamond was practiced before diamond bruting was invented, they are expected to have dull edges and of course the cut is not as sophisticated as what we now call round brilliant or true cushion cut diamonds. These pieces came before the “Old European Cut” diamonds and are interesting when viewed up close, lexicon is apparent as you can almost see each hand-crafted cut on the diamond surface.
