Vintage Accessories, finding and loving them

Vintage accessories

It’s no big secret that having the right accessories can make your look. Finding the perfect pieces for you, however, is not always super easy and can often take significant effort to hunt them down. While you can find many fashionable and affordable statement pieces on the high street, often these are only really wearable for a season as trends quickly change. Also with cheaper pieces, you typically get what you pay for and they can often damage or break after lots of wears. Vintage accessories – earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets and watches – are however more timeless, both in terms of style and durability. Such beautiful and unique pieces which have been worn and will be worn for many years, can add an element of class and elegance to any look. Finding these rare and unique pieces, each with their own history, can be a lot of fun. It’s also great knowing that you will probably never see someone else with the exact same piece as you.

Where to find vintage accessories

There are many ways to find vintage accessories with some being better than others, depending on what you’re looking for. For those on a budget, looking for costume jewelry and everyday accessories, you can often find great pieces in vintage stores, at flea markets and at yard sales. The online market for vintage accessories is also great and you can find a wide variety of sites, selling and auctioning accessories of all kinds and across all price ranges.

Vintage watches

If you’re only wanting a vintage watch for decorative purposes, rather than to actually tell you the time, then of course choosing one will more straight forward and you’ll only really need find one you like the look of. If you’re looking for a vintage watch to tell the time, though, it is always best to shop around. This way, you can be sure that the watch you choose is still properly functioning. There are great watches out there whatever your budget. For those really wanting to indulge or treat a loved one, designs by Franck Muller are very classy.
