The whole jewelry-on-Valentine’s-Day thing is a classic and if you wanna crank up the uniqueness factor to set yourself apart from the rest, consider wowing her with a vintage piece. Find one in excellent condition that’s nothing like anything on the market today. Costume and estate jewelry, for example, are often one-of-a-kind pieces that can’t be found elsewhere. Check out an antique mall, pawnshop, or an independently owned fine jewelry company to get your hands on something a little different.
If you’re looking to stun without breaking your wallet, a ruby red crystal bead set like this one will knock a couple of socks off and only put you back about seventeen dollars. And yes, you read that correctly.
This vintage Chanel yellow-gold tone cross estate necklace with red beads is really the creme de la creme . An artifact of the High ’80’s, this piece measures over nineteen inches in length with the cross measuring in at 3 x 2 1/2. In excellent original condition and authenticity guaranteed, the necklace comes with a pretty price, at just under $3, 500.
