Inter - Your necklace is a wonderful find! Do you happen to know what time period the piece is from?

Fashion fashoff - Very impressive collection you have. Hard to believe the flawless condition of your pieces when you consider when they were made - some of the jewelery could easily be mistaken for modern designs!

Hi! I am very excited, after a long time of just reading TFS, I was admitted and this is my first post! YAY!

Lately I have been very into costume jewelry and I found a great little place here in San Francisco that has a lot of wonderful vintage pieces.

I am very new to this and was wondering about the prices. I am considering a signed - limited - necklace from YSL from the 70's and the price is around $1000. Seems a lot to me.

How much is too much? How do you know what these pieces are really worth?

The way I purchase vintage is not in expectance of making money, etc. If it speaks to me and I cannot stop thinking about it, I generally purchase. However, I have been collecting for quite sometime and usually when I see a piece I love, I think of a price in my head that if it's more than that, I pass on it.

yay That way you know you totally love it. I know it sounds cheesy, but when I know I really should buy a piece is when I finally own it and it feels like it was meant to be mine!

Does anyone know how to sanitise vintage earrings (22k solid gold)? Does anyone do this...are you supposed to? I inherited some reaally nice earrings but I'm scared to wear them because they've been in someone else's ears.

I still have a bottle of that earring cleaner stuff when I got my ears piereced at claire's cos I was convinced I needed the big bottle. I just use that. I also have a steam cleaner that my grandma gave me when I got engaged because she spends hours each week cleaning her jewelry, so supposedly I need to as well!.... but I made the mistake of putting in a pair of my gorgeous costume earrings and some of the stones fell out, so just watch out for that.

I just found the funniest pair of vintage earrings that I am going to wear with my Halloween costume..one earring is a dinosaur and the other is a bone. They are a riot.
