Meajean Vintage is a store I’ve mentioned before, more than once. These vintage-loving sisters have an incredible selection of costume and fine jewelry, both vintage and antique, ranging from less than $30 to about $1,300. It’s one of the online jewelry stores I check regularly and I always find something that I love.
Their stock is always beautifully photographed, which is something I appreciate even more now that I’ve spend so much time experiencing firsthand how hard it is to take decent photos of jewelry.
Speaking of photos: Maejean Vintage has a fabulous Instagram account, too. And if you like something they post, don’t wait for it to come up in their shop: I’ve seen more than one piece of theirs snapped up before it even made it into the shop. You can also follow their behind-the-scenes adventures on their blog.
Enough talk. Let’s look at some of my favorite pieces currently available in the Maejean Vintage Etsy store.
Maejean Vintage has three categories of particular excellence, in my totally biased opinion: pretty little antique necklaces, gold lockets, and pretty little antique rings; all of which I usually want to buy and which are often in my personal Kryptonite price range of $150-$450. This 1930’s-1940’s lavalier is a great example: it’s sweet, lovely, eminently wearable, and under $400.
I’m severely lusting after these three sapphire and diamond rings. This trio began their lives as antique stick pins, but have been converted into rings. They’re tiny, lovely, unique, and extremely wearable.
I wouldn’t be surprised if this Victorian two-sided agate fob necklace sells before I get this post online. It’s just so cool – and so affordable. I want it for myself. This may be a very dangerous Store Profile for me to be writing.
A trio of gorgeous antique amethyst rings.
Maejean Vintage is also a pretty reliable source for antique camphor glass necklaces, which you know are something that I can’t get enough of. I’ve considered buying this particular one more than once.
Just look at that delicious paperclip chain! I’ve resisted so far. Maybe it’s meant for one of you?
Or how about this 1920’s ring to go with it? I haven’t added one of these to my personal collection yet, but it’s definitely occupying a spot on my ring bucket list (a list that Mr. DitL is wont to make gentle jokes about with fear in his eyes).
The more jewelry I look at, the more I lean towards unusual pieces. I adore all of these charismatic antique rings, especially the little garnet and pearl Victorian band and the Roman warrior hematite.
Could this guy be any prettier? I purchased a lavalier somewhat similar to this at last year’s Baltimore Summer Antiques show last year and I wear it alllll the time. People stop me on the street to ask me where I found it.
If you wear ties and you don’t own any sword-shaped tie clips with which to adorn those ties, you are squandering an opportunity for awesomeness.
Anyone looking for a modest but still stunning engagement ring would be well served by checking out Maejean’s stock. This is only a selection of the currently available diamond rings, not a one over $1,500.
Now the most exciting part: check back this afternoon for the chance to WIN a beautiful piece of antique jewelry from Maejean Vintage in honor of my 2 year blogging anniversary, which happens to be today!!!

Oh a dangerous place indeed, that blog of yours. How I will survive any longer without that camphor glass necklace? How, I ask you?

It’s beautiful, isn’t it?? I’ve never been one to survive without camphor glass 😉
