It’s December 16th. If you’re planning on buying someone jewelry online for the holidays and you haven’t done it yet, your hour has come.
Lucky for you, I’ve rounded up some fantastic, currently-available antique jewelry for you right here. Just a few clicks of the mouse or taps of the screen remain between you and that warm “Yes I DID remember to buy that gift” feeling.
Art Deco onyx marquise ring ($340) / Vintage cameo ring ($345)
Art Deco simulated topaz ring ($270)
We’re going to look at a wide range of styles and prices here today – starting at pieces around $100, because jewelry doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to be spectacular.
And remember: you deserve gifts too! Treat yourself, darlings.
Antique Art Nouveau locket ($160) / Antique star and moon locket with diamonds ($895)
Buying antique jewelry as gift can feel intimidating if you’re not a jewelry nut yourself, but as long as you buy from a reputable dealer and pay attention to all the details of the piece before you purchase there’s no reason to be nervous.
I’m only linking to dealers here that I know and trust. If none of these pieces strikes your fancy or you want more options, click through and check out what else they may have.
Antique pearl and diamond ring ($450) / Late 1800’s amethyst ring ($345)
Victorian conversion ring ($205)
Please note: while these pieces were all available when I wrote this post, remember that antique jewelry is one of a kind and once these babies are gone, they’re gone! If you fall in love, don’t wait – and remember to ask about shipping times.
Silver Art Nouveau locket with daisies ($245).
I think this locket is fantastic. The design has such a dynamic feeling of movement and because it’s silver with a paste gem, you get a whole lot of unique antique style for your dollar here.
