A busy week, loads of new vintage jewellery and a Competition!

The week for the shop was actually a great deal busier than I had anticipated.  I got to add some lovely new items to the shop, and as I hadn't ran a competition in ages,  I opened a new competition on our twitter feed to win a vintage Sarah Coventry open work rose brooch.  If you would like to enter just pop over to our twitter feed, there are more details on our previous blog post

I love animal themed jewellery, this week some really lovely pieces of animal jewellery found their way into the shop including this lovely vintage butterfly art glass choker necklace by exquisite.  Exquisite jewellery manufactured by W.A.P Watson is becoming more and more collectable and necklaces by them are rarer to come across than some of their other jewellery pieces. Its in an excellent condition too

I also added two lovely vintage bird brooches one is of a goose in flight, carved from a single piece of adventurine,  its lovely in its simplicity and so stylish.

The other was of a vintage rhinestone studded kingfisher

The shop is building up a lovely collection of animal themed jewellery so much so that we now have our own dedicated animal themed jewellery page, its regularly updated.

I previously mentioned adding the butterfly necklace manufactured by exquisite to the shop, it was not the only addition by Exquisite there was also this stunning oval abalone shell brooch.

On the subject of vintage designer jewellery and with my love of all things manufactured under the Sphinx jewellery label, I was really pleased to pick up a few lovely Sphinx pieces,  not all have made their way to the shop yet. But this stunning art glass piece was added, I just love this brooch and the condition is excellent.

Some new sterling silver pieces were also added this week, two designer vintage rings and this lovely Celtic knot work necklace

The rings that were added are lovely the first one is by a company called LDP,  I haven't been able to find out much about them, its a modernist style ring with Zirconia stones, fully hallmarked and dating to 1980

The other ring is beautiful with a centrally set opal and garnets in sterling silver, fully hallmarked and dating to 1978 from the company P & R Bushell, sadly no longer in existence.  They folded in the early 1990's.

As you can see I have been busy,  this wasn't even all of the jewellery pieces that made their way online this week.  I will do a second post, my favourites I have to say were the sterling silver ring with opal and garnets, the Sphinx brooch and the Exquisite butterfly necklace.
