Newsworthy: Vintage Jewelry Collectionary

VJC Screeng Shot_edited-1

You may know by now that I really enjoy vintage jewelry. So when Josh Lohrenz from the Vintage Jewelry Collectionary reached out to me to suggest a collaboration (i.e., I spread the word about VJC to my lovely readers, that would be you, and he spread the word about Truly Blog to all his vintage jewelry lovers), I had to see what VJC is all about.

Here's how it works: You know when you go to a flea market on a beautiful sunny day, and you're on the hunt for that piece of jewelry, furniture, or other must-have item you've concocted in your mind and convinced yourself it exists.... and perhaps, if you're like me, you spend hours going up and down the aisles hoping you find "it" or something as fabulous. Well, VJC is just like the flea market, but online. VJC members and moderators source vintage jewelry from all over the internet so that you don't have to go to the "four corners" of the world wide web looking for it. Once you find a great piece, you have access to the item's price and link. Really convenient, huh!

VJC is actually part of the larger Collectionary, a site dedicated to sourcing any collectible you can think of, from guitars to Star Wars. You not only have the option to buy the items, but the site allows members to include information about the item's history and any trivia they may know about it. This is why the Collectionary is known as the "Dictionary of everything in the world that people collect." If you are interested in a particular collectible, you have the option to join and become a "member." Or become a "moderator" if you consider yourself to be an expert collector and want to help build a collection.

As I was perusing through my online flea market, i.e., VJC, I came across some really cool vintage jewelry. Usually when I find a vintage piece I like, I think of what I could pair it with that would instantly give it an update. Vintage is at it's best when you can reinterpret it in a modern way and give it a fresh perspective, don't you think? Here are some perfect pairings I put together.
