Vintage Bridal Jewelry and Accessories


Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
A silver sixpence in her shoe

This old Victorian good luck rhyme has been applied to weddings, specifically to the bride, for over a century. Something old connects the bride to her family's past. Something new displays the bride's future happiness. Something borrowed from a happily married family member or dear friend conveys the hope of such happiness being transferred to the newly married couple. Something blue represents purity. And in the last verse, usually forgotten, the sixpence represents financial security and future wealth. 

June has been the traditional month for weddings. In fact, the month of June is named after the Roman Goddess of marriage, Juno. The tradition has remained for a couple of millenia. In fact, summer is the most favored time for weddings, so June does usher in the "wedding season." So for all the Summer Brides out there Vintages offers some wonderful jewelry and accessories ... some old, some new and even some that are blue.
We have one of the largest selections of vintage Bride & Groom Wedding Cake Toppers
Diamond and precious gem engagement rings, wedding rings and wedding bands

We have this Victorian wax flower bridal wreath in the shop ($75, one of a kind)
This turn of the last century bride is wearing a wax flower wreath as a tiara.

While we do have fine jewel necklaces, earrings and bracelets, sometimes the appropriate choice is a gorgeous vintage piece set with brilliant crystal rhinestones
Individually hand decorated hand bags are a perfect accessory (from $155 to $195 each)
