High quality vintage costume jewelry is often gold filled (GF). Per Wikipedia: “Gold-filled jewelry, also known as “rolled gold” or “rolled gold plate” is composed of a solid layer of gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal such as brass.” Gold-Filled jewelry is typically considered a lifetime product, (with a wear life of over 30 years) and the gold layer does not generally wear off, as it will in electroplated (gold plated) products. This cameo set featuring Gold Filled items will bring you years of beauty.

A love of everything vintage has led us to this day. As the collections grew, the need to share has become important.
From vintage hats, to jars of buttons, recycled & up-cycled decor, and piles of sparkly vintage brooches…the collections have overtaken our abilities to display and enjoy so it is time to pass some found treasures on to others.
