Jewelry and Fashion

Ever notice the jewelry and fashion going back 20 or more years to another era? The jewelry fad is now bold bib necklaces just as it was in the 1940-50s era and also the 1960s-70s era, the aluminum fringe necklace is from the 40s-50s where the blue bib necklace from the 60s-70s, and of course the shoe clips were a fashion statement in the 40s and 50s to dress up those black heels, the clips here are from the 1980s era. Clothing is also going back to another era when bell bottom pants were in style, plus the more feminine look in ruffled blouses. I love the vintage jewelry and fashion styles of this era!

Amco vintage jewelry

Wonderful vintage Amco designer signed jewelry. I believe they made just about everything in the way of jewels and very well made, with most being gold filled delicate designs. They began manufacturing jewelry in 1919 and ceased in the 1970s, this fabulous jewelry was made in Providence RI by very talented artists resembling high end pieces that have held up throughout the years with many years of wear left.
This beautiful bracelet and earrings are in perfect condition and show wonderful rich patina, and are a good example of their fine jewelry. This set is listed in our store at this link
