The old saying is true... they just don't make things like they used to.
The jewelry industry is no exception. In the early-to-mid 20th century, the United States built up a booming jewelry manufacturing industry that produced high quality costume jewelry domestically. This era was known for marrying beautiful designs with quality craftsmanship, resulting in pieces that retained their original beauty for many decades (or even centuries!)
Today, the rise of overseas production and the "fast fashion" industry has resulted in lower quality jewelry that may not even last a few years without tarnishing or breaking.
So if you're looking for jewelry that is gorgeous, unique, high quality, collectible and sustainable... your treasure hunt starts here!
Each piece is hand selected by our vintage-obsessed team!
We scour estate sales from around the world to find the best of the best in vintage jewelry.
Once we get these treasures back to our HQ, the next step is to clean and polish each item - breathing life back into each piece after decades in jewelry boxes or storage units.
Lastly, we curate capsule collections based on our favorite past trends, iconic looks of bygone eras & other vintage vibes.
We consider ourselves stewards of these classic baubles, restoring their luster and passing them on to a new owner who will treasure and care for them for decades to come!
PUPPIES MAKE US HAPPY!
A NOTE FROM STYLEMINED FOUNDER, ASHLEY:
I have a confession to make - vintage jewelry is my second biggest passion in life.
Around the same time our team launched the Stylemined brand, we also began rescuing dogs from the Los Angeles shelter system. Over the years we have rescued over one hundred Chihuahuas in need and found them loving forever homes.
I currently have six senior dogs of my own who are here with us at Stylemined HQ everyday - our team would not be the same without our furry friends!
I like to think that each time we ship a piece of jewelry off to it's new owner, that it's found it's new "forever home" as well :)
