Vintage Bling Giveaway!

I had such a great response from all of you during my Christmas Jewelry Giveaway that I decided with New Year's barreling down on us, it would be fun to give away a gorgeous set of 1950's vintage bling!

Anyone who loves glitter will just adore the sparkle created by the vintage pieces of the 1950's. These are so well made compared to the reproductions available today. Each and every sparkling clear crystal or rhinestone has been set in the shiny rhodium backing by hand. These are NOT the glued in stones you see today that fall out the minute you turn your back, these are claw set, ie, sturdy and durable and will last another 60 plus years if cared for properly.

As is usual in many an earring of this era, these sparkling beauties are screw backs so no matter what your lobe thickness, you can be sure to find the perfect comfortable fit. The tops of the earrings are approximately 1/2" x 3/4" in size.  The matching necklace is 13" in length with an additional 2 3/4" in extenders for a custom fit.

They are gorgeous! I do think that collecting this kind of bling could get me into lots of trouble!

Carol said...

You bet I want in on this one!!
I have a vintage rhinestone necklace that was given to my Grandma from my Grandpa when they were first married. I treasure this. My Grandma will be turning 90 in March and still driving around town.

Gotta get that link up!
I love vintage Bling :)

Carol said...

I finally just found the link to your other blog! What a beautiful collection and the story of finding the bracelet while doing demo on the fireplace - how cool!!

The Mommyologist said...

This is gorgeous! I just love vintage stuff. They definitely don't make things like they used to. My wedding band was my grandmother's and it is just so simple and pretty. I love pieces with some history to them! It's fun to think about who wore it and the experiences they had, etc.

Too Many Hats said...

Wow, that is beautiful. Sign me up :)

Carol said...

My mom read your blog and called me right away... she is digging out some old family jewelry to give to me!

I will send you a picture of the necklace from my grandma. Not sure if there is any value to it or not.

blueviolet said...

That is absolutely beautiful! How in the world could you be willing to give it up?

I'm a follower, of course!

MOMSWEB said...

I admire you for putting yet another item on your already full plate - or should I say platter? Oh well...I guess it takes one to know one (lol).

Have a wonderful week in Motherhood!

Rabbit said...

Ina in Alaska said...

I am just stopping by to say hi, you need not include me in this giveaway (but I am still on for the other one!) xoxo

HUzzah! Vintage said...

i would love to win this glam giveaway. Screw back earrings are the only things I seem to be able to wear these days (plus it always feels so retro to just pull an earring off one's ear!)

Joanna Jenkins said...

What a beautiful and generous giveaway. THANK YOU!

I am a follower of your blog.

Happy holidays,
xo

Heather said...

Now that is a beautiful necklace! Not something I would wear, but very pretty.

Caution Flag said...

I just read a novel set in the
30's and screwback earrings are mentioned several times. That got me thinking about my aunt who always wore them and now here you are mentioning them. Funny how we hear something we haven't heard in a long time and then we hear references to it several more times right after.

Corrie Howe said...

I created a secondary blog just so I can start participating in these contests. However, I don't have any new followers yet. So I won't waste you time. But when I start getting some followers, I'll start blogging about your give-a-ways.

my new site is www.corriehowe.wordpress.com

brainella said...

Very neat. I love the earrings. :)

Carol said...

I haven't had a chance to play much on blogland but will take a picture of the jewelery soon and send it to you!

We are just a tad busy keeping up with the snow!

Jeanne said...

Visiting from Stacey Warner's, where I saw your comment. Don't generally enter giveaways, but I'm a fool for vintage, especially 1950's stuff.

Pick me! Pick me!
