Getting married? Congratulations! It’s time to plan your big day. One of the most exciting aspects of wedding planning is finding the right jewellery to match your wedding dress. Searching for wedding jewellery should be relatively easy, as there are countless retailers online and in malls and shopping districts across the country.
But what if you want something unique, such as vintage or antique jewellery? Cynthia Findlay Antiques recommends going to some unconventional places to find authentic vintage jewellery for your big day.
What are you doing this Saturday? Browse your local paper for announcements of estate sales because you just might find the perfect set of earrings and a necklace for your wedding day. Estate sales are prime venues for quality vintage and antique jewellery. Many people have even found period pieces such as Art Deco rings. It’s worth spending a weekend or two hunting for the good stuff at various estate sales near you.
Vintage Jewellery Retailers
If spending hours at an estate sale isn’t your idea of fun, consider visiting a vintage jewellery retailer, or someone who does the hunting for you. A vintage jewellery retailer has the experience and knowledge required to hunt for authentic pieces and bring them back to their former glory. Many brides have found great wedding day jewellery at vintage jewellery retailers, such as Cynthia Findlay Antiques.
