When you were younger, did you spend a lot of time playing around in your mother's or grandmother's jewelry box? I'm sure you found a few beautiful pearls in there while you were digging!

2. Edwardian Platinum and 14K Yellow Gold Pearl and Diamond Bar Pin
Nothing says old school like fashion pins! Pins or brooches were our grandmothers' definition of glam back in the day, and we are sure you probably saw more than one when rummaging through her jewelry box.

5. 18K White Gold Tahitian Pearl and Diamond Ring
We love a good statement cocktail ring, especially when there is not to many else like it. This ring features a gorgeous Tahitian pearl surrounded by 42 baguette cut diamonds. These beautiful pearls are formed from a black lip oyster and get their name from mostly being cultivated the islands of French Polyneisa, around Tahiti. Generally, black pearls have been symbols of wealth and prosperity because of their rarity and incredible value, so someone high in society could have potentially owned this before you!

It's perfect just by itself. You will be rocking a piece of the past on your wrist and look fashionable while doing it!

Another spin on unique pearl studs! You don't only just get beautiful pearls but they are also embellished with blue topaz. These can be a great birthday or holiday gift for the old soul girl in your life that is born in December to represent blue topaz as her birthstone. They can also be a perfect something blue if you are having a vintage inspired wedding. The blue topaz gives the earrings the perfect pop of color and is a great pairing with the pearl.
For a dedicated vintage lover, this is the ring for you! It is an antique so it has been around for many years and holds hundreds of memories and stories. The ring is set with three pearls and is surrounded by old mine cut diamonds. You will notice that the pearls really pop and the diamonds sparkle from any angle you look from. This has a lot to do with the diamonds being old mine cut. These particular diamonds are known to shine in even the smallest amount of candlelight and help any other stones around them look their best. You will look like a true vintage girl when having this ring on your finger!
