Vintage Jewelry repair

A couple of years ago I received an email from a woman who found my website asking if I did repair work on vintage jewelry.

This is the first piece she sent me.  It was an absolutely beautiful Miriam Haskell piece with large baroque pearls and cobalt blue glass beads and those impossibly tiny seed pearls and a book value of $900.  Since this piece arrived on my workbench she has sent me several other Haskell pieces for me to repair.

What I love about this woman is she actually wears her vintage jewelry.
That is much better than letting it sit in a box somewhere.

I used to sell a lot of Haskell in an antique shop I was in.
Still love to see it.
