Antique Treasures

This weekend I did a little antique/estate sale shopping with my sisters and found some amazing jewelry. Who new that the little old gold mining town I live it is still quite the treasure trove! I couldn't believe I haven't done this more before! My favorite find? 6 pairs of clip on earrings for my delicate ear lobes. I've been searching high and low for clip ons to prevent my already stretched ear lope from slitting all the way through with no luck, until now. Turns out old lady jewelry is the ticket. Here are my beautiful finds:

I paid the most for this pair of amazing green and gold clip ons. Still, they were only 10 dollars! So worth it. I've already worn them twice.

Beautiful gold with pearls. Perfect for a night out.

I love the beautiful brown gem in the middle of these earrings. They remind me of something the queen would wear.

These gold and diamond earrings look a little more modern to me. Modern as in 1920's/30's art deco instead of Victorian.

I got these at the estate sale just around the corner from the antique store we visited first. That's a little coin! These earrings were probably only 3 dollars tops.

Also from the estate sale, I was so intrigued by this beautiful and intricate gold ring. The design almost looks like a bunch of gold tentacles intwined within each other.

Doesn't this necklace look like something you'd find in a treasure chest? I can't wait to wear it!

Last but not least, I loved this long, layered gold chain necklace. I'm going to double wrap it with whatever I wear. My favorite part is its versatility.

If you're in the area, make sure to stop by Jacksonville's Pickety Place, where I found a lot of my little treasures. The store is filled with all kinds of neat things, but of course I immediately narrow in on the jewelry. Here are some of the necklaces there...

...and some beautiful broaches. I could go crazy in that store!


  1. So cute! Also--Target has this amazing pair of clip on earrings that I love on there display booth. You should check it out. ( :

  2. Oh gosh looks like I'll have to make a visit to Target soon! As if I need another reason to go haha. If they have clip-ons they truly have everything.
