For over 40 years, 1928 Jewelry, has created stunning reproductions of vintage costume jewelry. Some of our designs are born from the creative minds or our design team but many collections have been inspired from ornate, sometimes over the top costume jewelry pieces created in the mid-2oth century.
When researching a piece I found at the Fairfax Flea Market this past weekend, I stumbled upon Sherri Duncan‘s website.
I’d never heard of Ms. Duncan before a serious, in-depth Google search. But thanks to good old Google – low and behold, she was there! The costume jewelry expert of my dreams! This woman had serious taste in costume jewelry, from Hobe to Dior, Miriam Haskell to Chanel, she had it! It was honestly the Haskell piece that made me love her.
Duncan has written an amazing coffee table book about her costume jewelry collection called Jewels of Passion. The hardcover, glossy page book features 175 pages of beautiful vintage to antique costume jewelry collections. For anyone who loves costume, or just loves jewelry in general, it’s a must own. And yes, you can get it through Amazon, what iconic fashion book isn’t?
