This Mid 20th Century Hamilton 14KT yellow gold watch is a man's watch but I think it would be elegant for a man or a woman. I myself, am coveting a men's vintage watch, and this watch in particular, after two of my co-workers have made men's vintage watches part of their signature style. They are just so casually elegant.

This summer I have been noticing more than ever the beautiful stacks of bracelets women adorn themselves with.
I have always loved the story each individual’s jewelry tells, not only singularly but also in combination. And I’ve been known to wear up to ten bracelets at once and recollect with startling clarity the store of each bangle's acquisition. And I am a lightweight compared to Isadora’s owner and founder Laura Dalesandro who has a signature and singularly exquisite collection of antique bangles.
This summer, I am especially excited about the story stacks of yellow gold bracelets tell. The more eclectic the better!
I hope you enjoyed just a few of the great bangles I think would make an amazing addition to someone’s visual story.

Maybe it's because I have a Seattle "centric" perspective or maybe it's because I came of age in the Nineties, but I feel like every fashion blog or magazine is hailing the return of Grunge this season, with button down plaids and tartans. And I've also already read the backlash--How can we already be repeating the trends of such a recent era?
But being in the antique & vintage jewelry business, I like to meditate on jewelry trends, separating the one hit wonders from the classic styles, visual ideas that stand the test of time.
And while Seattle's grunge rock look may seem oh so nineteen nineties, it also hearkens back to another nineties, the 1890's, when Scottish and British clothing and jewelry were the height of Victorian fashion.
There were the tartan skirts. And then there were the Scottish Jewels--agate necklaces, and silver pins that looked like fierce chicken claws, strange and beautiful, and Cairngorm smoky quartz. And then there were the bold dynamic pieces of the British Victorian Era--fierce silver bangles, heavy looking chain necklaces and lockets and industrial looking cut steel sparklers.
