Vintage Jewelry FAQ

VT creates jewelry with semi-precious gemstones, unusual metals, free trade beads and materials ethically sourced from around the world.  With sustainability and eco-consciousness in mind, we now offer carefully-curated vintage jewelry.  

Why buy vintage jewelry?

What can I expect when buying vintage jewelry?

All vintage jewelry for sale has been carefully chosen so expect a piece that is in optimal shape.  By that we mean free of any damages, like scratches, dents, discoloration, or broken clasps.  Often times the pieces we sell have not ever been worn and have the original tags.  Take a look at each listing for specific details.

Is the metal 14k gold or sterling silver?

Unless otherwise specified, most of the vintage pieces are not made of 14k gold or sterling silver.   The jewelry is made of durable metals that will not tarnish or rub off.  

How should I wear my vintage pieces?

Layer, layer, layer!  We love to mix the old with the new, traditional with boho, long chains with gemstone necklaces.  The sky is the limit!  Check out each listing for more styling ideas.  And follow us on Instagram @violetitigershop for more inspiration.  In fact, please share your look with us!

What is sustainable fashion?

Sustainable fashion brands create and/or sell fashion in a way which is most considerate of humanity and the environment, reducing the environmental impact whenever possible. The ultimate goal is to have a manufacturing and sales system which works without leaving a negative footprint.
