My grandmother, Ruby Nickens, was a fascinating woman. She collected a vast amount of costume jewelry in her lifetime (December 23, 1923-August 27, 2010). I was very lucky to inherit her entire collection. She collected everything from rhinestone earrings to Bakelite bangles. I’m am so excited to be able to honor her and showcase her lifelong collection. Each listing has a little piece about the history of her life followed by gorgeous macro photographs of each piece. Here are a few just wet your whistle.
While many pieces are unsigned, here are also a few brands that will be appearing in the collection:
- Sarah Covington
- Pididdly Links
- Western Germany & Austrian-made pieces
