VINTAGE BLING...

My all time favorite .it's going to be hard to beat this one.solid silver with fake precious stones.one is MIA i don't know were to go for a fixing.....
Looks like :"the great Zoltar" from the fortune teller machine.....
Nice example of a solid silver novelty skull ring from the 50's....
This one is from England ,it's a victorian era solid silver pill box ,transformed into a pendant ....
I just need a cool chain for it ....


Did a post ,not so long ago ,about my modest collection of ww2 military rings,or what's left of it .I thought, it'll be interesting to showcase today, some of the other bling i wear as it might give vintage enthousiasts ,a different perspective than your over seen and way over priced mexican biker's rings ......well you tell me .

  1. du bling bling pur et dur!!mais avec une classe de bad boy!!
    J'ai un faible depuis toujours pour les "pendant",Galcia au Japon fait des choses trés sympa...
    Toujours des choses exceptionnelles à nous montrer, un puit sans fond?!
    En tout cas, c'est toujours un régal de passer par chez toi...

  2. Great bling-blings… I like your magicien or ottoman… I really apreciate this carnival style where cheapest old things could become real jewels… One day I will call you the story of "FRAN TOUT PAS" a 30's magician from Toulouse, friend of Mister Oudini. 7 years ago I failed an original 40's backscene of this misterious man in an antiquity shop (oil painting in approx 1m x 1,50m) I,ve bought a jumo lamp in the shop and havent enough money…2 days later "FRAN TOUT PAS"was missing…It was bought buy the other vintage collector of 30's/50's items in Toulouse…Mister PAtrick Lemoine, Yannick's brother that you know well… I'm still regreting this burlesque and fabulous painting… grrrr
    ps : I told Mister Freedom Loiron that you will contact him… "Il est ravi…"

  4. That swami ring is amazing! You can get replacement rhinestones (most likely these are glass) at almost any bead shop. I'm sure they are probably several in your area.
