Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Well, what is happening, my friends, is my obsession with online boutique Vineyard Vintage. It is the end all, be all of beyond amazing, vintage Chanel jewels.
Vineyard Vintage encompasses all things related to Chanel jewelry – necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, even pins and key chains – all genuine and authentic of course. Christina, the owner and creator of Vineyard Vintage, started seven years ago by selling on eBay and, after gaining some amazing clients, she decided to launch her own online boutique.
As for collecting the jewelry featured in her shop, Christina gave me the inside scoop on the different ways each piece is acquired. Sometimes it is through regular shopping trips (I'm available if you need an assistant Christina!) or there are also occasions when people will call her with jewels from family estates. Personal shoppers will also reach out with special and sometimes rare pieces for her to see, like this little stunner below:
So indulge yourself and take a little click over to Vineyard Vintage to see some of the most beautiful Chanel pieces out there. The jewelry above is just a small sampling of what you will find. But take my advice, if you see one you want, buy it asap. Each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind, so once it's sold, c’est la vie!
