Buying Authentic Vintage Necklaces Online
For people like myself that believe in wearing authentic vintage jewelry, Ebay is the best resource for vintage necklaces, both vintage fine jewelry, and vintage costume jewelry. To let you see what I mean, I have listed several types of vintage necklaces in this article for you to take a look at.
Authentic vintage jewelry is available in just about every price range from $1 on up depending on the rarity and the materials used in that particular piece of vintage jewelry. You can use a price guide such as the Warman’s Vintage Jewelry: Identification And Price Guide shown left to help determine fair price. While this article is about vintage necklaces, the rules apply for all vintage jewelry.
It is important to make sure that the Ebay seller you are buying from has a good reputation. You can tell by their star rating and selling history on Ebay. Whether you are buying a vintage plastic necklace or a vintage gold necklace, you want to purchase from a reliable vendor.
Another factor is knowing whether you are buying an authentic vintage necklace or a vintage style necklace. Reliable vendors will tell you this, but check the details of the listing, because often vintage style necklaces are listed along side of the authentic vintage necklaces.
Vintage necklaces have changed from era to era, but examples of vintage necklaces are for sale from every era including fine gold and silver necklaces, Swarovski crystal necklaces, beaded necklaces, plastic and lucite necklaces, and glass necklaces. You can find a vintage necklace for just about any outfit, and in most cases you will pay a lot less than you would have if you bought a new necklace. Not only that, but you will be wearing a piece of history around your neck.

Copper has always been less used to make jewelry than other metals, but copper necklaces have a unique look and feel to them. Vintage copper shows its age, by the patina on the copper, and gives the vintage copper necklaces a look that cannot be duplicated in necklaces today.

Vintage Brass Necklaces
Brass is a material that has not been used much in the last several years but is quickly making a comeback. You can find many inexpensive vintage brass necklaces on Ebay.
Vintage brass has an elegant patina that goes both with dressy or casual clothing, and especially looks good on long necklaces to wear with winter turtleneck sweaters or with lace shirts or dresses. Vintage brass necklaces look equally good with a formal business suit in a work situation, and adds an air of quality to a basic black dress.

Vintage Glass Necklaces
Glass holds color like no other material and has been used through the last decades as a cheap way of making jewelry. Vintage glass necklaces have colors that are not currently manufactured in glass today, and are work well as an accessory to a women’s business suit.
Vintage glass necklaces come in gorgeous czech glass beads on chokers, in large and small pendants, and translucent and opaque glass colors. Most of the vintage glass necklaces are either made of glass beads or glass cabochons or a combination of the two.

Vintage Estate Jewelry
If you are a vintage necklace collector, then keeping an eye on vintage jewelry sellers on Ebay is a good idea. Vintage sellers find vintage necklaces everywhere but especially in estate sales. Estate sale vintage jewelry is often high quality, and sometimes made of precious metals–gold, silver or platinum, or precious stones.
My personal favorite of the precious stone vintage necklaces are made with a combination of marcasite and garnets. I have listed some examples of marcasite and garnet necklaces on this page for you to look at, and you can follow the links to see more.
Vintage necklaces show the history of jewelry making, and are a piece of history that you can own for yourself. But the best thing about vintage necklaces is that they are pretty, sparkly, and fun too wear.
