The November birthstone color, golden topaz, for personalized jewelry

There’s still time to get some pretty golden topaz rhinestones for your November birthday gifts (well if you’re in the U.S. anyway… it’d be a bit of a stretch for overseas). And using the birthstone color is a simple, pretty way to personalize your jewelry gifts!

Yes, it seems almost too good to be true – add leverbacks or french earwires and your DIY earrings are ready! (And if you need clip-on earring components just let me know, we can do that).

You can fuss some other time, and spend a lot more money. But you don’t need to. Make a pretty pendant necklace or personalized earrings for your gift-ee. She’ll love them 🙂

Peridot green vintage glass gems – BOGO sale

These beautiful glass jewels are vintage rhinestones I found a while back and was lucky enough to be able to restock – not always possible with true vintage. I love this sheer, clean color – peridot green without too much “lime” in the green – a super flattering shade and a customer favorite.

peridot green sheer vintage rhinestone earrings or pendant jewels are 18x13mm teardrops

These are probably the most popular style jewel I have available – teardrops that are large enough to be fabulous for earrings or pendants – but not so big they’re too heavy. These are 18x13mm teardrops – that’s approx. 3/4″ x 1/2″.

And if you mention this post, you get a BOGO sale price – buy this pair and get a second pair free. (Note – you can choose another color for your second – free – pair of jewels, if you like. Equal or lesser value, you know the drill!) And this offer is good for a full week – November 12, 2017 through November 19, 2017! You might not want to wait – this special offer is only while supplies last. (As of this writing I still have almost 2 dozen pairs left.)

These make wonderful Christmas gifts – and if you need gift earrings for an August birthday girl, these are her birthstone color!

Happy Halloween!

Really that’s all. That’s what I’m thinking about today. Life is a challenge for all of us these days (I suppose it always is, but it really feels like more right now, yknow?) So we need to enjoy the everyday things. Or the everyday Special things: like Halloween. We’ve got candy ready for the kids, we’ve got glow-in-the-dark bracelets, and a big ghost (and witch) out front. So – everybody – have a wonderful, safe, fun, yummy Halloween!

Oh sure, I have to post some pretty glass jewels. And these are orange and black, so they’re in the Halloween mood, right?

It’s a little late to purchase these jewels for Halloween… but you can always combine new colors – that’s always fun. Orange and green? Black and red? Red and green? (Think about Christmas – I know you are, already!)

Meanwhile – fun is what this whole day should be about. Enjoy!

Red vintage rhinestone earrings or pendant jewels

Sometimes, this is what it’s all about. Lovely vintage glass, present rhinestone jewels in silver or brass settings. Yes, you can get them in two-ring connector or link settings, or “no-ring” settings so you can make button earrings. And those are great. But this style? Add earwires and you’re good to go.

Vintage glass beads and a new Deal of the Day

Yes, my blog is called Vintage Glass Jewels – I was so thrilled when I started finding true vintage beads and stones! But then I realized I couldn’t maintain a steady, reliable supply, not all the time – so I started buying classic-but-NEW rhinestones. And they’re gorgeous and I love them. So now it’s like a treat, when I can resupply my true vintage stones. Like these gorgeous amethyst glass oval jewels 🙂

Red and orange glass teardrops – gorgeous DIY earrings!

A customer recently requested this unusual combination of colors – and I hope my pics have conveyed a little bit of the beauty, because they looked fabulous together! Vivid red and orange (hyacinth orange, to use the exact rhinestone name) aren’t usually used together, so that’s fine. But sometimes we like doing the unexpected, you know what I mean?

Of course what’s wonderful about these “multi stone” or “duo” settings is that you can choose the colors you like best. Tiny crystal rhinestones are gorgeous with the red teardrops. Or use emerald green and get ready for Christmas 🙂

“Choose your color” is the theme here. Just don’t worry about trying new combos!

Peach rhinestone earrings and pendants – Deal of the Day!

I think peach is one of the most underrated colors. It’s not bold and bright. It’s quieter than that. But it’s always feminine, always flattering, and for most skin tones, super easy to wear. I’ve got some lovely rhinestones and glass beads in coordinating shades of peach – and for tomorrow they’re featured as a new Deal of the Day 🙂
