Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend - Pink Saturday

Vintage Rhinestones

I can't afford diamonds....  so, I go for the next best thing.
Vintage Rhinestones!
I LOVE anything with rhinestones.  The bigger the better!
Bling baby!  Bling!
I was so happy when I found this huge collar style necklace.  Yeah!
and at my local flea market!
It's from the 40's - 50's.  The stones are huge and prong set.  It's very heavy.
These pieces are getting harder and harder to find so I know how lucky I am.
What a wonderful find.

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Linking today with Beverly

I love those old vintage rhinestones. I have several pieces that belonged to Grandmother Clara. They are just wonderful, sweet reminders of a glamorous era, aren't they? Yours, and your displays, are beautiful! xo Diana
