"Costume Jewelry Treasures With Veronica Staudt of Vintage Meet Modern"

Since publishing “What’s in Your Jewelry Box Graveyard?” podcast episode, several people have reached out asking for help understanding jewelry they own or have inherited.

In this episode of Jewelry Navigator Podcast, “Costume Jewelry Treasures With Veronica Staudt of Vintage Meet Modern, I’m continuing on a similar theme with the guidance from costume jewelry specialist and aficionado, Veronica Staudt of Vintage Meet Modern.

Veronica not only shares how several feature and styling elements of costume jewelry offer versatility for current times, but that many vintage costume collections are valuable, often commanding prices near those of fine jewelry.

As a former professional personal shopper, Veronica uses her styling skills to encourage her clients and Instagram audience to enjoy vintage costume jewelry as statement pieces to enhance occasional and everyday fashion.

Using the jewelry clues from Jewelry Box Graveyard Cheat Sheet (available in Jewelry Navigator Passport digital issue, Fall 2021) you may discover jewelry items that, while not made from precious metals or gemstones, they are still fun and enjoyable to wear.
