Vintage pendant vs designer fashion jewelry

Post by delighted99 » Sat Apr 14, 2018 6:02 pm

I'm eyeing a few items on eBay. Mother's Day isn't too far away and I've discovered I like looking through what's on sale there.

It's coming down to.. do I want to get a pendant that is made of real gold (maybe real is a stretch.. more like 10K gold) or do I want to get some designer fashion jewelry? The vintage pendant is pre-owned whereas the fashion jewelry is not. Both are about the same price.

Thoughts? Experiences?

I think I would go for the vintage. It will probably be something that would be unique.

I would choose the vintage item, also. It is likely better quality and a more intricate design.

It depends on taste and style. Which calls to you the most. I am a bright, fashion jewelry type, personally.

Thanks for the replies. I managed to find a necklace that was sterling silver. I just couldn't do a gold plated item. Even if the plating remained for years. It arrives next week. Hope the quality is good.
