Watching these programmes has given me an idea for the blog: I shall now label my posts about my vintage finds from charity shops, car boot sales and other places with 'Vintage Hunter'. Okay, this is a lot more low rent than the above TV programmes and there's no way that I'm starting up my own Youtube channel, but I thought it would be a fun way to do it.
So to kick it off I'm starting with this ring I brought in a local charity shop at the weekend:
I love my rings to be bold and chunky and this one certainly fits the bill. Its a foil-backed glass cabochon in a claw setting mounted on top of an adjustable ring. It doesn't have any maker's marks, but I reckon that this cocktail ring probably dates from the 1950s. The foil has started to discolour a bit, but I love it - especially as it only cost £1. I know its not exactly in the Liz Taylor stakes when it comes to jewellery....
