reclaimed, restyled and reinvented vintage jewelry
The Two Girls Gems collection is made by hand selecting quality vintage pieces and combining them with modern beads, chains and gemstones. Buckles, clips, brooches and chains are all reinvented; the transformation of each piece inspired by its unique vintage elements. The result is heirloom pieces for the next generation. We take pride in primarily using sterling silver or 14K gold or gold fill.

Thimbles have a long history and were often given as love tokens in the Victorian era when gifts between men and women were discouraged. When married the women would remove the bottom of the thimble to form a wedding band. The one above has a beautiful grape motif and is sterling silver (English hallmark) with a frame for engraving. We have hung it on a sterling chain with Labradorite and it can be worn long or wrapped around your neck - lariat style. We love these forgotten treasures of an era that has changed but not forgotten.
