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.

Long Layering Necklaces 

The Layering look for winter elegance is sophisticated, elegant and easy. This season we are particularly into our long layering necklaces, they are so easy to throw on and versatile. Long or short the look you want is easily achieved.

We love using antique gentleman's pocket watch links combined with new beaded gemstones. In addition the two toned combination makes it easy to mix and match with either gold or silver. Labradorite is a great gem that brings out the hues of both gold and silver. Mixing the different textures of the chains and making them asymmetrical can give the illusion of multiple chains when you double just one up around your neck for a shorter chain look.

 Long chains became a popular look in the 1920s with the flapper dress. The long chains created movement and drama and along with the short flapper dress the elongated strands seemed to flaunt the provocative hemline.

                           Gearing up for the Holiday shows 
 This year we have four holiday shows to gear up for. The picture above is Sarah setting up at the WAC the Women's Athletic Club downtown Chicago just off Michigan Avenue. What a beautiful historic building. They still have an elevator man who operates the motor controlled lift. No automated landing positions so you have to "watch your step" as the elevated cage door opens for you on your floor. 
Our next stop this season will be November 14th at the Northbrook Hilton Hotel for the 10th annual Girlfriends Breakfast & Boutique sponsored by Friends of Youth Services. Visit our website for all the details and our other events.
