    Recycle, Renew, Reuse.

    Recycle, Renew, Reuse.

    Ecofriendly, recycle, reuse, renew and sustainability, these are all words that are at the forefront of many consumers’ thoughts.

    Here at North Coast Jewelry, we pride ourselves on renewing, reusing and being environmentally friendly. The pieces that we procure are antique, sometimes hundreds of years old. These pieces already exist, they just need to be found. That is when the treasure hunting begins.

    Our pieces come from numerous sources from all over the state, country, and sometimes the world! Sourced from individuals, shops, estate sales and more, The treasures cover a whole range of wear and tear. Many of our treasures need a good polish, have some minor fixes needed or are found incomplete, when this is the case, we take the steps needed to make the treasure wearable once again.

    Anything needed to complete an item is found, not created. We ensure that when fixing a piece, it stays era appropriate; gems are the correct age including the cut and style, as well as the metal we use. Old cut diamonds and gems are becoming harder to find. Due to recutting, sourcing them is sometimes more difficult, but an important task to ensure an authentic piece. We recycle and reuse vintage goods, giving them a new lease and a better future. No harsh chemicals, no waste and a product that can stand the test of time.

    The Art Deco era of the 1920s and 30s has been inspiring jewelry designs even to this day. Whenever anyone refers to a vintage piece, they mostly mean the Art Deco designs that took the market by storm in those days. The key characteristic of Art Deco jewelry, especially rings, lie in their symmetrical shapes, geometric patterns, curves, and colors. The use of motifs also makes these pieces stand out among others. 

    Recently many celebrities have flaunted Art Deco designs in their engagement and wedding rings, thus bringing the spotlight over vintage jewelry once again. Seeing Hollywood’s big names flaunting the style and creating a statement of their own has made vintage jewelry popular once again. 

    Let’s find out who all fell in that category.
