If you can be pressed to divulge :)

In Australia we are sadly quite limited in terms of vintage jewellery options and I watch a few stores on Etsy and insta but if anyone has places they think are worth watching or following would love to know.
I read the sticky posts but perhaps some gems are not on there

I love Jogani's stones. So much. Jogani.com I think it is. But search him on IG too because he posts incredible things.

Adam from Old world diamonds has the best and most diverse selection of old cuts anywhere IMO.

Grace from Jewels by Grace has some very yummy pieces.

Then there is Sincityfinds. She finds some amazing pieces at great prices. Love her IG. And she is also on etsy I think as well as her own website.

Gildedlane has amazing pieces too. On IG and etsy and I think she has her own website as well.

There are more but right now I am drawing a blank. I will return with more recs as they come to me.

Hey @maryjane04 thank you was following a couple of those but thrilled to find additional options
Did I also mention Ivy and Rose? You're probably already following them.

I found a few recently of Aussies selling on Facebook. They don't actually have a store, I think it depends on what you're looking for...

Im in Canada, and just bought a little (my first) OEC Art Deco ring from Jane Vining. She was great to work with, and I actually picked it up in person. She is local to Ontario, but told me she is on Ruby Lane and sells a lot to the States! :)

On Etsy I bought from Maejean off Etsy they were really good to deal with as well, a lot of their stones are lab stones though, I did buy a vintage real moonstone ring from them.

I too window shop with Alex from Parks fine groups, jewels by grace, the treasure hunting queen and sin city finds. Too bad I'm not in the states, actually, its better haha my wallet thanks me! As duties, currency conversion and brokerage hurts the bottom line. But so much eye candy to see!!

Thanks @missy @Cina_s and @mommylawyer

I too watch Alex Parks I am more into vintage and coloured stones at the moment but when I can afford a larger diamond I will be sitting up all night stalking some of these vendors

I often look at the price and get an idea of what conversion will be in my head and think “oh that’s not too bad” then I actually convert it on PayPal and add shipping etc and I have to let it go lol

hahaa I'm the same. the conversion and duties makes it hard to open up my wallet. But choices are so much better in the States.

If ur here in Canada you can try 100ways they have some vintage. But not like Grace's high end vintage. Less OEC and OMC choices there. But some fun 60s to 80s styles and some other older vintage pieces too. I've bought a few things there and its great for me in Canada as there is no duties and free shipping.

I too love colour stones and vintage too!

I’m in Australia and have noticed there are a few Australian groups on FB the exclusively auction and sell antique and vintage jewellery. I have also noticed the same pieces then getting sold for more through Etsy and eBay afterwards. You really are taking a big chance that the piece is what they say it is though. ‍♀
Still worth a look.

Our exchange rate is pretty sad and then the taxes too. Hopefully we get some more good antique shops locally.
