Why do I love antique jewelry?

One of the main advantages of collecting antique jewellery, as opposed to other works of art, is in fact that it can still be worn, and so put to its original use of decorating and complimenting fashion and beauty. some people enjoy collecting jewels for historical and academic interest, but it is also a fascinating challenge to choose jewels from a past age which will still flatter modern clothes and, at the same time, add the inimitable touch of old charm, a glimpse of another society, remote in customs, values, beliefs.
