Vintage Thursday Thingie: Jewelry box and jewelry

I received this little jewelry box in 1971-it was a bridesmaid's present! Let's look inside...An assorted collection of "jewels"...

from the beginning of the 1960s to the very end-a name bracelet and my high school ring ...
from the 1970s-these little plastic pins...oh how I loved that purple fish pin. I usually wore them on little knit hats...
still 1970s...a gift from friends in Japan...
and finally 1980s earrings...oh how I loved those titanium ones-closest I ever got to owning anything in the Memphis style. ( I can't wear either anymore...only gold or I get an infection.)
Hope you enjoyed this peek into my 1970s jewelry box. To see lots of interesting vintage treasures, hop on over to Coloradolady and check out this week's goodies.

Oh dear, Miri, if 1980's jewelry is considered vintage than I am so old I'm beyond hope!!!!

Wow! Those 80s earrings really reminded me of some I had back then in college. Fun trip down memory lane.

The titaniums are fabulous Miri, have you thought about getting a jeweller to change the backs for you?

Coloradolady said...

What treasures in your little box. Miri, this was a fun post, I remember having a box sorta like this with treasures stored in it. How I wish I knew what happened to that!! Have a great VTT!

Oh, what pretty vintage jewelry. I remember some pieces that I wish I still had. Must have gotten lost or something.

Love your jewelry box and the trinkets inside! The purple fish is adorable!

Those 80's earrings are just too hip. I used to be able to wear all kinds of earrings too, but now have to stick to just gold or my ears swell up and start itching (and who wants to see bright red, swollen earlobes).

Hi Miri,
Just catching up all all the goings-on and this is a really special little memory box you have.
I didn't do VTT this week, been just buried at work although I'm trying to get a post ready for the upcoming week. Its a good way to meet other bloggers:)
