Vintage Style Rhinestone Jewellery

Sometimes I just like to appreciate the sparkle that rhinestones bring! And the inspiration! Specially vintage rhinestones. There's something about the old packages and envelopes that shield the crystal glass... All the cuts and colors, many that are not made anymore.

Vintage Style Rhinestone Bracelets

There is a good selection of bracelets in mdmButiik.com Like these ones here - two bracelet cuffs and one bracelet. I really love the color of the purple oval, it's a bit opal and for the lot I have I see that each glass stone has its own hue and opal-opaqueness. Making them unique! 
Vintage Style Rhinestone Bracelets
The top bracelet cuff has shell motifs on both sides of sparkly "rivoli" faceted (Prec.) crystal.  And bottom bracelet consists of metal plates connected with pearl links. The vintage square shaped stones are bit "cloudy" but I find them as a fresh change from more common round rhinestones
