Cleaning Does Pay Off! Surprise Vintage Jewelry Finds

cuffs7

This lovely vintage bohemian garnet brooch was MIA. Couldn’t find it. I had been searching for it everywhere and was beginning to think that I had put it in lot of newer costume jewelry to go to auction. This made me nervous, angry with myself and of course a bit sad.

Well, the other day I was cleaning out some jewelry boxes and lo and behold this is what I found:

Lots of forgotten bracelets and the brooch! How that brooch got in there is a mystery. There is an obvious theme of bangle bracelets and then this lonely lovely brooch.  Many of the bracelets I have had for years and used to wear frequently. Perhaps I stopped wearing them because the box they were was lonely and forgotten. This still doesn’t solve the mystery of the single brooch but that is ok with me!

So I guess cleaning and reorganizing does pay off. One of those tasks that I least enjoy but maybe now I will look at it as an adventure. I may just find some forgotten treasures like the ones below.
