When the word got out about all the fabulous vintage costume jewelry at Decades, our clients responded voraciously. Thank you for the calls, the emails, the visits to the store. We love seeing and hearing from you! A few of you asked for some "solid gold" jewelry, i.e., vintage costume jewelry with no bling so here are a few gold pieces that are hip, but not too blinding.

The two classic 80s Chanel necklaces look fantastic together. The duo of gold link chains with imitation pearls are so indispensable in one's wardrobe. You will wear these over and over again.

As for the cuffs, they are both Christian Dior, but one is unsigned Haute Couture from the 1980s in a beautiful woven pattern that you simply slip on your wrist which we guess means we should call it a bangle, not a cuff! The second is a genuine faux-gold cuff and has a spring opening and has a very mid-century vibe but is also 1980s and signed.
