The Eden Collective continues to offer some incredible pieces of antique jewelry, and the latest batch of acquisitions does not disappoint! Inspired by the summer season, Eden has been working hard on some flower rings and insect trinkets, most of which have been created using antique elements and incidentals. I love the idea of repurposing parts of jewelry, whether they are unwearable or broken, and turning them into treasures that can be worn and look cool! Eden knows all about that, having been brought along to auctions and sales with her father since she could remember! She loves all things antique and vintage, and with an eye for styling which she has done for many years, she is keen on what catches the eye!
The above photos depict the beauties she currently has for sale in her Etsy shop–if not listed, make sure to start a conversation with her to ask if certain items are still available, or what you’re looking for! I recently purchased a Date Ring, dated 1922, from her shop (pictured inset) and I am so in love! I have found that it pairs so well with other antique rings and is stackable too. Can’t wait to collect more!
