Estate of Grace is a line from jewelry extraordinaire Beth Bernstein, who takes antique stickpins and brooches and redesigns them into necklaces, bracelets, and rings. No matter how much of a fashionistia you are, it is hard to wear antique pins and hatpins–they just don’t translate like they used to! Beth takes these brooches that would normally sit in a jewelry box, unworn, and makes them into pieces that are extremely wearable and collectible. Since working with antique jewelry on a daily basis, I can attest to the fact that Victorian stickpins and brooches are one of the most sentimental keepsakes from times past. Plus, they are composed of the most desirable motifs ever–like snakes, bows, enameled flowers, foxes, dogs, filigree shapes, etc. The fact that every piece in the Estate of Grace line is one-of-a-kind makes the collection even more desirable.  I’ve got my eye on a few pieces!  They can be purchased at select stores across the country, like Greenwich Jewelers, Zaver & Mor, G. Thrapp Jewelers, Eliza Page, Gallery of Jewels, among others.
