Vintage Jewelry Collection: Kimberly Klosterman Jewelry
Today's selection of vintage jewelry comes from Kimberly Klosterman Jewelry, a collection we discovered on 1st dibs that is based in Cincinatti, Ohio. Klosterman began her career in antiques and art over thirty years ago, but now focuses solely on jewelry, which she describes as being her true passion. She says, "I've always loved unusual pieces, as a collector, I have focused mainly on jewelry that is wearable but unique – and always indicative of the period in which it was produced." As we perused her collection, we found that the majority of her collection is in fact very wearable - something that is not always the case when it comes to vintage pieces. Here we've chosen a few gold pieces that are both simple and uniquely detailed.
Citrine and Diamond Earrings, ca 1960. The stunning Madiera pear-shaped citrines are contrasted nicely by the round white diamonds surrounding them. The spiked edges give these earrings a modern and updated feel.
Gold Bulgari Long Chain, ca 1970. This long link chain necklace from Bulgari is elevated by the rope-like design on each gold link. It is both wearable and classic.
Gold and Lapis Watch by Roy King for Omega, ca 1965. This watch is 18k gold with lapis at the center. Roy King was known for using materials (like gold and hardstone) in innovative ways - like his bark finish design on this piece - which makes this watch a collectors item.
1960's Gold and Diamond Bracelet. This unique version of a gold link bracelet - the links are comprised of stylized gold nuggets - is 18K gold with brilliant cut diamonds dispersed throughout.
18K Gold Bulgari Coin Necklace, ca 1970. This necklace is bold but elegant, and is a classic bulgari coin piece. The 18th century coin is inscribed "Kingdom of Sicily - Fernando III - 1708."
Gold Tigers-Eye and Diamond Ring, ca 1960. A 12mm tigers eye, surrounded by yellow gold balls and round diamonds, is the focal point of this statement ring.
