Seriously, isn't this the cutest necklace ever? It's a vintage owl necklace from the 1960s, in near perfect condition. It originally retailed for over $20.00, but I snagged it for around $8.00 from a friend, who had a lot of vintage things on sale in her shop. I find that it pairs well with a simple, white top :)
The necklace is quite long (even on me; I'm 5'10''), and has a bit of heft to it...and although the emerald eyes are fake, they have a really alluring, glistening quality. Best of all, the clasp is really easy to use, so you don't have to hold down the lever for five minutes while trying to get the other end of the clasp to attach.
Unfortunately, the Twin Cities doesn't have a very good selection of vintage jewelry items (well, at least not ones I can afford), but I lucked out on this necklace this time :)
Have any favorite jewelry pieces?
