Ruth's Vintage Costume Jewellery

Ruth has always loved vintage costume jewellery and has quite a number of followers at the fairs that we do. Most of the items you see here have come from one incredible find. A huge collection from a shop that closed in the 1970's, the whole lot, amounting to many large boxes, being in storage for the last 40 years.
