Perfect for Vintage-Inspired Designs!




For anyone who loves the look of Vintage, Timeless, Elaborate Jewelry, then Vintage Inspirations is the perfect online store for you! While these pieces look expensive, the prices are extremely affordable.



The owner and designer, Liza, has been collecting vintage jewelry for many years, which inspired her to create & design her own line.   She’s enjoyed creating several designs for herself  & her customers & has had a very successful career in the jewelry making industry.  Liza focuses on keeping her line of jewelry pieces fresh by adding new colors and new items throughout the year.



The jewelry is composed of brass settings and accented with high quality SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and or vintage glass stones and cabochons.  Some of these stones are limited quantity of vintage stones or exclusive Swarovski colors, so get them while they last!  Each piece is professionally plated in either an antique gold, antique brass, or antique silver finish for that timeless appearance that never seems to fade.

Jamie Kole Jewelry

Upon graduating from Parson’s School of Design in New York City, Jamie Kole entered the field of cosmetic package design.  In time she realized that the opportunity for expressing her true artistic vision was not possible within this framework.  She set off in a new direction and began working with a renowned fashion designer in Soho.

Surrounded by spectacular vintage couture found in this designer’s workshop, Jamie discovered her passion for collecting and wearing these timeless treasures.  This passion evolved into her unique style of dress that people have come to know as “Jamie.”  She soon discovered that the accessories needed to complete her personal fashion story were non-existent.  This inspired her to create her very first jewelry collection.

Kole’s new collection, while both contemporary and vintage in its appeal, continues to lend the tradition of fine detail, femininity and impeccable workmanship inherent in the beautifully crafted fashions of the early to mid 1900’s.

Each piece is meticulously hand sculpted using Australian crystals over sterling silver or 14-karat gold-filled wire.  The artist orchestrates a magical interplay of light, form and movement to achieve her vision of delicate whimsy.

Jamie has been a Merchants Overseas customer since 2002!
