Pre-Owned & Vintage Jewelry
Jewelry can provide a sense of romance, a sense of history. Art, architecture, fashion all capture the feeling of a particular period in time. This is what you will find in Miriam's Attic, our attractively priced collection of pre-owned vintage and previously loved jewelry and a tribute to one of the previous owners of Continental Jewelers. Chrysa, the current owner of Continental says "My interest and fascination with antique and vintage jewelry started with Miriam Cohen's small collection of Victorian brooches and lavaliers. Yellow gold, some with citrine, one black enamel, were all reminiscent of a style that was the beginning of the industrialization age in the mid to late 1800's. As I learned more about vintage and antique jewelry I appreciated the delicate lace of the Edwardian era, the floral leafy patterns of Art Nouveau, the geometric forms of the Art Deco period, and the curvy sweeping lines of Retro. All of these and more can be found in Miriam's Attic".
