What is vintage, really? February 10 2015

 

Most interviewers ask Susan an age old question; 'what is vintage, really?' because there are a number of varying definitions.
 
We asked her to share her own interpretation of the word vintage with us.
 
Here's what she said;
 
"My own definition of vintage is, 'something from a previous era'. Vintage, to me, is intrinsically connected to style. It is the idea that a piece of clothing, jewellery etc represents an iconic look; one which is associated with a particular period in time (and during which that piece of vintage was made). In my mind, the word era sums this up this perfectly" 
 
 Well, we hope that clarifies things a little. If you have any questions about vintage jewellery, don't hesitate to drop us a line at info@susancaplan.co.uk and write ASK SUSAN in the subject line. 
 
We look forward to hearing from you.
