Accessorizing was first established by Earth, which decided to adorn its curvaceous, celestial body with a bright, dangly moon. Decorate your own being with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of new and vintage jewelry at Victoriana Antique & Fine Jewelry, located in historic Larimer Square.
Victoriana Antique & Fine Jewelry stocks shelves with handpicked relics and vintage accessories ranging from authentic Victorian pieces to modernist baubles from the 1950s. Proprietors scour jewelry shows and contact international buyers to scare up authentic, top-quality pieces instead of candy necklaces covered in dust to appear and taste older. Century-old cases shelter a variety of outfit enhancers, including simple sterling-silver earrings ($20) and engraved oval lockets ($145) from the 1890s. Add antediluvian-flair to straight-laced garments with a piece of costume jewelry, such as a buckle-styled art-nouveau brooch ($85) or an aqua brooch ($145) with dangling turquoise teardrops wiped from the eyes of proud papa unicorns at their colt's graduation. Customers can also apply their Groupon toward more expensive in-store merchandise ranging from onyx brooch and ring pairs to 1930s white-gold rings.
Victoriana fits into aristocratic afternoons spent visiting the elegant restaurants and other boutique shops that line Larimer Square. Temporally minded shoppers receive a 40% discount off the shop's selection of new Citizen timepieces. Watchsmiths behind the counter also offer battery replacement ($12), performing proper button-cell funerals by sailing them down a river in a flaming grandfather clock.
I looked around quickly and wow, what a selection they have. It's not the usual jewelry store, there are some really unique and gorgeous pieces in hereLucy T., Yelp, 11/29/10
