Jewelry can subtly communicate its wearer's personality, with color representing mood, size corresponding to confidence, and charms spelling out what to prepare for dinner tonight. You are what you wear with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of handcrafted jewelry at The Vintage Pearl.
The Vintage Pearl, featured in Glamour magazine, artfully accessorizes patrons with hand-stamped, raw sterling-silver jewelry dotted with freshwater pearls and birthstone crystals. Customers can send a mother's heart soaring with the Mama Bird necklace ($25) or wear their hearts around their sleeves with the Love Links bracelet ($52+), which can be personalized with names or important dates. Shoppers can adorn a thin leather cuff ($35) with a word of inspiration, such as "courage" or "hot dog," or hide a secret message, such as "eat a hot dog," inside a sterling-silver ring ($45). An arsenal of keepsakes, including baby spoons ($25), cuff links ($25), and dainty drop earrings ($20), rounds out the selection of customizable, one-of-a-kind creations. Designer Erin Edwards donates a portion of her sales to nonprofits such as The Mercy House and Tulsa Dream Center.
The Vintage Pearl
Designer Erin Edwards started tinkering with jewelry using tips she picked up from Googling or reading books. She used her research to found The Vintage Pearl, where—along with her team of hammer-wielding artisans—she now oversees a vast collection of custom sterling silver jewelry adorned with pearls and birthstone crystals. Featured on the pages of Glamour, each piece comes hand-stamped with personalized messages, including names, dates, or locker combinations available in a wide range of fonts and designs.
