If animal prints are back in style, it stands to reason that animal jewelry is, too, especially if the items coming through Vienna Jewelry on Maple Avenue are any indication. Jewelry in the shape of insects and animals has been worn by women since ancient times, so we’re going to say that fine animal jewelry never goes out of style, and always make for great conversation.
No less than Cartier, Givenchy, David Webb, Tiffany, and Van Cleef & Arpels have introduced animal designs, many during the heyday of animal jewelry design from the nineteen forties through sixties. While many of those early designs were gem-encrusted, simpler pieces abound. You may find them at estate and garage sales, auction houses and websites and, because so many of them are vintage creations, there’s no better place to search for animal jewelry in the DC area than in pawn shops in Vienna, VA. Check out these walrus cuff links; they’re sure to convince you that no matter which animal you favor, you can find jewelry to accommodate.
If vintage is not your style, newer designs are following the trend, as well, so stop in to Vienna Jewelry on Maple Ave. and let us show you what we’ve got. Charms, pendants, rings, earrings, and brooches—the styles are as endless as animal species.
