What if I told you, that you could purchase repurposed designer jewelry and help small businesses, promote sustainability, and not spend thousands of dollars to get all the designer jewels you desire? Interested? Well, keep reading!
Marhaba Vintage (@marhabavintage)
Laila Sultani started Marhaba Vintage only this year and has already gained over 2k followers! Laila states that “the ultimate goal of Marhaba is to remain timeless so that you can wear your pieces year after year, never having to worry about if it will go out of style.” Almost all repurposed designer jewelry she creates are attached to 14k/18k gold-filled chains and sell out very quickly. You definitely want to keep an eye on her stories and set an alarm for whenever she drops a new collection.
Old Soul Vintage Jewelry (@oldsoulvintagejewelry)
Ashley Lyon’s passion for all things vintage led her to create her upcycled designer jewelry company. She states, “new trends die out, but old souls stay fancy.” By combining repurposed authentic buttons and charms with high-quality materials, she is able to create affordable handcrafted vintage luxury jewelry. She restocks her site 2-3 times a week, and if a specific item is sold out that you are interested in, you can put in your email to be notified when it’s back in stock!
Villo & Co. (@shopvillo)
Neely Mullins is the creator of Villo & Co. and just recently launched their brand new website. She creates repurposed jewelry using designer buttons and charms that are imported straight from the Chanel factory in France and put on to 14k gold plated and sterling silver chains. She often has sales going on and is incredibly generous with her pricing. She even ships worldwide!
Golden Hour CO. (@goldhourco)
Zoey Katherine created Golden Hour Co. to “maximize the life of vintage pieces, support sustainability….and to assist in the conservation of resources”. The jewelry is made from authentic luxury shoes, bags, accessories, and clothing. While the chains are thrifted and also recycled. Not only is this girl boss only 22, but she runs a completely transparent company that even posts the process of reworking some of the jewelry!
Boutique Second Life (@boutiquesecondlife)
Boutique SecondLife describes their brand as “sustainable, ethical, luxury,” Which I fully agree with. They take old designer pieces that were unused and or just forgotten by their owners and redesign them into jewelry predicted to be on-trend. They are extremely transparent as well, showing the original pieces and then what they got turned into. About 3-4 days before launch, they share on their Instagram stories what the new collection is going to consist of. Then the day before the launch, they also do an entire blog post going in detail over the pieces, including prices and quantities. They are based out in London, so you definitely want to set an alarm (remember to convert to your time zone) for when their new collection drops as they sell out of most pieces within minutes.
I hope you check these ladies out because I absolutely believe in supporting small businesses and lets be honest…Who doesn’t love some designer jewelry?! Especially if its repurposed, sustainable, and ethical!
