I've used them three or four times. Good results. I think a few others here have, as well.

They deal thru the mail all the time and have been doing it for years / decades.

Thanks to all who responded. I'll start sending out inquiries today.

In the field, found this without tags. Does anyone know what I'm looking at? The construction is pretty good and I know messenger bags are all the rage. Thank you!

When my wife and I got married back in 2014, we both wanted vintage rings as well.  We had a very difficult time finding actual vintage rings.  There are lots of vintage inspired rings.  We ended up getting a new ring for her that we designed to look like an art deco ring we saw.  My ring is actual vintage from the 60's.   There are quite a few men's vintage rings available on ebay (of course, that's risky with jewelry).  The only places that had vintage rings were small locally owned jewelers.   If you are into estate sales, sometimes you can find vintage rings at higher end estate sales.  But, make sure you know what to look for in terms of quality and authenticity.

I got my wife's engagement ring at a mom-and-pop jewelry shop in the back of an antique store.  I was just looking to get a bigger bang for my buck, not specifically hunting vintage.  So I don't know how old her ring is, but that doesn't bother me. She likes the style and look and that's good enough for us.  So if you're looking for a specific vintage, that's probably not the best way to go.  But if you are just looking to stretch your dollars and get something with a vintage style, I'd recommend the small local jewelers as well.  

 

FWIW, this was in Harrisonburg, VA.  Not a small town, exactly, but by no means a large urban area.  I suspect that smaller towns like that will yield better luck finding true vintage.  A lot more old folks passing on, and not as many rich folk buying jewelry.

It's about time. My friends in Atlanta will understand. More like $5 after the thrifted stuff I traded in.

Thanks for the kind words guys. Org, I know what you're saying, especially the made in Italy tag, looks super current. But the date is stamped right on the content tag, unless that is meant to denote something else entirely? I've got no clue. Styling is super current too.

Don't be so modest.  I haven't found that much over the Course of MONTHS!   

 

I had one estate sale haul that took a few Z racks to contain it all.  But, this is fucking crazy.  All this in a few weeks?  My finger got sore scrolling the mouse down the page.  It was like oh look another thing I would love to find and another and more, more.  

 

You really should have ended that page of finds with a Mic drop

@eazye proving why he's one of my favorite posters. Usually when there's a photo dump, I scroll through pretty quickly and stop on a couple things that catch my eye. Dude is so excited about the cool shit he finds that I find myself looking at things differently and really get an itch to get out again. (I mean, I actually stopped and was looking at the details of the Bill Blass coat in his post. I rarely do that in a store.)

Amazing haul @eazye ! That Caruso is modern...I'm on mobile, but I assume that date is 26.11.1973? If it is, it's in reference to Italian textile law, not a made date.
