Vintage Museum Replica costume jewelry
Over the past decades, since about the 1970s, it has become a good tradition for large museums to create jewelry. Traditionally, these are replicas of old jewelry, paintings and botanical illustrations from the museum’s funds. Classified as costume jewelry, these pieces have markings of these museums and are highly sought after. So, among the museums – manufacturers of high quality jewelry – MFA (Museum of Fine Arts), MMA (Metropolitan museum of art), NGA (National gallery of Art), VMFA (Virginia Museum of Fine Arts), MAD (Museum of Arts and Design), and others. However, the jewelry pieces of other museums are rare, but also highly valued. Among them are the Concord Museum, Guggenheim Museum, Mark Twain Museum, Shelburne museum, Vermont, North Carolina Museum of History, and more.
Artfully handcrafted with gilding, metal alloys, high quality enamels and art glass, this replica jewelry is a work of art in itself.
