Paula says - "Hinged rings like this one are sometimes called "poison rings", with obvious meaning, but they have also been used to carry mementos, snuff, perfume, locks of hair, secret messages and other items. Also referred to as box rings or dose rings."

    Our Rescue Mission
    of
    Vintage Jewelry and Artifacts

    We are in the vintage jewelry rescue business and are passionate about finding new homes for used and vintage jewelry and artifacts. That's why we purchase Native American pieces from estates, inheritances, collection downsizing and New Old Stock (NOS) inventory from closed stores.

    Often people contact us after taking a box of Native American jewelry to their local pawn shop and find that a pawn shop is mainly interested in melt value of the metals and not in preserving the beautiful historic pieces. To hear that people have considered selling these treasures for melt value makes us truly sad.

    Melt value is usually far below what we would offer for the jewelry. Yet we can't pay retail price for items because of the time and cost involved in finding new homes for them. We have to research, often repair and restore the jewelry, photograph and list each item on our website, and sometimes hold pieces in inventory for years until the right buyer comes along.

    Items that are Mexican go in our Mexican Shop. Other items not Native American made or that we cannot verify as such go into our Bargain Barn where you can find some real treasures at low prices.

    We hope you'll find something special in our vintage shop that will complete yet another circle of our jewelry re-homing mission.
