Before The House Of Lavande launched their own jewelry collection in 2012 they were known as dealers in high-end vintage jewelry (I will not use the word "curators", I promise). They still locate and sell gorgeous older pieces, some signed by designers, others-- like the Victorian necklace above-- from unknown makers. I adore and collect vintage jewelry, and can spend half a day browsing their site and admiring the baubles. Of course, you pay a premium when someone else is scouring flea markets and estate sales for you, so don't expect any bargains among these treasures. Right now I'm coveting this brass necklace. $548, houseoflavande.com.
