Antique & Vintage Jewelry - This Jewelry Will Make Any Outfit Unique
The Rhineland-born Oliver Rheinfrank put all these unbelievable pieces of Antique & Vintage Jewelry together. After his studies of Art History he started working as a stylist in the film and media industry and then worked as a buyer for a big fashion house. In 1998 he moved to Berlin where he opened his gallery with its one of a kind selection of antique jewelry.
Yesterday afternoon I passed by the window of his store by chance and didn't realize at first that the pieces that were exhibited were vintage, because many of them seemed so modern. Bedded on velvet pillows I saw beautiful insects which later turned out to be actual brooches out of the Jugendstil and Art Deco time. I could see black jewelry, like the pieces worn by Queen Victoria after her husband’s death and later worn by a multitude of women that wanted to look like her, as well as cuff buttons, rings and necklaces from various decades.
How beautiful must some of the little artworks look on today’s simple fashion! Any outfit would become unique one with those pieces. Rheinfrank showed me a black ensemble made of earrings, a necklace and a bracelet: “worn with Issey Myake this is a hit”, he says. There is a reason he has clients from all over the world. Surely, i am not the only one who is thrilled about these unique pieces of jewelry.
