Vintage Jewellery: How do you know what it is?!

After my last post I did a bit of research on vintage jewellery, Art Deco in particular, and realised that the brooch I bought is paste not marcasite! Such a schoolgirl error, so I thought I'd post this link where the Vintage Detective explains a little more about how to tell the difference between marcasite, paste, and rhinestones, all of which are heavily used in much of the vintage jewellery you'll come across.

More posts to come to update on charity-shop and boot-sale finds, but first I have to get a working day out of the way!
