The above picture is of a ring given from a great aunt of mine. I am absolutely obsessed with it and it has only left my finger for the photo. I think that now in times of recession, vintage options are definately a way to go. Because everything old is new again, going vintage is a great way to stay in fashion and within a budget. A favorite spot of mine in Toronto is a store calleed 69 Vintage on Queen St. If you are in town, definately stop by and see what they have.
