VPOD Hi/Lo: Vintage Diamond and Gold Heart Earrings

Vintage 1990s 14k Diamond Heart Earrings Vintage 1980s Cartier Vintage Heart Earrings

Introducing Hi/Lo, an occasional feature that presents two similar vintage items with very different price points.  Can you guess which is which?

Valentine’s Day is this Sunday and if you haven’t been peppering your significant other with clues about what to buy for you, it’s time to start! A good friend of mine made it very clear to her now-husband that she was to receive no gifts that had electrical plugs–ever!–and that jewelry would always be welcome. And when it comes to men, it’s not a bad idea to make your wishes this clear since subtle hints have a way of being drowned out by whatever else is going on between their ears.

Letting your guy know in no uncertain terms that you’d appreciate vintage jewelry this Valentine’s Day is also an easy way for him to get more bang for his buck. Take today’s VPOD. One pair of these fabulous diamond heart earrings are by Cartier and valued to be thousands of dollars (but still about half of their original retail). The other look-a-likes are 14k gold and at a waaaay lower price point.

I’m willing to bet that either pair would be a welcome Valentine’s Day gift for a vintage fashionista!

Available at Beladora.
