I don't know about other cities, but EVERYWHERE you go in Houston there are places buying gold and silver. There seems to be one every block or so with crazy people out waving signs and arrows. Apparently everyone is selling their gold and silver jewelry for cash as fast as they can. I've never really been a fan of gold but I am worried about silver. I love silver jewelry and would hate to see it go extinct. Here are some pieces I found on Etsy - so glad they didn't have them melted down...
These earrings are stamped and signed. A very wearable style from Taking Shape.
This is so gorgeous! A treasure from thebestvintage.
This flask is a work of art. SilverMagpies has lots of beautiful and useful silver items.
This ring is exactly my size. Might need to get it from GreenEyedEnvy.
Silver bangles are my favorite. Love this one from hmael.
My parents had a lot of silver pieces they would have received as wedding gifts. I loved the job of polishing the silver when I was a kid! This set is from rovervintage.
How sweet is this antique brooch? Hand painted miniature in a silver frame from ParisAtelier.
Another pretty bangle from DecoratingYourself.
Off to look through my jewelry and polish my silver...
