Reference Materials

Researching vintage costume jewelry is a fun project for collectors and dealers.  We always want to put a date to our pieces or find out more about the designer or maker who created it.  If only the jewelry could talk to us!  Emerald City's inhabitants have worked together to bring you these reference materials and new information will be added to keep this an ongoing project.
