I love the detail and craftmanship in vintage jewellery and some of the vintage pieces by top designer names such as Christian Dior are great collection pieces. Not only are they exceptionally well made with beautiful designs they tend to retain their value or increase in value as the years pass. Some stunning Christian Dior jewellery can be found at www.modernvintagestyle.co.uk
