Thousands of sparkling vintage gems, costume jewelry and Lucite vintage purses luster from floor to ceiling in the glass display cases inside Deco Jewels. Sourced from antique shows and flea markets, the brooches, bracelets, necklaces and cuff links all date from the 1920’s through the 1960’s, and the age alone makes each piece a treasure. The sculptural handbags come from the glamorous days of the ‘40’s and ‘50’s, and they all have their own special features with the mirror, lipstick and powder compartments that are hidden inside. What began as a dazzling hobby for collector Janice Berkson has become a full-blown business, and her rare and perfect condition finds keep people come back. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in Berkson’s SoHo boutique, she will start searching for your dream piece on her next buying trip.
