A lot of weird things happen with the internet. Sometimes they’re weird and wonderful. Other times, well, let’s not go there. In this case it’s the way in which through the internet, things wriggle into your life and integrate themselves into your thoughts before you’ve fully realised what’s happened. Things that you were previously unaware of enter your life by happenstance, are acknowledged briefly on your radar and before you know it, they’re everywhere you turn. 

For me, that thing is Farfetch and their glorious vintage jewellery selection. 

It happened while I was mindlessly watching YouTube and folding laundry (#glamlife). I noticed my firm favourite, Retro Flame – a magpie when it comes to both designer and vintage finds – was wearing a stunning sapphire necklace with earrings to match. As if reading my mind she addressed them in her video, drawing my attention for the very first time to the vintage jewellery available at Farfetch. I made a mental note of it but thought nothing of it, instantly dismissing it with the assumption that it would be much too expensive.

The next video – watched while still doing laundry – came from YouTuber and Instagram influencer, Lissy Roddy. Halfway through she began unboxing some recent purchases. She got to the jewellery, a vintage Chanel pendant, that she’d ordered from – you guessed it – Farfetch. 

A quick scroll through Instagram in the days that followed and my news feed was filled with Farfetch tags and their apparently very popular, vintage jewellery.

What followed was a lunch hour spent trawling through their many beautiful pages of jewellery, building an expensive wishlist for myself and practically drooling over my keyboard – not the most sophisticated behaviour from someone daydreaming about designer jewellery. 

Other than the many jewels catching my eye, what surprised me most about Farfetch’s vintage jewellery is that a good portion of it is affordably priced. I mean, yeah, sure, you’ve got Chanel earrings listed for £1,404 with the most expensive item coming in at £7,555, neither of which I’ll be splurging on any time soon. However, whittle that price toggle closer to the £50 end of the spectrum and switch that filter to low to high pricing and hey presto, we’ve got ourselves some hidden (affordable) gems.

My best finds? I’ve obviously included in a gallery for you all.

Those of you yet to send off your Christmas wish lists, thank me later. In fact, do yourself a favour and just share this gallery with your loved ones. That should get the message across clearly.
