Regency Jewels!
Regency jewelry is gorgeous! However, information on the company is somewhat scarce. To our best knowledge, the company began in the 1950s in New York City and continued until the 1970s. Best known for stunning rhinestones in fabulous colors, vintage Regency jewelry is beloved by collectors, including me! Here are some of the most wonderful examples!
