Camphor

^ Earring and pendant set - $750

A couple of weeks ago I came across camphor jewellery, something I had never seen before. I am now completely enamoured with it! Camphor refers to the type of glass used in the jewellery. Thats about all I know with regards to camphor glass jewellery, but from what I have seen so far, there is usually a frosted pattern in the glass, or it is completely frosted. It seems to have been very popular around the 1910's and 20's, as most pieces are I've found are from that time. The easiest examples of camphor to find are the pendants, which are usually encased with beautiful filigree work, and centred with a rhinestone or diamond. The pendants nearly always have a beautiful chain as well, making them extra exciting! Anyway, enough talking, here are some pretty examples...  

Pendant - price unknown


Pendant - price unknown


Earrings - £165


Pendant - $138


Pendant - $75


Pendant - $895


Pendant - $159


Bracelet - $115


Camphor rings are few and far between, but just as lovely as the pendants - $265


A.M.A.Z.I.N.G ring - price unknown


Pendant - $295 


Here is the necklace I chose as my first piece of camphor jewellery. I wanted a rectangular pendant, and chose this red one as it is more unusual to find camphor pieces with colour to them.
 I'll do an outfit post incorporating my new necklace later on today.
