  Vintage jewelry, much like vintage clothing, never goes out of style. In a world filled with repurposing and recycling, vintage jewelry has been making a comeback. Replicas of beautifully crafted and ornate pieces are found everywhere. However, if you want to find authentic and unique vintage and antique jewelry pieces, go no further than Richland's very own Black Cat Relics Antiques & Vintage Charm.

   Black Cat Relics specializes in antique & vintage jewels. Leah brings back the beauty and timelessness of true vintage jewelry. We go from the Early Victorian, romantic jewelry of the mid 1800's through the 1970's of the bold and beautiful! We adore the divinely decadent Edwardian Era and the breath taking sparkles of the 1950's where Hollywood starlets brought it alive.

   If you are someone who loves a piece of beauty, just getting into collecting, or a novice collector, come on in and talk with Leah and find out about the hundreds of authentic pieces that she has to share with you! It's guaranteed...you won't be disappointed!!!

 This is what history is all about! Preserving and honoring those before us! This is why I am addicted to what I do! The history that this piece holds is amazing within itself. Combining utility and beauty, chatelaines were a form of functional jewelry worn hanging at the waist. Comprising a hook and multiple dangling chains attached to small, useful objects (scissors, writing utensils, keys, purse, watch, perfume vial, etc.) chatelaines were hooked to a sash, belt or waistband. Visible storage worked in intricate designs of silver, enamel or gold, chatelaines were also an expression of authority. Chatelaines usually adorned the “keeper of the keys” for a large household and signified a position of familial and social authority. This was a clear visual expression of the literal meaning of chatelaine, a mistress of the chateau. Though their origins are a bit obscure, the chatelaine probably developed sometime in the Middle Ages, enjoying periodic revivals through the late nineteenth century. In the nineteenth century, chatelaines were usually worn by women. As the century progressed, variations on the chatelaine emerged, including the chatelaine pocket or chatelaine bag. Unlike a chatelaine which featured multiple items dangling from an elaborate hook, a chatelaine pocket or chatelaine purse showcased one item, a small pouch or purse. Purse and pocket chatelaines were particularly popular from the mid-1870s until the early 1880s. During these years, the fashionable silhouette clung tightly to the hips and upper legs and would have been disrupted by a pocket, especially if it was actually in use. The leather Chatelaine purse was used for outside the home, as an evening purse. Absolutely wonderful piece of history!
