The bling is an eclectic collection of designer, vintage, and costume jewellery donated by Salt Spring Islanders. In the “bling” room, you will find necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, and miscellaneous items such as cuff links. We also sell bags of beads. There is something for everyone. Every year, we find that a certain item is in demand. Last year in 2019, much to our surprise, it was pearls!
We work with artisans on the island to help us appraise the higher-end pieces and identify hallmarks and gemstones. Solving the intriguing riddle posed by the hallmarks stamped onto a piece of jewelry involves skill, experience, and a wealth of knowledge.
Our prices are reasonable, ranging from $2 to $200. At the center of the bling room is a table draped in black velvet. This is where you will find the designer items, the gold, and the silver. Every year, we have a jewellery collection bin at Island Savings between May through to October. You are also welcome to drop off your gently used bling at Salt Spring Literacy.
