Les Bijoux Extraordinaire


 In addition to our fabuleux home and garden décor, Vignettes also showcases many top name jewelry dealers and designers who are exclusive to this shop and their collections of les jewellery spectaculaire are well worth a visit here.
From rose gold to 18 carat, costume to designer, (Chanel and Tiffany) bakelite, micro mosaic, sterling silver and hammered silverware, to precious stones and antique diamonds, the selection is monumental and covers all time periods and each vendor was hand-picked for their amazing, specialized offerings.
Most notably, we proudly feature the largest collection of Edwardian engagement rings in all of San Diego. 
These beautiful, circa 1910 rings in platinum or white gold with diamonds ranging from 1/2 carat on up, each with a certified appraisal, stand unparalleled in their design and old world craftsmanship and come from a time of standards and workmanship that no longer exists in today’s mass produced world.
