Mostly Vintage & Custom Jewelry
Welcome to Peter’s Vaults
I grew up in the back of my dad’s jewelry shop, it was more than a repair shop, it was a small manufacturing plant where we built handmade rope chains, handmade Cuban link chains, and bracelets and lots of casting for special order rings, etc. so I was always looking over the shoulders of the jewelers while they were repairing, reconditioning or manufacturing a piece from scratch.
I find this art form fascinating and I’m always looking at people’s jewelry, always looking for trends but my focus here is on custom design and vintage jewelry and watches.
Jewelry has been a powerful tool of self-expression for thousands of years
