Elizabeth Jefferson opened “Heart of Gems” in January 2015 to sell costume vintage jewelry. Her “Heart of Gems” vintage jewelry business is her third career. First she spent 17 years as a medicinal Ph. D chemist, then she began working as a health and fitness expert with Scripps Health in San Diego. Still in San Diego, Elizabeth’s primary passion is costume vintage jewelry.

Elizabeth collects D&E Juliana, Sherman, Schiaparelli, Trifari and Czech treasures. She visits local estate sales and vintage markets from around Southern California and curates items in very good to excellent condition. Elizabeth’s passion for costume vintage jewelry allows her to build an extraordinary inventory of previously owned treasures so that you can adorn them once again!
