CASH FOR GOLD: Among the talking points during Wednesday night’s CFDA panel discussion on the influence of costume jewelry in fashion (panelists included Cameron Silver of Decades, Candy Pratts Price of Vogue, Janie Bryant of “Mad Men” and Gabrielle Fialkoff of Miriam Haskell) were the well-parsed topics of producing in China, placement on Michelle Obama and the fact that costume jewelry is popular right now. Also, flea markets are a good place to shop for it.
Perhaps the most interesting yet irrelevant thing to emerge from the 45-minute session was Silver’s anecdote about a client who melted down her mother’s vintage gold belt and was paid $9,000 for it. The lesson: Selling your vintage gold fashion is chicer than pawning it.
