When you make the decision to get a modelling portfolio compiled, you will have to choose outfits that present you in the way you want to be seen. You can't easily go and get another portfolio taken so it's best to get it right first time. One part of this is choosing the right jewellery and one craze of 2014 was buying vintage, or faux-vintage style jewellery. If you’re looking for vintage jewellery on the internet then be careful. By its very nature it is second hand and you should make your decision as you would when buying anything else that has been used. Always check the seller’s reputation and look at their other items to see if they match. If they have other jewellery for sale and a high rating then you will likely be happy with what arrives. If they have various things, TVs, cars, jewellery, then be extra careful as they haven't specialised in a certain area. Antique shops are all over the place nowadays and have varying standards.

The Model Factory have noticed that the definition of antique has changed over time and some stores are better than others in terms of the age and quality of their items. In the states, an antique is generally not as old as one in the UK for example. Antique shop owners have to buy a lot of their stock from auctions and perhaps even car boot sales. They look anywhere that old things are being sold and aim to buy as cheap as possible. You might enjoy going to local auctions or hunting around car boot sales to try and find a bargain. When you find a piece you like, check it for hall marks and make sure that any stones are secure in their fittings.
