    Etsy has very strict rules regarding vintage. An item must be at least 20 years old.

    I dunno...with Etsy I feel like it was once the home of the "Little Guy and Gal" and was truly a special place but more and more...you are competing with those that will post listings like this pumping out "Vintage" items like a swap-meet thrifter on crack.

    This also seems to be a very bad habit of this seller: Saltwater Pearls

    Following up. I checked the original "questionable" listing this evening and low and behold it has been changed to "Lovely 11mm Black Freshwater Pearl Necklace' I sent this e-mail to the shop owner:

    Hi Ed. I was pleased to notice that you have finally corrected the title on this listing from Tahitian to Freshwater pearls. You might also want to change this in the description and add to this information that the pearls are dyed. Do you honestly believe they are worth $1,595.00 ?
