Autumn Fashions in Vintage JewelleryBy
I’ve been taking a look at all the fashions, glamour and style for this Autumn. There seem to be a lot of Vintage Jewellery being worn again this year so we can happily dig though our Grandma’s jewellery boxes and be right in style.
Taking a look around there seem to be several themes we can choose. Apparently chandelier earrings are back (eeeek, these are so heavy and catch on your clothes so perhpas best kept for glitzy occasions?)
Pearls and Cameos.
Lace and creamy colours are bang up to the minute this season. What could be better for wearing with these materials than Cameos and Pearls. Edwardian ladies worn lots of lace in creamy colours and they layered them with strands of pearls and the traditional shell cameo is just the right colour to tone well.
Red and Black
There’s lots of red and black jewellery about. So how about a red diamante brooch or some french jet glass beads. Or both? There are loads of options with red and black jewellery and you can either choose to wear one of the colours or both together. Here are some lovely old red glass beads from AntiquesAvenue, genuine vintage so added cachet for that too:
Lots of gold toned chains were big in the 1980s ( along with the hairdos if I remember rightly). Now these have been out of fashion for some time but they are now back. The good thing about this is vintage gold toned chains are cheap and abundant if you hunt around. I’ll be getting some soon for you to buy too. For years I haven’t bothered stocking these as no one wanted them , you will find this is the same with most vintage jewellery dealers – now is the time to buy before the prices creep up.
I hope you find this interesting – I’ll try a brief round up of vintage jewellery fashions each season from now on.
