Something Old, Something New: Vintage Jewellery for Brides

It’s official, vintage is in.

Vintage clothes, vintage cars, vintage music , vintage hair and make-up styles, and vintage jewellery are extremely popular, and with good reason.

The timeless class that is synonymous with certain vintage items proves their superior, transcendental nature. There are so many vintage jewellery replica pieces in high-street shops now; but why settle for a copy, when you can have the real thing?

Instead of banishing old, broken jewellery, that your grandparents left you, to a jewellery box that is hidden away, why not get them repaired for your wedding? Let them be your something old!

Why not channel 1920s, Great Gatsby-esque glamour with vintage headbands and geometric shapes.

Emulate 1940s wartime glamour a la Dita Von Teese with a low-side parting and waved hair to show off stunning, chandelier earrings.

 

Draw inspiration from the 1960s and layer chunky strands of lustrous pearls, in the style of Audrey Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

If you do want to match your bridal look to your beautiful vintage jewellery, why not incorporate other aspects of vintage style too?

Choose a vintage ‘up do’ hairstyle and incorporate a vintage-inspired hair comb!

Alternatively, style your hair in vintage style waves and pin back one side behind your ear. This is a great way to show off fabulous vintage pearl earrings!

Make a glamorous impression and deviate from natural nails and make-up. In true vintage style, rock red lipstick and nails! This classic combo has been in style for more than  100 years and you can guarantee it will always look chic!
