Vintage jewelry has an enduring versatility that many other types of jewelry simply lack. Wearing vintage jewelry follows much of the same rules as you would with any other type of jewelry.
Combinations are important, a ruby gemstone pendant or ring can set off a white ensemble with a splash of vibrancy and color. Yellows and green colors work well with more complex outfits and vintage pendants and necklaces are best worn with an exposed neckline. Floral designed jewelry works well this summer and can be worn with more casual outfits as well as more elegant and classic looks.
The general rule of vintage jewelry is less is more. Many pieces are more complex and over-sized than modern jewelry so wearing one piece, or a maximum of two pieces will provide the most desired effect.
Antique bracelets can be frightfully expensive, but if you have any broken or unwanted pieces of vintage jewellery then you can create your own traditional charm bracelet just by using a lobster clasp bracelet.
