Antiques come in all shapes and sizes, especially when in jewelled form. There’s something very special about antique styled jewellery, it has a sense of the heirloom about it, a preciousness if you like. It has also lasted a long time, genuine antique jewellery can have lasted decades in some cases. The jewels will look as though they are from another time, they will express the fashions of the day too. Wearing something with an antique feel, whether it be jewelery, a pendant or earrings will instantly give anyone a fashionable edge. There are antique elements in select pieces at Fruttituttibeadcandy, here are just some examples:
Vintage jewellery can be as bold and exciting as you want it to be. Accessories in the 60’s would have featured bright bold colours and floral shapes. Go back further to Victorian times and one will find that mourning jewellery in silver was a popular option. Any of the jewellery from the past is just as valid and wearable today as it was back then. In ace the more obscure and unusual your piece the better. It’s the filigree details that can make a great style difference in your outfit. I love the look that smaller filigree details bring. This earrings and bracelet set epitomizes all things vintage! It’s the small but noticeable fire polished beads, the swirl features on the links themselves.
Cocktail rings are also just so reminiscent of vintage jewels. It’s these big rings that really make a statement, in many cases they are all the jewels that one needs for that evening out. Cocktail and statement rings are available with or without gems, the main thing is that they are attention grabbing. I used a combination of subtle and daring in this ring, the bright pink of the faceted stone is offset by the filigree base in deep brass colour. A fabulous addition to your steampunk outfit or just a stunning ring to wear alone. Although large, the ring is light in weight and won’t cause any discomfort when worn. A passionate piece for the summer months and well beyond!
There’s never been a more fashionable time for unique head wear. Anything goes from the simple printed hair ties to the much more elaborate head pieces. If you adore the unusual and decorative, the tiara could be for you! What is there not to adore? It’s a sparkly way to jazz up any hairdo in night for the big day or a very special occasion. Although the tiara is seen to be opulent, there’s nothing stopping one from wearing it during the daytime for a special addition to take get together or eclectic summer picnic!
