Vintage jewellery has timeless appeal and has become increasingly fashionable. The same goes for all  jewellery, bags, scarfs and other retro accessories that evoke the charm of those golden days gone by! That's why your retro look just isn't complete without some vintage jewellery, especially during the festive season. Christmas dinner with your family and friends or Christmas drinks with your co-workers, the final month of the year is the perfect time to go all out on jewellery and standout accessories! 

Vintage accessories for the perfect festive look

I think of the most festive season of the year as the perfect time to go all out on jewellery. Statement earrings, lots of bling bling and arm parties: anything goes! Just make sure that everything is in proportion and that you don’t overdo it. After all, too much jewellery makes anyone look like a Christmas tree and I’m sure that’s not the look you’re going for? If a necklace isn’t a great match with your outfit, try a beautiful retro hair band or stylish earrings. Of course, you also need a little something to fit your smartphone, make-up and other essentials. A clutch is the perfect solution! Are you wearing a simple black dress? Pair it with a clutch adorned with glitter or sequins. But if you have opted for a standout outfit, a plain-coloured clutch is the best choice. I love it all! You can match vintage accessories with any festive outfit, it all depends on your own personal preferences. 

Vintage jewellery through the years 

Evoking the charm of the 1920s to the 1970s, antique jewellery is guaranteed to make you feel super feminine. If you wear accessories that match your clothes, you’ll light up the room during your Christmas party or dinner. If you’re dressing up for a chic occasion, 1920s style jewellery is a great match: big and bold. If you like a more subtle look, you could try jewellery with cute and dainty detailing, a style that was also popular in the 1950s, like: bows, ribbons, pearls and rhinestones. Anything goes and whatever you choose, one thing is guaranteed: vintage jewellery is perfect for adding some sparkle and shine to your festive outfit!  

Give the gift of antique jewellery, like rings and necklaces, this holiday season

Surprise your mother, sister, bestie or another special woman in your life by gifting her some gorgeous jewellery this holiday season! Jewellery is a very personal thing and that can make it quite hard to pick what you’re going to buy. First things first, is she a gold or a silver kind of girl? And what type of jewellery does she like to wear: earrings, necklaces, bracelets or rings?  Then comes the hardest part, determining the right size. If you want to surprise someone, you can’t just ask them what ring size or necklace length they wear. The best tip is to choose the most commonly worn length or size. This should make your Christmas shopping a lot easier!
