Gold is a color that has been hidden for a long time and now it's back. It represents the eras of the 60's-90's in vintage jewelry so well. Beginning in the late 1970's the French designers I speak about come much more front and center with the costume jewelry to represent as much about the collections as the actual collections themselves. Big, substantial pieces emerge with lots of drama, texture and the WEIGHT! YSL, Christian Lacroix, Dior, Hermes, Chanel, Lanvin, Claire Deve, Dominique Aurientis, Francoise Montague and many others. Pieces are created that are special. They are more special today as they are rare and unusual.
They add style to any style. Dressed up or Dressed down....a set of bright gold matching cuffs with a large necklace will always say statement. Layer the chains. Big earrings look amazing. There is no right way and no wrong way. Wear a diamante pin on a beaded sautoir trailing down your back or lariat style with a white blouse. Try it and see what you come up with. You and your choice of the day come alive.
Costume jewelry doesn't pretend to be what it's not but rather is a statement of you. When it's vintage you are unique. It sets one apart with confidence
