Beladora Vintage Jewelry - How To Wear It

I realize that many fashion forward women think that antique estate jewelry is too old fashioned and frumpy for our contemporary lifestyle. I beg to differ. Not only is it easy to wear estate jewelry with current clothing styles, it adds visual interest to mix up the old with the new, especially if you mix up jewelry from different decorative periods. Today I'm wearing Georgian, Edwardian, Art Deco and Contemporary diamond jewelry...and it works.
Antique Georgian Diamond Brooch and Antique Edwardian Diamond Earrings
Here's the detail on the brooch

Vintage Harry Winston Diamond and Sapphire Watch and Art Deco Diamond Ring
also added to the mix is an Art Deco Diamond Bracelet

OK, it won't always be the big diamond stuff...I have a couple of appointments today that call for it, but I will wear something vintage every day....whether big bold Retro brooches and bracelets, funky 1970's rings or a Van Cleef and Arpels Alhambra pendant that is less than 5 years old.
Whatever your style, vintage jewelry will work for you too.

WOW!!! You look fabulous, and the jewelry isn't bad either. ;-)

Seriously though, I think those vintage brooches *always* look amazing, and especially when worn with simple, modern garments.

You really are good at this Miss Blanche, very, very good. It works beautifully. (Love the glasses too.)

Grins & giggles,

Your jewellery and watch are stunning! xx If you want a contact for the Victoire de Castellane jewellery I can get you one. I can also find out if we get any discount at the magazine.

How nice to meet you!! You have chosen a fine selection of antique jewelry. Princesse and Queen jewelry worn in a modern way. I like them on you!

Love the jewelry...but I'm coveting your glasses. I have an old pair of Persol that I bought 15 years ago. I'm so tired of them...but I'm too afraid to visit the eye doc and find out how much more blind I really am!
