It’s official antique, vintage, retro, pre-owned jewellery is in vogue right now in a big way. In a market of mass produced products, more and more women are seeking unique jewellery and one off pieces which reflect their style and at an affordable price point. Pre-owned jewellery offers both of these things.
Antique jewellery solves the problem of finding something totally unique and at an affordable price point. There is a particularly strong trend for mixing old with new as this is a great way to create a stylish look with a contemporary feel with the added detail, craftmanship and glamour of vintage or antique.
There is currently a notable trend for vintage mid century pieces (much like current trends in interior design) but also Victorian and Edwardian pieces have risen in popularity too. Many Edwardian and Victorian pieces are being personalised to work with modern day fashion, for example Victorian fobs are transformed into pendants and necklaces.
Brooches are back in fashion! No longer reserved for just our grandmas and The Queen, brooches are resurging as a fashion accessory must and we think they look fabulous! Brooches were originally worn by Victorian and Edwardian women, however during the second world war the fashion subsided. Today brooches are back in favour as a statement item of jewellery which can be worn in a number of ways and reflect an abundance of different fashion movements and styles. It is not just women who are relishing in the brooch comeback, men too are using brooches to accessorise. Pharell Williams wore a Chanel brooch at the 2017 Academy Awards.
Remember purchasing pre-owned jewellery is also a great way to be an ethical consumer. Not only are you supporting smaller local business, but you are helping the environment by recycling these beautiful pieces of jewellery.
