Fringe Rhinestone Statement Necklace

This season, we will see many comebacks in jewelry trends: bold metallics, statement pieces, and a return of affordable, jeweled costume jewelry. This season, consider combining statement jewelry with a totally opposite look: pair a bold layered necklace with a modern knee-length dress, or even with a blouse (jewel-toned), black pants, and heels.

Incorporating a bold costume piece with an understated palate does not smother your look, but adds a mysterious contrast that's a modern and chic. Vogue magazine suggests "eclectic" pieces, such as faux-diamond cluster earrings, or layered beaded choker necklace, such as those seen here.

Additionally, style experts like Meredith Melling Burke have suggested that "elegant" meets "urban" jewelry is another way to use the mix and match trends this fall. For example, pair a unique fringe necklace with a classic jewel-toned cocktail dress for unexpectedly chic results.

No surprise here: we're seeing another revival of the Bohemian look—this look just won't seem to quit! Every fall there is a new twist on the look, and for 2012-2013, the fashion experts are set on animal bracelets, oversized rings, and metallic cuff bracelets.

Lastly, "modern pearls" are seeing a due revival. Both long and short faux pearl necklaces can be paired with anything from a blouse and jeans to a slinky black dress. The contrast of faux pearls with your outfit again reflects this season's trend of modern meets classic.

Whether you mix a classic outfit with modern costume jewelry, or a casual outfit with more traditional accessories, your result will be ahead of the trends this Fall.

Vendome Jewelry
Written By Molly Felth

The beautiful Vendome jewelry line is a higher caliber jewelry line produced under the umbrella of Coro, between the late mid-1940s to the late 70s. Vendome was a higher priced line, because their designs used more high-end European metals and beadwork. We have acquired a selection of Vendome adjustable shank rings circa 1968, some of which can be seen in this vintage Vendome magazine ad from 1969. (Used with permission from MorningGloryJewelry)

These adjustable rings were most popular in the 1960s, popularized by their innovative "adjustable shank" quality. These were one of the earlier costume jewels to offer that feature. Our Vendome rings feature their original Vendome tags, with their genuine instructions on how to best use the adjustable feature.

These rings are ahead of their time with their art deco flair and styling reminiscent of contemporary Hollywood style. Vendome was good with capturing the latest style trends back in the 1960s, and emulating them for the average woman. These pieces now are lovely vintage, wearable relics of this time.

Vendome rings and jewelry pieces can be seen as genuinely fine pieces of vintage jewelry, especially knowing that they were produced as an offshoot of the Coro line. Coro is one of the best known houses of costume jewelry from the United States from the 1950s-80s, and there's no question of their quality or cache. The name Vendome is one to cherish, whether worn on you're your finger, or safe in your jewelry box.

1980s Ribbed Link Necklace Set

While watching the Soap Opera network recently (what? I was sick in bed!), I noticed something odd. At the start of a marathon of the 1980's soap drama Dynasty, I was prepared to laugh at the outdated clothing and accessories of the privileged female characters. But, once it started, I was surprised to realize... they didn't look outdated.

Instead of old-fashioned, the shoulder pads and jewelry (indeed made famous by 80s prime time soaps) looked strangely chic! They essence of the outfits (shoulder pads, boxy silhouettes, and bold link necklaces and earrings) can be seen on the runways today. This floored me.

The 1980s look just won't quit in the world of style, especially the heavy use of chunky accessories within an ensemble. Peering deeper behind the trends of modern chunky metallic link necklaces and huge matching earrings, we can't help but remember the looks of the women of 80's television. The female characters on Dynasty (and, similarly, on Dallas) are a clear inspiration for this look, as they were rarely seen without their trademark bling. Nowadays, this jewelry look translates as a winning combination of retro and fresh, especially when paired with a modern outfit, like a maxi dress or a pair of form fitting jeans.

As proof, take a look at the runways; Fashion Weeks in all the major style capitals are swarming with 80s-style structural garments and bold jewelry. (Seen here, London Fashion Week.) Designers are clearly cycling back to the 1980s for inspiration. Bold jewelry is a cornerstone of this Dynasty-era feminine empowerment uniform.

The link necklaces we acquired are sample pieces from the 1980s. These link necklaces are the real deal-- vintage, never been worn sample pieces from the 1980s, these genuine products of their time add a look of authenticity to your fashion statement. The use of genuine vintage 80s link necklaces with a variety of modern looks is a savvy statement. This look is easy to have fun with, and is most definitely fashion forward.
