As you’ll probably find, the vintage bridal accessory scene is a crowded place. There are so many different interpretations of ‘vintage’ jewellery around. Here at JewelStreet, we define vintage jewellery as pieces that harp back our jewellery past. They’re often made with periodic styles in mind, and so bring forward a sense of timeless beauty.
Vintage is essentially jewellery with an antique appearance, a certain nostalgic value, and a prestigious air of elegance and luxury. Just like these mesmerising Petite Vintage Earrings by Joana Salazar.
These Petite Vintage Earrings were inspired by a piece of jewellery that the designer Joana Salazar had as a child. The peaceful and profound nature of these earrings is striking. They are comprised of 18kt rose gold, pink coral, blue sapphires and diamonds. They’re are noticeably distinct, but still retain an element of subtlety and grace.
Wedding Tip: When having your professional photographs taken, ensure that you position yourself so that your jewellery and dress detailing is always facing the lens. In this case, consider pinning your hair back and tilting your head to reveal a little glimpse of these gorgeous gems.
As a bride-to-be, it is hard to cruise through your wedding journey without the phrase ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ being repeated to you! Here at JewelStreet we are confident that ‘something old’ does not have to be covered in dust and cobwebs.
Instead, consider carrying a locket. These lovely vintage Lily Blanche lockets can each carry a photograph inside. Do you want a loved one close to your heart on your big day? Perhaps in memory of someone who has passed.
This is a pendant with a presence, and will be sure to turn heads. It’s not only sentimental and meaningful, but it is eye-catching too.
Styling Tip: The vintage long line design of this piece would suit a dress with a deep v-neck. Alternatively, it would compliment a high neck vintage dress too.
Vintage weddings are the perfect opportunity to purchase luxury jewellery, not only for one day, but to wear for a number of different occasions.
