Our favourite vintage jewellery styling:

Layering your vintage and modern necklaces is the perfect way to opt for a chic and fashionable jewellery look. Wearing a classic gold collier with modern style chokers gives an eye-catching layering effect and a super stylish look. To create a personal and characteristic look the best styling tip is to combine different types of necklaces, such as chokers worn together with pendant necklaces.  We also encourage you to wear gold together with silver as it ads another dimension to the stacking game.

We’re into the mix and huge fans of mixing vintage and modern jewellery. A handful is just enough to create that right statement look of vintage rings and new rings. Wearing a vintage diamond ring always ads exclusivity to the selection, a hint of sparkle always adds an elegant finish. When it stands alone the look can feel to feminine or old school, yet worn with newer rings the diamond vintage ring ads sophistication and character to the styling. The combination of vintage jewellery and modern jewellery worn together creates a distinctive and super stylish look. It ads character and personality to your outfit. Don’t be afraid to wear new and old rings in a fashionable “chaos” look.

Brooches are back. Wear a brooch with a sweet funky motive such as a colourful peacock. The details of a vintage brooch cannot be compared to the modern ones you can find today. Wear them on a blazer or a shirt to give it a new look. This cool Peacock brooch in coral with gold details and pink pearls does the trick.
