Vintage has become a big news story in fashion in recent years, and Rock My Vintage is one of its greatest exponents/ Based in Birmingham’s Custard Factory, the brand stocks a range of items under the vintage umbrella, from true pieces from the past, to faithful reproductions, vintage inspired pieces, and beautiful accessories and jewellery that have that feel of being found in granny’s jewellery box.
For me, when it comes to jewellery, I love the style, shape and colours that are linked to the Art Deco era, which had its heyday in the 1920s. Art Deco was exciting, flamboyant, geometric and super stylish, but due to a resurgence that began in the 1960s and never really ended, true Art Deco pieces are becoming harder to source, not to mention, very, very expensive.
The Green Art Deco necklace and matching drop earrings from Lovett and Co are just one of the jazz age styled items stocked at Rock My Vintage. (You can view their full range here). The necklace is a beautifully delicate piece with diamante stones that reflect so prettily, framing green opal stones that catch the light perfectly. The chain is antique plated brass that is 40cm in length, but can be extended a further 6cm through the adjuster.
These are really versatile pieces of jewellery, that can be worn as a matching set, or styled separately. They can be worn with really dressy outfits, or just to add a touch of retro style or bling to a simple daytime outfit. I love the fact that the pieces are really well made, but are also light and delicate – this made them perfect to pack in a suitcase to take to my brother’s recent wedding in Cyprus. I wore the earrings with my wedding outfit, and. as you can see, they were a perfect match, with the drop being so elegant.
I’ve worn the necklace on a different night out, and, it sits so nicely just below the nape of the neck. The opals look great with a wide range of colours.
Rock My Vintage is definitely worth checking out if you like jewellery of the vintage kind, it has so many lovely pieces that you will be able to wear for years and years.
