Christmas gift ideas from Modern Vintage Style

If you are looking for a unique, special Christmas gift for a jewellery or vintage lover this year, then take a look at Modern Vintage Style. The company specialises in sourcing vintage and handmade jewellery that offers something a little different from the High Street styles. With new pieces added regularly, and prices that are purse friendly, you can be sure to find a really personal gift, and be supporting small business this Christmas.

The Modern Vintage Style range includes a mixture of vintage costume and designer jewellery, as well as beautiful gemstone vintage style jewellery. The collections includes vintage earrings, necklaces, pendants, rings, brooches and pins by top designer names including amongst others, Georg Jensen, NE From, Norman Grant, Butler and Wilson, Trifari and Coro. In addition, there are vintage style pieces  that are created using a range of different precious metals and different stones and glass beads.

I was sent a couple of beautiful pieces to review from Modern Vintage Style from the vintage brooch collection, including a vintage Trifari Modernist Brooch that I totally fell in love with. I’m not sure when the brooch was produced – it has a 1940s feel, but could easily come from the 1980s.

The brooch came presented in a lovely gift box and was delivered very quickly from time of ordering (a couple of days maximum).  I was sent a second brooch, a paste 1950s design with beautiful turquoise glass stones. This was again presented in a lovely gift box making these a really nice option for Christmas.

DSCN0489[1]I think a vintage brooch is a wonderful way to accessorise a black dress or (in my case) a tuxedo style jacket. I added the Trufari brooch to a Planet jacket I was wearing for The Rat Pack Christmas show (which you can read about in my last post) and thought it looked really striking.

I would definitely recommend a little browse around Modern Vintage Style if you are stuck for Christmas inspiration, or just fancy treating yourself to something pretty and sparkly.

Art Deco style – The Ultimate Christmas Wish List…

I don’t mind admitting that I am a real Art Deco girl. In my dream world my house would have a flat roof and geometric edges,my colour scheme would be black and White and all my jewels would have previously been owned by Wallis Simpson in the 1930s. I love the Chrysler building, the Hoover building, Saltdean Lido, The Electric Palace on the Portobello Road and every single bingo hall converted from an Art Deco cinema. In short, I’m in love with Art Deco. Which is great this season, when there are 1930s influences to be found on a whole range of clothing, accessories and gift ideas. Here then, is my Christmas list.
