About Vintage Wedding Jewellery
Breathing new life into jewellery of a bygone era
Vintage wedding jewellery has become increasingly popular in
recent years with many brides planning their entire wedding around a vintage
theme. Wearing vintage wedding jewellery
brings an old piece a new lease of life and some brides feel more unique wearing
jewellery that has a sense of history and the timeless elegance of a past
era. Lots of vintage wedding jewellery
is in fantastic condition, almost as new but some pieces have a lovely patina
that just adds to its character and charm.
Some brides choose to wear vintage wedding jewellery that is handed down
from a relative, like a grandmother, which can add a special significance to
Vintage wedding jewellery can be revived and brought up to
date by making it into a hair accessory or incorporated into a new piece of
jewellery such as a necklace - many jewellery designers can create a beautiful bespoke
piece for a bride this way. Vintage
wedding jewellery is reminiscent of glamorous actresses from the 1950’s and
1960’s such as Marilyn Monroe and Sofia Lauren - women with a classic and timeless
beauty and elegance that will never date.
Some vintage wedding jewellery is
‘signed’ meaning that it was designed by a well-known name such as Trifari or
Eisenberg. This type of signed jewellery
is usually more collectible and people are willing to pay more for it.
Vintage wedding jewellery ranges from necklaces, earrings,
bracelets, brooches and other items such as dress clips and hat pins. Anyone that decides to wear vintage wedding
jewellery on their wedding day will have a beautiful heirloom piece of
jewellery to pass down to future generations and can be sure to receive many compliments
on their wedding day.
