VINTAGE JEWELRYBecause classic rhinestone brooches were so popular in the 1960’s, you can often find them at vintage stores (but snatch them up quick because of their recent rise in popularity). The modern versions are usually a combination of colored pearls, cut gems and rhinestones.
Ribbons: Though not so popular in the 1960’s, ribbons are being used with pearls, rhinestones and cut gems to gather multi-strand necklaces, serve in place of a necklace clasp and accent earrings and brooches.
Since earrings reside in the prime real estate surrounding your face, they can really influence your overall look. The trendy bridal earrings for 2011 exude vintage elegance in an array of pearls, crystals and jewels. Elaborate stud earrings are in fashion and complement a variety of wedding gown styles. Tiered dangling earrings in jewel-tones are also popular and look great with simple gowns with high necklines and up-do hairstyles. Bracelets are one of those finicky accessories that fade in and out of fashion but don’t worry, this year they are definitely in. 2011 bridal bracelets are all about multiple strands. Designs with twisted strands of crystals and pearls are popular accented by touches of rich jewel-tones.
