Hey Retro Enthusiasts!

As a devoted lover of all things vintage and retro jewelry trends spanning from the groovy 1960s to the stylish bling of the 2000s, I wanted to share what the decades brought us, and explore the iconic styles and captivating trends that have stood the test of time.

1960s: The Swinging Sixties Charm

The 1960s were a revolutionary period, and the jewelry of the time reflected the vibrant energy of the era. Think bold, psychedelic colors, geometric shapes, and the emergence of statement pieces. Chunky bracelets, mod-inspired earrings, and peace sign pendants were the go-to accessories, embodying the free-spirited vibe of the Swinging Sixties - peace, love and The Doors!

1970s: Bohemian Rhapsody

The '70s brought forth a bohemian revolution in fashion and jewelry. Earthy tones, natural materials like wood and feathers, and the rise of the disco scene influenced accessory choices. Layered necklaces, oversized hoop earrings, and gemstone-encrusted pieces became staples for those embracing the laid-back, free-flowing style of the era.

1980s: Glamour and Excess

Enter the era of excess! The 1980s were all about bold statements and unapologetic glamour. From Madonna-inspired layered chains to oversized earrings and neon-colored accessories, the '80s jewelry scene was as loud and proud as the music of the time. Power suits and power jewelry ruled the fashion landscape.


1990s: Grunge and Minimalism



As a teenager in the 90's, I remember the layered check shirts, mesh blouses and dummy necklaces very well! The '90s witnessed a shift towards a more subdued, grunge-inspired aesthetic. Chokers, mood rings, and simple, minimalist designs became the epitome of cool. From the influence of grunge bands to the rise of the supermodel, '90s jewelry was all about making a statement that was understated, and not really conforming - to anything!

2000s: Bling, Bling, and Beyond

The turn of the millennium brought forth a new wave of glamour. Hip-hop culture heavily influenced jewelry trends with oversized bling, door-knocker earrings, and flashy accessories. I remember this as a sort of 'barbie-pink -juicy couture-crystal bling everything time! The 2000s marked an era where more was definitely more!

Why Vintage and Retro Jewelry?

In a world dominated by fast fashion, the appeal of vintage and retro jewelry lies in its unique ability to tell a story. Each piece carries the essence of its era, offering a glimpse into the cultural and fashion influences that shaped it. Moreover, sporting vintage and retro jewelry allows you to stand out from the crowd with pieces that are not only timeless but also sustainable.

So, whether you're drawn to the psychedelic colors of the '60s, the bohemian allure of the '70s, or the bling-filled extravagance of the 2000s, incorporating vintage and retro jewelry into your collection is a surefire way to add a touch of history and individuality to your style - i like mixing all these styles, and enjoying every bit of it!
