|Vintage Crystal, Swarovski and Stirling Silver Necklace* RRP £28.00, Modern Vintage Style|
I love Christmas shopping online, why? Because you end up coming across loads of little stores when looking for the perfect gift. That’s not how I came across Modern Vintage Style, but it could have been! I’m a bit fan of the unique and one of a kind, especially when it comes to vintage. I really dislike how mainstream it is these days and easy to buy a piece in a vintage style from Topshop. In my late teens I spent a lot of time going through charity shops looking for accessories to set me apart from the crowd, back then I did deal with a fair bit of bullying, but it didn’t stop me.
Anyway, Modern Vintage Style is an online store specialising in well.. vintage jewellery as well as handmade more modern pieces. If you’re a vintage buff you will recognise some of the names such as Butler and Wilson, Trifari and Monet. Yes these pieces are the kind your grandmother would have owned but they are in immaculate condition and would make a wonderful gift for any collector. The vintage pieces are priced aptly but if you’re looking for something more reasonably priced but equally as beautiful then you have to have a look at the gemstone jewellery, especially this beautiful Blue Topaz Quartz Pendant Necklace. Although the quartz makes it appear statement the very delicate filigree necklace would mean it could be worn every day. Another of my favourites is the Rainbow Glass and Gold Vermeil Pendant. I really love rainbow glass as it catches the light in such a beautiful way, the beads in this particular necklace are vintage from West Germany.
My necklace which is pictured above really is beautiful. I have been after something more delicate than my usual quirky pendants and this really fits the bill. The Aurora Borealis crystal beads catch the light and create rainbows. The necklace as a whole lies on my collar bones so it goes perfectly with all necklines.
Over all if you’re looking for something special, or you want your other half to buy you something special I cannot recommend Modern Vintage Style enough. The service was wonderful and the necklace arrived quickly as well as being beautifully wrapped. The perfect Christmas service.
Which do you prefer, modern or vintage jewellery?
