Vintage Jewelry to Accent the Prom Dress

Create a Spectacular Outfit by Wearing Antique jewelry necklaces, Bracelets, Brooches, or BeadsJennifer T. Moore Fuller, Yahoo Contributor Network

Online Jewelry Auction Are you looking for some fashion accessories to turn your prom dress into a sweetly feminine or fun and flashy outfit? Vintage jewelry can create the one-of-a-kind look you are after. Here are ideas and tips for selecting and wearing beautiful vintage jewelry.

Kinds and Styles of Vintage jewelry

There is a wide array of antique jewelry types and styles from which to choose. Pieces range from the colorful, mod looking 1960s and 70s "retro", to exquisite turn-of-the-century Victorian items. There are unique vintage necklaces, bracelets, earrings, brooches, dress clips, and rings available to buy.

You can select jewelry pieces from a particular era if your prom dress is fashioned after styles of a particular period. For instance, a vintage poodle pin of the 50s would look fantastic accenting a full-skirted dress reminiscent of the times. Or a long string of collectible beads to accent a low-waist, "flapper" looking dress.

An easy way to create the look you want is to choose a piece of vintage jewelry that you love as your focal point. Then add other pieces of any style or age that work well with it. It is beneficial to actually try the jewelry on with your dress while shopping. Or at least hold pieces up against your prom dress to evaluate.

Consider color carefully when choosing your jewelry. You can wear pieces that match your prom dress's color, or that contrast and go well with it. For instance, an antique black glass bead and sterling choker would look impressive with a simple form-fitting black gown. But a vintage ruby colored rhinestone necklace worn with the same dress would probably be an attention-getting sensation! Here are jewelry possibilities for accenting prom dresses:

Antique Brooches

Select a vintage pin you like, to wear on the shoulder or waistline of your dress. You can also create an impressive choker necklace by pinning the brooch to an elasticized or tie-in-back velvet or satin ribbon.

Seasonal Pins

Choose vintage pins to go with any holiday theme dance. Collectible pins of New Year's, Valentines, Easter, Christmas, and other occasions are available.

Charm Bracelets

Older charm bracelets are unique and appealing. You could also select a large antique charm to wear as the focal point of a pendant. Or string vintage charms with small beads to create a necklace.

Bangles

Vintage Bakelite bangles from the 1930s and 40s are brightly colored early plastic bracelets. A mixture of bangles worn together or with other bracelets is a great look.

Antique necklaces

Choose an impressive vintage necklace in a length becoming to your prom dress for a fashion focal point. Or combine it with other chains and beads. Sometimes a unique choker necklace layered with complimentary larger pieces can look sensational.

Buying Vintage Jewelry

Shop for the antique or collectible jewelry at local secondhand stores, antique stores, and specialty vintage jewelry shops. Estate liquidator / auction stores also carry vintage jewelry.

There is also a huge selection of antique jewelry for sale online at auction sites such as eBay, and antique and collectible Internet stores. Make sure to check jewelry lengths, sizes etc. carefully when buying online to assure that pieces will work well with your dress.

By choosing to wear vintage jewelry with your prom dress, you can create a special, fantastic fashion look. An in addition, enjoy the advantage of owning unique antique necklaces, brooches, bracelets, or beads - to wear again and again.
