This week I was sent two beautiful necklaces from Modern Vintage Style to review. Modern Vintage Style sell a lovely selection of original vintage and new handmade jewellery. The original pieces are mostly named pieces like Butler and Wilson, Trifari some particularly beautiful Norman Grant jewellery. There are some really wonderful pieces for collectors and vintage enthusiasts alike. If your budget won’t stretch to something original the handmade pieces are absolutely beautiful and look wonderful with a vintage wardrobe.
I chose my two necklaces to go with particular items of clothing I own. Recently I seem to have acquired a lot of blue clothing, but had no jewellery that really matched anything. So I had to choose something blue. I went for this beautiful aquamarine pendant on a gold coloured chain. I loved how simple it was, but with the large stone also very eye-catching. It goes so well with everything.
I absolutely loved the way this one was mounted so that you could see through the stone and it really catches the light. The chain was the perfect length for wearing with most of my dresses as it sits quite high. The chain is also quite thin and subtle so it doesn’t draw any attention away from the beautiful pendant. I absolutely love it, and know I’ll wear it all the time. This one would make a particularly good gift as it’s so simple and would go with most people’s personal style. At £25 this is also perfect for a christmas present idea.
The other necklace I chose was a glass flower and Swarovski crystal necklace. This pretty feminine design features small flowers details going all the way round and has tones of yellow, green blue and pink. I liked the mix of colours on this one knowing again that it would be really versatile and match a lot of my clothes. With the use of glass flowers this one feels like a real vintage piece which I absolutely love.
The details on this one are absolutely beautiful, the chain has a little notched design on each loop and the flowers have little leaves which match the chain, it just a really pretty well made design. the chain itself is in an antique gold colour which compliments the delicate glass flowers perfectly. Again this one is really affordable at £26.
Both necklaces came beautifully wrapped in gift boxes.
The website offers quite a wide range of style and colours, so there’s definitely something there for all tastes. I feel really strongly about encouraging small independent businesses, so I’d always recommend choosing them over larger companies when choosing Christmas gifts.
