What Does Your Jewellery Style Say About You?

Sponsored post

What woman doesn’t love the thrill of placing a new beautiful piece of jewellery on and admiring how it makes her look and how it makes her feel? Modern jewellery takes its influences from many different periods, and historically significant events and people from the past. Vintage style jewellery is timeless, and adds a touch of elegance and sophistication, regardless of whether its worn on a wedding day, a special occasion, or even for everyday wear.

If you have ever tried to choose a piece of jewellery for someone else, you’ll know how hard it can be. Jewellery, like perfume and clothing, has to be matched to the wearer’s personal taste, because it also reflects the fine intricacies of their personality. Fortunately, figuring out which styles you are drawn to, is much easier though, isn’t it? You know almost instantly if you like or dislike a piece of jewellery. It’s either ‘you’ or its not! Whether you prefer Art Deco pieces over Victorian or you are more of a retro girl than an antique-lover, your personal jewellery taste tells others something about who you are.

Intrigued? Take a look through these gorgeous pieces from Blue Nile that take their inspiration from many different eras, and find out what your favourite go-to style says about you!

Mid-East and West Antiquity

Large, heavy gold pieces are characteristic of this period and design elements often reflect cultural beliefs. Rope designs and serpents (which symbolise protection and wisdom) were very popular.

 

What it says about you: You are a born traveller! You love adventure and embrace the opportunity to meet and connect with people from a wide variety of cultures.

Gregorian – Early 1700’s – 1830’s

Common themes and design elements of Gregorian jewellery are nature, floral and feather. In the 1750’s coloured gemstones became fashionable again, including classic stones such as emeralds, rubies and sapphires, and also new stones such as pink topaz, amethyst, coral, ivory, pearls and garnets. Dual metals (especially white gold and yellow gold) were also popular.

 

What it says about you: You are most at home in nature. A walk along the beach, or through the woods is your happy place. You are down to earth and kind. You are the friend that others come to for sound advice and a non-judgmental, listening ear.

Victorian 1837 – 1901

The rise of industrialisation, and of the middle class, meant that the Victorian period was an era of prosperity. Jewellery reflected the wearers social standing and status. Gold was scarce during this period though, so jewellers often worked thin gold sheets into light, puffy designs to give an impression of abundance with as least amount of metal as possible. Pearls, turquoise beans and pink coral were all popular in this time period. Following the death of her husband Prince Albert, Queen Victoria mourned for 2 decades and jewellery of this period reflects a more sombre tone with dark jewels such as onyx, and deep red garnets being commonly used.

Heirloom pieces like lockets were also very popular during Victorian times, and hearts, bows, birds and floral motifs also feature highly.

 

What it says about you: Nothing is more important to you than family and you wear your heart on your sleeve. You love deeply. You are a loyal and trustworthy friend and lover.

Arts and Craft Movement 1860’s – 1890’s

The arts and crafts movement was an international phenomenon that sprung up partly in reaction to the over industrialisation and mass production of the Victorian period. Jewellery of the arts and crafts movement is characterised by a move back to handmade pieces, made using traditional techniques. Hammered textures were popular, often contrasted with smooth and shiny surfaces. Precious stones were not a big feature of jewellery made at this time, with jewellers opting to rely more on their craft skills to decorate the metals they used.

 

What it says about you: You are effortlessly stylish. You like your life to be like your jewellery – simple and uncluttered. You have great attention to detail and can sniff out fake or untrustworthy people in an instant. You don’t waste energy on what others think about you. ‘What you see if what you get,’ is your motto.

 

Edwardian 1901-1910

King Edward and his wife Queen Alexandra ushered in a new era of opulence. A style icon of the time, Queen Alexandra’s tasted greatly influenced the jewellery of the Edwardian period. Her favourite colour was purple, and King Edward favoured green, so emeralds, green garnets, peridots and amethysts feature highly. Pearls and diamonds also enjoyed popularity at this time. The use of platinum was very common, and due to being much stronger than silver or gold, it was able to be worked into delicate lacey, filigree designs, which is a signature feature of Edwardian jewellery.

 

What it says about you: You are a natural trend-setter! You take pride in your appearance, and your gracious style is admired by all. You love beautiful things, beautiful people and beautiful places, and you know how to shine bright like a diamond!

 

Art Deco 1920’s – 1930’s

The roaring 20’s were a wonderfully decadent era that followed World War I. The style reflects the flamboyant and playful attitude that characterised this period. Geometric designs, circles, triangles, squares and rectangles, often woven together in intricate designs are defining features of Art Deco jewellery. Diamonds were hugely popular, often set in contrast to black onyx, or accompanied by brightly coloured gemstones such as rubies, sapphires and emeralds.

 

What it says about you: You are the life of the party! You love to have fun and have a wide and varied social group. You are deeply passionate, and aren’t afraid to stick up for what you believe in and you inspire others to do the same.

Retro (Or Art Moderne) 1935 – 1950

This period was inspired by the glitz and glamourous of Hollywood, and is best known for its colourful, elaborate and larger than life designs. Using different shades of gold in pieces was popular, and a range of gemstones were used, including citrine, amethyst and aquamarine.

 

What it says about you: You love to accessorise, and have a wonderfully stocked wardrobe of magnificent outfits that you like to mix and match with pieces from your jewellery collection. You are confident, gregarious and others are magnetically drawn to your infectious love of life, your charm and your wit.

    The thing for me is simply pulling a look together and feeling great about how I wear my jewellery. It’s about how it suits the shape of my face, and how to choose the correct look, style and colour for my overall body type.
    This is why I am inspired by Revivalism time and piece jewellery in the Classicsl and Renaissance designs.

    All these Periods suit my Style & Taste. I think with each period, while Jewellery continues to evolve in many different fashions or trends over the years, the true fundamentals of Jewellery Design & creativity has always remained somewhat the same. Jewellery is only as good as the Metals, Stones & Gems that are used. But more importantly, Jewellery is only as good as the precious time, care & love that is put in each & every piece. I don’t think you need to limit your style or taste to a specific Period. Actually I encourage anyone who truly appreciates & loves Jewellery to have a Collection from as many different periods they can in their hands on. Right now I have my Stunning Emerald Engagement ring on, my Mothers engagement ring on which is 55 years old. On my other hand I have a Ruby Ring & 2 diamond rings that sit either side of the main ring, which are 90 years old. I were them everyday & often receive compliments on how beautiful they all are. Yet regardless, of the Gems, Stones, metals, designs or age, they all just seem like they were all personally custom made for me. I have Pearl Necklace’s which I adore, a Platinum Locket from my Great, great Grandmother and many other beautiful pieces. People change fashions in their wardrobes & then decades later come back into fashion. All things totally reborn again. I feel like that with Jewellery. I do believe that the Victorian Era, the 1920’s & the 1940’s were years where Exquisite craftsmanship was at it’s finest. so to me, I am a lover of every Era of jewellery with a slight altering of the 1960’s. I adore colour but definitely not a fan of bright orange, reds, yellows etc in bulky plastic beads, baubles. My biggest dislike was when everyone I saw were wearing those chunky clip on Earrings & strings of beads, haha.

    The Edwardian Ruby and emerald rings look stunning!!! I love colour in my life. The cut of the stones and the claw setting always remind me of dragons clasping at their precious treasure. This transports me into a wonderful world of fantasy (like me actually owning one of these beautiful pieces 🙂 )

    Not sure I fit into any of the periods, bit of a mix between Gregorian, Victorian and Arts and Craft Movement with a little Mid East and West Antiquity thrown in. At the end of the day I like specific pieces not periods (same with music and clothes, I refuse to be categorized into a box!!). But I love the Morganite and Diamond Halo ring and applaud your choice for the prize.

    The woman in my family each have their own very individual tastes in jewellery. My mother is a hippy at heart and loves her crystal jewellery. Her stone of choice is the Amethyst and I associate the colour purple with her for that very reason. My sister’s choice of jewellery is anything gold. Especially expensive gold. But I have a heart for Silver. It doesn’t even have to be expensive. My two favourite Silver pieces are two bracelets my husband gave me. They each have a small silver heart on them and I like to think one is mine and one is his. xo
