Break out your pearl strands and sweater sets. AMC’s Mad Men is back for another season of swinging 60s jewelry style.
AMC’s Mad Men is back for a 4th season this Sunday with the show’s costumes creating as much buzz as the Emmy Award-winning storyline. But Jewelry.com’s mad obsession is with the jewelry fashion gracing the screen week after week.
Guided by acclaimed costume designer, Janie Bryant, the show’s three iconic leading ladies – Grace Kelly incarnate, Betty Draper; femme fatale, Joan Holloway; and brainy career girl, Peggy Olson – all wear swinging 60s jewelry looks with period perfection.
Both Betty and Peggy wear the era’s iconic jewelry style – the Jackie O pearl strand – which Michelle Obama updated for the new millennium.
Joan’s curves are usually accented with a long pendant necklace or a vintage brooch – both styles back with a vengeance on the runways and in department stores. And look for yellow gold and rhinestones to make a glittering appearance. Bryant tells Limelife Blog that Season 4 will bring more power to Peggy’s wardrobe as she continues to thrive in the workplace; Betty Draper will sport more glitz and glam; and scene-stealing Joan will continue to wear bold color and statement jewels. Meow!
So whether you’re a vampy vixen like Joan or a good girl like Peggy (or maybe a little bit of both), Jewelry.com has Mad Men jewelry styles that leave room in your budget for a three-martini lunch and then some.
