Retro Glam Radiates

  If you’re famous, wealthy, both or simply have a Vanderbilt or Rockefeller ancestor then chances are you’re lucky enough to own (or at least borrow) the occasional piece of vintage jewelry. Swanning down the red carpet at the uber-chic Costume Gala were some seriously wonderful platinum vintage jewels by Fred Leighton. Tilda Swinton was wearing a platinum and diamond “starburst” bracelet from the 1940’s, and a platinum with coral “star” brooch that was formerly in the collection of Diana Vreeland. While the ever-gorgeous Ellen Barkin went totally retro with clip brooches from the 1930’s, earrings from the 1920’s and a buckle bracelet from the 1920’s. If you don’t have a rich aunt, access to a jeweler’s private collection or a chubby bank account, there’ are still plenty of ways to get the retro-glam look at a sliver of the price. Try these diamond vine pieces from Mix this diamond pendant by for Macys with jeans and a tee and your ready for afternoon tea at the Astors. Don’t forget to complete the retro-glam look with this vintage style ring by for Zales at just $399.
