Accessorising with vintage jewellery

Every so often I post for The Collective Review, a contributor network of 250 writers including journalists, bloggers and industry insiders. My most recent contribution was a post on where to buy vintage jewellery in London and online. Check it out here.

Iconic actress Elizabeth Taylor boasts one of the finest collections of vintage stones in the world. In 2002 she published a book called My Love Affair with Jewellery; her range of fragrances include Black Pearls, Diamonds and Rubies, Brilliant White Diamonds, Diamonds and Sapphires... and so on.

In my post I mention where to buy vintage jewellery in London and online, but if you want to check out the rocks before purchase and don't want to travel to do so, then the jewellery counter at John Lewis stores in Kingston, Bluewater, Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Cardiff now stock Eclectica Vintage, run by Liz Wilson. The glamorous costume jewellery is accessibly priced and personally sourced by Liz, and her selections are absolutely fabulous. John Lewis in Oxford Street, London, hosts the largest collection which changes weekly.

My online boutique Juno Says Hello is giving away a copy of Caroline Cox’s lavishly illustrated book Vintage Jewellery (see cover photo above), which features designs by Cartier, Christian Dior, Fabergé, Tiffany, René Lalique, Boucheron and others through the 20th century. Just enter your details via this link. The winner will be drawn at random on February 1st. Good luck!
