Mistakes To Avoid When Wearing Antique Jewellery

We all love the look and feel of fine antique jewellery, with fashion accessories of style and character that really do complement your look, yet choosing the right pieces can be a challenge. While some women are super-confident when choosing accessories, others are unsure, and here are a few common mistakes women make when selecting antique jewellery to complement their outfit.

Overdoing your accessories – It can be difficult knowing where to draw the line when accessorising, and if you like to wear earrings, make sure that they are suitable for the occasion. Many women prefer the minimalist look, with perhaps a necklace and a couple of rings, and if you are unsure, send a selfie to a good friend and ask for her honest opinion.

Mixing metals – White gold does look great with diamonds, and with rings and bracelets, one must be careful not to wear yellow gold with platinum, which doesn’t really work. If you are looking to add a particular piece from Sydney’s finest antique jewellery collection, search online for an established antique dealer, one that focuses on antique and vintage jewellery, and you can browse their catalogue in the comfort of your own home.

Wearing jewellery that does not match your outfit – It might be the wrong colour or style that somehow just doesn’t blend with what you are wearing, especially when combining antique pieces with contemporary wear. Attending a formal event demands a balance and too many accessories can certainly detract from the look you are trying to create.

Wearing a necklace that is too short or long – That antique pendant necklace might be too long for the gown you’ve chosen, or if it’s a little short, the pendant will not look in proportion with your gown.

Choosing the wrong metal for your skin tone – Generally speaking, light coloured metals such as platinum, silver and white gold are suitable for people with cool skin tones, while yellow and rose gold blend well with warmer skin tones. When you are getting ready to go out, try jewellery items to see which contrast well with your skin tone, and if unsure, ask a good friend for her honest opinion.

Wearing dirty jewellery – Any jewellery item can become dirty, and on close inspection, it might be evident, so always clean jewellery prior to wearing it. You can use a soft toothbrush and warm water with a little mild detergent, and with gentle brushing, you can clean the delicate items, then dry with a soft, dry cloth.

If you would like to see a collection of beautiful jewellery, you can view the stunning pieces from the comfort of your own living room. All you have to do is search online for a respected jeweller or even an antiques dealer, which would have one-of-a-kind pieces. Antique dealers are usually part of a nationwide network, so if you’re looking for something specific, there would be a good chance that the dealer can source what you are looking for.
