Jewelry - 50's
You cannot find yourself ready to go out to the jukebox dance halls and malt shops without first dressing up a little bit for your date. The 50's Jewelry is comprised of several pieces that will fit in the with the decade of an organized youth culture. These pieces are reminiscent of the golden age of Hollywood. The costume jewelry is designed to look lavish and very elegant.
Bracelets and necklaces were mighty popular during this time, and the bigger the piece the better. Necklaces feature several glistening rhinestones that are meant to mimic the sheer number of diamonds starlets wore around their necks. By today's standards, one would have to be a queen to afford such lavish pieces. Bracelets are designed with similar expectations in mind and always live up to the idea that more is more. More modest pieces include charm bracelets and pearl necklaces made popular by the young girls during the '50s. These items were typically worn by teenage girls who enjoyed a night out with friends. The jewelry enhanced their charm and made them the subjects of boys who wanted to date them. This decade was the period that brought the beginning of popular acceptance of young people expressing themselves.
