Wearing ’40s Jewelry Today

Retro jewelry specialist Camilla Dietz Bergeron offers the following guidelines for making '40s jewelry work with fashions of the '90s: Wear Retro necklaces with a white T-shirt, nice jacket, and no other jewelry. Wear double clips separately-at odd angles, on the neckline, at the waist. Avoid replacing clips with posts; most earrings from this era are too heavy to be worn with posts. Always check the size of Retro necklaces, which often are too small for the throats of today's larger women. Avoid wearing suites of jewelry all at once-a dated look. When in doubt, go for the more tailored piece.
