Finding Great Jewelry

When I started thinking more seriously about heading into the professional realm, I realized that I needed to update my jewelry. I had been wearing fun costume jewelry for years, but it wasn't resonating with the people that I worked with or my clients. It was really frustrating, so I decided to head shopping to update my collection. It was amazing to see how big of a difference a nice new necklace and some conservative earrings made. This website is all about finding great jewelry that fits within your budget and your wardrobe. Check out this blog for more information.

Far Out Or Just Plain Dope? Retro Jewelry Looks That Are Back On Trend


When shopping at pawn shops, you can find incredible vintage finds—but if the 1920s are a little too ancient jewelry history for 2018, how can you hope to find pieces at pawn shops that will still work with a modern outfit?

Wonder no more, because there are retro pieces—looks from the '60s through the end of the century—that are old enough to come back into style again but trendy enough to keep you looking chic and modern. So if you're looking for a few pieces that can bump your look from drab to fab, then here's what you need to know.


Big in the '90s (and even bigger in the '80s, metaphorically and literally), hoops are back with a vengeance—and in every style imaginable. From chunky neon hoops that evoke Madonna and leotards to the thin, gold hoops of early grunge, you're sure to be able to find a style, shape, and color of hoops that perfectly suits both you and your outfit of the day.

For a style boost, look for some incredibly retro, funky square-shaped hoops, which give a geometric flair to a look that might otherwise look a little too common or cookie-cutter. 

Pinky Rings

A staple among '70s-era mobsters and gangsters, pinky rings are coming back into style for the not-so-criminal portion of the populace—and it's a great thing. Stones that are too small or too fussy to be worn on your other fingers work great as pinky rings and will give you that retro vibe without really clashing with your outfit.

Mixing this old jewelry staple with another trendy metal such as rose gold or stainless steel (yes, these were used in old jewelry as well as modern pieces) will add a touch of the 21st century with your far-out '70s look.

Flower Decor

The summer of love, nature, and flower power happened at the tail end of the '60s, and the decade seems to be back with a vengeance as flower-decorated rings, necklaces, and earrings are all incredibly on-trend for 2018. Because the '60s were nearly 60 years ago (incredibly!), you'll see a lot of flower child jewelry show up in your local pawn shops as people shed the jewelry of their younger years for cash. For more information talk to companies like Whittier Loan & Jewelry.

The bigger you go with flowers, the better if you want to look totally in-style—so go ahead and rock whole bouquet decorations during your own summer of love.
