Great Gatsby Style: Belargo Jewelry by Freida Rothman
One of my favorite fashion periods was the roaring twenties.The era of the flapper dazzles with lots of beads, pearls, cuffs with cut out designs, feathered headbands and tassel pendants. We’re getting another chance to enjoy 1920’s fashions and jewelry with the release of the new The Great Gatsby film. If you love the 20’s styles like I do, you’ll want to take a look at Belargo jewelry by Freida Rothman. Look for Freida Rothman jewelry at Nordstrom and Amazon.Belargo Jewelry offers pieces like the compass earrings, tassel pendants, kaleidoscope cutout ring, and the tiara bracelet that look like reproductions from Daisy Buchanan’s jewelry box. Most pieces are priced at under $175.00 and can be found for less on Amazon.com and sometimes eBay.
I’ve been enjoying the large wildflower earrings that Belargo sent me for evaluation and review. They have incredible detail on them, especially for costume jewelry. The hops that the earrings dangle from have delicate little cubic zirconia chips in them for extra sparkle. The 20’s color palette featured in The Great Gatsby is full of cream, lavender, light pink and white, so Belargo’s 14K gold, blush and platinum finished jewelry compliments those colors. The wild flower earrings (above) are set in 14k gold with hand cut cubic zirconia enhancing the hoops and gem settings. If you’re a fan of the ’20s tassel style, check out the Waterfall Drop Earrings with the pearl tassels or the more expensive ($500. US) Gala Tassel Necklace.
If you’re not familiar with Belargo Jewelry visit their website, or look for them at Bloomingdale’s trunk shows and events. What do you think of the 1920’s styles readers? Are you loving the resurgence of these vintage styles or do you favor contemporary looks?
