Boho Chic Style Jewelry

27 Jun

Now that we have some summer fashion basics mastered let’s talk about jewelry. Since the Boho-ista style is a fusion of vintage mixed with modern there are a many styles of jewelry available to pull together a Bohemian chic look. The styles of jewelry  are  Ethnic, Romantic, and Vintage. Each one of these jewelry styles are different from each other but can worn with your regular wardrobe and become  a wonderful
part of your jewelry collection.

Let’s start with Ethnic style jewelry for the Bohemian look.
This jewelry has an international vibe with influences from Africa, Indian, American Southwest, and Asia. Ethnic jewelry tends to be very colorful and doesn’t restrict itself by conservative boundaries. Ethnic jewelry also uses natural stones and many times fine metals like silver and gold as well. Items such as chunky rings, wrist cuffs, large earrings, and large necklaces in Ethnic styles wake up the average outfit and give it instant  flavor and flair!

A fabulous choice for a beautiful chunky ring to accessorize
your fingers is the Romantic Rutilated Quartz Ring by M Arleene Hallman is made of sterling silver, quartz, and onyx this is southwest at its best.

Now for a great cuff for your wrist  the Bohemian Chic Rhinestone Friendship Cuff by Sayagdis features shiny coral, pacific opal, and turquoise for a beautiful statement to your outfit.

Now let’s talk about Romantic style jewelry. This jewelry is
inspired by the Renaissance period and Romantic periods which were known for ornate necklaces, earrings, rings, and brooches. Romantic pieces feature details like floral elements, cameos, crystal accents, pearls, and sparkly beads to add instant feminine romance to anything you wear.

A great choice for summer is the Statement Necklace by Blu Kat Design features repurposed jewelry for a stunning floral neckpiece for any
wardrobe.

Another great choice is Audrey on the Town by sew chic boutique
features a handmade flower and sparkly Lucite beads for a romantic addition to your outfit.

Finally we have Vintage Jewelry. Vintage jewelry is defined
as a piece of jewelry dating over 20 years. This would mean finding jewelry dating from 1991 and older would to be considered true vintage. For the Boho-ista I would go back into the 1970’s and older for a look that stays true to the its original roots from the era of 60’s and 70’s fashion. Remember vintage jewelry can break all the rules and be romantic, bohemian, hippy, disco, urban, or anything in between the key is uniqueness.

A stunning geometric earring and necklace piece is the Artist Series Eisenberg Enamel Pendant Necklace & Earrings available at Embracing Yesterday is bold and chunky adding 1970’s substance to any look.

A wonderful chunky pair of earring 1980’s available at Riff Raff Gentry are embossed silver circles linked together for a long pair of earrings.

My friend Tammy a fabulous Boho-ista.

Whether you’re a full-fledged Boho-ista like my great friend
Tammy here or you just want to add a bit of Boho style to your everyday look the Ethnic, Romantic, or Vintage style jewelry is guaranteed to give you the Boho flavor your looking for!
