Decadent Jazz Age Jewels

The release of The Great Gatsby has been highly anticipated by many since last year and it finally hit the theaters this past Friday! I haven't seen it yet, but I'm anxious to take in the glamour and grandeur of it all. I've heard that the sets, costumes, and jewelry are such an authentic replication of the period that the actors and audience alike felt truly immersed in the fabled era known as the Jazz Age.

   

Tiffany & Co. supplied the jewelry for the film, and to celebrate the glitz that was the Roaring 20s, they have released a collection of jewelry aptly named Jazz Age Glamour. The collection includes this Pearl Tassel Necklace with diamonds and pearls, and these Tiffany Legacy Collection earrings with diamonds totaling 1.7 carats.

View the full collection at Tiffany & Co. here.

Bring the glamour of the era home by making your own version–the Spring issue of Jewelry Stringing, on newsstands now, features 7 spectacular necklace and bracelet designs with a modern twist on favorite flapper fashions such as lariats, tassels, and pearls.

I'd love to hear what you think of the Roaring 20's fashion, and if you've made any of the jewelry!
