Fine Jewelry with Costume Jewelry



I am finishing my reading in Kate Spade's book called Style. The next section that I wanted to share was fine jewelry and costume jewelry. Should they be worn together?


Kate mentioned:

Real pearls are costly, yet you adore them. Is it all right to mix fine jewelry with costume?

Wearing jewelry with style is about considering shape, color, and proportion. If your grandmother's pearl necklace is perfection with your costume Dior pearl brooch, then wear them together often.

Make them a signature look all your own. 



I love wearing my salt water pearl necklace with my faux pearl Chanel necklace. They look so chic together.









I have also worn my black Eva Mendes statement necklace with my pearl necklace from my mother in law. Lovely together....









And I have worn my Talbots statement necklace with my pearl necklace from my mother in law. Again, very chic together. 



I hope you take your fine vintage jewelry and mix it up with your costume jewelry. The look together just might surprise you.

  1. Dear Mrs. Shockley,
    I agree. I mix my pearls with gold and silver necklaces of the same length and get the best of both worlds. This look is classy, yet keeps pearls looking young.

    The pearls from your mother-in-law are lovely. She must be a wonderful woman.

    Warmly, Kathleen
