Step into the world of bright lights, groovy music and hot, hot nights with the fabulous and funky vintage jewelry styles of the 1970’s! Longer hemlines, asymmetric necklines, flared pants and enough glitter to set the disco-floor twinkling were the hallmarks of this ultra-groovy decade. The disco aesthetic – fueled in part by drug use, the desire for expression of personal freedoms made possible by the social movements of the 1960’s and a rejection of hippie naturalism – was a dream-like expanse of high-glamour girls in synthetic fabrics shaking their groove things on the gleaming dance-floors of discotheque clubs around the world. Of course, the dramatic fashions so favored by dancing queens were best complemented by jaw-dropping jewels designed to add a whole lot of flash to these foxy mamas!
Here’s some disco chic styles that have us saying more, more, more!
