Boho Chic Jewelry for Women Over 40 or 50
Boho Necklaces (continued)
Here are some (mostly inexpensive) pieces I like:
- Treasured Time Together Necklace at Modcloth
- Spring Street Design Group Necklace
- Lune Artisan Jewelry Necklace
For some reason, I remember that, back in the hippie trippy 60's, earrings were the most important piece of jewelry. Do not match your jewelry to make a set, but do try to get a nice similar feeling with the various pieces. And, sometimes, one piece of jewelry is all that is needed.
- Kendra Scott Green Drop Earrings
- Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings (Very inexpensive)
- Double Drop Earrings (art nouveau-ish)
Rings and bracelets seem to be the most difficult items to pull off when it comes to fakes or cheapies. It’s probably easier for friends to stare at fingers than at faces, but here are some reasonably-priced beauties.
- Balinese Baroque Ring
- Kosmos Rings
It’s better to wear several bracelets on one wrist than to try to even it out on two arms.
Don't be afraid to mix good silver with copper, gold vermeil, plastic, bone, or wooden bangles. If you like the look, you can really pile these on. Don't match; don't avoid matching. Just have a pile of bracelets in a bowl, shut your eyes, and grab something. Repeat.
And if you want to spend a bit more, I really like African-style beaded bracelets like this. Tribal bracelets go with bracelets of every kind, from wood to pearls.
Baby Boomers Look Hip in Boho
For older chicks like us, the foolproof way, to make bohemian style look easy, is to pair artistic jewelry with something simple, like a cobalt knit dress or a black top and black jeans. On the other hand, we Boomer Babes have been around long enough to know what looks good on us. So, go ahead and find creative ways to pile the jewelry on, mix different boho rhythms, and make the whole quilt work like no one else.
You should have an eclectic mix of jewelry. The point is to make everything look like you've pulled your jewelry together from a stash you've collected during your jet-setting travels. Things shouldn’t match, but things should “go” together in a cohesive, artsy vibe. Don’t overdo it, but don’t under do it, either.
