A/W 2010 - Vintage Inspired

We've always been slightly obsessed with vintage jewellery and accessories but as this A/W season covets the ladylike, we've gone vintage crazy! Our Vintage Inspired collection consists of beautiful jewellery either originating or based-on designs from yesteryear.

It was love at first sight with this absolutely stunning Multi-Colour Enamel Butterfly Necklace. Its heavy antique gold setting adds to the vintage charm and the vibrancy of the colours really catches the eye. A resplendent statement piece. Priced at £12 it proves the perfect vintage pick-me-up!

These Vintage Spiral Earrings are loaded with 1950s/1960s appeal. A gorgeous addition to your earring collection, they're elegant yet scream out to be noticed. The coffee and cream colouring adds a rich vintage twist. These are priced at £6.

If love was in necklace-form, then this would be it. This wonderful Victoriana Necklace is the perfect accessory for ladylike days. With an antique gold setting decorated with pearls, bows, crystals, flowers and hearts, the detailing is wonderfully vintage! A vintage dream and priced at £10, it's also within budget!

The Antique Telephone Necklace is an all-time fave at Chelsea Doll, we just can't take our eyes off it! Screaming attention-seeker, its retro credentials are impeccable. The telephone itself is coloured bright purple, red and blue and the dial and handpiece are adorned with crystals. This necklace really takes the wearer back to the early 20th century. Priced at £18, it's the best way to make a statement!

Visit the Chelsea Doll Vintage Inspired collection to find your charming remake from bygone days and revive sought-after looks of previous decades. The only way to add a vintage twist to an otherwise modern-day look!

It's All About the Chintz!

What does Chintz say to you? Wallpaper? China? Something that wouldn't look out of place in your Gran's house? Well now, for us, it screams uber cool jewellery! Just landed at Chelsea Doll, are these wonderful Chintz patterned bird necklaces.

Priced at £8, there's a choice of the Blue Chintz Bird Necklace or the Pink Chintz Bird Necklace. Both equally as pretty as the other, in fact we'd be tempted to buy the both! So pretty yet so unusual. We've actually had a bit of a Chintz floral-fest over the last couple of days and found this lovely Eden Print Maxi Dress from Topshop. You can never have too many Winter florals!
So that's our take on Chintz and if you want to co-ordinate your fabric, tea service and jewellery, then you know where to go! Wonder if our necklaces will be a collector's piece in years to come? Hmmm....

A/W 2010 - The Roaring Twenties

This is the collection we've been eagerly anticipating at Chelsea Doll. A collection that pays homage to the decade of style, the 1920s. Yes, The Roaring Twenties is a celebration of flappers, jazz and feathers!

The 1920s symbolises the decade that fashion entered the modern era. Recognising this, the jewellery in our collection focuses on elegance and style, including feathers of all varieties, hair pieces, long layer chains and pearls. We adore this Multi-Chain & Stone Drop Necklace, a true 1920's statement piece. Teamed with a minimalist top and low-key earrings, this necklace will do all the talking! Priced at £12, it's the perfect way to update your wardrobe.

The Fifi Feather Hairband personifies the 1920s completely. A beautiful combination of purple and blue feathers, furs and beads, it adds a touch of flair and vibrancy to A/W styles. We've worn ours with a jumpsuit to jazz up the clean, asymmetric look. The amazing part is that it's priced at just £9, an absolute steal!

These Pearl Ball Earrings are gorgeous. Purely understated, small pearls with a gold stud; they're the perfect tonic to the fussier, eccentric 1920 pieces. Priced at £5, they're an affordable way to shop the trend!

Our favourite piece from The Roaring Twenties collection, though, is this stunning Antique Silver, Crystal & Pearl Bracelet. Such a striking and graceful piece, the silver setting and pearls add the coveted, glamorous 1920s feel. It's definitely an investment piece and one to be worn again and again and priced at only £10 it won't harm your budget!

The Roaring Twenties collection is the perfect way to embrace the most unique and elegant decade of the twentieth century. The decade fashion remembered. Re-live the 1920s in all its finery!
