  • The 1970s:
    After the restrictive nature of the 50s and the free spirit vibe of the 60s, the 70s were all about being big and bold. Brightly coloured prints were splashed about in the fashion industry, while interior design was leaning heavily on Autumnal colour schemes. The Jewellery during this period featured large stone rings set in yellow gold and thick gold chains worn in layers. Animal bracelets by Jeweller David Webb were very popular as were beaded necklaces made in turquoise and lapis lazuli. The 70s refused to conform and looked to fashion and jewellery as a way to express ones self.
