  • Vintage Jewelry Intensifies Oscar Night Glamour

    new headerWe cannot get enough of the glitz and glamour of Hollywood's biggest night!

     

    The dreamy dazzle of the designer gowns and the over-the-top amazing jewelry is our favorite part of the Oscars (oh, and don’t forget the speeches).

     

    For decades, celebrities have chosen to accessorize with stunning jewelry on Oscar night. Today, the tradition often gracefully nods to the past with exceptional antique jewelry that stands leagues above 21st Century modern pieces, in both innate beauty and rarity.

    We adore the lavish vintage Bulgari bib necklace that Keira Knightly wore to the 2009 Oscars. The Art Deco zipper necklace that Margo Robbie donned for the Oscars in 2015 took 12 years to make, and was commissioned by the Duchess of Windsor. The necklace is fully functional, and when zipped up can be worn as a bracelet.

    At the 2009 Academy Awards, Taraji P. Henson wore an amazing 19th century diamond flower necklace by Fred Leighton. And, in 2000, Hilary Swank stunned with a $250,000 necklace that was originally crafted for one of Queen Victoria’s daughters in 1890 (and converts into a tiara!).

    Antique jewels are popular on the red carpet because they are one-of-a-kind. When you wear vintage jewelry, it is utterly impossible for anyone to emulate your look.

     

    We cannot wait to see which memorable vintage glam pieces will dazzle us from the red carpet this year!!

     

    Each unique piece of antique jewelry in the stunning heirloom collection at Isadoras holds a history that deepens the character and adds a sense of mystery.

    As we journey into 2017, we look to our namesake Isadora Duncan, and many other invincible women for inspiration - leaders, innovators, creators, and teachers.

    Like an Expressionist painter, art and inspiration flows through us; we convey our world vision via our own emotional perspective.

    Our self-expression - whether it be avant-garde fashion, power dressing, or statement jewelry - is the armor we adorn ourselves with, which represents our individual perspectives and aesthetic freedom.

    Jewelry is a key component of our visual identity, as both an expression of beauty and an artistic aesthetic that speaks to us on a deeply personal level.

    Your antique jewelry choices author your narrative – telling a story others will remember.

    This is the year to bring all our stories to life, as we march ahead - strong, free-spirited women with a drumbeat all our own.

    More than ever, we encourage you to express your independent self – celebrate that wild woman within!
