What Kind of Girl Are You: Modern

Posted on
Modern Era Post-war 1950's was a time of great economic growth that lead to a rise in the upper middle class. Jewelry from the 1950's reflected this new prosperity by featuring an abundance of gemstones set in flashy, dramatic designs, with a focus once again on diamonds, diamonds, and more diamonds. In 1948, DeBeers unvelied their still famous ad slogan "Diamonds Are Forever", prompting an increased demand for using diamonds in all types of jewelry.   Your Inspiration: Marilyn Monroe as Lorelei Lee in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes   How to Know if your type is Modern: 1. Diamond are a girl’s best friend. Need I say more? 2. You love old girly movies.  Anything starring Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, or Grace Kelly - you’re going to love it. 3. You have stilettos permanently attached to your feet. Modern designs are not for the wallflower in flats in the corner of the party - bold jewelry requires a bold woman, and bold women wear stilettos. Period. 4. You love to dress up and go out for a big night on the town. Funny how champagne and diamonds go so well together. Stunning 1950’s jewelry requires plenty of people to see and appreciate your jewels - your ring wouldn’t be happy at home alone on a Friday night, and neither would you. 5. Your favorite color is shiny. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
