Sterling Canyon wants to let everyone know that the AMC series “Mad Men” begins this Sunday. This is news if you just crawled out from under a rock. The series which features advertising executives and their families in the early to mid 1960’s features period decor and costumes. These costumes feature of course jewelry. Costume designer Janie Bryant gets her inspiration from old magazines like “Look”, and “Good Housekeeping” from that time period.
As you may guess, the clothing has changed over the years but the jewelry really has not. Clothing styles are the thing that hardly ever works in cycles. The long skirts-below the knee are long gone and won’t return to any widespread use. Jewelry however, has short cycles of 15 to 20 years. The long necklaces popular in the 60’s have come back several times since then and are popular today. Short necklaces of 14 to 16 inches are also popular today as they were in the 60’s.
Pearls and gemstones are and have always been popular. Sterling and Gold are forever popular. That’s why Sterling Canyon continues in the long tradition of fine jewelry that will never be out of style.
