Grandmother's Box
Is Full Of Modern
Jewelry Fashions
The smart thing to do this season
is to go old-fashioned, so, young co-
eds, get out you.r grandmother's jewel
boxes and start rummaging! The
first thing to look for is a three, four,
or even five-strand pearl necklace to
go with the stunning black decollete.
Dog collars of woven pearls, deli-
cate little pearl-drops- of various
shapes, strung on twisted pearl chains,
or single ropes of pearls are sugges-
tive of medieval times, and are, there-
fore, in vogue right now.
And here is another word to the
wise; gold is coming back. Again
grandmother's magic box of jewels is
the answer. No doubt you'll find
little gold filigree ornaments, gold
braided chains tasselled at the ends,
massive snakes, and heavy gold brace-
lets. Along with these, look up onyx
bracelets, garnets, and turquoises,'all
of which will make a great hit this
Something a little bit more modern
in design is furnished by chain brace-
lets, from which may be hung little
carved wood Scotties, wearing dia-
mond studded collars. New, too, are
crystal bracelets set with diamonds.
Likewise, in regard to earrings, to
be up to date is to be just as old-
fashioned as possible. Look up tiny
gold arrow shapes that have the ap-
pearance of being shot through your
ears, or gold leaf designs thatseem
to have just blown across the lobes.
For more dressy occasions choose dia-
monds in sprays or feather shapes,
long pearl drops, or pearl and crystal
combinations. Earrings are being
worn in the day time now, but you
should be careful to select those suit-
able to the individual outfit.
Tiny barretts of gold leaves and
diamond arrows have been designed
to meet the needs of the new head-
dress. Curls falling gently toward the
forehead are clipped back in a mass
at the top of the head. They may be
caught, too, by a new white jade
hand, ingeniously fashioned by Lester
Gaba. This form of ornament is
something entirely new, so don't ex-
pect to find it in the old jewel box.
Occasionally, fillets are worn in the
hair, but tiaras are definitely out this
