Give Classic Jewelry A Punk Twist
Some jewelry pieces are classics for a reason. They are the styles that are stunning and timeless, they never go out of fashion. They’re the pearl necklace or diamond stud earrings. The charm bracelet and other go-to gifts for life milestones. There are plenty of quality jewelry pieces which are considered ‘must-haves’ for every woman’s jewelry box.
We all know the classic jewelry pieces that you can trust to be appropriate and rely on for any given occasion. They’re the jewelry styles that have passed the test of time. But what about those times when you’re feeling a little bit rebellious? What if you don’t want to fit the mold?
That’s the feeling of men and women in the 70’s when the rebellious punk trend kicked off in London. Punk fashion takes elements from the distinct social dress of other subcultures. Style influences include glam rock, skinheads, rude boys, greasers, and mods. There are many different art and music movements which have influenced punk fashion.
