The early 1950 styles of jewelry were made famous by Hollywood and the many actresses that wore the pieces in their films. They started a fad with some of these pieces. Once it caught on, everybody wanted the same beautiful silver pieces that they had even if they weren’t the real pieces. Some people like the silver penny bracelets from the 1940’s. These were glued onto a silver necklace or bracelet and worn. Then you had real money on your wrist or around your neck. Flashy silver broaches with huge stones set in them brought on a new rage in the late 1950’s. They also used floral pieces, pictures of birds, and ribbons and bows to design their silver pieces of jewelry. There was also a shift away from straight and narrow designs. Many started collecting big geometric shapes and designs on their silver pieces.
