Thank you for visiting and welcome to the new home of the Peppermint Twist Vintage website!
Since it is November - it's time to start thinking about HOLIDAY shopping and Peppermint Twist Vintage is the place for vintage jewelry.
According to Vogue Magazine, Winter 2019-2020 jewelry trends are:
- Chunky Necklaces (rope, bib)
- Chunky bracelets
- Dangling earrings (including single earrings!)
Many of these items are already mainstays of vintage collections. But if you wish to follow the newest trends, why not add some vintage flare to your style?
I don't really follow modern-day VOGUE trends since I love vintage fashion vs. newer styles. But, one of my past times is perusing old back issues of vintage magazines including LIFE, LOOK, and other publications to review the glorious jewelry ads from the 1940's to 1960's. The advertisements seem to have so much originality and elegance.
Let’s take a look a look at some vintage advertisements, along with examples of Peppermint Twist Jewelry available for sale that compliment the modern-day jewelry trends..I hope they provide YOU with some inspiration for your holiday shopping needs since you can purchase many of these items from us directly.
First, this 1953 Monet advertisement is simple but the catch line is wonderful: "Gifts in the Golden Manner of Monet" for her ears, her throat or her arms.
Available from Peppermint Twist Vintage are MONET bracelets, necklaces and brooches in various styles including this Monet Gold Tone Rope Link Necklace (shown below)
A wonderful Monet Dog brooch in the original gift box also available for purchase! So adorable!
I also love this MONET holiday ad (however, I myself won't promote fur so I just think of her wearing a faux fur coat!) The arm of fashion by MONET. Stunning!
Monet bracelets are wonderful and Peppermint Twist Vintage has two wonderful, bracelets for purchase including this wonderful chunky spinner bangle (Monet hallmarked.)
Or this one - I love this rope bracelet with the safety clasp!
Next, I love this Trafari Christmas tree advertisement, adorned with jewelry! Pick her a gift from the Trafari Tree of Dreams. Such a great phrase!
These wonderful comfort clip Trafari, gold toned earrings are still with the original card. Stunning clip-ons with comfort backings.
Also, although this isn't a Christmas advertisement, it is definitely is promoting holiday jewelry.
I wear Coro jewelry because it's so versatile, reasonably priced and elegant. It was the 1950's department store trendsetting fashion!
This wonderful parure set, signed by Coro, has never been worn and still has the tags on them and would make the ideal gift. It's so wonderful in ice blue and silver and would love great for any holiday party!
I also recommend this wonderful aurora borealis amber and gold set, also by CORO. This earrings, necklace and bracelet set in mint condition - makes a great gift.
This three piece set is wonderful!
Or if chunky necklaces are more your style and to follow this year's trend, this stunning GIVENCHY rope necklace is available for purchase! Hallmarked designer style 1960's jewelry makes an unforgettable gift.
Also, I love this advertisement for the MONET bib necklace. She looks so elegant wearing mauve with gold jewelry!
We carry a similiar, although unbranded elegant one. Although it is unsigned, I think of Cleopatra when I see this necklace and you can make yourself feel like her also by wearing this also!
Lastly, I always feel that we forget about the men in our lives - be in a partner, uncle, father, brother or friend. During the holiday season, these wonderful SWANK cuff links make a great gift and the advertisement below is just wonderful!
For a Christmas gift of Quality..give SWANK. I love the LOGO and the colours.

We have a selection of cufflinks for men (or even for woman - why not?), including the SWANK brand in tiger eye blue.
Very similar to the SWANK set above, is this wonderful emerald green set of cuff links and tie clip set by jewelry brand 1968! I love the colour with the gold!
In our next blog, we will feature the other great fashion trend - brooches.
Whatever your jewelry style, don't let the hustle and bustle get you down.
