The roaring 20s or crazy 60s? Take your pick!

Do you ask yourself sometimes: how would have been like to be born and live in a different period of time? To feel the pulse of the roaring '20s in New York or the life in Paris in the Thirties? What about to live in London in the crazy '60s?

Your style would have been different, that's for sure. But can you imagine yourself all dressed up and with a haircut according to the fashion trends of each decade? Oh, it is fun to look back and imagine a different world, with a different version of yourself. 

I was also curious about the jewelry women wore back then. So two days ago I've decided to search on jewels made in each decade of the 20th century. It was an interesting game to play. :) Check out my virtual collection of jewels from 1900 till the '90s, do you like it?
