Downton Abbey Jewellery Collection

Downton Abbey Jewellery Collection

Lately everybody seems to be talking about Downton Abbey, the critically-acclaimed British television drama set in the early 1900’s.  The main filming location is Highclere Castle in Hampshire, England.  The fourth season hit an average of 11.8 million viewers, making Downton Abbey the highest-rated television drama in 2013.  Fans are eagerly anticipating the fifth season.  Why is this show so successful?  Is it the cinematography and grand set design?  Or the passion and tragedy?  I think it’s the vintage fashion.  Playing dress up on the big screen.

I’m delighted to see that 1928 Jewelry carries the exclusive Downton Abbey Jewellery Collection, featuring motifs from the late Victorian and early Edwardian eras.  Use coupon code ssnov25 to save 25% off at 1928 Jewelry until November 30, 2013.  Free shipping over $50.

Below are some items from this collection that caught my eye.  Hopefully my husband will read this post.   😉
