Old Money Style Jewelry - the new trend of old money

There has been a lot of discussion lately about the Old Money Style Trend. Younger people in particular, who like to call themselves Generation Z or are referred to as such by the media, love this trend. He became known and popular primarily through social media platforms such as TikTok and Instagram. Many people wonder what's so special about it.

In any case, the media attention shows that this style leaves a lasting impression on fashion-conscious people. Perhaps it is therefore important to describe this fashion trend in more detail.

What is Old Money Style?

This fashion style can be traced back to the fashion of the so-called "old rich" or "the old money". This refers to the wealth that the older generation achieved through hard (usually classic industrial) work and entrepreneurial risk. In the past, only people who dared to do something and worked hard for it became rich. This wealth was then passed down through (family) generations. Therefore, they differ significantly from the so-called nouveau riche. They achieved their prosperity through other fortunate circumstances (new) and often through new economic sectors. For the newly rich, wealth is not part of the family tree, the DNA. Rather, it is the story of “rags to riches” that is told here. The Old Money Style Trend is therefore not only a homage to the wealth of the old rich, but also a sign of clear distinction from the people >Nouveau richeand their extravagant style. However, that doesn't always have to be the case. There are also various other reasons to choose this style and play with it consciously.

What is Old Money Style Fashion?

The clothing in this trend is strongly based on the style of older, wealthy people. For example, men like to wear pleated trousers, shirts and sweaters. This also includes sweaters made of high-quality wool that are casually thrown over the shoulder. Women wear pleated skirts or dresses with noticeable button placket. Popular colors include white, blue and of course gray. The cut of the clothing is usually rather simple and plain. The young people dress as if they were members of a rich family dynasty. Particularly important for all items of clothing in this trend is the high quality and the absence of large logos and prints. You don't show what you have through the brand logo, but rather the cut, design, quality and combination of the clothing. The newly rich, on the other hand, often want to make it clear that they now belong in the world of the rich. And the brand logo can often not be visible and intrusive enough for this. You show what you have (now).

Quiet Luxury matters

The term Quiet Luxury stands for unobtrusive luxury and is often used in direct connection with Old Money Style. Another term for this trend is Stealth Wealth. This stands for invisible prosperity. This means that all fashion and accessories are rather subtle. Nobody wants to be seen as a dazzling show business figure. In earlier times, not everyone could be seen as having a certain level of wealth. There are now a lot of manufacturers that produce fashion and accessories in the Old Money style. Demand is high, so quiet luxury brands such as Loro Piana, Jil Sander and Bottega Veneta are currently making high profits.

There are also beautiful pieces of jewelry for men with which they can express their individual style. Subtle accessories round off a fashionable outfit perfectly . Rhodium-plated silver jewelry is very popular. It looks very classy and is robust at the same time. Non-rhodium-plated silver jewelry discolors slightly over time. The shine also disappears. It is different if the jewelry is sealed with rhodium. Then it not only retains its shine for longer, but it is also less sensitive to scratches or chemical stress. Untreated silver jewelry sometimes suffers from reactions with body care products or when bathing in salt water. Rhodium-plated jewelry is much more durable. This of course also applies to Old Money Style jewelry .
