What really is boho style?

Boho is short for bohemian, a word used to describe a person who doesn't conform to tradition (in behavior or dress code). If boho fashion is all about denim, flowy tops, lots of colour and maxi dresses, then the bling that complements this boho style is equally eclectic! Bohemian style jewellery is actually a mix of different materials and colours designed in a carefree style. The only problem you may have is choosing your favorites.



The Bohemian cultural movement originated in France as a counterculture after the end of the French Revolution in 1799.  Many artists were forced into poverty and adopted a nomadic, alternative lifestyle expressing their creativity through fashion. It was the dawn of boho style.

The trend became mainstream in the 60’s, borrowing from the popular hippie movement elements like flowy silhouettes, hand-crafted boho style jewellery, a penchant for mixing and matching, quirky colour combos, and layering.

Boho style defined laid-back women who rejected über-feminine, sexy fashion. During the 60’s and 70’s, it reached its peak encouraging alternative ladies to be true to themselves and not be afraid to reveal their artistic selves through their jewellery and clothing.

In 2003 boho-chic emerges (a mix of hippie and bohemian influences) being brought to prominence by the likes of Kate Moss and Siena Miller.

Today bohemian jewellery is the trademark of festival goers and sophisticated modern women, adding the finishing touch to any hipster-style outfit.



The pieces channeled by boho chicks are anything but subdued. They vary from statement pendants on long chains and multi-strand bead necklaces to lot's of bangles and large dangle earrings. Boho jewellery often features large colorful tassels, semi-precious stones and silver.
