Dirndl Jewerly- German Style Jewelry to Wear to German Fests or Everyday!
We are headed into German Festival Season… Maifests, Germanfests… and the king of all German Festivals … OKTOBERFEST! Whether or not you wear a Dirndl, it’s always fun to wear Dirndl Jewelry. Necklaces, chokers, bracelets or earrings can help you express your personal style… and show off your love for Germany! There are simple styles, and more elaborate statement pieces that will set you apart from everyone else. There are fun styles like Beer Stein earrings or Pretzel charms, and there are more symbolic pieces that have Edelweiss. There really is something for everyone. Dirndl jewelry or Tracht jewelry looks great with a dirndl… or even just a t-shirt!
Take a look at this fun selection of Dirndl Jewelry and accessories. I’ve even discovered a designer that creates special pieces at a very reasonable cost!
“Whether he’s a doctor, farmer or a Sheikh – Dirndls can make any man turn weak”.
Dirndl Jewelry from Edelweiss Mountain Gems
Recently, I stumbled across these wonderful German jewelry pieces online… and I had to contact the storefront owner to find out more about her, and her wonderful dirndl jewelry. Christine told me that she was originally a trumpet player for “America’s Oktoberfest Band”, the Sauerkrauts. They even opened the German Pavilion at Epcot center. Besides her playing, her self-made jewelry caught the attention of a lot of people, and she started selling it after performances. Today, Christine no longer plays with the band, but she still makes beautiful and affordable jewelry.The charms are all hand selected on her trips to Germany, and “most are one of a kind. So no one else will have another one like yours. I think that makes it special.” She also does special orders or custom work if you want different colors, or more than one for a family or wedding group. All of these would look great with or without a dirndl. (OH! And she also does cute bags that are perfect for tucking away some money, a phone, and keys!)
Necklaces and Chokers…
Didn’t find what you were looking for? There’s a LOT more Dirndl Jewelry to choose from!!
Dirndl Jewelry Set
I love this set … comes with necklace, bracelet and clip earrings (my Aunt won’t wear anything else).
A Charivari as Dirndl Jewelry
Traditionally a Charivari is a Silver chain hung with trinkets and is worn with Lederhosen. The trinkets or charms were usually relate to hunting… things like carved deer teeth, claws, disks made from bone. These treasured items were passed down through the generations, and new bits were occasionally added. Today (as in the past) women wear them with their dirndl. The chains for women are called Erbsketten (Inheritance chains), and are much finer. You will often see silver coins or talisman, in addition to the bone and hunting souvenirs. An old inherited piece could be worth over 10,000€… but you can find less expensive ones here…

Dirdle Necklaces and Chokers
A cute dirndl blouse with the right dirndl bra shows off quite a bit of decoration already.. A simple necklace or a choker can be a great accent without overwhelming the look. New and Vintage styles are available..

Earrings to Wear for German Fests
I’ve read that nice tasteful stud earrings are the traditional earring for a dirndl… but where is the fun in that? If you want to wear dangling pretzels, I say go for it! I’ve also found sweet Edelweiss earrings, and lovely Spätzi stud earrings. Show off your style YOUR WAY!
Ok! Is your Jewelry Box now full of German Jewelry? I’ll see you at the Fest!!
