|Design & Historical Context
Contemporary jewellery is a type of jewellery that reflects current trends and styles, and is often made from a variety of materials beyond the traditional precious metals and stones. This allows contemporary jewellery to have a more modern and unique appearance compared to classic jewellery. To create contemporary jewellery, it is necessary to have both specialized training and a deep understanding of the subject. The contemporary style combines historical techniques and artistic expression with innovative ideas and materials, giving it a distinct personality that falls between fashionable mass-produced jewellery and traditional artisanal works of art.

Aquamarine is a gemstone that belongs to the beryl family and is known for its pale green-blue to medium dark blue color. Its name comes from the Latin word "aqua," which means "water," and "marina," which means "from the sea," reflecting the gemstone's color and association with the ocean.
Aquamarine is a hard and durable gemstone, making it suitable for use in all types of jewelry. It is often cut into faceted stones or shaped into cabochons for use in engagement and wedding rings, earrings, pendants, and other types of jewelry.
Aquamarine is found in various parts of the world, including Brazil, Madagascar, and Zambia. The color of aquamarine is caused by iron impurities within the crystal, and the deeper the color, the more valuable the gemstone is considered to be.
In addition to its beauty and durability, aquamarine is also believed to have certain healing properties and is often used in crystal healing practices. It is said to promote calm and balance, and to have a soothing effect on the mind and body.
Aquamarine has been popular for centuries, and it is still a highly sought-after gemstone today.
The round brilliant cut is a type of diamond cut that was developed in the early 1900s and is now the most popular and widely used diamond cut. It is characterized by a circular girdle and 58 facets, which are small, flat surfaces that are cut into the diamond to create a specific shape and enhance its sparkle and brilliance. Unlike the old European cut, the round brilliant cut does not have a culet (the bottom edge of the diamond).
The round brilliant cut was designed to maximize the fire and brilliance of a diamond, and it has become the standard cut for diamonds. It is known for its bright, sparkling appearance and is often used in engagement rings and other high-end jewelry. The round brilliant cut became prevalent during the Art Deco and Retro periods and is still widely used today.
Round brilliant cut diamonds are typically more expensive than diamonds with other cuts because they require more labor and material to produce. However, they are considered the highest quality and most desirable type of diamond cut, and they are a popular choice for those who want the highest level of sparkle and brilliance in their jewelry.
18k gold is a type of gold alloy that is commonly used in jewelry making. It is made up of 75% gold and 25% other metals, such as copper, silver, or palladium. The addition of other metals helps to increase the durability and strength of the gold, making it more suitable for use in jewelry. 18k gold is softer and more prone to scratching than higher karat golds, such as 22k or 24k, but it is still a popular choice for jewelry because of its warm, yellow color and good resistance to tarnishing. It is also less expensive than higher karat golds due to the smaller amount of gold used in the alloy. 18k gold is a popular choice for engagement rings, wedding bands, and other fine jewelry items.
