|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.

Carnelian is a type of semiprecious gemstone that is a variety of chalcedony, which is itself a form of quartz. It is known for its reddish-orange color, which can range from pale to deep red. The name "carnelian" comes from the Latin word "carnis," which means "flesh," due to the gemstone's reddish color.
Carnelian has been used as a gemstone since ancient times. It was popular in ancient Egypt and was often used to create jewelry and other decorative items. In the ancient world, carnelian was believed to have various properties, including the ability to increase energy and vitality, improve communication skills, and protect against negativity.
Today, carnelian is still used in jewelry-making and is often used to create beads, pendants, and other decorative items. It is also believed to have certain healing properties and is often used in crystal healing practices.
14k gold is a popular choice for use in jewelry because it is durable, yet still relatively affordable compared to higher karat golds like 18k or 24k. It is made up of 58.5% pure gold and is mixed with other metals to make it harder and more durable. 14k gold is available in a range of colors, including yellow, white, and rose, and is commonly used in a variety of jewelry pieces such as rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. One of the advantages of 14k gold is that it is more resistant to wear and tear than pure gold, which makes it suitable for everyday wear. However, it is still softer than other alloys such as stainless steel or platinum, so it may require more maintenance to keep it looking its best. Overall, 14k gold is a popular choice for those who want the look and feel of gold, but at a more affordable price point.
