Design Era

Design & Historical Context

Art Deco jewelry, also known as Jazz Age jewelry, became popular in the 1920s and remained in style through the 1930s. It was named after the Exposition International des Arts Dรฉcoratifs et Industriels Modernes, a exhibition held in Paris in 1925 that was largely dedicated to the jewelry arts. This style was inspired by a variety of cultural and artistic movements, such as Oriental, African, and South American art, as well as Cubism and Fauvism. Art Deco jewelry is known for its sharp, straight lines and emphasis on modernity and the machine age.

During the Art Deco era, there were significant improvements in diamond cutting techniques, which made diamonds more radiant and sparkling than ever before. This, along with increased prosperity, allowed more people to afford diamond jewelry and engagement rings. Additionally, new casting techniques made it possible to produce more intricate and detailed settings.

Art Deco jewelry was not only fashionable but also reflected the social and cultural changes of the time. The bold, modern design of Art Deco jewelry reflected the liberation and empowerment of women during the 1920s and 1930s. Today, Art Deco jewelry is highly sought after by collectors and is often featured in museum exhibitions and high-end auctions.

Materials & Craftsmanship

Emerald

Emeralds are a variety of the mineral beryl, and their green color is due to the presence of chromium and sometimes vanadium impurities in the crystal structure. The best emeralds are highly transparent and have a rich, velvety green color. The color of an emerald can range from pale green to deep, rich green, and is often described as being similar to the color of grass or leaves.

Emeralds have long been prized for their beauty and have been used in jewelry and other decorative objects for centuries. They are often cut into a variety of shapes, including oval, cushion, and pear, and are sometimes set in gold or platinum to enhance their beauty. Emeralds are also often treated to improve their color and clarity, and these treatments should be disclosed to the buyer.

In terms of hardness, emeralds rank between 7.5 and 8 on the Mohs scale, making them relatively soft compared to other precious gemstones such as diamonds, which rank a 10 on the Mohs scale. This means that emeralds can be more prone to scratching and chipping, and should be handled with care.

In addition to being used in jewelry, emeralds are also used in some traditional medical systems for their supposed healing properties. They are believed to have the ability to calm the mind and emotions, and to promote balance and harmony.

Overall, emeralds are a highly prized and sought-after gemstone due to their stunning green color and the symbolism and symbolism associated with them.

Old-mine-cut diamond

The old mine cut is a type of diamond cut that was popular in the 1700s and was most prevalent during the Georgian and Victorian eras. It is similar to today's cushion cut and is characterized by a squarish girdle with gently rounded corners, a high crown, a small table, and a large, flat culet.

Old mine cut diamonds are known for their antique charm and character, and they are often used in vintage-style jewelry. They have a softer, more romantic look than modern diamond cuts, which tend to have more precise geometry and a higher level of brilliance.

Old mine cut diamonds are typically less expensive than diamonds with more modern cuts because they require less labor and material to produce. They are often used as accent stones in jewelry designs or as the main gemstone in vintage-style pieces. Despite their lower price, old mine cut diamonds can still be beautiful and valuable, and they are a popular choice for those who appreciate the unique charm and character of antique jewelry.

18k

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.
