Design Area

Area Information

Art Nouveau, also known as the Modern Style or or Jugendstil, is a decorative art movement that emerged in the late 19th century and was popular until World War I. It is characterized by its use of flowing, organic lines and naturalistic motifs, such as flowers, plants, and animals, as well as its emphasis on craftsmanship and the use of unconventional materials, such as glass, ceramic, and metal.

Art Nouveau jewelry often features intricate and detailed designs, with a focus on curved lines and natural forms. The jewelry is often made of precious metals, such as gold and silver, and may be adorned with gemstones, enamels, and other decorative elements.

One of the most distinctive features of Art Nouveau jewelry is its use of elongated, sinuous lines and flowing, organic shapes, which were meant to evoke a sense of movement and fluidity. The jewelry often depicts nature themes, such as flowers, vines, and leaves, as well as abstract and symbolic motifs, such as the female form, which was often depicted in a sensual or romanticized way.

Art Nouveau jewelry was popular in many countries, including France, Belgium, Austria, and the United States, and was produced by a wide range of designers and artists, including Louis Comfort Tiffany, René Lalique, and Gustav Klimt. Despite the popularity of Art Nouveau, the movement eventually fell out of favor after World War I, and was replaced by more geometric and industrial styles. However, it has often been revived and continues to influence contemporary jewelry design.

Materials

Material Information

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.

single-cut diamond

A single cut diamond is a type of diamond cut that was popular in the 1300s and is still used today in some antique jewelry. It is characterized by a large table, an octagonal girdle, and a culet (the bottom edge of the diamond) that may be pointed or flat. Single cut diamonds usually have 18 facets, which are small, flat surfaces that are cut into the diamond to create a specific shape and enhance its sparkle and brilliance.

Single cut diamonds are usually smaller in size and less brilliant than modern diamond cuts, such as round brilliant or princess cuts. They are often used in antique jewelry or as accent stones in modern jewelry designs. Single cut diamonds are typically less expensive than diamonds with more modern cuts because they require less labor and material to produce.

Despite their lower price, single cut diamonds can still be beautiful and valuable. They are a popular choice for collectors of antique jewelry and for those who appreciate the timeless beauty of vintage cuts.

platinum

Platinum is a white metallic element that is known for its strength, durability, and resistance to tarnish and corrosion. It belongs to a group of elements called the platinum group metals, which also includes osmium, iridium, palladium, rhodium, and ruthenium.

Platinum is often found in nature as an alloy, which is a mixture of two or more elements. It can be mixed with other platinum group metals or with other elements such as copper, nickel, or cobalt. It wasn't until 1804 that all of the elements in the platinum group were isolated and named, with the exception of osmium, which was not isolated until 1841.

Platinum is a highly prized metal that is often used in the manufacture of fine jewelry. It is malleable, meaning that it can be easily molded and shaped, and it is ductile, meaning that it can be drawn into thin wires or sheets. It is also very strong, which makes it suitable for use in a wide range of applications.

Platinum is named after the Spanish word "platina," which means "little silver." It is thought to have been named this because of its white metallic luster, which is similar to that of silver. Platinum was first discovered by the Spanish conquistadors in South America, near the Pinto River in present-day Columbia.
