Era Information

The jewelry industry was significantly impacted by the onset of World War II in the 1940s. Precious metals, particularly platinum, became scarce and in some cases were even banned from being sold. Palladium was used as a substitute for platinum in the war effort. In order to make the most of the limited supply of gold, a low karat gold alloy with a higher percentage of copper was used. This resulted in gold with a subtle, reddish hue, but through the use of different alloys, gold was able to appear in a range of colors within a single piece. Gold was also manipulated in various ways, such as being woven, braided, and coiled. Techniques like resilla, cannetille, and lacy filigree patterns reappeared in jewelry. Different textures were also used within a single design, with matte finishes being placed next to bright finishes to accentuate the design. Gold became the primary metal used in jewelry during the 1940s and 1950s.

Material Information

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.

Ruby

Ruby is a beautiful pink to blood-red colored gemstone that is a variety of the mineral corundum (aluminum oxide). The red color of ruby is caused mainly by the presence of the element chromium, which gives the stone its characteristic hue. The name "ruby" comes from the Latin word "ruber," which means "red."

Ruby is one of the four precious stones, along with the sapphire, the emerald, and the diamond. It is highly prized for its beauty and is often used in a variety of different types of jewelry, including rings, earrings, pendants, and bracelets.

Ruby is a very hard and durable gemstone, with a hardness of 9 on the Mohs scale (out of 10). It is resistant to scratches and other types of damage, which makes it a popular choice for use in jewelry.

In addition to its use in jewelry, ruby is also believed to have various healing properties and is sometimes used in traditional medicine. It is thought to have calming and balancing effects, and is sometimes used in meditation practices.

14k

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.

Wearing your jewelry is a special way to express yourself and add a touch of personal style to any look. However, to ensure your jewelry remains in pristine condition, there are a few simple steps you need to take to keep it looking its best.

General Care Instructions:

Remove jewelry when showering or bathing, especially when at the beach, in the sea or in chlorinated water.
Avoid wearing jewelry while doing physical work such as housekeeping, gardening or exercise.
Storing your jewelry in a dry and cool place will help protect it from moisture, dirt and dust.
Keeping it away from harsh chemicals such as bleach, ammonia and chlorine will help to avoid discoloration and damage.
Cleaning your jewelry regularly with a soft cloth will help to keep it looking shiny and new.
Avoid exposing your jewelry to extreme temperatures, such as leaving it in direct sunlight or near a heater, as this can cause damage.
Handle your jewelry carefully and avoid dropping it, as this can cause the stones to loosen or the metals to scratch.
Finally, if possible, have your jewelry professionally checked and serviced. This will ensure that any potential problems are spotted and fixed before they become worse.
