Design Era

Design & Historical Context

The Victorian Era spanned Queen Victoria's rule of England from 1837 until 1901. During this time, a middle class began to emerge, sparking a demand for jewelry in the mass market, jewelry trends often reflected the tone of current events. The era is usually divided into several subsections: the Romantic Period from 1837 to 1861, the Grand Period from 1861 to 1880, and the Aesthetic Period from 1880 to 1901.

During the Romantic Period jewelry also featured nature-inspired designs, similar to jewelry of the Georgian era. Frequently, these designs were delicately and intricately etched into gold. Lockets and brooches were popular in daytime jewelry during the early Victorian era, whereas colored gemstones and diamonds were worn during the evening.

During the Grand Period jewelry , because the Grand or Mid-Victorian era corresponded with the death of Queen Victoria's husband, many jewelry pieces have solemn, somber designs. Known as mourning jewelry, the pieces feature heavy, dark stones. Jet, onyx, amethyst, and garnet are frequently found in jewelry from this period. Compared to previous periods, Mid-Victorian-era jewelry features highly creative, colorful designs using shells, mosaics and gemstones.

During the Aesthetic period, jewelers used diamonds and feminine, bright gemstones such as sapphire, peridot, and spinel. Star and crescent designs as well as elaborate hat pins were also popular. Some scholars believe the aesthetic era began sooner, in 1875, and ended as early as 1890.

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.

Brilliant-cut diamond

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

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.
