Design Era

Design & Historical Context

The term "antique" refers to something that is more than 100 years old, and this includes jewelry that was created and used over several decades or eras. Antique jewelry can include pieces from a variety of different time periods, such as the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, and Art Deco periods.

Each of these periods is characterized by its own unique style and artistic movements, and antique jewelry from these periods is often highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. Georgian jewelry, for example, is known for its intricate detailing and use of precious materials such as gold and diamonds, and is often influenced by the Baroque, Rococo, and Neoclassical styles.

Victorian jewelry, on the other hand, is known for its intricate detailing and use of precious materials such as gold and diamonds, and is often influenced by the Romantic and Gothic styles. Edwardian jewelry is characterized by its delicate and intricate detailing, and is often influenced by the Art Nouveau, the Arts and Crafts movement, and the Belle Époque.

Antique jewelry is often highly collectible and is valued for its unique style, craftsmanship, and historical significance. It can be found at antique shops, vintage stores, and online marketplaces.

Materials & Craftsmanship

Paste

Paste is a term that is used to refer to glass when it is used as a gemstone imitation. Glass has been used to create gemstone imitations for thousands of years because it is transparent, can be colored in a wide range of colors, and can be polished to resemble many different types of gemstones.

The use of paste as a gemstone imitation dates back to ancient Greek society, although glass-making had been around for much longer by that time. Glass was used to create imitations of various gemstones, including diamonds, sapphires, and rubies. The term "paste" is still used today to refer to glass imitations of gemstones, although it is less commonly used than it was in the past.

Pearl

Pearls are small, round, and lustrous objects that are produced by certain types of mollusks, which are invertebrate animals that belong to the phylum Mollusca. Mollusks include a wide range of species, including oysters, clams, mussels, snails, and octopuses, among others.

While all mollusks have the ability to produce pearls, only a few varieties are able to create gem-quality pearls that are suitable for use in jewelry. These include the oysters that produce akoya pearls, the freshwater mussels that produce freshwater pearls, and the South Sea and Tahitian pearls, which are produced by large saltwater oysters.

Pearls are formed when an irritant, such as a grain of sand or a parasite, enters the mollusk and becomes trapped inside its shell. In response to the irritant, the mollusk secretes a substance called nacre, which coats the irritant and eventually forms a pearl.

The quality of a pearl is determined by a number of factors, including its size, shape, color, and luster. High-quality pearls are prized for their beauty and are used in a variety of different types of jewelry, including necklaces, earrings, and bracelets.

20k

20k gold, marked as '833', indicates that it contains 83.3% pure gold, with the remaining 16.7% made up of other metals like silver, copper, or zinc. This composition gives it a distinct color and physical properties.

The specific use of 20k gold can be traced back to various cultures and periods, where it was prized for its high gold content while still being more durable than pure gold.

In many cultures, higher karat gold like 20k is often associated with luxury, status, and wealth. It has been used in traditional jewelry, religious artifacts, and as a form of currency or investment.

Enhance the Beauty of Your Jewelry with Proper Care

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.

By following these tips, you can enjoy your precious jewelry for many years to come.
