Design Era

Era Information

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.

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.

Hematite

Hematite, also spelled haematite, is a mineral form of iron oxide with the chemical formula Fe2O3. It is the most abundant iron oxide mineral on Earth and is the oldest known iron oxide mineral. Hematite has a reddish-brown to black or silver-gray color and a rust-red streak. It is mined as the primary ore of iron and is also found in banded iron formations and as a secondary mineral formed by weathering processes in soil.

Hematite crystallizes in the rhombohedral lattice system and has the same crystal structure as ilmenite and corundum. It forms a solid solution with ilmenite at temperatures above 950ยฐC. Hematite is harder than pure iron, but it is more brittle. Maghemite is a related oxide mineral that is a mixture of hematite and magnetite.

Hematite is found in a variety of forms, including kidney ore, martite, iron rose, and specularite. It is often found in places with standing water or mineral hot springs, such as those in Yellowstone National Park in the United States. Hematite can also be precipitated out of water and collected in layers at the bottom of a lake, spring, or other standing water. It can also occur without water, typically as a result of volcanic activity.

Clay-sized hematite crystals can also be found in soils, where they are responsible for the red color of many tropical or highly weathered soils. Hematite is used in a variety of applications, including the production of iron, as a pigment in paint and cosmetics, and in 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.

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.
