Area Information

The 1950s were a time of great cultural and technological change, marked by the emergence of rock 'n' roll, the birth of the "Beat" Generation, the launch of Sputnik, and the beginning of the space race. These events, and the knowledge that the world was living in a nuclear age, contributed to the development of an aesthetic known as the "Atomic Age," which was reflected in various aspects of design, including jewelry.
In 1947, Christian Dior introduced a new look in fashion that brought back a more feminine silhouette, rejecting the somber styles that had been popular during wartime. This new look, featuring a fitted bodice and décolleté neckline atop a full skirt flowing out from a tight-fitted waistline, called for a revised design aesthetic for the jewelry and accessories that accompanied it. Jewelry during this time was characterized by a trend towards more elaborate and ornate pieces, with the phrase "the more the merrier" seeming to apply.
To complete this elegant and stylish look, diamonds set in platinum were often worn across the feminine décolletage and on the ears, which were newly revealed by upswept hair held in place by diamond clips. The DeBeers Diamond Corporation ensured that the demand for diamonds would not wane with their "A Diamond is Forever" campaign, which promoted the use of diamonds at all income levels, particularly the rapidly growing middle class. They also cleverly awarded prizes to jewelers worldwide who incorporated beauty, design, function, and diamonds into their modern compositions.

Material Information

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.

carre-cut diamond

Carré diamonds are known for their clean lines and simple yet elegant appearance. They are a popular choice for engagement rings, as well as for other types of jewelry such as earrings and pendants. One of the main advantages of the carré cut is that it allows the maximum amount of light to pass through the diamond, creating a bright and sparkling appearance.

The carré cut is often confused with the princess cut, which is a more modern diamond shape that is also square in appearance. However, the carré cut is distinguished by its 90 degree corners and large upper facet, which are not present in the princess cut.

As with other diamond cuts, the quality of a carré diamond is determined by the 4 C's: carat weight, color, clarity, and cut. A well-cut carré diamond with excellent clarity and color will have a higher value than a poorly cut diamond with inclusions or a yellowish tint.

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.
