Design Era

Design & Historical Context

Vintage jewelry refers to jewelry that was produced a certain number of years ago, typically at least 20 years or more. It is often characterized by its unique style, craftsmanship, and use of materials that are no longer in production or are hard to find.

Vintage jewelry can be made from a wide variety of materials, including gold, silver, platinum, and diamonds, as well as less precious materials such as costume jewelry or Bakelite. It can be influenced by a variety of styles and movements, including Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and Retro.

One of the key features of vintage jewelry is its uniqueness and individuality. Unlike modern jewelry, which is often mass-produced, vintage jewelry is often one-of-a-kind or part of a limited production run. This makes it highly collectible and sought after by collectors and vintage enthusiasts.

Vintage jewelry is often associated with a sense of history and nostalgia, and it can be a way to connect with the past and appreciate the craftsmanship and artistry of earlier periods. It is highly collectible and can be found at vintage stores, antique shops, and online marketplaces.

Materials & Craftsmanship

Spinel

Spinel is a gemstone that has been used in jewelry for centuries, but it has only recently gained widespread recognition and appreciation. This is partly due to the fact that spinel and corundum, which includes ruby and sapphire, are often found in the same mines and were therefore often confused in the past. However, spinel and corundum are actually chemically distinct minerals. Spinel is known for its beautiful, natural colors, which can range from red, pink, and purple to blue, black, and even green. It is a hard and durable gemstone, with a Mohs hardness of 8, making it suitable for use in jewelry that may be subjected to wear and tear. In contrast to many other gemstones, natural spinel is often left untreated, which means it is not subjected to the extensive and sometimes invasive enhancements that are used to improve the color or clarity of lower-grade stones. This makes natural spinel a desirable choice for consumers who value the natural beauty of gemstones.

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.
