Design Area

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

topaz

Topaz is a silicate mineral that is typically found in a variety of colors, including colorless, yellow, orange, pink, red, blue, green, brown, and purple. It is an affordable and durable gemstone that has been prized for centuries for its beauty and versatility. The most valuable and sought-after topaz varieties are the blue and pink varieties, which are relatively rare.

Topaz is known for its hardness and durability, making it an ideal choice for everyday wear. It has a Mohs hardness rating of 8, which means it can withstand scratches and chips better than many other gemstones. Topaz is also resistant to heat, making it a good choice for use in jewelry that may be exposed to high temperatures.

Topaz is believed to have a number of healing properties, including the ability to improve mental clarity and focus, enhance creativity, and promote feelings of joy and well-being. It is also thought to have grounding and calming energy, making it a popular choice for use in meditation and energy healing practices.

Topaz is a gemstone that is widely available and can be found in a variety of cuts and shapes, including round, oval, pear, cushion, and emerald. It is often set in rings, pendants, earrings, and other types of jewelry, and can be found in both fine and costume 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.
