The Elegance of Antique Diamond Bracelets & Bangles
The extensive variety of antique diamond bracelets offered by Dover Jewelry & Diamonds represents, vintage, Art Deco and estate periods. Whereas bracelets from the earlier Victorian era displayed their distinct characteristic of colored precious and semi-precious gemstones set on a centrally positioned décor, the later Edwardian bracelets (1901-1910) tended toward purely monochromatic aesthetic, with diamonds used as the gemstone par excellence and more often mounted on platinum rather than on white gold.
During the Art Deco movement which lasted roughly 30 years and spammed from 1910 to 1939, not only did the jewelry style, but also the whole lifestyle throughout Europe experience drastic changes. In the world of jewelry, stones such as topaz and aquamarine which had been out of fashion for a long time, tended to reappear and were abundant enough to supply all jewelers. Art Deco jewelry made use of color-contrasting gemstones such as diamonds & onyx, yellow diamonds and sapphire, etc. juxtaposed side by side to create the contrasting effect. The other quintessential feature of Art Deco jewelry was an emphasis on geometric features.
To the extent that even diamonds tended to follow the new rule to have the 'geometric' effect. Table and baguette diamonds were alongside the classic cuts, producing a play of light in the scintillating surface of the ornament.
All this was possible thanks to the availability of platinum as precious metal which was considerably easier to work with than gold! In view, of the ongoing popularity of Art Deco styles and combination of colors, Dover Jewelry & Diamonds has endeavored to procure authentic pieces from that era since the company was established. Our collection of Art Deco bracelets include not only combination of contrasting precious stones (Emerald and diamond, sapphire and diamond, etc.) but also exquisite link bracelets swathed in variously-cut diamonds to produce the geometric effect characteristic of the era. Some of the Art Deco vintage Diamond bracelets in Dover Jewelry & Diamonds' collection are of finer aesthetic, classified as 'line' or 'tennis' bracelet, while others are of greater width and incorporate geometrically inspired flexible links.
