If you are looking for jewelry from a particular period, we have a magnificent selection for your consideration. For example, if you are a follower of Georgian jewelry, you may want to look for classic chandelier earrings, an enduring and on-trend look, or the rivière necklaces and floral spray brooches so typical of the era, featuring shapes from the natural world such as leaves, birds and flowers designed in garnets, white and rose diamonds, coral and topaz.
Many brides-to-be these days love the look of romantic Victorian era jewelry. It was flowery and sentimental with intricate filigree, hearts, bows and flowers, perfect as an engagement ring for the bride with classically whimsical tastes. Diamonds and semi-precious stones such as amethyst, garnets, opals and coral were also all the rage.
Art Deco more your style? It is one of the hottest new “old” looks in jewelry styles, and you will be hard pressed to find anything ‘chicer’ these days. In typical Art Deco style is a cocktail ring featuring an oversized centered gem or jewel, typically a diamond solitaire in a geometric cut such as a baguette, emerald cut, triangle, or shield – a dazzling, one-of-a kind choice for an engagement ring; other stones such as rubies, sapphires, onyx, emeralds, coral or jade were used as accents stones with the diamonds.
What about Art Nouveau? Art Nouveau design favored natural graceful designs, such as flowers, birds, dragonflies, and animals, in curved, slender shapes. Long pearl necklaces became very fashionable during this era, and agate, garnet, and translucent gemstones such as opal and moonstones were most often used.
If a more updated look is your thing, Retro is all about 40s Hollywood glamour; yellow and rose gold settings, dazzling gemstones like citrine and aquamarine, oversized rings, bracelets and necklaces, charm bracelets typify the Retro look – and 50s style was all about elegant pearls and diamond cocktail rings.
