A Flapper’s Ingenuity & Elegance

by on July 1st, 2016

Rarely does combining one generation’s design with another’s meet with success, but in the 1920s, women claimed a new right to define their own style with boldness and genuine audacity, sometimes to fantastic effect.

Pictured here, is an example of the combination of periods, assembled to produce an utterly new jewel that still respects, but re-creates a collector’s prize possession.

Subtly and almost, impossibly graduated colors and sizes of natural pearls move and suspend an equally rare and carefully grouped collection of natural-colored diamonds. Honey and cinnamon brown diamonds find company with iridescent brownish pearls descending into little cascades of pink gulf and conch pearls. Nearly invisible settings of old mine diamonds framed by perfect milgrains and piercings make up the Beaux Arts/Nouveau pendant that is the original long chain of the Edwardian aristocrat, and then the magic happens… The long chain, split at the back, becomes the suspension of the Art Deco colored diamond and black pearl dress clip attached.

Worn with tassels to the diving back or modest front of the flapper’s dress, the complement is stunning in it’s integrity. Every delicate quality of the original pendant is echoed in the perfection and artistry of the Asscher family cuts of kite and square yellow diamonds. The hints of peacock iridescence in the chosen black of the Deco pearls with now brilliant-cut diamonds perfectly paved in geometric settings joins seamlessly to fit the costume of the liberated and striking owner.

Old jewels carry far more than their gems alone. The history and lives of the time always linger, waiting to come back to life, to tell their story together with that of each owner: Worth times worth.

An Extraordinary Demi-Parure from the 1860s

by on April 16th, 2016

Time capsules are meant to be rare and wonderful discoveries. To find them in the same condition as when they were first worn is to be transported back (in this case, to the time of the Civil War).

This garnet ‘parure’- set of jewels- is completed by its original French velvet fitted box. There are no repairs and none needed. The gold setting and central natural pearls are rarities reserved for the extraordinary Bohemian work on display here.

1860-70 in its glory.

A Jewel’s Meaning: Less Price Point than Story

by on February 7th, 2016

There’s a lot of reasons to give a present and it seems like a new one every day; the culture of giving has grown with the addition of new cultures to the US. Always, the greatest quality of any of these gifts though, is meaning.

Rarity, beauty, craftsmanship and history are a part of the message, but the heart of it, is the heart that gives it. Picking something rare and appealing to someone you know well, carries that care forever. Suddenly, a thing becomes beautiful in a new way, unique to its moment and imbued with qualities of another dimension of thought and memory.

This is why, carefully chosen, a relatively inexpensive engagement ring can be valued as highly as the Hope Diamond: it’s just a matter of meaning.

The 12.10ct Intense Yellow Old Miner

by on December 11th, 2015

Gypsy and $400,000 may sound at odds, but what this ring is… is a Bohemian Rhapsody.

An antique diamond of rare size smoldering a wonderful yellow that is also elegant and wearable! The sort of jewel that completes a festival of cloth, color and bangle or is punctuation to a simple black dress. Itself, a treasure that never screams diamond, but does speak volumes about style and taste: Never cheap, always there and always fun.
