We love exploring jewelry and checking out intricate and elaborate gemstone encrusted pieces. So, we decided to dig into the history of vintage jewelry to see how it all began.
Jewelry designs from the 17th to 19th century are what we usually consider vintage. The Georgian era, known for extremely rare jewelry, includes handmade, nature-inspired designs with precious stones. Victorian jewelry includes designs from nature, gold etching, diamonds and stones like amethyst, garnet, and onyx. This era is also known for ornate hat pins and star and crescent pendants and brooches featuring sapphire, diamond, and peridot.
The international Arts and Crafts movement saw a return to handmade jewelry with uncut stones in their unique, natural shapes. Edwardian jewelry featured expensive diamonds, rubies, and emerald arrangements. The Art Nouveau era saw the resurgence of natural designs and the merging of abstract with representational patterns. The Art Deco era was fascinated by architecture and geometric designs, while the Retro era featured huge bracelets, bangles, cocktail rings, watches, and charm bracelets.
Mesmerizing gemstones such as blue sapphire, emerald, ruby, aquamarine, tanzanite, garnet, opal, peridot, and amethyst are used to make some of the best vintage-inspired jewelry today.
