The Interbellum or the interwar period (1918–1939) is understood, within recent Western culture, to be the period between the end of the First World War and the beginning of the Second World War. In the pictured ring, one can recognize a transition from the refined Art Deco style to the, somewhat more robust, Retro style.

Abstract motives and geometrical forms are quite typical for the Art Deco period. Art Deco moved away from the soft pastels and organic forms of its style predecessor, Art Nouveau, and embraced influences from many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism, and Futurism.

Its popularity peaked in Europe during the Roaring Twenties and continued strongly in the United States through the 1930s. Although many design movements have political or philosophical roots or intentions, Art Deco was purely decorative.

Oops! Seems like Cupid made a mistake!

Oops!

Seems like Cupid made a mistake!

Click the picture to get to see this Antique sword brooch from solid pieces of diamond cut into hilt and blade shape.
Click the picture to see more from this antique brooch crafted from solid diamonds.
 

 
As these days are very busy for Cupid, we've heard from a reliable source that he ran out of arrows. Of course he can't disappoint anyone waiting for their one true love, so he's forced to switch to using his diamond sword!

This sword brooch is truly made out of no less material than two solid pieces of diamond for the blade and another solid piece of diamond for the hilt. The shimmer of the lozenge shaped facets on the diamond surface is almost too bright for the human eye to perceive. So when Cupid makes his hit through your lover's heart, it will be swift and almost as if nothing happened. But soon enough, the passion between you and your sweetheart will spark as radiant as the nine old European cut diamonds and the nine rose cut diamonds set in the silver pommel, the cross-guard, scabbard-belt and carrying-band. Tipped with a silver chape on a red gold back, Cupid's love sword will strike harder than any arrow. Are you ready to face the consequence of Cupid's new toy?

Apart from the alluring connotation we've given this jewel in these times filled with romance, it is a unique brooch almost fully manufactured out of diamond. Furthermore, these diamond parts are cut in a way we've never seen before. Another special diamond is encrusted in the center of the sword's cross-guard. Its yellow-greenish colour is extraordinary and very uncommon. Be aware of this dangerous brooch, because it might touch your heart as well.

Original Adin Recipe from the Middle Ages!


To those familiar with the Adin Weekly Herald it does not come as a surprise that we are also very much interested in cooking. It's not even a bold statement when we say that there is such a thing as "La Cuisine d'Adin". So it happened that when browsing through some antique cooking books from the Middle Ages we ran into some original Adin old school recipes. We thought it would be only fair to share this with you.
Enjoy!

 
 

Ye Olde Green Em'rald Pea Pottage Parure


Ye preparation timeth:
the timeth of milking three fully load'd goats


    Ye p'rtions:
  • -2 pints cleane water of meremen teardroplets
  • -12 oz geardtun pesoun of nightly picketh
  • -6 oz oynouns cuttlereyth by maedenchild
  • -1 handbred oile of whaelens lards rysel
  • -1/2 handbred saffroun pouder, couereth in 8 handbred water
  • -2 handbred light brown sugur from over the dunes
  • -1/2 handbred salt from the diepest seas
  • -1 em'rald parure of Adin antique jewell'rey (f'r example the parure as pictur'd)


Ye processeth:
Perrey of pesoun. Take pesoun and seeth hem fast, and couere hem, til thei berst; thenne take hem vp and cole hem thrugh a cloth. Take oynouns and mynce hem, and seeth in the same sewe, and oile therwith; cast therto sugur, salt, and safroun. Seeth hem wel therafter, and serue hem forth with an emerald parure.

Adin Fine Antique Jewellery Information: Precious Cross from the 17th Century

Adin Fine Antique Jewellery Information

Precious Cross from the 17th Century

Click the picture to get to see this 17th Century gold and diamond cross.
Click the picture to see more from this 17th Century diamond cross.
 
 
As if a guardian angel has bestowed upon this yellow gold cross with a value of 18K and possibly higher, this inestimable Iberian (Spain or Portugal) pendant and brooch with 23 old table rose cut diamonds withstands since the 17th century.

Except for the grand pear shaped suspension, the primary shape of a diamond ascending from an eight lobed dome embellished with mille grains repeats around the fully diamond-encrusted centre. The airy presence of this jewel is a merit of the curling wirework from which leaflets sprout in between the intersections.

Opal
A touch of history ...

 
The mysterious opal can evoke as many convictions and superstitions, as it can twinkle colours.

In the Arabic world, it was said that opals fall from the heavens during lightning storms. The Romans thought that this one gemstone beheld the power of all gemstones, because it displays all of their different colours at once. Still, it took only one novel from the 1800s by Sir Walter Scott to make people think of this stone as bad luck.

Although we wouldn’t dare to tell you what to believe, we do recommend this jewel to all fair ladies. It is namely accepted since medieval times that an opal has got the power to preserve the colour of blond hair. And let me punctuate that we are too respectful and respectable to make jokes about blondes.

The Whiplash

The Whiplash
A touch of history ...

 
Although Art Nouveau (1880-1914) took on distinctly localised tendencies as its geographic spread increase some general characteristics are indicative of the form. A description published in Pan magazine of Hermann Obrist's wall-hanging Cyclamen (1894) described it as "sudden violent curves generated by the crack of a whip", which became well known during the early spread of Art Nouveau.

Subsequently, not only did the work itself become better known as The Whiplash, but the term "whiplash" is frequently applied to the characteristic curves employed by Art Nouveau artists. Such decorative "whiplash" motifs, formed by dynamic, undulating, and flowing lines in a syncopated rhythm, are found throughout the architecture, painting, sculpture, and other forms of Art Nouveau design.
