What makes a good piece of antique jewelry, a good piece of antique jewelry?


The answer to this question is simple as can be. A good piece of antique jewelry should be a good style representative for the period it was made in, and it should have been made in that era too. A piece of jewelry made well but pretending to be older than the time it was actually made in, is just a reproduction.

What we show here is what we think is a good piece of future antique jewelry. Recognizable made somewhere around 1980 and made in the best jewelers traditions. Not only that, the center stone, a Colombian emerald of approx. 1.80 crt, is of a quality we never had in our collection. The cheering gem is beaming its intense green light in a way making anybody looking at it, immediately falling in love with it. We count ourselves lucky to have been able to get this beauty into our collection.

Adin Antique Jewelry presents: Catch a falling star...

Adin Antique Jewelry presents:

Catch a falling star...

Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket,
Never let it fade away.
Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket,
Save it for a rainy day.
(Lyrics by Lee Julien Pockriss and Paul J. Vance)
 

It could be very well possible that this brooch was made inspired by the passage of Halley’s comet in 1835. The passage of Halley inspired jewellers to make jewels in the shape of celestial bodies. This comet appears every 76 years. In 1705 Edmond Halley predicted, using Newton’s newly formulated laws of motion, that the comet seen in 1531, 1607, and 1682 would return in 1758 (which was, alas, after his death). The comet did indeed return as redicted and was later named in his honor.

A touch of history..... Antique Victorian diamond necklace

A touch of history.....

Antique Victorian diamond necklace

Click the picture to get to see this antique Victorian diamond necklace.

From the first glance it seems obvious that this frivolous red gold backed necklace fits just elegantly around the neck as a garland of six larger flowers alternating with six smaller ones. As three more flower pairs with dangling triplets drape from this blooming aura, an abundance of foil-set rose cut diamonds encrusted in silver shimmer illustriously. However, there's more to this intriguing piece than meets the eye...

Every antique jewel exudes history, but on top of that this enchanting necklace from around 1850 has also a modern story to tell about what jewellery can symbolize for a family.

We were honoured to purchase this jewel from the heirs of a jeweller, who crafted this unique necklace out of his personal collection of four pairs of antique Flemish earrings. To find one complete pair of this type of earrings is incredibly rare, let alone having four pairs. Furthermore, all of his daughters were truly shining on each of their wedding days while wearing their father's creation.

Although it isn't a custom of ours to offer redesigned/remodelled pieces, the way this jewel came to be is uttermost charming: initiated by a passion for antique jewellery, fueled by the vision and craftsmanship of a jeweller and truly ignited by the love of a father.

The Doves of Pliny

The Doves of Pliny

After the classical mosaic by Sosus of Pergamon dating back from the 2nd century BC

Click the picture to learn more about this magnificent cameo bracelet.
 


 
As three downey doves are sunbathing from the rim of a basin while one is gracefully drinking in this picturesque cameo, this 14K yellow gold bracelet from around 1850 splatters history all over our Garden of Adin.

This exact composition of four plumose pigeons is called "Doves of Pliny" or "Capitoline Doves", which refers to Pliny the Elder as he describes the original picture in a classical mosaic by Sosus of Pergamon dating back from the 2nd century BC. A revival of these archealogical wonders can be seen in the 1st half of the 19th century as it was very popular to reuse this motif in various artefacts. And yet, we have never seen a piece of such superb quality as the one we've got here. To emphasise its excellence, we invite you to closely lean over to the water in the vase and to notice the subtle reflection of the drinking dove. Apart from this meticulous elaboration, it is exactly this particular fragment by which Pliny was as equally mesmerised as we still are today. Only rarely, an artist manages to bring out this section of this iconic image.

Furthermore, this cameo has been engraved in the hardest part of the shell, which provides an even more realistic appearance as there are three different colour layers. Let alone the level of craftmanship needed to sculpt every detail a material as hard as stone, which we believe to take its origin from an Italian hand.

Of course, this piece of artistry can only be brought to its full spectacle in a harmonious mounting, which most probably must have come from an English goldsmith.

Jean Després, Master of French Art Deco and Modernistic Jewelry

Jean Després

Master of French Art Deco and Modernistic Jewelry

Jean Després

Jean Després (1889 - 1980) was an Art Deco jewelry designer whose name has come to stand for the most dynamic of 20th-century styles. This definitive celebration of his work will delight new admirers and seasoned connoisseurs alike.

Capturing the streamlined, modern aesthetic of the age of the machine and transforming it into objects of great beauty, Després has always been the jeweler of choice for informed collectors and insiders: Josephine Baker was an early admirer, and Andy Warhol’s collection was sold at Sotheby’s, New York in 1988.

As a young man, Després came to know avant-garde artists in Paris, including Léger, De Chirico and Braque. After the outbreak of war in 1914 he worked on the industrial design of aeroplanes, and he transferred this experience and inspiration into the jewelry business.

Després used geometric motifs in his designs, and in the 1930s embarked on a notable collaboration with the glass painter Étienne Cournault. Després went on to create a range of tableware and decorative objects in gold, silver and pewter, whose bold, industrial looks were uncompromisingly modern, yet always graceful and refined.
