In a conversation with one of our buyers recently, he asked me what was the hot trend in Delaware. I rattled off all the catagories that came to mind. His next questions took me by surprise ! Delaware doesn't like one of a kind fashion Jewewlry? I thought to myself .....

You would be surprised to know that the term 'Estate jewelry' does not just refer to jewelry that has come from an estate, but includes wonderful pieces that have been previously owned and, as we like to say, "previously loved." Timeless, highly fashionable and oh-so-individual, the luxurious world of Estate jewelry is filled with legends and lore,. Think of the Hope diamond and the legendary lovers, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Moving back in time, the ancient Romans thought that pearls were created when drops of rain permeated the layers of the oysters. Emeralds were considered to have healing powers in the past. The ancient Persians believed that the Earth rested on a sapphire, and the sky was blue due to a reflection from that sapphire. Another legend states that ancient warriors, before going into battle, used to implant small ruby chips under their skin for valor.

The different eras of vintage jewelry include.......
Art Deco Era: 1920-1935
As Impressionist and Modern artists collided, Art Deco jewelers took inspiration with medleys of colored, jumbled gemstones that are interspersed with striking color combinations like turquoise and sapphire or coral and diamonds.
C. 1930 Vintage Green Jade and Seed Pearl Ring With Enamel in 14kt Yellow Gold. Size 7

Retro Era: 1935-1950
Romance and femininity are the perfect escapes from harsh realities of a world in conflict. Captured in romantic movies on-screen, or in real life off-screen romances such as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor (and just think of the Duchess's jewelry!), charm, elegance and glamour reign supreme.

Edwardian Era: 1901-1914 Edwardian jewelry, clothing and fashions reflect this era's mood of frivolity with light, decorative layers. The finest Edwardian jewelry mirrors the effect with filigree and a 'white-on-white' look along with millegrain detailing.
C. 1910 Vintage 2.00 ct. t.w. Diamond Filigree Necklace in Platinum. 16"
Victorian Era: 1837-1901
