A gorgeous drop featuring four exceptional Curio finds, focusing on summer colors and functionality! When in London, one must always spend time in gardens, and this drop pays homage to that sentiment.
This first featured find is a bold Carved Amethyst Plum Ring in 14k. In the late 1800s, designers, thinkers, writers, and artists joined forces in an effort to return to the days of craftsmanship. Handmade designs inspired by nature, and simple, straightforward construction techniques are thus hallmarks of Arts and Crafts jewelry. This protest resulted in Arts and Crafts jewelry pieces that are truly one-of-a-kind works of art. In fact, no two Arts and Crafts earrings, necklaces, pins, rings, pendants, or brooches are ever the same, which is one of the characteristics that makes them so attractive. This stunning ring features a sizable plum amethyst in the center, beautifully carved, adding character to an already bold ring.
Next up we have a Delicious Onyx Watch Key in 9k. The Georgian era was a period during which there were significant developments in jewelry and marked the beginning of many mass-production methods. The jewelry of this era was innovative and distinctive. This stunning watch key features a "C" initial in gothic font and boasts onyx, a symbol of protection and remembrance.
Third on our list for this week's special finds is a Glorious 14k Yellow Gold Snake Ring. Sleek and fine, this shifting garnet will pull you into her scarlet velvet pool. The sharp bezel is remarkable, also a conversion. The Victorians associated the snake motif with eternal love. The first Queen to be regularly seen out and about, Victoria’s style was emulated throughout the world and you can still find beautiful antique snake jewelry today. This vintage example boasts a 14k yellow gold snake with .22ct of emeralds in her head, with a gorgeous textured body.
