About Art Deco jewelry
Art Deco jewelry has remained highly appreciated since its appearance in 1920s — the time also knows as Jazz Age. The style continuously remains popular until today. What’s the secret of the Art Deco success?
First comes the design itself. Neat geometrical shapes embodied in platinum makes a refined jewelry piece look very appealing. Simple yet powerful, straight lines along with precise workmanship create a striking impression. Add to that a pear or marquise cut gemstone and you won’t be able to forget that perfect Art Deco piece.
Platinum, being the most popular material during Art Deco era, also contributed to the period jewelry popularity. At that time the Merensky-Riff, the world’s largest platinum deposit, was discovered in South Africa. And platinum’s title as the main Art Deco metal was fully established.
Vintage Art Deco engagement rings are always in high demand. They have a perfectly balanced geometry and often feature Old European and cushion cut diamonds. Black and white combos, such as diamond and black onyx or black enamel create a dramatic effect.

About estate jewelry
Buying jewelry online might be challenging. The quality of the making has not gotten better over the time while the design is getting more and more generic. Add ever rising prices and you could end up with not finding anything suitable. To purchase a high-quality jewelry piece for an obtainable price consider buying estate items.
- Quality vs Quantity
Estate pieces mostly belong to the times when jewels were handmade and not mass produced. There were simply less jewelry makers at that time and they cared about their reputation. Opposed to the current fast fashion approach, life pace was in general slower. That allowed makers to take more time to craft truly quality pieces.
- Fair-Priced vs Overpriced
Designer pieces aka signed pieces can cost multiple times more than their unsigned equivalents. We pay not only for an item itself but also for the brand advertising campaigns and all the buzz the name is creating. Prices for estate jewelry form differently and mostly depend on the cost paid by a seller. A pre-owned Bulgari ring and a brand-new Bulgari ring have a very appealing price difference. Ask your local jewelry store about a retail price of the desired piece and you’d be pleasantly surprised.
- True value vs Seasonal rush
Pre-owned jewelry retains its value. Over the time it gets rare and more expensive. Think purchasing a new car that loses its value right after you left your dealer versus buying a vintage vehicle.
