    About Retro Jewelry

    Retro era in jewelry is dated to the 1930-40s. These ten years brought us a distinct look that has been highly admired through the years.

    ​During World War II the entire world was changing, and the jewelry world was under the influence as well. For instance, the bracelets were often designed by using the geometry of tank treads. In order to confront that brutality, in some of the pieces jewelers reinstated Victorian floral motifs in a romantic and even fragile way. That approach resulted in a vast variety of brooches. Butterflies, flowers, birds, and animals flooded the jewelry market during the retro era.

    ​Some of the materials — such as platinum — were hard to find and even forbidden to be sold. That’s why retro jewelry was often made of yellow, rose and even green gold alloys.

    Shortage of the gemstones forced jewelers to use semi-precious stones: citrine, aquamarine, amethyst. Pave technique allowed one to achieve a big look with little diamonds. Another sign of that time was enamel that was used to accentuate the stone or even replace it.

    About vintage brooches

    Since we started making our very first steps into the jewelry world, vintage brooches and pins have always been our favorite pieces.
    Wearing a brooch is a smart, unique way to express your personality and style. Pin it to your lapel, scarf, or a bag, and with just one brooch alone you can create the whole new fashion piece out of any garment or accessory. Some brooches could be worn as pendants, so you get two pieces in one. A brooch is an amazing jewel that is fun, elegant, and expressive at the same time.
