A picture is worth a thousand words

(a small history lesson)

Click the picture to get to this antique ring with old mine diamonds and Verneuil ruby.
 
 

It is believed that in 1911, around the period that this ring was made, the expression "Use a picture. It's worth a thousand words." was used for the first time. It appeared in an article in the New York newspaper The Post-Standard quoting newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane discussing journalism and publicity.

Baroque rose cut diamond ear jewels, about 350 years old!

Baroque rose cut diamond ear jewels

About 350 years old!

Top notch Baroque rose cut diamond ear jewels antique earrings
Click here to read all about this top notch Baroque rose cut diamond ear jewels.
 



Three graduating teardrop shaped high domed rose cut diamonds surmounted by three rose cut diamonds diamonds in a V-shape with additional scrolling, attached to a larger round high domed rose cut diamond. The diamonds are set in a closed silver setting and the edges are decorated with a small lobed border. The pair of earrings is finished with a gold backing, a popular method for this time as the silver made sure the natural sparkle of the diamond is optimized and the gold layer prevents the silver tarnishing the skin. This particular gold backing is rather special because a second decorative border of delicate striations is added.

The additional scrolling on the connecting part, the height of the rose cut diamonds and the double layer of decorative applications to the earrings ensure us that only the highest level of materials and craftsmanship were used in fashioning this pair of earrings. That they stood the test of time in such a good condition is a testimony to this level of excellence.

Victorian gold bracelet with Japanese sceneries in damascene technique

Victorian gold bracelet

with Japanese sceneries in damascene technique

High quality gold Victorian bracelet in damascene or zougan or shakudo technique
Click here to read all about this Victorian damascene bracelet.
 
 

First thing noticeable of this magnificent bracelet is the high quality craftsmanship needed to craft the lovely sceneries of each link. Eight little pieces of art, each telling their own story in low relief in various colors of gold.

We have a strong feeling that these scenes refer to one or more (Japanese?) stories or fairy tales, but we were unable to trace back more information on it.

The technique used here is called "Damascening", "zougan" or "shakudo" which is the art of inlaying different metals into one another. The technique has a long history in Japan, where it was used to decorate sword fittings.

Artistic daydreams with antique jewelry from The Garden of Adin

A bee or not a bee...

That's the question!

Antique insect brooch gold with rubies and pearls bejeweled bumble bee
Click here to read all about this gold antique insect brooch.
 



This Victorian insect brooch we believe to be representing a bumble bee. Made in, most probably, Belgium around 1880. Bees are a symbol for diligence and indefatigable effort. Set with Verneuil rubies and half seed pearls this brooch makes a cute shoulder decoration.

Antique Jewelry Present Suggestions (per type of jewelry and per price)

Antique Jewelry Present Suggestions

(per type of jewelry and per price)


Dear fellow antique and estate jewelry afficionado,

First of all, we are in the midst of changing our pictures from black background to white background so our excuses if our mailing seems to be a bit messy.

Eleven months a year we try to amuse you with a weekly cute antique jewelry related mail. However, this time of the year we take the liberty of sending you some mails without any special picture or back-ground information on symbolism, style or era. There will be just a list of present suggestions.
Please don't worry, these few mails will be as much "hard marketing" as you can expect from us in a whole year. Rest assured that it will take another year before we will start bragging again about all those beautiful pieces of antique and estate jewelry that can be bought online from us and that it will take only about 2 or 3 working days from the moment of buying to the moment it is delivered at your doorstep.

This time we present you another convienient manner of browsing through our collection! Did you you know that on our site you can select by sort of jewelry and price? Have fun!
Ah! And one more good thing..... Shipping is free!


antiqually yours,
The Adin team
