Worker bees live only to be 6 till 8 weeks, but a queen bee can reach the age of 5 years! And because beekeepers want to know how old their queens are, they came up with an international followed code. They add a specific colour on the back of the queen to indicate the year the queen is marked. For years ending at 1 or 6, white or gray is used; for 2 or 7 yellow, for 3 or 8 red, for 4 or 9 green and for 5 or 0 they use blue.


Knowing this, when do you think in the 19th Century this Victorian queen bee brooch was made?

About the healing powers of coral.

(plus a disclaimer)

Click the picture to get to see this Charming peacock brooch enameled with a tail set with diamond sapphire emerald.
Click the picture to get to this antique high quality blood coral ear studs.
 


To many people coral symbolizes life and blood force energy and dark red coral is used for heating and stimulating the bloodstream.

Not that we necessarily promote or believe such claims, but we think they make for interesting conversation. We also would like to emphasize that buying a precious stone for any of such reasons is one's own responsibility and Adin can not be held accountable if the obtained result is not as desired.

Adin Antique Jewellery Presents: Some boring information

Some boring information about:

European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Click the picture to get to see this Late Victorian early Art Nouveau enameled thistle brooch with rose cut diamonds.
Click the picture to get to this thistle brooch.
 
Obliged by European law we have to send you the following message. And because it will take you some time to read it, we can use that time to enjoy some garden work in our Garden of Adin.

Being online since 1994 and selling online since December 1998 we have seen a lot of things coming (and going). The latest "thing" that has come is a European rule on privacy. This means that any end-user residing in the European Union will gain far greater control over what is done with his/her personal data.

As you perhaps might know we send out our Weekly Herald since 2000 and have built up a large follower base. In general, we do not keep the country of residence of the people on our mailing list, so we have no clue who lives in or outside of the European Union. Therefore this is a notification to all our followers and customers.

Of course we will not pass your email (or any other data) to any third party organisations. It will only be used to keep you informed about our latest aquisitions and website updates. And if you would like to know what information we have of you, please ask us for an overview of all of the personal data we have about you, and we'll send you that information. You have to count up to 10 working days for processing.

Again, this service is provided to all our followers and customers, not just members of the European Union.

Hoping to be at your service with this, do we remain,

Heaven on earth: The universe within your reach!

Heaven on earth:

The universe within your reach!

Click the picture to get to see this Très Belle Epoque diamond engagement ring with natural fancy color diamonds.
Click the picture to get to this Belle Epoque diamond ring.
 

This Belle Époque 18K bi-coloured gold ring is a force of attraction just as strong as that of a black hole in space but with a lot more brilliance and shimmer.

Two natural fancy yellow old brilliant cut diamonds with a mass of 1.20ct. are fusing together in the center of a constellation of 15 rose diamonds. With eight old brilliant cut diamonds alternating with more rose cut diamonds, it seems as if the boundary of this unique diamond universe keeps expanding all the way into the ring shank. When zooming in on the backside dimension with our telescope, we spot energetic sun swirls in yellow gold.

It's hard to believe that this treasure is manmade, while it's got all these wonders of nature combined in one piece of jewellery.

Heaven on earth: Cupido settling down in The Garden of Adin

Heaven on earth:

Cupido settling down in The Garden of Adin

Click the picture to get to see this most charming Large Antique French love and luck gold ring with cute little Amor.
Click the picture to get to this Antique French gold ring.
 
This adorable French yellow gold ring from around 1840 is a true testimony of how jewellery and declarations of love go hand in hand.

Cupido, the Roman god of love, is enshrined as a putti in an infinite halo of filigree lemniscates. On both sides of this marquise shaped top, four hearts build a universe where one plus one is one as they assemble into a four leaf clover. Between the shank's edges, filigree frills flutter as butterflies in a stomach. Clearly, this symbolic ring seales the marriage of love, luck and eternity.

Another important detail is that this piece was made to shout out loud this message of affection as the large ringsize implies it was used to wear on gloves for everyone to see. Nowadays, love doesn't always seem to be this simple, so our advise is: if they don't make them like they used to, you just buy antiques.

Beachcombing in the Garden of Adin:

Look what washed ashore!

Click the picture to get to see this most charming Late Victorian diamond engagment ring with beautiful untreated Burma sapphire.
Click the picture to get to this Victorian diamond ring with untreated Burma sapphire.
 


Look at what came ashore in the Garden of Adin: this charming Victorian 18K gold ring with a diamond cluster of 12 old brilliants surrounding a natural untreated Burma sapphire as deep blue as the seven seas combined.

No matter how strong the tidal waves of fashion, no matter how rough the waters of style, the value and allure of antique jewellery will never hit the reef. Not the earthly elements, nor the ravages of time can steer an archetype as this classic ring to the abyss.

If you want something lasting forever…

The Garden of Adin Presents: Art Nouveau brooch with Ginkgo biloba leaves

The Garden of Adin Presents:

Art Nouveau brooch with Ginkgo biloba leaves.

Click the picture to get to see this most charming Art Nouveau brooch with diamonds and Ginkgo biloba leaves.
Click the picture to get to this Art Nouveau brooch.
 


This precious French Art Nouveau brooch from around 1900 seems to be plucked straight out of one of the Elysian fields in the Garden of Adin.

An 18K yellow gold ginkgo branch sprouts upwards in so many layers that it almost breaks through its platinum framework of 54 rose cut diamonds. This vivid ambience is even more intensified with a hint of green colour on top of the warm yellow leaves.

What better way to celebrate life than with this symbol of longevity and endurance.

The Garden of Adin Presents: Art Nouveau brooch depicting lady love?

The Garden of Adin Presents:

Art Nouveau brooch depicting lady love?

Click the picture to get to see this Art Nouveau brooch signed Vernon depicting friendship between two women.
Click the picture to get to this "Vernon" signed Art Nouveau brooch.
 
As the established craftsman Vernon was, he must have constructed the idyllic scenery of this 18K yellow gold French Art Nouveau brooch fully out of symbols. On the background, we notice cypresses as a symbol of mourning. On the front, we believe to recognize a bush of edelweiss as a symbol of nobility, devotion and deep love. The window to this view is surrounded by chrysanthemum as a symbol of life, joy and optimism.

Or... this piece of jewellery could just be about two women enjoying each other's company while reading a book and enjoying the sensational sight. A sight with on the left side a majestic building from behind the intimate garden spot while on the right side cypresses leading up to a mountain.

But... if we connect this bare description with the flower connotations, suddenly we find ourselves in a story of memories to a lighthearted time, of everlasting friendship and of hope of a reunion.

True symbolism of an artist or just figments of a jewellery aficionado, this jewel is what it is: a vessel of emotion.
