The Garden of Adin presents: Another Classical Beauty

The Garden of Adin presents:

Another Classical Beauty

Click the picture to get to see this Renaissance brotherhood ring with two coat of arms behind transparant window.
Click the picture to get to this Renaissance gold ring from 1580.
 



There's a depth to this 18K yellow gold Renaissance ring as it must have gone to astonishing lengths to make it from the year 1580 to our present time. The identity of the initial owner is fused into four engravings embedded in red enamel in the top of the ring and safely sealed off presumably by a small slice of rock crystal. One coat of arms with the Christogram "IHS" and one with a monogram of a flowering stem both topped by the letters VMK must symbolise a brotherhood of great beliefs. We dare say even of great importance, as the ring is made out of 18K gold which elevates this ring to a higher level of noblesse.

Once, this ring may have been crafted as part of a person's history, but each person it touches here and now actually becomes part of the ring's own chronicle. What an extraordinary experience to be part of something before and beyond yourself.

Rings with a similar amount of allure and heritage are comprehensively described in the book "Rings - Jewelry of Power, Love and Loyalty" by Diana Scarisbrick, published by Thames & Hudson (ISBN 978-0-500-29112-2)

Click the picture to get to this Victorian gold brooch pendant.
 


Let this 18K yellow gold French Victorian brooch flood your senses with its harmonious neo-Rococo openwork interplay of rocailles and flowers. As two blossoming branches sprout from the top shell, a wave of curly C-shapes and swirly S-shapes ripples into a refined background flower frame arrangement.

In the meantime on the bottom of the brooch, an angel's head serves as the pillar for the tips of two C-elements across the draping leafs as they lift an old European diamond up to the piece its center. And lastly, the estuary of this abundant cascade of elegance narrows from the angel's collar into a dangling drop shaped saltwater pearl.

How can one not adore this eclecticism of the late Victorian period as it unites the land with the sea and the heavens - flowers with shells and angels - Belle Époque with neo-Rococo and neo-Classicism.

Going Cuckoo in The Garden of Adin?

Jewels here, Jewels there, Jewellery everywhere!

Click the picture to get to this Fifties necklace.
 


As lucky as we are to share our Garden of Adin with all customers dearest to our hearts, just as crazy we've become. With the garden fully in bloom and jewellery treasures sprouting here and there, we're starting to see transformed gold and gems everywhere! The sublime sun makes it all the easier for our madness for magnificence to spread from the floral fields into the sunlit sky.

Without any doubt, we've just spotted a pair of 18K yellow gold swallows flying high, promising more divine days as these to come. With their ruby eyes and white diamond tails glaring in the golden glow, they make a precious old European cut pear shaped diamond dangle from a Vintage yellow gold double necklace.

Can you see them too or are we the only ones going cuckoo?

The Garden of Adin and its miracles... A ring by His Jewel Highness JAR

The Garden of Adin and its miracles...

A ring by His Jewel Highness JAR

Click the picture to get to see this Signed JAR ring with 10+crt yellow sapphire.
Click the picture to get to this signed JAR ring.
 

This is something you wouldn't see much! A JAR jewel being offered in public. Normally owners of JAR jewelry cherish their jewel and hand it over to their offspring. And JAR himself, being extremely picky to who he would sell his pieces, also doesn't make it easier for the public to be able to obtain his pieces.

But here we have one of JAR’s earliest pieces, a wide yellow sapphire band ring in yellow gold made around 1980, echoing Bulgari’s design aesthetic from that period; where JAR use to work before he opened his own high jewellery boutique at the famous Place Vendôme in Paris.

JAR, which is short for Joel Arthur Rosenthal - was born in the Bronx, New York in 1943 under the name of Joel Arthur Rosenthal. The famous Paris-based jewellery designer JAR has been called "the Fabergé of our time" by designer Diane von Furstenberg. Or as David Bennett, chairman of Sotheby’s Geneva, puts it, "trust the hype, in terms of creativity, JAR is without peers." These insights from people who know what they are talking about helps explaining the beyond-normal prices that JAR pieces have brought at auctions in recent years.

After graduating from Harvard and after a short stay at Bulgari as salesman he spent most of his life in the French capital. In 1978 he opened his his own high jewellery boutique at the famous Place Vendôme. A boutique without display window nor opened at regular hours. With craftsmen in France and Switzerland, JAR produces less than 100 jewels a year. Each is one-of-a-kind and excecuted with Rosenthal's meticulous attention to detail using the finest-quality gems. And being a true diva, he reserves the right to refuse to sell an item if he doesn't think it would look good on the intended wearer.

Beekeeping in The Garden of Adin: Victorian Queen Bee Found!

Victorian Queen Bee Found!

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.
