Style Guirlande
A touch of history ...

 
The Belle Époque Style is also called 'Style Guirlande' (French) or in plain English: 'Garland Style'. In this era, delicacy was the desired fashion through the use of white metals and white stones shaped in a garland design. Motifs of ribbons and bows, leafs and flowers predominated in symmetrical curvy openwork shapes according to the example of renaissance garland paintings and of the frothiness of the 18th-century rococo patterns.

As a truly extraordinary example from its era, this antique platinum pendant glistens through the 76 diamonds encrusted in the joyfully arranged leafs. From the upper triple diamond top, two leaflets sprout downwards through both nooses of the central bow from which two ribbons drape over the two twigs. The bow’s heart suspends a dangling old European cut diamond, which chaperones your gaze to two arching garland branches. At the point where they meet, another old European cut diamond sways from a pair of leaflets.

This charming scenery swoops anyone to moments of merry and bliss. For more information, please click the picture and find the full explanation at the descriptive page of this fine jewel.

Adin Fine Antique Jewelry Information: A ring 400 years old and still burning from love!

Adin Fine Antique Jewelry Information

True love lasts forever!

(400 years old and still very wearable)

Love Symbolism
A touch of history ...

 
Dating back from around 1630, this 18K yellow gold ring -called a Claddagh ring or Fede ring- is truly a present from history and tales. Two hands offer friendship by reaching out a heart which is bulging -or better bursting- from love through the gleam of a foil-set rose cut diamond. To seal this bond with loyalty, a crown with three rose cut diamonds in a foilsetting guides the heart vertically around your finger. Looking at the untouched black enamel on the sleeves behind the gold hands, this precious jewel proves to stand the test of time. As should the union between the two loved ones who share this treasure.

To find a more genuine relic is nearly impossible as it seems that the GIA museum, Carlsbad, USA, has got one other example of a Claddagh ring in this specific design from the 17th century. Having this jewellery piece in your possession, it is definitely more of an honour than a hazard to preserve and even wear this rare fragment of history.

An almost identical item from a private collection can be found in the book titled “Rings: Jewelry of power, love and loyalty” by Diana Scarisbrick, Thames & Hudson Ltd London 2007, and in the book titled “Rings: Symbols of wealth, power and affection” also by Diana Scarisbrick, Thames and Hudson Ltd London 1993.

The astonishing resemblance between the catalogued rings and this exceptional ring confirms once more the remarkable age of this ring and the miracle of its well-guarded travel through time.

A Parure
A touch of history ...

 
Here we have what we call in our trade a "parure". A parure is a matching set of jewellery, meant to be worn together. This particular set of earrings and necklace with a pendant changeable into an independent piece truly seems to be bejewelled by a force of nature, which will make you as enticing as a divine nymph.

With a swirl of 18K yellow gold branches, this exuberant Dutch Estate necklace alights its azure-set 275 brilliant cut diamonds of a total of over 34 carats sprouting from an 18K white gold bloom, flower bud and leaf veins effortlessly around your neck.

Not to mention the two petal-shaped earclips with each 61 brilliants in an overall recurring pattern of horizontal and vertical pierced white gold millegrain rims, that are meant to be whisked to your ears by a spring breeze.

Especially to fit your every need, the tremendous floret of this striking set from 1990 can be picked from its sprig to wear it as a brooch or separately as a pendant on a twisted silk cord in the colour of your choice. The possibility not to just flaunt your exquisite style but also to have fun with dressing up and anticipating your moment of shine is offered by the assortment of the eight silk strings, each in a different colour: there's black, silver, metallic, navy blue, apple green, cinnamon and chocolate brown to play with.

Symbolism in Antique Jewelry.

Click the picture to read about this early Victorian love brooch/pendant.
 
 

Symbolism
A touch of history ...

 
This Early-Victorian bi-colour gold-backed pendant from 1830 embodies a treasure of symbols through a deep pink garnet heart, a silver-topped bow, snake, cross and anchor encrusted with three European cut diamonds and with a total of 86 rose cut diamonds set in foil.

While the ruby-eyed snake wraps around the cross, its head emerges to the centre of the garnet and emphasizes the opulent heart-shape. This meaningful composition reveals the snake's role of protection, wisdom, hope and fertility when it comes to matters of the heart from deep within the garnet's core. This gemstone of love is topped by a cross which extends from behind the garnet into an anchor, resulting in an Anchored cross or also called a Mariner's cross. Generally signifying hope, this bejeweled imagery contributes even more to the message of promise and faith in this jewel.

To complete the message of hope and tenderness, the above-mentioned piece with a 14K yellow gold back dangles from an adorable bow-knot with an 18K red gold back which literally depicts the strong bond of love. This bow particulalry grants you the possiblity to even wear this extraordinary jewellery piece as a brooch.

It couldn't be more clear from the craftsmanship and the total design that this jewel doesn't just speak of promises and fairytales, but it truly achieves to convey the message of love.

New Species of Dragonfly Discovered!

Adin, Antwerp Belgium - The newfound species is about 1.3 inches (3.4 cm) long. It lives close to mountain streams in a remote region in The Garden of Adin. So far, only gold specimens are known; with an opal body, pearl spots and ruby eyes.

The species is named Stultitia Elkanti, in honor of Prof. Elkan Wijnberg, Chief biologist at the Garden of Adin. “Having a newly discovered animal or plant species named after oneself is one of the most beautiful awards for a biologist,” Prof. Wijnberg commented. “I’m extraordinarily honored, for sure, but there are a lot of other dragonfly researchers who would have deserved this award before me.”

Research describing the new species is published online in the Adin Weekly Herald.

ANTWERP, Belgium (AAJ) - They call Elkan Wijnberg 'the dream expert'. A veteran of over thirthy Antique Jewelry Games, the experienced official is working on the biggest challenge of his career: managing the decoration of the athletes sleeping facilities.

“With the addition of our new antique jewelry frame we’re making it even easier for the athletes to relax.” says Wijnberg, who formerly served as gardener in The Garden of Adin. “Although a recent study showed that most of the people sleep with their eyes closed, we still want to bring that extra touch to the quality of their night rest."
