The original Frog Prince bracelet !


Many of us know the fairy tale of the princess kissing a frog, who than magically transformed into a handsome prince.

For a long time the existence of an image capturing the moment of their first encounter has been a source of dispute between leading historians around the world. It's only shortly that Mr. Elkan Wijnberg, chief conservator of the Adin Antique Jewelry Museum of Fairy Tale Artifacts, revealed that the museum had found the original picture! Even more (and totally coincidentally!) the bracelet the princess is wearing on the picture happens to be in Adin's museum collection.

Variation to the theme 'tennis bracelet'

Variation to the theme 'tennis bracelet'

Estate diamond tennis bracelet
Click the picture to get to this estate diamond tennis bracelet.
 
 

Normally a tennis bracelet is an in-line diamond bracelet or a bracelet that that features a symmetrical pattern of diamonds. Tennis bracelets exist much longer then the term used for them.

In 1987 Chris Evert, the former World No. 1 woman tennis player, was playing in the U.S. Open. She was wearing an elegant, light in-line diamond bracelet, which accidentally broke and the match was interrupted to allow Chris to recover her precious diamonds. The "tennis bracelet" incident sparked a new name for the item and sparked a huge jewelry trend.

Tennis bracelets continued to be worn by various tennis stars like Serena Williams and Gabriela Sabatini, and Diana Kerrison. Before this, they were just called rivière- or inline bracelets.

(a small history lesson)

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.
