In a recent article written by David Brough for Reuters, Mr Brough is lending a helping hand to the antique jewelry trade. Although all help is welcome, we at Adin think that Mr Brough is giving the wrong reasons for buying antique jewelry.

He quotes Carol Woolton, Jewellery Editor of British Vogue, a top fashion and lifestyle magazine "There are a lot of people now with jewels in their safes for a rainy day." And, he further declares: "Rare vintage jewels are increasingly popular investments to protect against rising inflation and economic uncertainty, and Art Deco designs are commanding the most attention from collectors."

It is our opinion however, that one should not buy antique jewelry as an investment but just for the reason that one likes a particular piece of antique jewelry and wants and can spend the required amount of money for it. That, and only that, should be the most important reason to buy jewelry, antique or new.

Wear a piece of vintage jewelry, and you're guaranteed to receive compliments and even more, vintage jewelry gives the wearer an aura of individuality and confidence. The timeless, evocative look of antique and vintage jewelry makes a distinctive addition to every woman's jewelry wardrobe.

We at Adin try to be more than just dealers in antique and vintage jewelry. We try to share our love, passion and knowledge on antique jewelry with many around. It is from this perspective that we will send you in the coming months short impressions of different significant styles from the past centuries. This time we will dive into an era that has not been too long ago: Art Deco

The Art Deco style is a very famous and popular art movement that had a lot influence in the world of jewelry. Art Deco was introduced in the 1920s as protest against the Art Nouveau style. Art Deco ended in the 1930s. The style emphasized a very abstract design with geometric patterns and as most favorite colors: black (onyx), blue (sapphire), green (emerald), white (diamond) and red (coral).
The baguette and emerald-cuts, which had been developed in the nineteenth century, where very popular in the 1920s because they blended so much with the geometrical lines of the Art Deco style. Interested in reading more about Art Deco?
