The Whiplash
A touch of history ...

 
Although Art Nouveau (1880-1914) took on distinctly localised tendencies as its geographic spread increase some general characteristics are indicative of the form. A description published in Pan magazine of Hermann Obrist's wall-hanging Cyclamen (1894) described it as "sudden violent curves generated by the crack of a whip", which became well known during the early spread of Art Nouveau.

Subsequently, not only did the work itself become better known as The Whiplash, but the term "whiplash" is frequently applied to the characteristic curves employed by Art Nouveau artists. Such decorative "whiplash" motifs, formed by dynamic, undulating, and flowing lines in a syncopated rhythm, are found throughout the architecture, painting, sculpture, and other forms of Art Nouveau design.

Dummy jewellery
A touch of history ...

 
At first, we thought we were seeing double but immediately we realised how exceptional this pair of rings really is. Not only have we got a most valuable platinum Estate ring with high class Colombian emeralds and diamonds, but also its dummy.

Up to the Fifties of the last century it was not uncommon for the happy few to have their most precious jewellery pieces reproduced in less expensive materials. These reproductions were called "dummies" and were specifically made to wear during flamboyant cruises and extensive journeys. Nowadays, such pairs are hardly being found as a couple anymore which makes of this valuable ring together with its pseudo-twin truly a unique collection.

Although the terms "dummy" and "copy" are no flattering words for any meticulously crafted jewel, make no mistake: it's only the original ring's counterpart that embodies the most precious adventures of its owner.

Adin Fine Antique Jewelry Information: 'Belle Époque' Jewelry

'Belle Époque' Jewelry

Belle Époque
A touch of history ...

 
As was aspired in the true existence of the Belle Époque period, this enchanting brooch from 1900 embodies the glorification of romanticism perfectly. The gleam of the parallel engravings -called guilloche- in the 18K warm yellow and possibly red gold background lures you straight from the platinum frame of 104 rose cut diamonds into its nostalgic enameled landscape. Over the sun-kissed meandering stream, you can drift off to a long forlorn ruin while passing spring blooming trees in green meadows.

With its ribbon and double twig wrapping, this marvelous jewel presents more than only the framework in which your past memories reflect next to your future dreams. The depth that is being created and how the scenery comes to life by the sun's reflection on the water show the craftsmanship of a master goldsmith ánd painter. In our trade, we treasure such an extraordinary craft, where the gold shines through the transparent and translucent enamel.

For more information, and see the actual shining of the scenery that we are so amazed by, please click the picture and find the full explanation and movie at the descriptive page of this fine jewel.

'Style Guirlande' Jewelry

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.
