Our rotating collection spans many eras from Victorian jewelry that highlights floral motifs, birds and romantic hearts to slithering snakes, beetles and bugs. Edwardian jewelry reflects extravagant forms that showcased light, delicate and airy designs. The Art Nouveau era produced exceptional enameled, plique-a-jour and basse-taille pieces. The Art Deco era shifted away from flowing designs and colors to bold, bright and structured pieces including Egyptian Revival jewelry that focused on motifs such as scarabs, falcons and the sphinx. The retro era of the 1940’s showcases bright and beautiful cocktail rings with striking combinations of gemstones.
