Jewellery in Its Most Beautiful Variations
Jewellery comes in many different shapes and variations. Each jewellery piece is unique and has its special charm. Neck jewellery is a particularly important fashion accessory because it catches the eye at first glance. With an elegant necklace or a sparkling chain, you will always leave a good first impression. Ear jewellery is smaller but no less important. Earrings, ear pendants or stud earrings round off any look in a discreet way. This also applies to arm jewellery such as bangles or bracelets. Additionally, brooches, which can be attached to the lapel but also the sleeve, headpiece, or bag, can set stylish accents. Finally, jewellery sets simplify the selection of jewellery pieces because necklaces, arm and ear jewellery are already perfectly matched. In addition to these classics of jewellery art, you will find jewellery boxes, wristwatches and men's jewellery in our collection.
Jewellery Art, Made from Precious Materials
The most sought-after materials for jewellery making are precious metals such as gold, silver or diamonds and precious stones. Nevertheless, designers can ultimately give free rein to their creativity in the choice of materials. The first jewellery was produced from materials that were found in nature. These included shells, pearls, bones, and ivory. The early materials also included precious stones, which were already used in jewellery making in antiquity. Over the centuries, many other materials were added to the art of jewellery, such as aluminium, steel, leather, glass, or plastics.
Jewellery From Different Epochs and Cultures
Art and jewellery have always been closely connected. When the art styles changed, they often influenced the design of contemporary jewellery. The best example of this is the jewellery from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods in the 20th century, in which many design elements were adopted from the fine arts. But other epochs are also known for their imposing jewellery style, for example, the Baroque and the Rococo. Also in different cultures, the arts and crafts produced elegant jewellery, for example, in regions such as Africa, Egypt, Asia, Greece and North and South America.
