Damage: Age appropriate wear. This listing is for the item only. This was very true due to the gorgeous designs that came out of this period. This era focused on women and the beauty of nature and the pieces were often large. Enamel was a common material used in Art Nouveau jewelry as the period was more about the importance of the design over the materials used to create it. The Art Nouveau period happened before the start of the first world war, when mass manufacturing took over production of many products, including some jewelry. Etruscan revival jewelry swept into popularity in the early 1800s with the Victorian era discovery of Etruscan tombs just outside of Rome in Italy. These archaeological digs unearthed beautiful golden jewelry that had been meticulously ornamented with tiny gold beads, featuring flowing geometric shapes, celestial motifs, and a plethora of sacred and Greco-Roman mythological figures. The techniques of repouss√©, filigree, and granulation are all attributed to the Etruscans. Jewelers all over the world avidly began to attempt to replicate these ancient techniques, changing the way fine jewelry was made for many years. 800 silver, also called Coin Silver, is made out of silver coins used in European countries pre-1940. During this time period, it was easier for jewelers and silversmiths to use coins that were already guaranteed at a certain purity, than using another form of silver and having to guess at the purity level. Filigree metal working is a delicate form of art has been found as early as 3,000 BC in Mesopotamia. It was perfected by the Phoenicians and Etruscan civilizations between the 6th and 3rd centuries BC. It involves stamping out a design in metal and hand bending and twirling threads, combined with tiny beads, until a final motif emerges. It is reminiscent of lace and considered one of the most difficult metal working processes. Filigree is still a very popular technique in India and Asia. Carnelian is a beautiful form of chalcedony gemstone that has been used to create jewelry for nearly 5000 years. It is an opaque-looking stone that ranges in red hues from pale orange to an intense, almost black blood red. Called the stone of kings, carnelian was well suited to carving, and would often be used in seal rings by the great ancient civilizations. Onyx is formed of bands of chalcedony in alternating colors. It is cryptocrystalline, consisting of fine intergrowths of silica minerals. Its bands are parallel to one another, as opposed to the more chaotic banding that often occurs in agates. It is translucent to opaque and comes in a wide range of colors including, white, yellow, red, brown, green, and black. We do not undervalue packages for international customers as it is illegal.
