bracelet from the 1930's highlights a superlative candy apple green 8.00 carat jadeite cabochon. The bracelet also consists of silky strands of natural seed pearls, accented by small, calibrated sapphires and diamonds

These platinum earrings feature sparkling European cut diamonds bezel set and dropped from a fine knife wire inside a pear shape set with onyx calibre which drops gracefully from a hexagonal stud further set with onyx and a European cut diamond.1209863109_50-1-2349.jpg
An emerald cut sapphire weighing approximately 1.75 carat is presented in this elaborate Art Deco platinum bar pin with four rows of tiny seed pearls divided by a line of calibre cut, square synthetic sapphires (original to the piece); circa 1920.

THere is such a distinct flavor to art deco pieces. And with Art deco pieces, Calibrated stones are critical. I want to say there is a sense of masculinity in them. Pieces I fancy are often structured and angular in appearance. If you observe closely, these pieces require a very trained eye to create the tiny miligrain( tiny dots or grains) around the setting. Enjoy!
