History of jewelery Evolution Of Modern Jewelry, A Look At History By: Dennis Wilson Jewelry has always been a part of human culture and evolution. It has complemented and shaped our ideas of beauty, desire, possession and fashion. Traces of modern jewelry can be traced back to prehistoric times but to keep everything in perspective, here is a brief analysis of jewelry and the changes it has incurred starting from the Renaissance. Beth Bernstein writes The Renaissance (1300-1600) The Renaissance period was a time of rebirth and the renewal of classical mythological figures. Opulent, colourful and intricately enamelled jewellery took on a new-found ornamentality. Pieces were elaborate and three dimensional, with enamel work covering both sides of a piece, and meticulously detailed backs adding to a jewel’s splendour. Emphasis was placed on religion in pictorial motifs, and gems were chosen for their mystical properties as well as their vibrant colours. Towards the second half of the period, new cutting techniques permitted more gemstone shapes, while the opening of new trade routes offered more diversity in gems and pearls, gold and silver. Devotional jewels, and a lively take on symbolism, also had an effect on the jewels of the day, with arabesque motifs making their way on to everything from chains to rings. At the close of the 15th century, wealth had trickled down to the middle classes in Italy, and the fashion of the day spread throughout Europe, which had a profound effect on England. The jewels of what was known as the English Renaissance arrived somewhat later than those of the Italian Renaissance. The reign of Queen Elizabeth I (1558-1603) was known as the golden age in English history. The Queen possessed a great passion for jewellery. She favoured baroque pearls, vibrant gemstones and certain allegorical animals, which set the fashions of her court as well as the upper class in England. It was also a time of portrait miniatures. These pendants were crafted into intricately carved cameo portraits or exquisitely painted miniatures. During this period, three-dimensional pendants, intricately designed, ultra-long chains and baroque pearl jewellery reigned. Pendants included all types of animals, ships and cupids, as well as a host of other symbolic motifs, which were often enamelled and highly detailed. Chains were exquisitely crafted, with foliate motifs and enamel on both sides of the patterned links. Since collars were worn high and there was minimal bare skin on show, jewels were designed to stand out from the rich fabrics, worn either over the collars, in the hair, or sewn into dresses. Signet, posey and high quatrefoil stone rings were popular also, often worn on every finger. The abundance of jewellery – ropes of pearls, pendants and multiple rings – is well documented in portraits from the time. Georgian (1714-1830) With the arrival of the Georgian period, jewels returned to being worn primarily by nobility and the upper crust of society. The pieces of this era were typified by the Rococo style, with flourishes of bow, foliate and organic motifs, and silver fused to yellow gold. Jewellery was often created in suites or parures consisting of several matching pieces that could also be taken apart and worn in different ways. Vividly coloured stones in flat and rose cuts were typical of the time, and jewellers made them even more lively by closing and foiling the backs of the gems to mask any imperfections that were the result of early cutting techniques. Sentimental pieces were also popular in the Georgian period, including portrait and lover’s eye miniatures, posey rings with poetic verse engraved into the gold band and acrostic jewellery – lockets, rings and bracelets in which the first letter of the gemstones spelled out words of affection such as “Regard” and “Dearest”. Victorian (1837-1901) Spanning three important periods, the Victorian era witnessed the heightened popularity of these sentimental love tokens. The Romantic Period covers the earlier years, when Queen Victoria married her Prince. Sentimental motifs continued to dominate: hearts, lover’s knots, flowers, bows, crescent moons and serpents. In fact, Queen Victoria wore a snake engagement ring, signifying enduring love. This era also signified major change thanks to the Industrial Revolution and the discovery of the diamond mines in South Africa. The Grand Period encompassed the two decades when the Queen mourned the death of Prince Albert. Dark, sombre Whitby jet, onyx and deep garnets came into vogue, with mourning and memorial jewels comprising personalised rings and lockets. Revival Etruscan, Greek and Renaissance influences were also fashionable. The middle classes of the time were also able to wear fine jewels and travel, and the Grand Tour, which included Italy, offered “souvenirs” that were pictorials of the great sites and cities in micro mosaics and shell cameos. The later Aesthetic Period reflected a return to lightheartedness, with symbols of luck, good fortune and naturalistic forms. Art Nouveau (1880-1910) The Art Nouveau period represented a revolt against the industrial age in pure artistic expression, with the rebellious use of precious and non-precious metals, combined with unusual coloured gemstones in depictions of nature – primarily insects, birds and floral motifs. Sensual and ethereal versions of the female form were also a recurring theme. Intricately detailed pieces displayed bold uses of colour, daring materials and different types of enamelling, such as plique-à-jour, in groundbreaking designs. The Art Nouveau movement began in France and influenced all of Europe and the United States, while overlapping with other periods. Jewellery pioneers of the era included Rene Laliqué, Falize, Maison Vever, Georges Fouquet, and Tiffany & Co. Edwardian and Belle Époque (1901-1915) The shortest period in the history of antique jewellery reflected the elegance of King Edward VII. French Rococo came back into style, with similar motifs found in Georgian jewellery but this time with a delicate, lighter and airier hand. Platinum was introduced and not only influenced new settings for diamonds but revolutionised the jewellery industry throughout Europe and the US. The “garland” style of flowers and leaves, and millegrain – pierced and engraved metals – gave the jewellery of this period the appearance of openwork lace. Old mine-cut diamonds and natural pearls offered a monochromatic white look for earrings, brooches and necklaces. Art Deco (1920-1939) The Art Deco era reached its height in 1925 after the Decorative Arts Exhibition in Paris, which coincided with women gaining the right to vote in America. Industrial, linear and sleek, Art Deco captured this brave new world, with streamlined forms, in white diamond and platinum, inspired by speed and skyscrapers. Influences from a global mix of cultures, including Asia, Africa and Egypt, softened the geometric lines with stylised floral motifs and carved cabochons. Vibrant rubies and sapphires as well as onyx, jade, lapis lazuli and frosted quartz contrasted against diamonds and produced some of the most influential looks, which continue to inspire contemporary designers. Cartier, René Boivin, Raymond Templier and Tiffany & Co. were just a few of the prevailing jewellers. Retro (1939-1950) The Retro period came about due to World War II, when platinum and gems were scarce. Jewellers turned to lower-carat gold and semi-precious or synthetic stones, and rose and yellow gold took on the feel of fabrics. After the war, more fluid versions of the clean lines of Art Deco made a comeback, and brooches were all the rage. Gems such as aquamarine, citrine and amethyst became fashionable in large stone antique rings. The mid-20th century – dating from the 1950s through to the 1970s – offered up the “cocktail party” as a stylish event throughout the US, and jewellery became more extravagant. Three-dimensional, whimsical and stylised animals set with vivid semi-precious stones were also popular, characterised by leopards and panthers from Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels’ winged creatures, and Bulgari’s Serpenti jewels. These houses, as well as Boucheron, continued to shake up their earlier visions with new innovations, while emerging designers such as Paul Flato, Fulco di Verdura, David Webb, Jean Schlumberger and Elsa Peretti redefined vintage jewellery for a new generation. For the past 40 years, jewellery has undergone huge changes in techniques, form and function. Many movements and new innovations have occurred, but the one that has stuck is that of individuality and personalisation. It is now fashionable to mix metals, wear different styles of jewellery through the ages together, layer seven necklaces and go back to wearing those ancient pieces for protection, spirituality and symbolic meaning – but always as a form of adornment.

Top 5 Benefits Of Online Shopping
Another reason is because you can easily browse through dozens of different websites to find the best price. You can do the same at a mall, but it would take about an hour or longer. You also may not be taxed because most ecommerce stores won’t tax you unless they are stationed in your state.
If you work irregular hours or are very busy, then you probably don’t have the time to visit the store. Shopping online allows you to buy things without hurting your schedule.
Shopping online allows you to find many products that you wouldn’t be able to find in a physical store. You can also buy products that may not logically go together like candy canes and quilts.
These tactics are not as pronounced with online stores. This means that you won’t feel the pressure to buy other things.
Shopping online gives you privacy because you won’t have people looking at you while you shop. Not only that, but the receipts are usually made so that no one will know what you bought.
Renita G is a constant online shopper. Over the years, with the development in technology, she has determined that these are the top 5 benefits of online shopping.
