A Modern Gilded Age

This week, we’re celebrating the opulence of the Gilded Age, which ran from the 1870s to the 1910s. Like last week’s Art Deco post, we’re inspired by a museum exhibition, “Gilded New York”, currently on display at the Museum of the City of New York (MCNY). Many of our most beautiful antique jewels were made at this time, and we’ve pulled together our favorites into The Gilded Age collection.

However, both are soft stones, especially opals, and we don’t recommend them for hard, everyday wear.

Celebrate October with Dazzling Opal and Tourmaline

October Birthstone

October’s birthstones are two of the most versatile gemstones. Prized for their range of colors, opal and tourmaline have inspired jewelers, poets, and artists. Shakespeare called opal “the queen of gems” and Pliny the Elder wrote that within its depths, you could see “the living fire of the ruby, the glorious purple of the amethyst, the sea green of the emerald, all glittering together in an incredible mixture of light.” Opal’s unique play of color is caused by the way silica combines with water in the cavities of ancient rock formations.

Paris at spring and Canal Saint Martin

Paris: The Star of our Spring-time City Fantasies

Continuing our celebration of the culture and style of our favorite Spring-time cities, we take a fresh look at that oft romanticized metropolitan, Paris, through one of it’s most locally beloved arrondissements, the 10th, or Canal Saint-Martin. Fans of contemporary French cinema will recognize the colorful concrete banks of this canal, originally commissioned by Napoleon […]
