A Modern Gilded Age

gilded age 1-banner

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.

Art Deco Star Sapphire Ring from Doyle & Doyle

Art Deco Elegance: Star Sapphire Engagement Ring of the Week

097374r star sapphire

The newest Engagement Ring of the Week is inspired by the fantastic exhibition, Elegance in an Age of Crisis: Fashions of the 1930s, currently on view at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s museum. The exhibition provides an overview of both women’s and men’s fashions of the 1930s, a pivotal decade that introduced the first truly modern clothing and accessories. Our 1930s Art Deco star sapphire and diamond ring, with its dramatic proportions and streamlined details, is a perfect compliment to the beautiful clothing on display.
