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 the production of many products, including some jewelry. Princess Harem rings were very special rings made during the Art Nouveau & Art Deco eras that usually were made with a high rise mounting piece and multiple gemstones. The rings were made with only the best materials and metals, as they were reserved for their namesake - royalty such as Princesses or other high-ranking members of society. For this reason, these gorgeous rings came with an extremely expensive price tag and were only worn by actual royalty, or members of high society. Quartz is the second most abundant mineral found in the Earth’s crust. The name is derived from the German term “quarz” and originated from the Slavic word meaning hard. It is known to be one of the hardest minerals on earth which is why it has been historically utilized in making jewelry. Quartz gemstones are hard, durable and extremely attractive. The stones can come in a variety of colors and hues. Quartz is an inexpensive mineral, while some varieties can be extremely rare, most varieties and sizes are commonly available. It has been used for centuries in the creation of jewelry and other ornamental objects. Quartz is an extremely versatile material that can be cut and carved into many shapes and sizes which has made it an asset historical and antique jewelry. Today, quartz is one of the most important gemstones in the colored stone trade and in jewelry making. Domestic US: All items ship within one business day of receiving payment.
