Jewelry Information

Understanding jewelry throughout history is a never-ending learning process. From simple beginnings, the creation of jewelry has transcended the use of basic materials from the earth and has evolved in both complexity and creativity ever since. The principle today remains the same as always - to create symbols of love and adornment.

But the materials used in making jewelry change from period to period. Many of these materials are no longer used, and many of the handcrafted techniques that were passed from master to apprentice have been forgotten; replaced by machines and modern processes. This is what makes jewelry from our past unique - we can hold in our hands not just a piece of history, but a symbol of creativity that required painstaking effort, time, and craftsmanship on the part of its maker.


The advice on about  jewelry antique to vintage information comes from jewelry experts Linda and Perry, as well as from our frequent visitors. If you'd like to add anything to this page, or have us add a topic of interest for you, email us at
