Antique jewellery can make an attractive foundation to the story of your life together, and every couple wants make their wedding day as unique as possible.
Many families have special heirlooms which have been passed down and adding these into your wedding accessories can be the perfect way to honour your loved ones.
If you don’t have a special piece then choosing something vintage can help to be part of your own story going forward to pass down to the next generation, whether that’s from the Georgian, Victorian, Art Nouveau, Edwardian or Art Deco period.
With the help of Carus Jewellery I have found some beautiful vintage/ antique jewellery pieces that would make a stunning addition to a vintage inspired Wedding for Brides and Grooms, or the perfect ring for a wonderful proposal.
1930`s Trifari Brooch
Period: Art Deco Jewellery (1920 – 1935)
This gold plated spray brooch, studded with clear rhinestones is individually mounted in a closed back rub over setting.
Each rhinestone frond features a twisted rope finish, which adds texture as well as extra sparkle to the piece.
The rhinestone fronds alternate with metallic blue fronds, creating a gorgeous combination of depth and sparkle.
This brooch is signed Trifari and is an original piece of vintage costume jewellery.
A brooch can be pinned to a collar, or a bodice or used as part of a brooch bouquet, and this pretty piece is the perfect “Something Blue.”
Edwardian Peridot & Pearl Bangle
Period: Edwardian Jewellery (1901 – 1914)
This exquisite Edwardian peridot and split pearl bangle has an oval cut peridot gemstone weighing 1.7ct has been set in 9ct gold with a surround of split seed pearls, with split pearl foliate design to either side.
The bangle is hinged and fitted with a safety chain, it also comes with its original box.
A beautiful vintage bracelet such as this can make a statement when used as an accessory when the neckline calls for simplicity.
Edwardian Seed Pearl Necklace
Period: Edwardian Jewellery (1901 – 1914 )
This rich 15ct gold Edwardian seed pearl necklace has five graduated seed pearl flowers which are separated with split seed pearl foliate spacers and suspended from a rope-link chain.
The beautifully designed necklace could be a beautiful focal point with a minimalist gown.
9ct Gold & Enamel Cufflinks
Period: Art Deco Jewellery (1920 – 1935)
These meticulously crafted pair of Art Deco cufflinks are classically designed in 9ct gold, with engine-turned central panels.
Surrounded by a Greek key pattern made from white enamel and connect with 9ct gold cable link chains, they come with their original fitted case.
For the gentlemen cufflinks by their very nature are just a little retro, but always stylish, characterful and charming.
Greek key pattern, also referred to as meander, is in its most basic form a linear pattern, and its believed that the meander motif symbolises infinity or the eternal flow of things, and thats always great going into what is hopefully a long and loving marriage.
Georgian Dearest Ring
Period: Georgian Jewellery (1714 – 1837)
This very pretty Georgian acrostic ring is designed as a floral cluster spelling out the word ”Dearest “.
Starting with an old cut diamond at its center weighing 10 points it is surrounded by round cut emerald, amethyst, ruby, sapphire and turquoise cabochons mounted in 9ct yellow gold.
An antique ring such is this is a wonderful way to be different and stand out from the crowd with its uniqueness.
Its romantic past life and just the appeal of wearing something precious that has a story attached is an incredible way to ask your Dearest to spend the rest of their lives with you.
Fine antique jewellery by its very nature is classically beautiful exuding elegance, sophistication and good taste.
Additionally wearing a piece of vintage jewellery can lower your impact on the planet so choosing vintage is a great eco conscious decision doing your bit for the Earth with the ultimate in recycling.
Vintage pieces also tend to have handcrafted elements you won’t find in contemporary jewellery.
The wearer can feel that they have a piece that is distinctive with the added benefit of increasing in value with the passage of time.
It is these attributes, that have allowed antique jewellery to maintain its timeless appeal, not just today but down through the ages.
