Old Jewellery is our passionStorjohann
Old jewellery, in particular antique jewellery manufactured before 1950, is our passion.
Portable and modern taste corresponding antique jewellery origins from the time between 1750 and 1950. By definition antique jewellery is at least 50 years old – by this we as a trader understand the artistic jewellery production up to the end of the Art déco epoch at the end of the 1940s. During two centuries goldsmiths and jewellers perpetuated the technical and cultural progress of its respective epoch for good in the finest manual labour.
A revolutionary fashion and jewellery creation was set off from England by the Georgian epoch. In the beginning still restrained in opulent golden and cut steel pieces of jewellery. In the meantime, antique jewellery of the early 19th century established coloured gemstones and diamonds as an important stylistic means in the jewellery art from England, France and Italy. During the German Biedermeier period and Historicism, so from approximately 1820, gold and garnet red dominated the fashion and jewellery design.
Especially respectable and also technically seen advanced pieces of jewellery have remained from the Victorian epoch. This time is connected inseparably with the meteoric rise of the English culture and its worldwide spread. Antique jewellery from this time, from 1837 to 1901, has set standards, by which the jewellery creators of later epochs, like Edwardian, Art nouveau and Art déco orientated themselves. Florale elements entered colliers, bracelets and earrings during the Victorian epoch. Such motives have been perfected by jewellery designers in Paris and in the Arts + Crafts repair shops of England in first decades of the 20th century.
