“So what style of jewellery would you like?”
“errrrr………something nice…..I guess, western maybe?!…”
If you’ve found yourself lost for words when it came to describing styles in fashion, specifically in jewellery, here’s where you could get acquainted with style terminology and what they really mean…All it takes is a few key observations!
Would transcend generations
Does not have distinct motifs
Highlights the material, not the subject/motif
Is from a certain period in the art history, viz, Nouveau, Edwardian, Victorian, Byzantine, Baroque, and Rococo.
Have distinct elements with reference to materials used, gemstone setting styles, motifs and treatments for each period.
Reflects new interpretations of old ideas
Breaks conventional norms
That glorifies freedom of expression
May not necessarily incorporate precious materials
Is not replicated very easily
That does not have an distinctive identity / design philosophy
Now, the fun part is where we actually do a bit of this and a bit of that, and come up with styles that are fresh and suit your personality, since nobody wants what has already been done. So, we could have a contemporary-classic, or a period-inspired contemporary piece of work!
At Gehna we love creating new designs with gold, silver, diamond, ruby, emerald etc that suit your taste & style. So hope you enjoyed this tidbit of information 🙂
