Back when jewelry was handmade by master craftspeople, no detail was left unexplored. From perfecting the setting of a one of kind diamond cut to creating intricate lace-like metal designs, there are no truer words than “they don’t make them like they used to”. These artisans also lacked access to the new modern technology allowing almost any imaginable composition to be realized, making their work all the more impressive.

 

Around the turn of the century, new advances made it possible to create jewelry entirely made out of platinum. By the time the Art Deco period came around, this technique had been perfected which also coincided with the discovery of the world’s largest platinum deposit in South Africa. Platinum was the ultimate metal of choice and because of its incredible strength, designs required less metal to securely hold diamonds. The resulting aesthetic was light and airy.

 

There was no shortage of jewelry made of platinum in the 1920s. Even clasps of long pearl necklaces were constructed out of platinum. We recently spotted one of these stunning creations, only to be delighted to convert it into a modern piece. The elegant and romantic arrangement of the platinum in this clasp speaks to the consideration and attention to detail that designers poured into their work, often a very time consuming process. Several rose cut diamonds are set throughout the curvilinear face with a rectangular silhouette. We think this is a natural beauty worthy of your wedding day or any old day you want to feel beautiful.
