There’s no gemstone quite as striking as the aquamarine. With its fusion of icy azure tones to deep cerulean hues, the aquamarine is reminiscent of the vibrancy and sparkling iridescence of the ocean. The aquamarine has been used in decorative jewellery dating as far back as 500 B.C, signifying its timeless appeal and embodiment of classic elegance.
Why do we still find Art Deco jewellery so fascinating? The feverish elements of Modern, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Roaring twenties and a splash of design borrowed from ancient cultures, is what defines this. This movement evokes sophistication and elegance and is perhaps best remembered in the world of jewellery by Cartier’s Tutti Frutti bracelet and 1922 discovery of Scarab jewellery found in King Tut’s burial chamber.
