Getting the Royal Treatment

By: Jeffrey M. Bertman Graduate GemologistCall it the “William and Kate effect” if you like, but there is no denying the influence that the marriage of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge has exerted over the diamond-buying public. While the design of diamond jewelry has always been inspired by the Victorian, Edwardian, and Art Deco eras, today’s diamond pieces show especially strong designs. Diamond pieces featuring intricate scrollwork and architectural designs of Art Deco jewelry or the floral romance of Victorian-style necklaces, bracelets, and rings abound. At the same time, the royal marriage has sparked a revival in royal forms of jewelry design such as multi-layered rings in intricate patterns and rings with one large stone surrounded by many smaller ones.While many people seek out Victorian, Edwardian and other vintage designed jewelry at estate sales and auction, the demand for these styles has inspired jewelry designers to incorporate it into present-day pieces. Choose a perfect pair of the finest quality, vintage designed diamond earrings, ring, or pendants at 1402 Hancock Street, Quincy Center. Or reach us at 617-773-3636
