Manufacturing techniques have vastly changed over the years, and while jewellery manufacturers today keep their products simple and easy to produce, antique jewellery was always crafted with skilled techniques which required time and precision. Unfortunately, this rarely happens anymore and it’s all about producing pieces as quickly and as cheaply as possible and because of this, antique jewellery is far more detailed and intricate in design so is far more pleasing to the eye and unique in character. Each era saw different jewellery styles arise, and all are still very popular today depending on personal taste and preferences in the end piece to be purchased and worn.
One of the many benefits of the aesthetic side of antique jewellery is that each piece is so unique, as of course, you would expect. Due to the change in manufacturing techniques you will not find anything similar on the market today, and because of the age of each piece being around 100 years old or more it is extremely unlikely you will come across someone wearing the same antique gem…which is perfect for many! This makes each piece more personal and extra special to the wearer, and there are antique pieces suitable for any occasion. Antique engagement rings have become increasing popular over recent years due to their unique qualities and romantic history, however you can invest in beautiful drop earrings for evening occasions, pendants for every day wear and many more.
