The Blog of Jewelry RSS
Hey Jewelry Lovers! I'm removing the timelines from our collection pages as they slow down the load time too much. But they are useful and I love them, so were going to archive them to the blog. Heres a timeline covering middle ages jewelry - roughly 400 AD through the end of the Renaissance. Please check out the slideshows and let us know what you think in the comments.
Hey Jewelry Lovers! I'm removing the timelines from our collection pages as they slow down the load time too much. But they are useful and I love them, so were going to archive them to the blog. Heres a timeline covering modern jewelry - 18th century to present. Please check out the slideshows and let us know what you think in the comments.
I'm cleaning up the site a bit as the variety of gemstones on the homepages was getting out of hand - so I killed them (you can still see all the stones in our gemstone jewelry collections) and redid the rest of our homepage and a few collections. Let me know what you think.
The corner where this image was shot from housed the Museum of Jewelry Store and before that a Greenpeace Store. People loved our Shop. The building made a lot of sense in good years. When we were featured in Vogue magazine and our products appeared movie after movie and were wholesaling to the likes of Nordstroms, we employed about fifty people and needed a large office.
Covered here is some of the history that begat this explosion of fashion, Renaissance jewelry trends, typical styles, and types of jewelry popular during the Renaissance, and a few of our designs. We hope you find it a useful companion to the Museum's Renaissance jewelry collection.
Just a quick note to let you know that our store, website, and blog have gone multi-lingual. Museum of Jewelry is now available in Japanese, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and (for funzies) Latin.
For a long time I've played with the idea of adding some timelines and maps to the website but have not really found a way to organize our collections effectively. I think I've finally figured it out. Check out our new timelines and let us know what you think!
"Modern" is a bit tongue in cheek when your jewelry is inspired by history. I've been hard at work cleaning up our modern collection and its subsets, and I want to walk a bit through the periods we represent.
Specifically today I want to talk about the Georgian era in general and dive into Georgian fashion, and some of the Georgian jewelry trends represented in our collection.
