There is some very light facet wear on some of the stones, though this is hardly noticeable, and is not visible unless you look for it. The price of this item has been reduced to reflect this. This listing is for the item only.

The Art Deco era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1940. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specifically cut to fit the design of the piece. During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand.

The Mid-Century era, 1935 to 1965, encompassed many new styles of art and architecture and this carried over to jewelry making. This exciting time for jewelry saw movements such as Hollywood Regency, Modernism, Brutalism, and the Atomic Age. Native American artisans were also making their mark in the jewelry industry. Artisans used many kinds of metals, gemstones, glass, and experimented with ceramic and wood as well.

This era was filled with new and innovative designs, while also rejuvenating and reinventing older styles. The unique jewelry which emerged from this era is still very popular today. The Mid-Century Modernist style became a movement in art and jewelry in the 1940s, right after World War II, and peaked in the 1950s. The use of multi-colored metals became very popular due to wartime restrictions on certain materials; it was not uncommon to have brass, copper or gold-alloy accents with silver backgrounds. Mid-century Modernism is marked by clean lines and bold, abstract geometric shapes.

Amethysts are a semi-precious variety of quartz that are valued for their varying shades of translucent purple hues. The purple color is derived from iron and other trace element deposits. Throughout antiquity, amethysts were used in religious and royal jewelry, and were considered as valuable as rubies, emeralds, and even sapphires. Citrine is a variety of quartz that features a golden yellow hue. While yellow is the most common color, it can also be seen with a greenish-yellow, brownish-yellow, or orange tint.

One famous variety of citrine is Madeira citrine, which is named for the Madeira islands off the coast of Portugal. Citrine takes on a deep orange or reddish tint when heat treated. Named after the word for seawater in Latin, the aquamarine stone is known for its semi-translucent light blue hue.

Nearly all aquamarine stones are natural, as the cost for producing faux aquamarine is high. Aquamarine stones are often large, making them perfect for large items of jewelry, which look to showcase opulent and flashy stones.

Akoya saltwater pearls are cultured from the Akoya oyster and can be found primarily in Japan and China. They are known for their beautiful round shape and exquisite luster that sets them apart from many other types of pearls. They are usually white or cream in color but can have rose or silver undertones. During the Art Deco era, Akoya pearls were rare, expensive to own, and reserved for the richest of the rich. Garnets are a type of silicate mineral that have a long history of use, dating back as far as the Bronze Age where they were used in jewelry and as an abrasive. Historically, this stone has also been known as carbuncle and its modern name, garnet, is derived from the Latin granatus meaning seed, which is thought to be a reference to pomegranates. Found in almost any color imaginable, these stones are most commonly red in hue, with blue being the rarest variety and deep red the most prized. Throughout history these beautiful stones have been worn by the wealthy elite, ranging from the pharaohs of Egypt to the European nobility of the Middle ages. Today garnet continues to be a popular stone for use in jewelry, with the deepest red varieties being especially valuable and sought after. Prasiolite is a green type of quartz often referred to as green amethyst.

Prasiolite is formed when amethyst is heated, either artificially or through natural processes, turning their purple hue to a beautiful pale green. The word prasiolite means "scallion green-colored stone" and is derived from Greek prason meaning "leek" and lithos meaning stone.

The mineral was given its name due to its green-colored appearance. As many consumers are unfamiliar with prasiolite, it is very rare to find in jewelry.

During the Art Deco and Art Nouveau eras, moonstone jewelry was popularized by designers such as Tiffany and René Lalique. The Romans believed that moonstones were created by the gods from solidified rays of the moon due to the opalescent hue that it gives off that reminds the viewer of the moon peering through a thin layer of clouds.
