This beautiful piece is a replica from the Art Deco Era! The Art Deco Era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" Era.
A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewellery came out of this period. During the Art Deco Period jewellers often made jewellery upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Chinese Export jewellery became popular during the late Victorian Period and lasted until the 1960's. In a lot of ways Chinese Export jewellery fashioned what we know of jewellery today.
During these periods, Chinese Craftsmen, including Jewellers and Stone cutters, were considered by far the best in the world. The rich and wealthy would have a piece custom ordered through their local jeweller whom was usually gifted at drawing a design to send off to contacts in China to craft and send back. As you can imagine, this was not cheap, that being said, these pieces are very rare and few have survived until today. Chinese Stone cutters were considered some of the finest artisans in the world during the Vintage Era.They would car ve western themes as well as the more rare traditional eastern themes into their many pieces. During the Art Nouveau Period a style in jewellery became popular, this style was called (Spray Jewellery). Spray jewelry often includes precious stones and gold metal or wire work spread out in different directions to highlight the wearer and catch eyes from across a room. It was in China-where the gem-car ving tradition was already thousands of years old-In China in the late 1700's, and late eighteenth and early nineteenth century ca rvers created masterpieces that are still unsurpassed in concept, design, and technical craftmanship.
