Vintage Jewelry from Georgian to Art Deco

As a purveyor of estate jewelry, we find that our most sought after pieces pre-date 1940 and go all the way back to the Georgian era, spanning 5 eras. It may be hard to distinguish one from the other if you haven’t been trained to do so but they each have distinct characteristics. Here we delve into each era and explain the design behind the time period. If you would like to view more examples of vintage pieces, visit our website and view our vintage collection.

Janet’s Picks – delicate everyday jewelry

 

Janet’s first selection is what we refer to as “diamonds by the yard” or a “station necklace”. The collection comes in many colors: rose, yellow and white gold as well as many lengths. They are available in bracelet as well as necklace. The price point varies on the size of diamonds but the bracelets begin at $480 and the necklaces begin at $840.

“I love both the diamond station bracelet and necklace. In fact, I just ordered a bracelet as a friend’s gift. They are perfectly delicate when worn alone and add just the right amount of sparkle and interest when layered. Because of the delicacy I like that they can be layered with mixed metals – yellow gold with a sliver cuff, etc…” – Janet

Theme: Festive Fall Warmth – a beautiful November wedding that was not tied to a particular holiday but seasonal, welcoming, and romantic. 

Venue: The Boat House at Confluence Park 

“We selected The Boat House because we thought it would be absolutely perfect for a November wedding. Because we had a lot of Kate’s family coming in from Chicago, we wanted a venue that was close to the Short North, Downtown, and Ohio State University. The view of downtown from the Buckeye Room at The Boat House is unbelievable!”

Welcome to the “B” Collection by Gumuchian

 

Gumuchian Jewelry Store

What’s the Buzz this Summer at Argo? The “B” Collection by Gumuchian

It’s arrived and just in time for the summer! Love at first sight, we fell head over heels for this exquisitely crafted bee inspired line by the high-end designer, Gumuchian. And of course, we couldn’t resist when we found that a portion of the sale goes back to the bees!

Being in the industry for years, we know fine jewelry when we see it. Gumuchian is just that. Their name has earned a well-established reputation in the diamond and jewelry industry due to their superior craftsmanship and spectacular design. Just holding a Gumuchian piece is a delight, you immediately notice the high quality the moment you interact with the jewelry.

This bee-inspired collection is available in 18 karat yellow, white and rose gold as well as platinum. Many of the shapes are hexagonal to reflect the bee’s hive. The way the diamonds contrast with the beautiful metals and the negative hex space is just striking! Below is just a sample of the rich and bold designs of the “B” collection. View the whole Gumuchian collection here.
