New antiques of the futures

Jewelry from this era will be the new antiques of the futures. Period jewelry from 50, 60, 70 years ago has it own signature, it is recognisable, it was exclusive for that time and it is still very exclusive jewelry now a days. White gold, diamonds and abstract forms ruled the twenties and thirties, while yellow gold, colored stones and “frozen movements” were very popular in the 1940s and 1950s.
