Shopping for diamonds can be intimidating both due to their value, and to the fact that small differences between stones can result in huge differences in prices. Hopefully this guide will help you understand how diamonds are valued!
Very simply, diamonds are graded and priced according to the four c's: Carat, Color, Clarity, and Cut.
Straddling the beginning of the 20th century, the Art Nouveau period was associated with long, sinuous lines, organic forms, and idealized feminine beauty as a reaction against the colder, more formal academic art that had defined the period before. Advances in technology allowed for certain enamel-manipulation techniques previously used in tableware and by Faberge for his famous eggs to be used in small pieces of jewelry. The technique, called plique-a-jour, gives the impression of illuminated stained glass designs in Gothic cathedrals on a much smaller scale.
This technique allowed jewelers to fill empty spaces in jewelry with enamel without backing required in techniques like cloisonne. This allowed transparent, colored accents to be added to pieces to imitate insect wings and vivid sunsets, common motifs during the Belle Epoque.
