Design Era

Design & Historical Context

Contemporary jewellery is a type of jewellery that reflects current trends and styles, and is often made from a variety of materials beyond the traditional precious metals and stones. This allows contemporary jewellery to have a more modern and unique appearance compared to classic jewellery. To create contemporary jewellery, it is necessary to have both specialized training and a deep understanding of the subject. The contemporary style combines historical techniques and artistic expression with innovative ideas and materials, giving it a distinct personality that falls between fashionable mass-produced jewellery and traditional artisanal works of art.

Materials & Craftsmanship


Silver is a white metallic element that is known for its excellent conductivity of heat and electricity. It is represented on the periodic table of elements by the symbol Ag, and it is a member of the noble metals, which are known for their excellent resistance to oxidation.

Silver is a relatively soft metal, with a hardness that is intermediate between gold and copper. It is more malleable and ductile than gold, which means that it can be easily shaped and molded into various forms. However, it is not as hard as copper, which means that it is more prone to scratches and other types of damage.

Because of its softness, silver is usually alloyed with another metal to harden it enough to maintain the desired shape and details when it is used in jewelry and other decorative objects. This helps to give it the necessary strength and durability for use in these types of applications.

Throughout history, silver has played a prominent role in the production of jewelry and objets d'art. It is prized for its beauty and versatility, and it is often used in a wide variety of different types of jewelry, including rings, earrings, pendants, and bracelets. It is also used in decorative objects, such as candlesticks, vases, and other decorative items.


Plating is a process in which a metal is deposited onto a conductive surface to provide a decorative finish, improve corrosion resistance, enhance solderability, harden the surface, reduce friction, improve paint adhesion, alter conductivity, improve infrared reflectivity, provide radiation shielding, and other purposes. Plating has been used for hundreds of years, and it is also critical for modern technology.

In the jewelry industry, plating is often used to give a silver or gold finish to jewelry. The process involves using an electrolytic solution to deposit a thin layer of metal onto the surface of the jewelry. Plating can be done using a variety of different metals, including gold, silver, copper, brass, and others.

Plating is also used in the production of various other products, including electronics, automotive parts, and medical devices. In these applications, it is used to improve the performance and durability of the products.

Thin-film deposition techniques have allowed for the plating of objects as small as an atom, making plating an important process in nanotechnology. Plating is also used in the production of decorative objects, such as decorative plates and vases, as well as in the restoration of antique objects.

Enhance the Beauty of Your Jewelry with Proper Care

Wearing your jewelry is a special way to express yourself and add a touch of personal style to any look. However, to ensure your jewelry remains in pristine condition, there are a few simple steps you need to take to keep it looking its best.

General Care Instructions:

Remove jewelry when showering or bathing, especially when at the beach, in the sea or in chlorinated water.
Avoid wearing jewelry while doing physical work such as housekeeping, gardening or exercise.
Storing your jewelry in a dry and cool place will help protect it from moisture, dirt and dust.
Keeping it away from harsh chemicals such as bleach, ammonia and chlorine will help to avoid discoloration and damage.
Cleaning your jewelry regularly with a soft cloth will help to keep it looking shiny and new.
Avoid exposing your jewelry to extreme temperatures, such as leaving it in direct sunlight or near a heater, as this can cause damage.
Handle your jewelry carefully and avoid dropping it, as this can cause the stones to loosen or the metals to scratch.
Finally, if possible, have your jewelry professionally checked and serviced. This will ensure that any potential problems are spotted and fixed before they become worse.
