Classic jewelry creations are eternal, but there's a new generation of
contemporary statement jewelry that is gaining ground in the art of designing
objects of desire.
What is the difference between a jewelry designer and a jewelry brands?
Jewelry designers are usually seen as the creative force for jewelry brands.
They are specialized goldsmiths and silversmiths who draw future jewelry collections to be
marketed by jewelry brands. In certain cases, designers can also lend their name to the brand.
The first stars of the jewelry world rose on the 20th century. Names like Jean Schlumberger,
Kurt Aepli, Frank Gehry, Elsa Peretti, Kenneth Jay Lane, Miriam Haskell, Louise Nippierd,
Paloma Picasso, Louis Comfort Tiffany and Coco Chanel created incredible and innovative
jewelry pieces and marketed a whole new way of wearing jewels.
The techniques and equipment of the early 20th century have changed quickly and so did
jewelry design. Today, experimentation is everything when it comes to fashion jewelry.
