This time was inspired by the beauty of women and the natural world, and the resulting pieces were often large and elegant. The enamel was a material commonly used in art nouveau jewellery, as the period emphasized the importance of design in relation to the materials used to create it. The art nouveau period took place before the beginning of the First World War, when mass manufacturing took over the production of many products, including some jewellery. Ancient Turkish, Islamic and Bedouin jewels all share similar ancestral and stylistic roots and have been influenced by trade for many years. This can be largely attributed to the expansion of the Ottoman Empire, which valued art and crafts, and promoted the pursuit of Arab arts and calligraphy.
The reign of Ottomans in the xvie and xvii centuries introduced Turkish motifs into Islamic motifs and nomadic Bedouin culture, merging a range of styles into beautiful arabesques; repeating rhythmic motifs, which often include floral and organic geometric motifs. The cavalries have a long and royal history, their first use going back to mesopotamia around 3500 B. Although the drawings and patterns of the chivalry have changed and evolved since that time, their uses have remained the same. Equestrians were mainly used as an identification mark for the powerful in order to safely seal important documents.
For much of the history, a wax seal was a sign of validity more certain than a signature. Often, the cavalries were destroyed at the death of the individual who owned them in order to prevent fraudulent documents from appearing with their approval mark.To this day, the chimes are a sign of authenticity and power, making it an ideal complement to any collection of antiques. Praised for its intense blue colour and unique golden spots, the lapis-lazuli has been extracted since about 7,000 BC. Some of the oldest and most beautiful lapis-lazuli mines are located in Afghanistan, particularly in the province of Badakhshan, where several mines are still in operation. From the civilization of the valley of the indus to the ancient Egyptians and the artists of the medieval Europe, the lapis-lazuli was a very prized and sought after stone. Popular not only in jewellery, lapis-lazuli has also been reduced to powder by renaissance artists, who used it to create the expensive overseas blue pigment used in oil paintings. Throughout human history, lapis-lazuli has been carved and transformed into sandstone, jewellery and other decorative objects. Its rich blue pigment and its catchy golden spots make the stone very popular in ancient and modern jewels. All items are shipped within one business day of receipt of payment.
