Topazery Jewelry Now Indulging the Antique Jewelry Industry's and Hollywood's Art Deco Demands

Hollywood is echoing this summer's New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show trend toward Art Deco jewelry pieces. In response, antique jewelry boutique Topazery is now putting its collection of Art Deco engagement rings, bracelets, crosses and earrings in the spotlight to cater to those trendsetting demands.

Atlanta, GA December 27, 2012 - Following this past summer's New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show, Topazery Jewelry has shifted its antique jewelry inventory to prominently showcase the Art Deco trends that emerged from the exhibition. In the process, the online antique jewelry boutique has noted that the Art Deco trend is spilling over into Hollywood, where celebrities are also embracing 1920s era jewelry pieces.

When the 6th Annual New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show wrapped up in late July, a few clear trends had emerged, with one of the top ones being Art Deco jewelry. A press release issued by the show declared, "Also featured this year were items ranging from all categories of jewelry such as cameos, tennis bracelets, rings, decorative necklaces, brooches, gemstones and pendants from various time periods including the Renaissance to Art Deco eras."

In its coverage of the show, Antiques and the Arts Online prominently featured exhibitors showcasing Art Deco rings and other antique jewelry pieces, all of which "garnered much attention." That interest has been inundating Hollywood as well. When Justin Timberlake popped the question of his longtime celebrity girlfriend Jessica Biel, for example, he did so with a self-designed diamond engagement ring in the Art Deco style. That choice obviously wowed for she said yes and the former Miss Biel is now a Mrs. Timberlake. When fashion stylist to the stars Rachel Zoe recently unveiled her new jewelry collection, it too was full of Art Deco statement pieces.

Dating back to the 1920s, "Art Deco jewelry complimented the flamboyant and playful attitude of the day," Topazery spokesperson Jan Walden explains. Fed up with the constraints being placed on them by society and the Great Depression, women started to break the mold. Walden speculates that the current recession may be fueling the resurgence in Art Deco jewelry.

"Forced into a self-imposed non-spending mode for too long, I think women are ready to start buying bling again," she says. "The dazzling jewelry being produced during the Art Deco era featured bold, bright colors and straight lines that sharply contrasted with the jewelry of the previous restrictive periods women were yearning to leave behind."

Antique jewelry boutique is now carrying over two dozen Art Deco rings, bracelets, crosses and earrings to help today's women do the same thing. Among them is an old European cut diamond engagement ring with a square top plate in the same vein as Jessica Biel's custom engagement ring.

 Topazery Jewelry Promotes New Year's Resolution that will Last beyond February: Antique Jewelry

Why spend hard-earned cash on a New Year’s resolution that won’t make it to spring, let alone 2014? Antique jewelry boutique Topazery promotes buying a long-lasting piece of antique jewelry instead for enduring happiness and enjoyment.

Atlanta, GA January 01, 2013 - With the average New Year's resolution being kept less than 60 days, antique jewelry boutique Topazery has a piece of advice for would-be resolvers as 2013 quickly approaches: Don't waste your hard-earned money on a New Year's resolution that won't make it through the winter. Buy an antique ring, necklace, pin, brooch, bracelet or pair of earrings instead. Not only will such a New Year's purchase last for decades, but it will also still be in style as time goes by. The same can't be said for that well-intentioned treadmill that winds up gathering dust in the basement.

According to a survey conducted by the time management firm FranklinCovey in late 2007, a full one in three resolvers will break their promise to themselves before the calendar even hits February. What’s more, 80% of New Year’s Eve vows will eventually go on to be broken, giving them a worse track record than American marriages. In fact, another study conducted by British psychologist Richard Wiseman found that a whopping 88% of those who set New Year’s resolutions ultimately fail at them.

Despite this sky-high un-success rate, come December 31, people continue to vow to lose weight, exercise more, eat better, etc. And to assist them in their goals, they shell out big bucks for products like pre-packaged weight-loss meals, exercise equipment, gym memberships, and the list goes on. By February, however, more likely than not, they are right back to doing what they used to do, with all that money sucked down the drain, never to be recaptured.

By putting that cash to better use on something that will not only make it through the winter but actually endure for years and years to come, New Year's resolvers can benefit from something money just can't buy: lasting enjoyment and happiness. And an antique jewelry piece from can provide them with both intangibles.

"Most of the antique jewelry pieces we carry have been around for decades and are still in style," explains Topazery Jewelry spokesperson Jan Walden. "That they have so well stood the test of time is a testament to their design and craftsmanship. It's also a reflection that they'll be around for many more years to come, long after most New Year's resolutions are forgotten about."
