Having the Great Gatsby fever can be heartbreaking. It’s no wonder so many people grab over-the-counter (read: “reproduction”) Art Deco-ish jewelry to soothe their urge! Unfortunately, there isn’t much, if any, original Art Deco jewelry available in modern jewelry stores. Luckily for you now there is Adin!
There is no doubt that the original Art Deco jewelry from The Garden of Adin is key to combat the terrible Great Gatsby fever. Pampered by the Gardener in the fertile soil of The Garden of Adin, our original Art Deco jewelry achieved its full Gatsby fever-fighting potential.
Therefore it is with great delight that we offer our all 100% original Art Deco jewelry for you to try!
Luxury 1920’s Jewelry – The Great Gatsby Style – Why not the real?
The fashion inspired by “The Great Gatsby” promises to be the Spring Trend. The movie will be presented at the opening of the next Cannes Film Festival. The opportunity to fall in love with aestheticism and glamour found in sets, cars, outfits, jewelry and lavish parties given by Gatsby.
Luxury is also found on each character. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire are displayed in perfect black and white, some signed Brooks Brothers. Suspenders and slicked-back hair, impossible not to fall for these gentlemen from another time. The actresses are not to be outdone, the British Carey Mulligan highlights each stage a new set of jewelery. Between precious stones and pearls, it makes us want to run in the first jeweler to buy identical jewels.
Precious witnesses of that era, the Art Deco jewelry transmitted by our grandparents provide to true lovers: original work, atypical shapes, amazing colors and extraordinary creativity.
The sign of springtime!
The Gardener of Adin, not aware of this yearly contest, stumbled upon a nest full of eggs when weeding the Garden of Adin, becoming the unintentional winner of this folkloric event.
Nobody but a real princess could be as sensitive as that!
So the prince took her for his wife, for now he knew that he had a ‘real’ princess; and the clip was put in the Adin Museum of Fairy Tale Artifacts, where it may still be seen, provided no one has bought it!
Once upon a time… long, long ago, there was a snow-white Jade Dragon, living in a rock cave on the east bank of the Celestial River. In the great forest across the river lived a beautiful Golden Phoenix.
Leaving their home every morning, the dragon and the phoenix met each other before going their different ways. One flew in the sky, while the other swam in the Celestial River. One day, both came to a fairy island. There they found two shining pebbles and were fascinated by their beauty.
“Look, how beautiful these pebbles are!” Golden Phoenix said to Jade Dragon.
“Let’s carve them into pendants,” said Jade Dragon.
Golden Phoenix nodded in agreement. Then they started working on it, Jade Dragon using his claws and Golden Phoenix her beak. They carved the pebbles day after day, month after month, until they finally made them into perfect pendants. In high spirits Golden Phoenix flew to the sacred mountain to gather diamonds and Jade Dragon carried a lot of clear platinum from the Celestial River. They sprinkled and washed the pendants with diamonds and platinum. Gradually the pendants turned into dazzling earrings.
It is with great pride that the curator of the Adin Museum of Fairy Tale Artifacts presents these dazzling earrings in his collection.
One of the major design events of the 1920s, if not the most important, was “L’exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes” which is French for “The International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts”. This World’s fair was held in Paris, France from April to October 1925.
The term Art Deco was derived by shortening the words Arts Décoratifs in the title of this exposition and described designs in terms of a broad decoratively “modern” style, influenced strongly by Decorative Cubism. One of the members of the Admission Committee for the jewelry department of this trail-blazing fair was the maker of the pin we show here, Mr. George Fouquet.
George Fouquet (1862-1957) is recognized as one of the very few and best known artist jewelers of his time. He won many international awards and worked closely together with artists of his time, like Alfons Mucha.
George Fouquet’s jewelry can be found in collections of many important museums all over the world; from the Victorian & Albert in London to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. He bequeathed his archive and designs to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris
The so-called jabot-pin by George Fouquet we show here, is as close as one can get to the source of pure Art Deco jewelry.
