More than once the classic is associated with something common and rich. Such views mean that a significant number of today's designers depart from the classics and try to set new trends in all areas of art. With what effect?
This is often associated with the rejection of the heritage developed by previous generations. Gradually, the boundaries between what is beautiful and ugly, elaborate and kitschy, precious and worthless are blurring. This causes a kind of information noise, causing confusion and a kind of anxiety characteristic of the 21st century. What does all this have to do with jewelry?
The cure for mass production of worthless, cold designs aimed at satisfying someone's greed is the classic.
And I don't mean making retro jewelry - it's about the way of thinking, considering where we came from and where we're going, instead of living the motto: "Let's eat and drink [preferably at someone else's expense] because we will die tomorrow." It is the classics, i.e. the heritage of previous generations, that is the source of enormous knowledge and inspiration.
The ability to transform these achievements into a new quality for the benefit of others testifies to craftsmanship and high artistic culture. It's a bit like classical music. The most beautiful and complex compositions that have inspired entire generations come from the classics. Its value is unquestionable. Skipping that foundation is like building a house in sand - impermanent at best. It is the same with jewelry, because the rules are the same.
The ring below was made according to this line of thinking. A 2.50 ct diamond with an emerald cut, VVS1 clarity and color F has been set in a classic way. It is complemented by diamonds mounted in a modern row setting on a wedding ring. Everything is made of white gold. In 100, 200 years, this jewel will not lose any of its appearance. Why? Because the classics are immortal.
