HISTORY OF THE CLEARING OF STERLING SILVER

Since silver is a soft metal, it is practically not used in its pure form. Most often it is an alloy of silver and copper.

The Art Deco style first made itself known in the early 1920s in France, then spread to the United States and most European countries.

When you imagine a woman of the 30s, the imagination draws a short-cut lady, shrouded in
a cloud of cigarette smoke, which, along with men, knows how to drive a car, but at the same time does not refuse exquisite jewelry and outfits. They only became different – the complexity and floridity of the Art Nouveau style disappeared, and simplicity and practicality came to the fore. Continue reading
