Erica asks: Which is your favorite jewelry era?
There was a time when I wouldn't wear a piece of jewelry that wasn't at least 100 years old. But as I've gotten older (not old), I've learned to appreciate quality ... regardless of age. That goes for jewelry as well. I've come to the conclusion that while a finely crafted antique piece may enjoy added value due to its age and rarity, it doesn't make it any more intrinsically valuable - or more finely crafted - than a well-made modern piece.
What's your preference in jewelry? Antiquity, Georgian, Victorian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Vintage, or Contemporary? Do you stick with one style, or are your tastes eclectic?
