If you’re looking for a stunning piece of jewelry that marries the appeal of both something old and something new, you’ll be sure to fall in love with our beautifully crafted vintage inspired 18k rose gold necklace, the Seaside necklace. With a pendant that features a nautical anchor, embellished with Round Brilliant Cut diamonds, it is the perfect piece for those with an affinity for the wide open sea, or who simply wish to showcase their inner strength and stability.
Anchors symbolize many different things, but most of all, they commemorate a safe return from a long and memorable journey. Our vintage inspired 18k rose gold necklace holds a well-deserved spot in our Nouveau Collection for many reasons. First off, it features multiple callings cards of the Art Nouveau period, such as:
- • Inspiration that comes from the natural world and a design that features the angular contours of geometric shapes.
- • A step away from excessive ornamentation in order to move toward more sleek, modern designs.
- • An emphasis on the design of the setting, rather than it being a mere vessel for the stones.
Secondly, the meaning behind the nautical anchor itself is a brilliant representation of what the jewelers of the time were experiencing. No journey is without risk, but it takes risk in order to achieve your goals and exact change. Jewelers no longer wanted to be seen as mere craftsmen, they wanted to be seen as the artists and designers. In order to do so, they started making pieces based on their own inspirations—and while they risked their own livelihoods, their movement marked what would become the beginnings of modernism. It was a long journey, but it had to start somewhere.
Make sure that you always have the courage and strength that it takes to achieve your goals; buy your very own Seaside vintage inspired 18k rose gold necklace today at Trumpet & Horn.
