RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The latest trends in jewelry styles are a throwback to the roaring twenties. Michael Bisceglia, president of Stauer, notes that vintage art deco inspired looks take center stage this Valentine's Day, as shoppers search for unique artistic looking pieces to gift their loved ones.
From the spring runways (Ralph Lauren, Gucci and Chloe) to Hollywood's silver screen, designers have embraced the 1920's in a big way thanks to hits like HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" and Baz Luhrman's upcoming remake of "The Great Gatsby" starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
Over the last year, Stauer has seen demand for art deco-inspired pieces skyrocket. "It appears that old-fashion romance is on the rise. Our customers love jewelry with history," says Bisceglia. "When it comes to elegance and opulence, nothing beats art deco."
For those who don't have thousands of dollars to spend bidding on vintage accessories, the classic look of vintage art deco jewelry without a Jay Gatsby-sized bank account is readily available. Stauer offers an impressive collection of rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets that perfectly capture the bold style of Jazz Age jewelry design.
Enlisting the help of jewelry makers from around the world, Stauer has reproduced some of the greatest designs of the decade. What sets Stauer's re-creations apart is Biscelgia's attention to detail. "I just fell in love with the art of those vintage pieces. I insisted that our designers keep the jewelry true to the time."
Highlights of the vintage jewelry selection include a number of items under $200 such as the Stauer Decadence Deco Ring($199) featuring genuine rubies and lab-created DiamondAura in an eye-catching 1920's design. The elongated setting is crafted of the finest .925 sterling silver and was originally made to highlight the length of a woman's finger. The Stauer Spire Sapphire Necklace ($159) highlights a plunging, millegrain sterling silver pendant set with natural sapphires and brilliant white, lab-created DiamondAura.
Founded in 2005, Stauer is one of the largest direct retailers of jewelry, watches and accessories in the United States with annualized sales over $200 million.
