Piece of the Day!

Hi There. 

Here at Isadora's we have decided to share with you all of our exciting pieces.  Since each one has such a uniqueness we've decided to share one piece at a time..

As a design and art major, I can't help but analysis the pieces of jewelry that come in and out of the store and wonder what the jewelry designers influences may have been at the time of it's creation. And as I peer down at this beautiful circa 1950's ring I can't help but think of it's architectural influences. This stunning Emerald and diamond ring reminds me mostly of the Eames House. The house is located in the Los Angeles and was built by husband-and-wife design pioneers Charles and Ray Eames, to serve as their home and studio in the late 1949's.

The avant-garde designs of the house echo's in this 50's ring. Skillfully girded and playful are both with a wonderful timeless quality. And Awww Great Craftsmanship!
