We can learn a great deal about antique and vintage jewellery by studying old masterpieces. I hope you enjoy the stunning works below and feel as inspired by them as I do. I choose a few at seeming random but looking at them now as a whole I am struck by the shared sense of calm and grace emanating from the fine lines and sensual colours. I also note a predominance of pearls and ferronières.
