Many of the techniques and styles of yesteryear have been all but lost. K. Goldschmidt keeps these specialties alive in the timeless designs of their fine antique style jewelry.
Enamel is used to add color or accent fine jewelry. K. Goldschmidt uses hot enamel, a virtually lost art where the enamel, (which is actually fine colored glass-like particles in a slurry), is painted onto the piece then fired in an oven to fuse the enamel into a hard, beautiful finish.
Etruscan beadwork, small solid gold balls, were very popular generations ago, are found in some of K. Goldschmidts creations.
Slide Bracelets, which have made resurgence on the fashion scene, are actually based on gentlemens pocket watch fobs from the 1800s. Some of the fob styles have also been used to create earrings and slider (Lariet) necklaces.
Fine Colored Gems like ruby, sapphire, and emeralds are used as centerpieces and accents in many K. Goldschmidt creations. Precious and semi-precious gems are selected for their color, clarity and quality.
Queen Victoria loved opals so much, she gave them as wedding presents.
Quality craftsmanship and authentic styling are key to the success and popularity of K. Goldschmidt jewelry.
