Style Feature: Growing Art Nouveau Collection in 2013

After a fantastic visit to the Tucson Gem show, we stumbled across some of the coolest vintage finds we have seen in a really long time, and I think they are pretty exciting. As Art Nouveau nerds, part of the reason we like to make spoon rings is that it is a way to celebrate the craftsmanship and mastery of silversmithing of old that one does not see much of in this day and age.

  Here are a few snapshots (and links) to some of the vintage, Art Nouveau jewelry finds that we are proud to offer in our expanding Vintage section. Please click on any of the links or photos to see more shots, as well as a description of each item in our store:

  As we move into 2013, we are really excited about our growing vintage section. Items are going fast, so we will be sure to keep an eye out for the most eye catching, beautiful and classic examples that the Art Nouveau period has to offer.

 To all the fellow vintage fans out there: what are you most interested in? What would you like to see in stock at Spoonier? Leave us a comment or connect with us on Facebook!

Style Feature: Exclusive Victorian Dragon Pattern Now Available at Spoonier

Victorian Dragon Sterling Silver Spoon Ring, now available!
 Introducing a new blog series, "Style Feature!" Here at Spoonier, we are proud to stock some of the most unique and downright elegant patterns we have ever seen. We thought it was a good idea to start documenting some that we feel are more rare to come across.

New lot of Victorian Dragon pattern spoons, beautifully finished into rings exclusively at Spoonier.  This ring has lovely detailed depiction of a dragon amid deilicate florentine design. Click here to see our current stock, or visit our store any time! 

 Patented in 1875, Whiting ARABESQUE sterling silver demitasse spoon was made for George C. Shreve & Co., a large San Fransisco jeweler. A traditional rendition of the mythical beast that was originally from the middle ages, but revived during the Victorian period. Really catches your eye! 

This is not a reproduction but an original piece.

Incredible detail remains on these silver rings that is both unique and elegant. Excellent condition, makes a great gift.

NOTE: Message us on Etsy if we do not currently have any of this item in stock. We have a wish list and can order one for you! 
Incredible detail throughout the top of the ring, yet smooth for a comfortable wear on your finger. 

Made of the finest Sterling Silver, I put a brushed finish on these rings to even out the surface for a brilliant matte look! Simply stunning with the antique patina that naturally occurs in vintage spoons.

This particular Spoon Ring is monogrammed with "MGA"
*** Some of these Rings have various monogrammed initials from time to time, but can be removed upon request (though it does look kinda cool!)***

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed our new "Style Feature."
