History: The history of synthesizing gem materials dates back to the early 19th century when scientists and jewellers began experimenting with various chemical and physical processes. One of the earliest successful attempts was the synthesis of ruby, which was achieved by French chemist Auguste Verneuil.

Gold was generally used for a couple thousand years solely to create things such as jewelry and idols for worship. This was until around 1500 BC when the ancient empire of Egypt, which benefited greatly from its gold-bearing region, Nubia, made gold the first official medium of exchange for international trade.

White gold has been around since the turn of the 19th century, but it wasn't until the 1920s when it really started gaining popularity. At the time, platinum had been the preferred precious metal for jewellery. But it quickly became scarce as World War II raged on, and countries began to stockpile it for military use.

Enamel jewelry can be traced back to ancient civilizations like the Egyptians and Greeks, who mixed crushed glass with color agents such as cobalt or copper, then applying it to metals in painstaking details before permanently fusing it with heat.

Art Deco was an international decorative style than ran from 1919 to 1939. Known initially as "le style moderne" or "Jazz Moderne," the style received its current name in 1968, during a period of scholarly reappraisal.
