History: The earliest diamonds were found in India in 4th century BC, although the youngest of these deposits were formed 900 million years ago. A majority of these early stones were transported along the network of trade routes that connected India and China, commonly known as the Silk Road.

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.

In the early 1800s, Englishmen William Hyde Wollaston and Smithson Tennant discovered how to make platinum malleable , effectively opening the door to platinum's extensive commercial applications. Platinum was discovered in Russia in 1822, and shortly thereafter, it began to be fashioned into decorative chains.

The Art Deco design era originated in France in the 1910s, just before World War I, and continued through the 1930s
