Circa 1890 Jewelry

Circa 1890 marries old world tradition, historical meaning, and symbolism with contemporary design elements. With an ardent appreciation for 19th century detail, artist Patricia Baranyai began designing her vintage style collection in 1991, using inspiration from the turn of the century combined with contemporary fashion influences. The collection ranges from traditional to modern-vintage, always incorporating a touch of yesteryear.

Using traditional methods that were used for costume jewelry making during the late 1800s to the early 1900s, each design in the Circa 1890 collection is hand soldered using die struck brass components. Circa 1890 jewelry created with Austrian Swarovski crystals, Czech crystals, gemstones from around the world, Mother of Pearl, and freshwater pearls. All the jewelry is handcrafted, in house, and guaranteed for quality and durability. Each piece of jewelry is finished in antique gold and coated with a protective jeweler’s lacquer for long-lasting wear.
