At the foot of Mount Vesuvius, just 10 miles south of Naples, lies the fishing town of Torre del Greco. Long known for their carved shell cameos, Torre del Greco jewelers also work with gold and gems, using time-honored techniques such as lost-wax casting. In lost-wax casting, a jeweler carves his or her design in wax, and then forms a mold around the model. When molten metal is poured into the mold, the wax melts away, leaving a perfect reproduction of the original model.

Did you know that name for the deep blue-green stone we call turquoise is actually based on misinformation? It’s from the French word for Turkish, because European traders found the stone at Turkish bazaars and assumed it was mined nearby, although what they found was most likely from present-day Iran. Nevertheless, Turkish jewelers are known for their inventive designs, as evidenced by the ornate treasures of the Ottoman Topkapi Palace.

Renaissance meets Art Nouveau in these pearl and gemstone earrings. Art Nouveau flourished in Europe during the turn of the 20th century. Its streamlined, geometric shapes influenced everything from advertising to architecture, furniture to fashion. In Rome, an architect named Gino Coppede designed an entire neighborhood in the Art Nouveau style, right down to the street lamps. The "Quartiere Coppede" still looks much as it did when the architect died in 1927.

For 400 years, Ottoman sultans called Istanbul’s magnificent Topkapi Palace home. As many as 4,000 people lived within its walls, which enclosed courtyards, mosques, and even a room called the Eye of the Sultan where the ruler could watch council debates undetected. The palace’s Imperial Treasury is where Ottoman opulence is on full display. These faceted green onyx earrings are inspired by the jewel-encrusted armor, mirrors, and even book covers found there.
