Jewelry Still Lifes

20 Jun

Increasingly, I’ve been coming across jewels photographed in funny places. Rather than being shot on the body, mannequin, bust or other human-resembling form, they’re positioned against other objects to comprise still life compositions.

Any jewelry stylists out there to chime in? Is jewelry staging the new styling?

Erstwhile Jewelry Company out of NYC has a knack for placing vintage baubles just so on photographs that harken back to earlier decades. It’s not surprising that the company (family business) loves story telling since it dates back 1887 Odessa, Russia.

Their blog is just as diverse and history-rich as their wares, so check it out when you’re in the mood for a tad bit more than the jewelry porn we’ve come to expect from flash sale sites and other e-commerce destinations.
