Art, Not Intrinsic Value,
Governs Jewelry Fashion
UK design is the thing in the Jew-
ilry world today, with art as
the dominant force, reports the
Hrooklyn Eagle, and this Btate
of nfTairs retires nts an evolu
tion that Is welcomed with Joy by tho art
ist craftsman who believes that an orna
ment worthy of the name should possess
an art value that warrants Its being con
sidered as a thing of lasting beauty, not
simpiy represent a combination or precious
metal and gems proclaiming to all behold-
ers tho expenditure of so miny dollars and
Intrinsic value Is no longer the govern-
lng motive In tho selection of a piece of
Jowelry by those whoso tastes have been
trained to appreciate the art manifested In
Its production as In a beautiful picture or
a piece of bric-a-brac. Many times the
real cost or worth of an ornament. Judged
by commercial standards, Is now cheerfully
paid because of the brains and the Idea
embodled In the production.
"Ten years ago we would have had no
sale for such an ornament as this," said
an artist-Jeweler, pointing to an equisite
pendant of tho art nouveau type, with a
beautifully modeled female head in the
center and perfectly matched pearls and
diamonds embellishing the frame of rose
gold. "Fortunately many people are conir
lng to a better appreciation of the true
mission of Jewelry and refuse to accept
that which does not conform to artistic
standards. We are becoming better edu
cated along art lines, care less for showy
things and more for those that represent
artistic creation, not merely skillful work
manship and display. Pretty soon men
and women of refinement and culture will
no more think of buying a piece of Jewelry
that Is Inartistic than they would purchaso
poorly executed picture. Drains tell In
the Jewelry productions of today as they
have not told heretofore In this new and
prosperous country. Tho form of an orna
ment Is no longer subordinated to the Jew
els that embellish It; it Is the gems that
are made subservient to the design. I do
not mean that flamboyant Jewelry Is des
tined to disappear entirely and all at once;
rather that the ornament that Is artistic
as well as Intrinsically vnlunblo will be
more and more conspicuous.
"The design for a brooch or other orna
ment is as carefully sketched as the draw
ing fcr a picture. When the artist's work
has been passed upon and the form se
lected tho services of tho goldsmith and
Jeweler aro enlisted, and If, as happens in
many of these new designs, a touch of en
ameling Is added, that part of tho work Is
assigned to a master of tho craft. Artistic
Jewelry represents the production of spe
cialists, as does the best work in other
lines where art enters Into tho manufac
ture. We no longer give an ornament to
one man and let Mm carry out the design
In its entirety. Thus we have a change
not alone In result, but In method. This
evolution is one certain to appeal to every
lover of beautiful things, and to the
Jeweler who la concerned with art as well
as the commercial aspect of his craft It Is
one of the happiest of auguries for the fu
ture of the Jewelry business In this coun
try. "With regard to styles In Jewelry," con
tinued this exponent of the new art, "pearlp
lead everything else this season. Tarls is
pearl mad, and tle prominence given to
this lustrous Jewel is in keeping with the
development of the artistic Idea in lewelry,
for the pearl makes no special appeal to
those who like showy ornaments. In order
to accentuate the luster and coloring of fine
pearls we frequently set them In a frame
of diamonds, and herein note another differ
ence: Formerly the pearl served as a frame
for the diamond. For many people there
is a murked fascination about pearls, and
It may bo Interesting to note that they or"
the only Jewels used In a natural Btate.
Diamonds, rubles, sapphires and all thr
other gema are polished, cut, altered; the
peari preserves ine rorm in wntch it was I
taken from the oyster or murel shell. I
"Perfect pearls are to rare that they com
mand high prices, but pearls of Irregular ,
'"e have asxumcd unusual Importance In j
years ami are known as baroque 1
Some pecimcns of baroque pearl '
"d as high as ll.OOU. They entci
t rompoKitlon of distinctive orn-
iftent lines possessing a unique cbar
. for the aim of this nw development
Is the production of designs that shall in
dicate individual selection, not look as it
they were all poured out of one mold
From the favorite detdgns that have stood
the test et ages an ornament is evolved
by the combined talent and skill of the
artist and craftsmen In which originality
of treatment Is the keynote and artistic
blending of form and gem itcc ration and
color effect the result. Reauty and art
value, not tho value In dollars and cent
of the gold and Jewels represented, will
guide the educated purchaser of fine Jewelry
in the future, and I ventur to predict
that the number of such purchasers will
Increase with each succeeding Year. While
the pearl Just now reigns supreme, the
precious gems that have held sway for
ages have not been eclipsed, and they, too,
enter Into the production of Jewelry that
represents the best that artist aud artisan
working together can evolve."
As a last word the Jeweler added: "Brains
and Ideas command high price la our
business, as In every other, consequent 1
this fine art Jewelry costs more than the
ordinary type.
Hut It Is worth It.'
Good for Sick People
The Fort Scott (Kan.) Monitor relates an
amusing story of an Insane doctor In Hiat
ville. Hp was tried bv the troli;itr cmiri
and ajudged Insane. The asylum as not
prepared to receive him. and so for some
weeks he was confined in the county lail
Recently a delegation nt ltlT..ra trnm
Hiatvlllo appeared before the probate judge
an(' asked that the doctor might be sent
home, pending his admission to the asylum,
"We navn an unusual amount of Bickncss
,n our vicinity," said the Bpokesman; "we
nnve great commence in our old doctor, and
wp want him to come back and treat our
sl'k." The request was granted, and the
0,11 ('0'tor went home to tak up his prac-
"p- " should be explained, perhaps, that
",e ,ur an" ,wvn annum neavlly. and
It was believed that he would be all right
If he left whisky alone. Hut the fact re
mains that a man who has been adjudged
Insane In the regular course of legal pro
cedure Is turned loose without legal pro
cedure to take up the practice of a pro
fession which deals with the life and health
of the people of hlB community. And there
is something very suggestive of Dogberry
In the admonition of the probate Judge to
the victim, that If he went insane again
(that Is. f he took to drink) he would be
clapped Into the asylum quicker than a cat
can bat Its eye.
The Man in the Moon
New York Times: "Yes, Just at pres

because I'm down to my last quarter."
"Therein you differ from the average
man," remarked the morning star. "He is
often down to his last quarter because be
was out late at night."
