The Peace Sign Trend Returns
Nowadays, when it comes to jewelry, the most commonly used peace sign of all is the one coming from
the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. This model has revolutionized the world of jewelry, more and more people being interested in this simple,
but very interesting type of accessories. You can buy
peace sign earrings, gloves, scarves, rings, necklaces, bracelets, pins and even moccasins or bags.
Good examples of why this piece sign thing has turned into a real trend are film festivals and social
events as such. Designers create whole lines with peace symbols, so that people have where to choose from. Although jewelry with peace signs on
it has this hippie touch, it does not necessarily mean that people are returning to the hippie fashion. Jewelry with
peace symbols has a new approach, new models are being released on the market, some more elegant and chic than others.
The symbol used for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament is the most popular among fashion designers
today. However, it is not the only peace symbol used in this industry and known to the entire world. Peace is also suggested by signs such as
doves carrying olive branches or both of these elements taken separately, these having their origins in ancient times. As for more
recent such symbols, the one mentioned in the mentioned in the beginning is completed by the V hand sign.
The success of the peace sign jewelry is somehow unbelievable both among ordinary people and among
celebrities. From ten-year-olds or grandmothers to the first family of the United Sates of America, everybody is fond of this kind of
accessories and appreciates the aesthetic value of this peace sign jewelry and other accessories. It seems like there are fewer and fewer
people who do not have at least a
peace sign necklace, a pin or some peace sign earrings at home.
The piece sign can now be found in all kinds of jewelry. Therefore, you
can find plastic peace sign accessories or you can run into this symbol
with some of the most sophisticated jewels released on the market today.
In the past, there were a lot of comments when people decided to wear
this kind of jewelry, but fashion today allows this new trend without no
inhibitions and no comments whatsoever. In fact, this retro
peace sign trend is very well received nowadays from a social point
of view, too, not only from the pure artistic one, promoting values and
models in a very stylish, contemporary and everyday way.

All the pieces shown on our website are Piro original, handmade pieces.
Piro art jewelry is entirely handmade in sterling silver and 14 karat gold or 18 karat gold.
None of the pieces by Piro are made by the process of casting in which easy duplication of design pieces is possible.
Even if Piro makes a similar piece, because it is handmade, the piece will still be a little bit different, and may
be based on a similar design piece, but may have a substitute of different gemstones, and the detail may be a bit different, for example.
But Piro can always create something new or something similar.
Many art jewelry pieces, and most art jewelry pieces that Piro created throughout the 1990's and 2000's were made
in both, sterling silver, and 14 karat or 18 karat gold rather than just in sterling silver or just in 14 karat gold.
This website also shows some
new art jewelry pieces.

One of the most creative things that an artist or jewelry artist can do is create and fuse fine art like surrealism into jewelry.
Art Jewelry by Piro is Handmade, Created by Torch, which Melts Metal in Free Form, Rather than Made from Casting Molds, which
Prohibit Unique Designs for Each Piece
Piro art jewelry is unique and is made in a unique way.
Every jewelry piece is created in free form and is a work of art.
Piro art jewelry is handmade even if that jewelry is created in silver and gold.
Piro jewelry is created with a torch, which melts metal in free form making each and every design unique, a little bit
like a painter paints a painting with a brush where the torch would be the brush and the silver and gold
metals would be the oil paint, and not made in casting where the mold repeats the design prohibiting unique designs
for every indiv idual piece. And just like an original oil painting a Piro piece cannot be duplicated exactly. With torch soldering, each piece,
even if it is based on a similar design can be a bit different and will be itself one of a kind.
The Piro art jewelry is made in sterling silver and 14 karat or 18 karat gold, and sometimes in all gold.
The designs often have facet cut gemstones such as:
peridot, green tourmaline, pink tourmaline, or any other different colors of
tourmaline. Other designs sometimes have
cabochons such as
opals. Other materials and gemstones may also include:
mother pearl, and
ebony wood, which may go in silver and or gold in any combination.
The gemstones in Piro work can double up as two amethyst stones or two blue topaz stones, for example, or a combination of
amethyst and peridot,
citrine and peridot,
amethyst and blue topaz, or
blue topaz and peridot.
Piro art jewelry also includes
combination pieces such as
ring pendants, and some unique creative pieces such as the
One of the unique design work by Piro are the
ring pendants, which double up as not only rings but also as pendants,
such as the piece above in sterling silver, 14 karat gold,
peridot and glass.
How to Get Started With a Jewellery Collection
Jewellery has the power to make the wearer feel glamorous irrespective of its cost, size or design.
From the simplest
pendants, to the most elaborate
each piece communicates something unique and special about the personal style of the indiv idual who is wearing it. Unlike clothing,
jewellery also often appreciates in value as the years go by, meaning that it is also a good investment for the future.
How do you start a collection though? Well, you can’t just go out and buy items at random; there are several steps to follow in order to achieve the best result.
Evaluate your Personal Sense of Style
The first thing that you need to consider is what types of jewellery goes with the image that you wish to portray.
A good way of gauging this is to take a look at the clothing that you wear and think what it says about your personality,
for example if you wear
shoes then you might be edgy and subversive but if you are a fan of Clarks shoes then you might be more reserved.
Once you have decided which aspects of your character you wish your jewellery to reflect then you are ready to hit the shops and see what is on offer.
Hitting the Shops
When you first start frequenting jewellery shops to look for potential purchases,
it is important not to rush into anything. Take your time and examine each item thoroughly before opening your wallet.
It is advisable to start with items that are unlikely to go out of style.
These could be
rings, or even
sculptural jewellery pieces;
it doesn’t matter, just as long as you think that they are likely to still be in fashion ten years down the line.
Nowadays the Internet enables jewellery collectors to browse a huge range of pieces from the comfort of their own homes.
This increases the amount of items that they can choose from by a hundredfold but also holds a number of pitfalls.
The first of these is the ease with which collectors can get carried away and purchase the first item that they see when browsing jewellery online.
Remember: the Internet is a big place and there are plenty of pieces to consider.
The second is the temptation to go for cheap and nasty jewellery.
The web is filled with sites offering cut-price bracelets and necklaces but it is important to keep in mind that if something seems too good to be true then it usually is.
Finally it is easy not to notice how much it costs to have an item of jewellery shipped over to you when you are buying from a shop overseas.
Remember to take into consideration the shipping fee when making your purchase.
Take Care of your Jewellery
Once you have decided what style of jewellery you like and began to establish your collection, the next step is to learn how to take care of it.
It is important to find out how to clean it in a way that is not likely to damage it.
There are different rules for cleaning different precious materials, for example diamonds can be cleaned by immersing the stone in a solution of ethyl alcohol or ammonia.
If you are unsure of how to clean an item without damaging it then it is advisable to pay an expert to do it for you.
There is no point eagerly expanding your collection only to ruin it by attempting to clean the pieces using a method that is going to leave them in ruins.
It is also essential to pick jewellery to buy that is unlikely to break, as there is nothing worse than amassing a huge collection of broken jewellery.
Above All, Enjoy your Collection
The most important thing to remember is to have fun with your jewellery and wear it with pride,
as the confidence with which you sport it will add to your look just as much as the pieces themselves.
Many people build up their collections throughout the course of their lives and then have the pleasure of
handing them down to their children so each piece that you buy will not only help to establish your sense of
style but it will also provide a precious reminder of your life for your loved ones to treasure.
