Jewelry serves a dual purpose: to ornament the body and to send a message about status, power, and wealth. America's Gilded Age saw an explosion of new wealth unlike any since the Renaissance. As Americans grew rich, they embraced the symbols of power: houses, clothing, and jewelry. Meanwhile, America's middle class embraced jewelry with just as much enthusiasm, creating a vast jewelry consumer market that was unique in the history of the world.

In the early years of the Gilded Age (1865-1920), the very rich in America embraced modern design in all its eclectic diversity. "New" and "now" were buzzwords for the new millionaires and their houses. By the 1890s, however, the richest Americans began to reject modernism, imitating styles of the past far more literally than before. These newer, bigger, more luxurious houses incorporated the latest building technologies wrapped in an antique exterior.
