Art Deco Jewelry

Between 1920 and 1940, the world of design was revolutionized by the Art Deco movement. Everything from architecture and painting to clothing and of course jewelry design was invigorated by the kinetic energy of the times. Modern technology allowed for unprecedented precision and the exactness of the angular geometric designs was magical.

During this design period, jewelers discovered new techniques for working with platinum. Along with this, new diamond cuts provided more variety to jewelry designs with stunning detail. These pieces often featured precise symmetrical patterns such as sunbursts accented with round and baguette diamonds.

Bold colors reigned supreme with black and white being de rigueur. Onyx paired with diamonds in platinum was one of the favorite combinations of materials and made for a dramatic look with maximum contrast.
