(1920's - 1930's) Art Deco is a shortened form of the term International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts, and it first appeared in France in 1925. Jewellery was fashioned mainly in either white gold or platinum, and featured geometric, symmetrical designs with an industrial feel. Art Deco represented such things as luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress. The economy was booming and jazz blossoming, just as Prohibition heightened the urge to cast aside Victorian restraints.
Featuring African, Oriental, Egyptian, Persian and Islamic influences, Art Dec designs were bold, sharp and more masculine than those of previous periods.
The pieces featured are indicative of the style of Art Deco jewellery.
