Art Deco

Art Deco is a style that originated in Paris and was popular from the mid-1920s until the late-1930s. Art Deco pieces are characterized by geometric lines and angles, with very few curves. The style reflected the flamboyant and playful attitudes of the era and gave birth to forms and motifs that continue to live on today. While the Art Deco period covers the early 1920s through 1935, its influence extends all the way through the 1950s and 1960s and indeed to the current day.

In addition to jewelry, the Art Deco Era influenced many famous buildings, art, cars, and even radio designs.
