Art deco – the most influential international architectural and decorative movement of the 20th century that started before the first world war and continued throughout the 1940s. One of my personal favorite type of vintage jewelry. It featured expensive materials such as ivory, marble, mahogany, and silk. It got its name from the very famous International Exhibition Of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris, France, in 1925, where this style was exhibited for the first time.
During the second world war the interest in this style slowly started to fade away, but it made its quick return again in the 1960s.
Art deco appeared in architecture, furniture, fine art, and jewelry. It’s characteristics are geometrical, linear, zigzag and trapezoidal forms, usually in bold colors such as yellow, green, blue and red in combination with black and gold.
When it comes to art deco rings from that era, there is one word that can describe it, and it’s – bold. It looked nothing like what we were used to before. Art deco defined rings and other jewelry in geometrical shapes such as triangles, rectangles, squares and circles with stones such as jade, corals and pearls. In addition to yellow gold and silver, a new metal appeared which is platinum.
