No doubt, Art Deco jewelry is fun. In the first place, this ERA provided some of the most popular styles and jewelry of all times. As far back as the early 1920’s, Women wore tight clothes and threw off their corsets to become Flappers.
First and foremost, the Art Deco time period started as early as 1915. At the same time, this style emerged shortly after World War 1. Meanwhile, after the war there was a lot of confidence. Also, in the mid 1900’s, there was a revival in styles from this time period. And as of today, there continues to be a strong interest in jewelry from this ERA.
Art Deco Material and Style
After World War 1, extravagant and opulence pieces were popular choices in fashion and jewelry. In addition, materials such as chromium and platinum in geometric shapes and sizes were the trend. Diamonds, Emeralds, Rubies and Sapphires showed up in colorful jewelry pieces.

In the same fashion, some of the popular jewelry designers and manufacturers from that time period were:
- Gerard Sandoz
- Van Cleef & Arpels
In my opinion, the Retro Quartz, Rutile Sapphire 14k Yellow and 14k White Gold Pin set bring the style to the Flapper ERA. This original, handmade one-of-a-kind style is unique in this bright and colorful design. Set in 14k Yellow and White Gold, these large Pins have 24 round Sapphires, 48 oval Sapphires and 2 round cabochon Rutile Crystals. Since brooches are one of the hottest trends on the planet, this stunning pin will be the perfect addition to your wardrobe.

Certainly, jewelry with falling vertical strands are popular styles from this ERA. Long earrings, necklaces and bracelets are also favored from this time period.
The 1940 Vintage open work Diamond Dangle Earrings are the perfect accessory to play up any outfit. Set in Platinum, 10 Brilliant Cut Diamonds make this style luxurious.
As always, I welcome your comments.
