The Art Deco Period

After WW1, with the US and Europe recovering from the horrors of The Great War, a new lust for life – and, of course, diamonds – was born. What better way to do this than in the 1920s jazz club, dressed in your finest and in the best jewels and clothes that money could buy paved the way for this age of decadence and excess.

The Art Deco period was a glamorous time characterised by exciting fashions, a surge of new technologies and the flapper girl.

Art Deco jewellery borrowed heavily from architecture, with bold, geometric patterns; straight lines, square, triangles, pyramids and arcs combined to create intricate and jaw dropping designs.
