The Vintage Romanticism of Art Deco Jewellery: What is it and why do you need it?
The Art Deco movement made itself widely known to the world in the Roaring 20s, extending to the 1930s. Popularized by the likes of Coco Chanel and Jean Patou, the ‘Style Moderne’ was a favourite of the crème de la crème of society.
Back then, Art Deco jewellery celebrated the optimism and innovation of the post-World War period. It sought inspiration from a range of sources, including Cubism, Futurism, Constructivism, and especially modern industrial design. It was also heavily influenced by the Bauhaus Art School in Germany and the craft traditions of ancient cultures.
Art Deco Jewellery reminds us of a time when society was breaking the strictures of the past, embracing a newfound liberation. The women too discarded their corsets, fripperies, and submissiveness all in one go. Their understated dresses and bold life choices called for the accentuation of Art Deco necklaces, rings, bracelets, brooches, and more.
What is Art Deco Jewellery:
Breaking away from the wild naturalism of Art Nouveau, or the bows and garlands of Belle Epoque, Art Deco jewellery has a unique fierceness. Most pieces are characterized by their geometric form, bold use of gemstones, and striking designs. From the signature milgrain effect to the use of chevron, edges, and sunbursts, the pieces often have one-of-a-kind traits that separate them from the rest. Today, this vintage style has become a timeless classic and continues to earn the patronage of discerning jewellery connoisseurs.
