Art Deco Jewellery

The end of World War I saw big shifts in the social structure and the rise of a new wealthy upper class who had profited from the war and were now looking to spend their new money on luxuries such as jewellery.

The growing sense of optimism surrounding the end of the war was reflected in the jewellery of the day, along with new technologies and the influence of new artistic movements.

More daring designs started to flourish and some of the most typical features of the period include geometric shapes and symmetry, as well as ribbons, swirls and flowers.

There was also a strong overseas influence on many pieces as travel became easier and more accessible.

Yellow gold is also less prevalent in Art Deco pieces as white gold, platinum and silver started to gain popularity.
