What is Art Deco jewellery?
[/vc_column_text][advanced_separator position=”alignleft” size=”sep-large” color=”sep-dark”][vc_column_text css_animation=”top-to-bottom”]Popularized in the mid 1920s, the Art Deco style influenced the visual designs of everything from architecture to clothing. In jewelry, this artistic style waxed and waned throughout history but continues to inspire designers. Some consumers seek out authentic vintage and antique pieces from 1920 to 1935 for collections, and others purchase contemporary fashion jewellery featuring Art Deco styles simply because they like the patterns and looks. Several different cultures, along with societal changes during the Art Deco era, influenced the characteristic designs and materials found in this type of jewellery.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”no-margin”]
History of Art Deco
[/vc_column_text][advanced_separator position=”alignleft” size=”sep-large” color=”sep-dark”][vc_column_text css_animation=”top-to-bottom”]The first Art Deco styles emerged in the early 1900s during the age of industrialization. Art imitated machinery by implementing geometric shapes, parallel lines, and symmetrical patterns. Art Deco broke away from its predecessor, Art Nouveau, which featured organic themes inspired by nature.
The World’s Fair held in Paris, France in 1925 showcased the stylistic designs of the Modern Industrial era and made Art Deco a popular fashion for jewelry. The term for this style is actually a shortening of the French phrase for “decorative arts” as it appeared in the name of the event.
In the early 20th century, Art Deco represented technological progress, fashion, and luxury. In modern times, this style is representative of the past and continues to inspire contemporary jewelry designers.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”no-margin”]
Art Deco Jewellery
[/vc_column_text][advanced_separator position=”alignleft” size=”sep-large” color=”sep-dark”][vc_column_text css_animation=”top-to-bottom”]Fine jewellery of the era featured diamonds of varying sizes and colorful gemstones. Ruby, sapphire, and emerald were popular gemstones due to their vibrant and contrasting colors. Geometric cuts, such as emerald, Asscher, and trilliant, were commonly used to match the angular designs of Art Deco.
Diamond baguettes filled entire pieces of jewellery for sparkling effects. Designers also used colorful stones, such as jade, pearl, onyx, coral, and carnelian. White metals became more popular for their futuristic appeal, so platinum and white gold jewelry is prevalent in Art Deco styles.
Art Deco jewellery is representative of the tremendous changes that occurred during the age of industrialization. Society turned toward machines to assist in everyday operations, historical discoveries were made in different civilizations, and women claimed their independence by gaining suffrage. The geometrical shapes and symmetrical styles that defined Art Deco continue to influence contemporary designers in jewellery, interior designs, and all forms of art.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_button button_type=”flat” title=”Check Our Art Deco Products” target=”_self” color=”btn-warning” size=”wpb_regularsize” fa_icon=”Defaults-th” icon_position=”left” text_size=”14″ href=”http://188.8.131.52/~jemsofre/product-tag/art-deco/”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Beautiful Vintage Pieces now at Jems!
This beautiful vintage range is inspired by the Art Deco era, popularized in the mid 1920s. Characteristics of the Art Deco style are geometric shapes, as circles, squares, triangles, rectangles and other polygons. Patterns feature sharp angles rather than smooth curves, and symmetry was an important factor in many designs, where woman adorned themselves with bold, colorful pieces of Jewellery. Read more about Art Deco. This Art Deco Range has got real natural Gemstones (as Garnets, Blue Topaz etc) and Marcasites, which are quite significant for that era. The pieces are all set in Sterling Silver (925). Marcasite jewelry is jewelry made from pyrite, not, as the name suggests, from marcasite. Pyrite is similar to marcasite, but more stable and less brittle. Marcasite jewellery has been made since the time of the Ancient Greeks. It was particularly popular in the eighteenth century, the Victorian era and with Art Nouveau jewellery designers. It is frequently made by setting small pieces of pyrite into silver.[/vc_column_text][vc_images_carousel images=”7236,7237,7238,7239,7240,7241,7242,7243,7244,7245,7246,7247,7248,7249,7250,7251,7252″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self” speed=”3000″ slides_per_view=”4″ autoplay=”yes” hide_pagination_control=”yes” title=”Art Deco Sterling Silver Jewellery” img_size=”thumbnail”][product_categories_slider items=”4″ limit=”12″ orderby=”date” order=”asc” slide_speed=”800″ auto_play=”6000″ scroll_per_page=”true” navigation=”true” pagination=”false” category_id=”196″ parent_only=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
