1925-1940

Art Deco

Art Deco jewellery emerged at the 1925 Paris exhibition of Decorative Arts at which only designs independent of the European historical tradition might be shown.  The designs seen were bold and strongly geometric in character, using precious & coloured stones set with black onyx, jade and lapis lazuli in previously unknown combinations.
