The Origins of Art Deco Jewelry

Art Deco Design

Art deco was a movement that began in the 1920s and spanned through the 1930s. It started in one of the most fashion forward cities on earth, Paris. Some would call this design style eclectic and artistic.

But the true essence of art deco is described to be glamorous and elegant while being functional and modern at the same time. Aside from jewelry, the art deco style can also be incorporated into architecture, visual arts, fashion, interior and industrial design. It’s a concept that expanded throughout many nations during the World War II era.

Through the years, the popularity of art deco has gone through a roller coaster. It started to decline in the 1940s, but later was revived in the 1960s and later again in the 1980s. Today, you can still see many of the art deco influence in architecture, fashion and art throughout the world.

I love art deco. I did an article on art deco interior design for another website, so I'm very familiar with the era.

I always think of Art Deco as angular, stylized, more masculine than feminine, Jazz age. You have chosen well. I find Arte Nouveau to be more feminine, personally. Perhaps an article on that style would not go amiss.
