The Art Deco era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1940. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specifically cut to fit the design of the piece.
During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Etruscan Revival jewelry was first popularized during the early 1800s when an Etruscan tomb was discovered just outside of Rome. Upon its discovery, jewelers worked to imitate and understand the metalworking techniques with which the jewelry was made.
Not only was Etruscan jewelry a luxurious addition to the Victorian styles of the day. But it introduced new ideas and decorations. These Etruscan tombs contained jewelry adorned with long and flowing geometric lines and motifs, mythological imagery and scenery, and celestial elements. The techniques of repoussé, filigree, and granulation are all attributed to the Etruscans. Pools of light jewelry originated in China but grew in popularity during the 1920s following the end of the First World War.
This type of jewelry arose out of a desire for clean and modern lines and is a gorgeous expression of Gatsby-style fashion. These timeless pieces are very versatile due to the clear beads that often make up their focal points and are often composed of clear quartz or glass.
