This listing is for the item only.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. Antique Turkish, Islamic, and Bedouin jewelry all share similar ancestral and stylistic roots, and influenced each other through trade for many, many years.This can largely be attributed to the expansion of the Ottoman Empire, which valued art and craftsmanship, and fostered the continuation of Arabic arts and calligraphy. The reign of the Ottomans in the 16th and 17th centuries introduced Turkish designs to Islamic motifs and the nomadic Bedouin culture, melding a range of styles into beautiful arabesques; repeating rhythmic patterns, which often feature geometric floral and organic designs. Repoussé began as an ancient metalworking technique dating as far back as the 3rd century BC, involving malleable metal that was hammered onto the reverse side to create an image on the front. Examples are found all over the world; Greece, Egypt, and even the Hopewell periods in the American southeast. Reverse side hammering was also used to add detail to the front, creating intricate patterns using grooves, indentations, and channeling. The piece was then carefully polished to create a hollow, eye-catching treasure. This item is in the category "Jewelry & Watches\Vintage & Antique Jewelry\Bracelets & Charms".
