It was the age of Jazz, prohibition and the Charleston. Queen Victoria was no longer on the throne, but countless ideals and influences from her age still remained. It was the 1920’s and the world was about the see a profound new style that would chance history for ever. The style would be bold, lavish and elegant and was about to radically change the art world, leaving a lasting impression that can still be seen today.
Gemondo have a beautiful selection of Art Deco jewellery with luxurious designs featuring Marcasites, Enamel, Spinel, Onyx and Opals.
The Art Deco design made vast use of triangular and geometric shapes, employing symmetry and repetition. The movement attempted to combine mass production with high-quality art and design.There was a fundamental difference which made the Art Deco period so extraordinary, the same designs seen within the jewellery being created were being engineered into new buildings, ships and even household appliances.
Colour played an important role in the Art Deco movement: everything became bold, vibrant and vivid. The way in which colour was applied was often dramatic and reacted to the light. Gemstones such as Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and coral became popular for this reason.
