Art Deco in Jewelry Industry

You must have heard of the word Art Deco in a jewelry store or in a commercial for a jewelry brand more than once. As most of you know, the Art Deco is an historical era of cultural motivation. In the 1920s in Paris, a number of events took place which collectively indicated a need for modernizing. The Art Deco jewelers of today borrow inspirations from the dominant designs of that era to produce vintage-themed contemporary jewelry.

Typical Characteristics of This Style of Jewelry

The Art Deco jewelry of today bears heavy resemblance with those of 1920s. Common design elements are the chief characteristics of these kind of jewelry. As a result, you will see a lot of old cuts in gemstones in this section. Old European cut, rose cut, Calibre, etc., are prevalent in jewelry of this era. Platinum pieces are also more dominant in the Art Deco jewelry than in other sections. This owes to the fact that white gold and platinum were prominent choices in jewelry at the time. 

Imported Designs

It’s not just the gemstone cuts and precious metals that set Art Deco jewelry apart from the contemporary ones. The biggest point of distinction between these jewelry and their modern counterparts is design. The Art Deco jewelry that we see today bear geometric patterns, filigree and complex cut-out motives that were hallmarks of that era. The designs also have a lot of room for colored gemstones. 

The Modern Makes

Art Deco jewelry today are designed using waxing molds which help attain the complex filigree work that were the chief characteristics of vintage pieces. However, the reproduced versions bear a softer, milder appearance than the starker originals. Aside from that, the inspired pieces are available in white metals as well as gold and rose gold metals.
