You can find a long history for Art Deco Jewelry. This style of jewelry can be dated back to the mid 1920s. This type of art was inspired by the “Exposition Internationales des Arts Decoratifs and Industriels Modernes”. This movement took place in Paris, France in the mid 1920s, with the term “Art Deco” not becoming the popular term until many years later in the 1960s.
Jewelry in the Art Deco style has very few curves, but has abundant angular forms and straight lines. Starting out more delicate in its design, Art Deco jewelry moved toward the trend of blockier, bolder styled pieces termed “Art Moderne”.
