Emerging in the roaring 20s, the Art Deco era reflected a new, forward thinking perspective, spurred on by the admiration of modern machinery.
Art Deco Architecture, Design and Jewelry
The Art Deco style was characterized by bold and daring new forms. In architecture, Art Deco’s emphasis on progress and power can be seen in the geometric, soaring design of the iconic Empire State building, while in fashion, loose flowing flapper dresses symbolized the liberty and independence of the era. In Art Deco jewelry, these ideals manifested themselves in the use of futuristic motifs and sleek geometric angles, as well as dazzling designs that reflected the economic abundance of the period.
