What Is Art Deco Jewellery?

Date Posted:23 April 2023 

Art deco jewellery explained - living, breathing and wearing art

Art Deco jewellery borrowed heavily from architecture, with bold, geometric patterns; straight lines, squares, triangles, pyramids and arcs combined to create intricate and jaw-dropping designs. Art Deco rings and jewelry are easy to identify by their stark, geometric designs and textures. The elaborate designs exhibit mathematical elegance, and often showcase fewer diamonds than other jewellery eras. Art Deco, short for Arts Décoratifs, is characterized by rich colors, bold geometry, and decadent detail work. Having reached the height of its popularity in the 1920s, '30s, and '40s, the style still brings in glamour, luxury, and order with symmetrical designs in exuberant shapes.

Some significant characteristics of Art Deco include:

  • Symmetry
  • Layered shapes
  • Intricate line art
  • Rectilinear geometry
  • Aerodynamic curves
  • Metallic colors like gold and chrome.
