Necklace Belle Epoque
Belle Epoque platinum diamond and pearl set Necklace.
European circa 1900
The Art Deco period is one of the most popular and enduring design periods in jewelry’s history. The style reflected the flamboyant and playful attitudes of the era and gave birth to forms and motifs that continue to live on today. While the Art Deco period covers the early 1920s through 1935, its influence extends all the way through the 1950s and 1960s and indeed to the current day. In sharp contrast to the jewels of preceding periods, Art Deco jewelry design is defined by geometric forms and bold colors. Diamonds were extremely popular in the period and were often accompanied by the bright colors of rubies, sapphires and emeralds. The use of black onyx in contrast with white diamonds and rock crystal is a defining style of the period. Some of the great jewelry houses, including Cartier, Tiffany and Van Cleef & Arpels, are considered to have created some of their most iconic work during the Art Deco period.
