Chain store fashion doesn’t tend to be high quality or unique. People today have larger wardrobes, but many pieces are mass produced and made from inferior fabrics.
As a result, there’s a growing demand for quality and individuality, leading to a higher demand for quality vintage fashion – and jewellery. Carla Caruso of Jeweller Magazine says “There is something magical about a jewellery piece with a past; wearing one is almost like being able to travel back in time to a bygone era.”
Art Deco jewellery is thought to have originated in Paris in 1925, after an art exhibition featuring futurism and cubism. Egypt was also an influence – the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in 1923 captured people’s imaginations.
Art Deco style is comprised of curved pieces, angular lines, bold colours and geometric shapes. Long earrings and necklaces, cocktail rings, intricate filigree and tassels are also typical.
Jewellery pieces were often made from diamonds, white gold and new metals like platinum, by major fashion houses including Tiffany & Co, Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier.
Though Art Deco style is celebrated in modern movies like The Great Gatsby (directed by Baz Luhrmann, 2013) and Grace of Monaco (directed by Olivier Dahan, 2014), distinctive Art Deco jewellery does not necessarily appeal to everybody.
