The Art Deco period of the 1920's influenced so much. It even influenced the design of cars, the architecture of buildings such as the Chrysler Building, clothing, and of course jewellery. There is nothing quite like a vintage Art Deco bracelet from the 1920's adorning your wrist.
The jewellers of the Art Deco period used wonderful geometric shapes and designs from leading jewellery houses such as Cartier, Tiffany & Co., and Van Cleef & Arpels that inspired other jewellers worldwide as well as the public alike.
Platinum was often the metal of choice as it could be drawn into a very fine wire yet still be able to retains its strength and remain a pure white colour. More often the jewellery of the 1920's was made with 18ct gold to add to the colour of the piece.
Many of the Art Deco jewellers took their inspiration from the exciting discoveries in Egypt. This was specially seen during the discovery of King Tutankhamen's tomb. This resulted in what is referred to as the 'Egyptian revival". The resulting Art Deco pieces made at this time are nothing short of extraordinary.
An Art Deco bracelet will often have precious gemstones such as diamonds, rubies, and sapphires. Black onyx was often used since it complements the pure white of platinum.
