Here are a magnificent pair of Art Deco onyx and diamond earrings from the 1920’s hand made in platinum. Embracing a cluster design at the bottom of the earlier Victorian and Edwardian eras, it also has a wonderful geometric design typical of Art Deco earrings and other pieces of jewellery from this time. Art Deco jewellery is characterised by elegant angular designs, quite often in platinum or gold or a combination of the two metals. In a time that was just after The Great War (World War One) which was thought to never be repeated as the war to end all wars, and before the Great Depression, the Art Deco period was one of decadence and delight. Platinum was often used as it is pure white in colour and the most precious of all the metals used in jewellery. Not only does it always remain pure white, but it also has the distinct advantage of being able to be drawn into a fine wire allowing for very precise and intricate detail, yet still be strong enough to hold any gemstones set into the jewellery.
