Art deco : discover all the attractions of art deco jewelry with a timeless style

Art Deco in Jewelry

After Art Nouveau, in the early years of the 20th century, natural forms simplified and synthesized, announcing the geometric figures of the 1920s: this was the beginning of Art Deco jewelry.

The Art Deco jewelry is sober and tidy, with colors either Black and White or vivid such as green, coral or blue that we find on beautiful art deco rings.

Jewelers were inspired by the Empire and Louis XVI styles to create art deco sets often made of platinum to create thinner and more flexible frames. The art deco jewelry was light, delicate, worked in ajours. Often set with diamonds, the main motif was often stylized.

Art Deco: the quintessence of style

Après l’Art nouveau, dans les premières années du XXème siècle, les formes naturelles se simplifient et se synthétisent, annonçant les figures géométriques des années 1920 : c'est le début des bijoux Art déco.

Le Bijou Art déco est sobre et rangé, avec des couleurs soit Black and White soit vives tels le vert, le corail ou encore le bleu que l'on retrouve sur de magnifiques bagues art déco.
Les bijoutiers s’inspirent des styles Empire et Louis XVI pour réaliser des parures art déco souvent composées de platine pour réaliser des montures plus fines et plus souples. Les bijoux art déco étaient légers, délicats, travaillés en ajours. Souvent sertis de diamants, le motif principal était souvent stylisé.

Art Deco Jewelry: The contrast of materials

Black and white, onyx and crystal introduce sharper contrasts as in many art deco brooches, while the use of lapis lazuli, jade and coral creates colorful jewelry as on art deco bracelets.

Designers like to combine matte and shiny, transparent and opaque to create art deco jewelry that is highly contrasted by colors, materials, but also themes. The geometric shapes, stemming from the cubist movement, give clean and sharp plans that favor the new sizes of stones: thus the art deco ring is often set with baguette diamonds, trapezoidal ...

In parallel with the rigor of cubism, designers were largely inspired by the Far East, particularly China, borrowing materials such as jade and themes such as masks.


The Great Jewelers of Art Deco Jewelry

The naturalist vein persists with the presence of flowers more or less stylized on many jewelry. The jeweler could thus give free rein to his taste for color mixtures. The Tutti Frutti vogue favored by the House of Cartier offered sumptuous art deco jewelry.

The polychromy of the 1920s was followed by the monochromatic jewelry of the 1930s represented by works by Raymond Templier or Jean Després. At the end of the 1920s and the beginning of the 1930s, the latter produced white gold and glass ornaments engraved by Etienne Cournault, as well as antique jewelry inspired by the mechanical world, the machine, the car and speed.

The great jewelers of the time were Georges Fouquet, who created in his workshop the jewels designed by his son Jean, but also those of the painter André Léveillé, the sculptor Jean Lambert Rucki, the poster artist Cassandre and the architect Eric Bagge; the house of Boucheron, or Raymond Templier. The House of Cartier was also inspired at that time by the animal world and more particularly by the fur of wild animals to create these famous motifs, which are still relevant today.
