Tank jewelry - Diamond tank jewelry - Rose gold tank jewelry

Gold will become scarce in the early 1940s and will be rationed everywhere. As for platinum, it was unobtainable because it was requisitioned.
The shapes of the jewels of this period are very sculptural (their creators are Picasso, Dali or Braque) and thus break the established conventions.
The rings are voluminous, bold and owe nothing to Art Deco. They are gigantic. The calibrated colored stones are synthetic, mixed with diamonds and the metal of choice is yellow or rose gold. The metal is treated as a fabric, we find draped, pleated, knots and ribbons.
We observe the creation of many large bracelets and other geometric patterns. Some are articulated and recall the caterpillars of chariots. Others are made of "tubogas" or "gas pipe" mesh. The tank rings are identifiable by their impressive volume.
The jewels of the 1940's were called TANK jewels in reference to the tanks that crisscrossed our country.

Tank jewelry : 1940s - 1950s

These jewels are for some a refuge value which is easily transportable under a small volume and for others the demonstration of a beautiful success in the "business". In view of the difficulties encountered in sourcing gold and precious stones, old jewelry is melted down and old precious stones are recovered.
Each piece of tank jewelry is a unique piece, which has crossed the years and tells us the history, they each have their own certificate of authenticity, issued by an appraiser antique jewelry approved.
