One of the most popular styles, the Art Deco was known for its clean lines,
and simple shapes juxtaposed to create beautiful compositions. Pave settings
became popular at this time (The term refers to diamonds that are set so closely
together that they create an illusion of a “paved surface where the setting
becomes invisible.) While a lot of jewelry from this period was black and white
– the black coming from the use of onyx and the white from the pearls, there is
plenty of color in Art Deco jewelry. A perfect accent to the diamonds in their
white gold settings, are these magnificent natural green emerald drops. The Art
Deco style in jewelry lasted through the 1930s, however, the Art Deco witnessed
a revival in the late 1960s, and even today jewelry designers continue to be
inspired by the period.
