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 white gold set
diamonds, there is plenty of color in Art Deco design jewelry. A perfect accent
to the diamonds in their white gold settings, are these magnificent green jade
disc. 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.
