Art Deco period (1925-1935)
The name Art Deco comes from an exhibition that was held in Paris in 1925 called Exposition Internationle des Arts Décoratifs. It showcased the geometric style of the period, embracing the abundance of fine artisans fleeing such places as Russia and its revolution. Combined with the latest technologies of gemstone cutting, the abundance of fine gem specimens and the new and exciting metal – platinum. This style was seen way into the mid thirties and was boldly emulated in the post war 40’s style of the Retro period.
