Art Decorate Your Outfit

An eclectic style that originated in France after the first World War, Art Deco combines rich colors, bold geometric shapes, and lavish embellishment. Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, and exuberance especially during its emergence in the Roaring Twenties, a time of great economic prosperity and all things lavish and extravagant. The style is seen worldwide as architecture, furniture, paintings, decorations, and jewelry. Art Deco jewelry draws on a number of styles including modernism, cubism, futurism, and is heavily influenced by Egyptian and Aztec designs. Embellished in diamonds and gems, women were able to express their newfound fashion freedom as they invested their riches into jewelry.

After “The Great Gatsby” made its film debut earlier this year, Art Deco jewelry made its comeback and we couldn’t be happier. The artistic style jewelry allows us to pay homage to a decade of a great economic boom while we accessorize our outfits with extravagant ornamentations. The perfect accessory to nearly every outfit, Art Deco pieces are a must-have in any jewelry box. Below are a few jewelry options in the beloved 1920’s artistic style.
