Many gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. During the Art Deco Period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Gold Filled Jewelry is a type of metal that must be at least a layer of 5% of the total items weight in gold. This layer of gold is often laid over a base metal or sometimes Sterling Silver. It produced a high quality gold look. Precious coral is harvested almost exclusively in the Mediterranean off the coasts of Italy, France, Spain, Algeria, and Tunisia. Salmon coral has widely been valued as the rarest and most beautiful of all coral types. During the Victorian Period, only the richest of the rich could afford to have this form of coral harvested and imported to Europe and North America.
