The Art Deco era is famous for being the “Gatsby” or “Roaring Twenties” era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1940. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specially cut to fit the design of the piece. During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would usually take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. During the Art Deco and Art Nouveau eras, moonstone jewelry was popularized by designers such as Tiffany and René Lalique. The Romans believed that moonstones were created by the gods from solidified rays of the moon due to the opalescent hue that it gives off that reminds the viewer of the moon peering through a thin layer of clouds. Pools of light jewelry originated in China but grew in popularity during the 1920s following the end of the First World War. This type of jewelry arose out of a desire for clean and modern lines and is a gorgeous expression of Gatsby-style fashion. These timeless pieces are very versatile due to the clear beads that often make up their focal points and are often composed of clear quartz or glass.
