Bold and Beautiful Art Deco Jewelry

Art Deco is a style phenomenon that was established first in Paris in the mid-1920s.  The style is seen in everything from furniture and home accessories to cars and buildings.  One of the most prolific Art Deco buildings in the United States is situated right in my hometown; the Buffalo City Hall is a masterpiece which commands the view of downtownBuffalo and the city’s waterfront.  There are also many antiques made in the Art Deco style, but none as sought after as jewelry of the period.

Art Deco jewelry was made for elegance and beauty using geometric patterns; squares, circles and rectangles.  The designers of the period often laced the geometric patterns together to make stunning arrays and then decorated the pieces with precious stones for the higher end pieces and faux diamonds, rubies and emeralds for the more inexpensive pieces of the time.  The designers of these pieces also used a lot of bakelite, celluloid and enamel in their designs and this jewelry design continued to be popular until the mid-30s.

From the NOVA-Antiques Blog;  The Ever Popular Pfaltzgraf Pottery

As a collector and reseller of vintage collectibles, like many others, every few weeks go to the “lists.”  The lists are what tell us what people are searching for and we hope, if they are searching for, they are buying.  As webmaster, I also check my own list, to see what searches have landed people on my website, but there are also lists on Tias and eBay that are published periodically for all to see.  One name that has seems to be on these lists for a little while now is Pfaltzgraff.

Art Deco jewelry was very important to women of that era because it fit in with everything else.  This was about the time that women’s equality began to take shape and Art Deco designs; low hanging ear rings and necklaces and boldly designed rings; all went hand in hand with their “short” dresses, painted lips, bobbed hairdos and floppy hats; all that we now associate with flappers. Like the women of the time, think Greta Garbo and Barbara Stanwyck, Art Deco jewelry is both bold and beautiful.
