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 specifically cut to fit the design of the piece.
During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Marcasite was a very popular stone during the Art Deco period. Marcasite is meticulously hand-cut from pieces of iron pyrite and perfectly faceted to reflect the light. Marcasite is pale yellow or white with a bright luster, but tarnishes to a brown color. During the wild, Gatsby-style parties, ladies jewelry could be seen sparkling from across the room.
Intaglios are formed when an artisan carves downwards, into a stone, to create an image, design, or pattern in low relief. These carving can be done in any material, though for jewelry purposes intaglios are often made out of precious or semi-precious stones as well as coral and glass. Intaglio rings often serve a purpose similar to either signet rings or cameos, as they can be used as a way to seal important documents or they can be used to celebrate archaic figures. Articulated pieces of jewelry are usually composed of two or more pieces connected by a flexible joint, hinge, or pivot to allow for realistic movement. This technique is used to lend a lifelike quality to animal figures, or to allow jewelry to drape elegantly, like a snake chain.The item "Antique Vintage Deco Retro Sterling Silver Reversed Carved Crystal 2.6 Earrings" is in sale since Sunday, December 22, 2019.
