Gemstones are time consuming to cut, requiring a high degree of skill from a trained craftsperson, and glass cabochons can be equally complicated to manufacture on a large scale while keeping costs down. These constraints are only a few of the reasons you often see similar shapes of stones used in jewelry. For example, for a striking look as well as a unique find. Art Deco is one of the first truly international styles, that influenced the design of buildings, furniture, fashion and of course, jewelry.
The movement was given a name from the international exposition of Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes, that was held in Paris in 1925 and largely dedicated to the jewelry arts. Born out of ideas of modernism and the Industrial Age, this manifested into designs that used Cubism's bold abstraction and rectilinear shapes and combined them with intricate patterning, bold color and symmetry. High-end jewelry design houses like Cartier and Boucheron set the trends in gold and gemstones, which were then emulated by costume jewelry companies in glass or perhaps plastics, and brought to the masses. _gsrx_vers_1436 GS 9.0.5 (1436).This item is in the category "Jewelry & Watches\Vintage & Antique Jewelry\Earrings".
