One of the most popular of styles that we sell, the Art Deco movement was an extension of the Art Nouveau. It focused on cross-cultural references to develop a style that was named after the 1925 International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts in Paris.... Women Art Deco rings were extremely popular as women were able to buy more luxury items as consumerism and wealth were on the rise during the period after World War I. Art Deco artists draw inspiration from a lot of different things, such as Greek and antique art, as well as the Mexican Aztecs, and more. This era used geometry that was found in the decorative arts found in different cultures around the world, such as Persia, Greece, India, Japan, China, and the Americas.
Art Deco jewelry was characterized by bold designs that emphasized geometry and symmetry and striking color contrasts. Motifs often consisted of repeated patterns of shapes; pyramids and steps were common. It was the advent of the airplane and the automobile that encouraged designs such as arrows, cars, planes and racing greyhounds.
The timeline of Art Deco stretches throughout most of the 20th Century, apart from the 1950s when it went out of fashion for a short while. Jewelry in this style, including women Art Deco rings is still being made now and will no doubt continue well into the 21st Century.
