Fashion & Vintage Art Deco Jewellery Go Together
The 1920s saw the emergence of a radical new style; bold geometric shapes and clean straight lines with rich colour replaced the blandness of Victorian times.
Art Deco was first shown in Paris at an art & design exhibition, although its origins can be traced back to pre-WWI days this style gradually permeated Europe and in 1925, the Paris show launched Art Deco to the world.
The fashion rule book has been torn up and thrown to the wind and you can buy 1920s Art Deco engagement rings online from a reputable antique dealer. Imagine what such rings have seen in their lifetime? One of these rings may have been presented to a European princess or the daughter of a nobleman; the imagination can work overtime when you wear an antique diamond engagement ring.
The Art Deco era saw semi-precious stones burst onto the scene; you can wear antique Art Deco jewellery pieces that often come with stunning jade or amethyst, adding a touch of rich colour to your look. Whatever your favourite colour, search the online antique dealer’s website for the perfect Art Deco accessory that you can add to your growing jewellery collection. Antique jewellery is a wise long-term investment, plus you get to wear the asset, which is a win-win.
Bold Is Beautiful
That seems to be the way we are heading with today’s fashion; you only have to look at what the models wear with their often weird and wonderful outfits as they take the catwalk. Anything goes – well almost anything – and Art Deco jewellery has a place in this crazy fashion hotpot, with geometric shapes and deep gemstone colours. Even if you are wearing a semi-formal outfit, a pair of ruby red Art Deco earrings are ideal.
Sourcing Genuine Art Deco Jewellery
There is really only one way to be sure that Art Deco jewellery is, in fact, genuine and that is by approaching a reputable antique jewellery dealer with a large selection of the finest items. Such a dealer would have a catalogue of genuine Art Deco pieces, including:
- Vintage luxury watches
Forging a working relationship with a good antique dealer provides you with a reliable source when looking for specific pieces. If you happen to find an interesting item, you can always ask the dealer for his professional opinion; he would be happy to meet you at his shop and appraise any piece you are interested in acquiring.
Experimenting with the accessories in your jewellery box is one way to discover new combinations. When you are in need of something special, search the dealer’s website for something suitable. Many women combine their investment portfolio with antique jewellery collecting; genuine Art Deco diamond jewellery is very valuable and makes for a worthy long-term investment.
Colourful gemstones are a signature of the Art Deco style. The diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires in Art Deco jewellery add a touch of rich colour to any look.
