Art Deco

Art Deco, a style of art made between World War I and World War II, is just as popular as ever. Inspired by both Native Americans and the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians, it is best known for bright colors and geometric patterns.

The opening of King Tut’s tomb in 1922 is considered to be the beginning of the Art Deco movement, and it became popular in both North America and all over Europe. Some of the biggest jewelers of the time made Art Deco designs in London. A great example of Art Deco Jewelry is this 14kt Diamond and Sapphire Ring.


It is made from 14kt yellow gold, and has a .50ct center cut European diamond. It was made in the 1940s, and we are very proud to be able to feature it in our shop.

Art Deco represented the luxury and glamor of the roaring Twenties; it is a wonderful way to add some flash to any outfit.
