Jewels by period


Discover our selection of jewelry by period, from the 18th to the 21st century. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Art Nouveau style ended and gave way to geometrical and reasonable shapes. After the curves, it is the Art Deco jewels that adorn the world. Diamonds, onyx, platinum, brooches and lapel clips adorned the outfits of women who wore less jewelry, but those that remained were of fine quality. The ears are adorned with diamonds, transformable jewelry.

After the war and the short period of Art Deco jewelry here is the Retro period. It is also the full period of modernism in architecture and decorative arts. Platinum disappeared from the frames. The jewelry is loaded with large stones, yellow gold has the beautiful part. Cocktail rings appeared on the hands. We go up in height and jewelers make more imposing pieces. Bracelets and tank rings inspired by tanks are in fashion in the 40s and 50s.

And then here are the 60s, place to color, to emancipation. Gold is dripping, it’s the return of sapphires and rubies in the sets. Artists start to make jewelry, Dali creates a whole collection. In this second half of the 20th century new materials are tried: plexiglass, resin, bakelite, metal, wood… The jewels of the 20th century are extremely rich in forms and styles. There is bound to be one to please you.

    Learn more: Giardinetti rings, or “Little Gardens” in English, appeared in the late 17th century. In the 18th century, the naturalistic trend charmed goldsmiths, leading to the creation of many pieces adorned with floral and animal motifs, especially insects. Giardinetti rings often appear as bouquets of flowers and foliage tied with a ribbon or in the form of a bouquet in a small basket. Highly prized in the mid-18th century, they were mostly made of gold and silver, and sometimes in metal adorned with rhinestones.
