For further information : in reaction to the Art Nouveau period, the Art Deco movement emerges… Around 1915, the desire for rigor, geometry and clean lines was born. Platinum and white gold eclipse yellow gold. Jewellers are giving pride of place to diamonds, onyx, turquoise and emeralds. The maharajas arrived in Paris with chests full of stones and had the most beautiful jewels of the beginning of the century made. Art Deco is a global art, it does not only affect jewelry. Architecture, graphics, fashion, everything changes. The arrival of the war will put an end to this creative impetus in the mid 30s.
