Art Deco jewelry

The design of Art Deco jewelry (1915 - 1935) is very popular and much appreciated today as it was back then. It is defined by geometric shapes and bright colors and you will often find combinations of diamonds and colored gems like rubies, sapphires or emeralds in Art Deco jewelry.

High auction results for Art Deco creations reveal that this category is one of the most sought after jewelry. 

If you're wondering why, take a look at these amazing pieces:

Van Cleef & Arpels earrings with golden and blue sapphires, diamonds and emeralds

Cartier Art Deco Aquamarine Brooch, via Pinterest

Lacloche Freres 33.06 Carat Natural, 'no heat' sapphire and diamond
And this is not all. I invite you to check out other impressive Art Deco creations on Fred Leighton's website. I came across their online platform while researching for this kind of jewelry and I found there beautiful collections of adornments from different periods of time, starting the 18th century.

Here are just three examples of what kind of jewelry you can find on their website:
