Art Deco Jewelry
At least once a week, I post pictures of jewelry to our Facebook page. While looking through that file the other day, I realized I have an Art Deco preference. The jewelry below is nearly 100 years old, but it's so simple yet detailed that you could wear it now without it screaming vintage. That's not too surprising consider that many classic jewelry styles from Chanel's pearls to Bulgari's snakes debuted at this time. Platinum, diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires were popular materials during the boom of the 1920s, but I'm fond of the era's fondness for less precious materials like onyx, jade and lapis. No need to hang on to your wallet. These antique pieces by Cartier and Tiffany are out of most budgets.
