The birth of Art Deco came in Paris at an exhibition for decorative arts in the 1920s, namely the Exposition Internationale Des Artes Decorative et Industriels, which was the very first time this colorful style was seen. After years of austerity, people yearned for rich color and the bold, geometric lines that Art Deco introduced and the influence extended to architecture, the arts and even household appliances.
The Essence Of Art Deco
Art Deco is all about combining rich color with geometric shapes, with fine workmanship and a range of precious stones and metals. Artists and designers had carte blanche and that resulted in some amazing creations, some of which have ended up in an antique dealer’s collection.
One of the best-known jewellery makers, Cartier were instrumental in developing Art Deco by introducing sapphires, emeralds and rubies, shifting the focus from diamonds to other gems. Designs became even more colorful and pronounced shapes were commonly found on Art Deco jewellery.
