The term “Art Deco” comes from the Exposition International des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, held in Paris in 1925. Art Deco jewelry emerged as a symbol of the era's newfound freedom and desire for modernity. At Walton's, we celebrate the essence of this remarkable period by offering a stunning collection of Art Deco jewelry from the design movement that has captured hearts for decades.
Gone were the flowing botanical-inspired designs from the Art Nouveau era and in came bold geometric designs with sharp, clean lines. As women embraced newfound freedom in clothing, hairstyles, and lifestyles, they sought modern-looking jewelry to complement their avant-garde choices. Platinum took center stage as the preferred metal, providing the perfect backdrop to showcase the glittering gems of choice during this period: diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, and rubies. With gem cutters finding new ways to cut and shape gems, intricate mosaic designs flourished.
Art Deco jewelry has stood the test of time, captivating the hearts of collectors, connoisseurs, and fashion enthusiasts alike. Its timeless beauty and intricate designs continue to make a bold statement in the world of jewelry. Whether you are seeking an engagement ring, a stunning necklace, or an elegant bracelet, our Art Deco pieces will transport you to an era of glamour and sophistication.
