A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1940. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specifically cut to fit the design of the piece. During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Iridescent in hue, abalone shell has been used in jewelry since antiquity. This lovely stone is similar to mother of pearl in appearance and is harvested from the interior of the abalone shell. The hues include those or deep cobalt blues, purples, greens, and yellows. Marcasite was a very popular stone during the Art Deco period. Marcasite is meticulously hand-cut from pieces of iron pyrite and perfectly faceted to reflect the light. Marcasite is pale yellow or white with a bright luster, but tarnishes to a brown color. During the wild, Gatsby-style parties, ladies’ jewelry could be seen sparkling from across the room. Milgrain was first popularized during the Art Deco era and is most commonly associated with the Gatsby-style parties and gorgeous styles of that time. When the use of milgrain edging first began in the jewelry community each individual bead that makes up the milgrain edging had to be made and applied by hand. This process can be mimicked much more easily in present day jewelry making, which adds a touch of nostalgia and pride to antique or vintage milgrain edged jewelry items.
