Gone were the empire gowns of the Edwardian Era and in came the shorter, more free flowing flapper dresses with their dropped waists and flirty intentions. As a result the jewellery changed to compliment the latest fashion trends. While old cut gems were still being used, yellow gold was being fazed out and white gold and platinum were taking over the jewellery industry creating long necklaces with tassels on the end (satouirs), line bracelets and elongated earrings to stand out against short cropped hair. Rings were perfectly symmetrical and often featured contrasting stones which really added to the whole new look of the “Jazz Age”.
