The 1930s: The 1930s saw a departure from the carefree flapper style of the 20s and a new decade began with the glamour that was oozing out of Hollywood. The dress clip was the most popular piece of jewellery at the time worn on the neckline and soon being designed in a double incorporating the symmetry featured so heavily in the designs of the Art Deco period. The slim line and fine details in rings and bracelets seen in the 20s were expanded on and bracelets became wider while rings became more elongated both horizontally and vertically on the fingers. Men wore Cartier’s bejewelled cufflinks and diamond studded brooches, which brought an air of glamour to their masculinity.
