Art Deco (1920 - 1939):
It can be argued that the Art Deco period actually started before the 1920s, however it is agreed that it really took off after the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes (International Exposition of Decorative Arts and Modern Industries) in Paris, 1925. Drawing on influences from earlier art movements such as Cubism and Bauhaus, the style took traditional jewellery design and through it out the window. The soft, flowing lines inspired by nature from the previous eras were gone. Instead sharp, geometrical designs took centre stage and countries such as Asia and Egypt became the primary source of inspiration. Platinum and white gold were the prominent metals used to set stones, diamonds were popularly being set and contrasted with black onyx and the bright colours of jade, coral, rubies, sapphires and emeralds. This design style resulted in some of the most amazing and influential designs to ever have come out of the industry.
