Area Information

Between the 1910s and 1950s, jewellery design remained original and glamorous despite being impacted by cycles of boom, depression, and war. While exotic creations influenced by the Near and Far East revealed that jewellery fashions were genuinely global, sharp, geometric patterns hailed the machine era. Now that New York was on par with Paris as a fashion hub, European jewellery companies could anticipate selling to and purchasing from the Indian subcontinent. Art Deco jewellery is distinguished by dense clusters of gemstones. Because it was less expensive than platinum starting around 1933, gold started to reappear in fashion. Jewelry design attracted artists and designers from several disciplines. The new paths jewellery would go in are hinted at in their work.

Material Information

Pewter

Pewter is a malleable metal alloy. It is traditionally composed of 85โ€“99% tin, mixed with copper, antimony, bismuth, and sometimes lead, although the use of lead is less common today. Silver is also sometimes used. Copper and antimony act as hardeners while lead is more common in the lower grades of pewter, which have a bluish tint.

Enamel

Enameling is a decoration technique in which a glass of certain composition is fused to the surrounding or under laying metal. Although the exact origins are unknown, the art of enamelling has been practiced since ancient times. The favor of adorning jewelry with bright colors has always existed and the use of glass created colors which nature – in the form of gemstones – could not provide for in ancient times. Excavations on Cyprus – in the Mediterranean – in the 1950's brought cloisonnรฉ enameled jewelry to the surface which dates from the 13th and 11th century BC. These are, to date, the earliest enameled items found in this particular technique.
