The Details...

Constructed from sterling silver, this bracelet features a typically Art Deco geometric design. The central panel of the bracelet is set with Marcasite stones and an oval shaped, claw set, Carnelian glass disc. The bracelet fastens with a bolt ring. The bracelet measures 17.5cm in length. The reverse of the bracelet is stamped 'STERLING' and is etched with the initials of the jewellers where it was originally retailed.

A Short History...

During the 1920s and early 1930s, jewellery was influenced by the dawn of a new era. There was a push for all things modern after the shock of the First World War - people wanted to be cleansed of the old and celebrate the new. In the world of design a pure, hard-edged style was craved. This was evident in Bauhaus architecture, cubist art and the dropped-waist, linear-cut silhouette of the Flapper Girl. Jewellery designers looked to celebrate a burgeoning, bright industrial future in their work, creating pieces that looked almost mechanical with their sharp shapes and chrome coloured highlights. This bracelet is certainly a-typical of Art Deco jewellery design during the period - its bold geometry, encrusted with bright Marcasites for a new feminine look and movement.
