Art Deco Jewellery at O’Reilly’s

19 August

Art Deco jewellery is one of the most timeless and sought after styles of jewellery today. The style reflected the playful and flamboyant attitudes of the era. The Art Deco period was from 1920 – 1935, however the designs and styles have remained influential during the rest of the century and until today. Art Deco jewellery designs are defined by geometric designs, strong lines and bold colours in contrast to the preceding periods. Diamonds were popular and often accompanied by emeralds, sapphire or rubies. Onyx was also used in contrast with diamonds to create a bold monochrome look. O’Reilly’s will usually have several fine pieces of Art Deco in an auction and they can be purchased for considerably less then you will find in high end stores. This type of jewellery is a an ideal investment as the style never dates.
