At the end of the war, French society underwent great transformations. This era was marked by a desire for renewal which was expressed in Art Deco.
Art Deco is the name given to the « modern » style of the 20th century. He had a worldwide influence during the interwar period and expressed himself in all areas of creation. This period marked the history of the jewel by associating inventiveness of the forms with an extraordinary smoothness of work on platinum.
This type of ancient jewel is enjoying increasing success given its timelessness.
