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