At the end of the war, French society experienced great transformations. This era is marked by a desire for renewal that will be expressed in Art Deco.
Art Deco is the name given to the “modern” style of the 20th century. He knew a global influence during the interwar period and expressed himself in all areas of creation. This period marked the history of jewelry by associating inventive forms with an extraordinary finesse of work on platinum.
This type of antique jewelry is enjoying increasing success given its timelessness.
