At the end of the war, French society underwent great transformations. This period was marked by a desire for renewal which would 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 jewelery by associating inventiveness of shapes with extraordinary finesse of work on platinum.
