This listing is for the item only. The Art Deco era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1940. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specially cut to fit the design of the piece. During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would usually take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Chinese export jewelry became popular during the late Victorian period and persisted until the 1960s. During this period, Chinese craftsmen were considered by far the best in the world. The rich and wealthy would custom-order a piece through their local jeweler, who would send the design off to China to be made and sent back to Europe. This lengthy process was very expensive, making Chinese export pieces highly desirable, then and now. Tibetan jewelry is beautiful, and has deep symbolic, religious, and spiritual meanings. This jewelry is composed of turquoise, lapis lazuli, amber, and coral, and often features brightly hued stones in contrasting colors. The stonecutting and jewelry making tradition was passed on from generation to generation of Tibetan people, and Tibetan jewelry is believed to be one of the wonders from the Medieval world. Articulated pieces of jewelry are usually composed of two or more pieces connected by a flexible joint, hinge, or pivot to allow for realistic movement. This technique is used to lend a lifelike quality to animal figures, or to allow jewelry to drape elegantly, like a snake chain.
