Initially a reaction against the lack of luxuries imposed by World War I, Art Deco was the most fashionable international design movement in modern art from 1925 until the 1940s. In architecture, Art Deco rose to great heights in geometrically-designed New York hi-rise buildings such as the Chrysler Building and Rockefeller Centre. Art Deco’s influence on jewelry was also historic and enduring–– a reflection of modern technology characterized by smooth lines, geometric shapes, and streamlined forms.
The Blue Topaz Skyscraper Earrings embody Art Deco design in a stunning geometric design built using sparkling blue topaz baguettes. Set in sterling silver and finished in gleaming, tarnish-resistant rhodium, these earrings cower to no one. We even managed to turn back the pricing to the bygone era, because the view is so much better when you’re getting the very best price.
