Art deco rings are jewellery pieces that were crafted during a period of optimistic times when just about many things were booming: social freedoms, technology, and artistic movements. The term art deco is short for Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes which was the event held in Paris, France which inspired a style that would last for many years beginning at 1925 until the mid-1930s.
Art deco mainly plays with geometric shapes woven together in intricate designs. The shapes include circles, triangles, squares, and rectangles. It influenced many designs during the time which range from automobiles to clothing. It shouldn’t come as a surprise as to why they are a staple among many jewellery collectors. Nowadays, if you want to get a piece of jewellery, you can either have one made by a contemporary jewellery designer or get it from an antique shop like Kalmar Antiques Australia.
