Newly Released, “The Great Gatsby” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, brings the lavish lifestyle of the roaring twenties back to life. The Jazz Age, also known as the roaring twenties has seen a certain resurgence due to the anticipate release of this movie. The era is commonly known as Art Deco in the jewelry industry. This name is derived from the Exposition International des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, which was held in Paris in 1925. The style of the time was highly influenced by the art of this time, which is characterized by Cubist and Fauve movements. Geometric patterns and colors were thus the hot trend during this time.
The movie features vintage art deco rings, dangling jewels, bold cufflinks, and of course plenty of diamonds and pearls. While Gatsby may be set in the past, the vintage looks of the pieces are timeless. If you love the Art Deco inspired jewelry here at AmRhein’s we have an extensive collection of estate pieces from this time period that the ever glamorous Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan would have worn. Our Estate Jewelry Collection includes cases of estate jewels in various precious metals, with diamonds, pearls, and colored gemstones.
