1930s Jewelry

This collection of 1930s jewelry includes pendant earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and brooches, as well as new types of jewels – dress clips and double-clip brooches. In fact, dress clips were the most important jeweled accessory during the Great Depression. Costume jewelry makers also produced fruit salads, molded glass that imitated carved gemstones popularized by fine jewelers such as Cartier. Bakelite and other plastics were used to create whimsical jewelry in every possible form. The Art Deco style continued to evolve, with new motifs and streamlining. By decade’s end, Machine Age (aka Streamline Modern) jewelry was in vogue.
