Retro Jewellery
1935–1950

Retro jewellery is back to gold and notably rose gold, due to the short supply of platinum that was required for the war. One thinks of retro as the golden age of Hollywood glamour jewellery: Joan Crawford, Marlena Detrich, Greta Garbo. There is nothing subtle or demure about it. Oversized, dramatic, deco-inspired designs were common and very often asymmetrical and whimsical. Rubies were all the rage but also many semi-precious stones were used: Citrine, Aquamarine, Amethyst and Moonstones in large sizes.
