Description
In the 1920s and 1930s, the mechanical purity of the machine age and striking contrasts of line, color, and material were reflected in objects for a new lifestyle. Smoky nightclubs, cocktails, d�cor for chic apartments, and dinner tables: all provided a new landscape for the designs of the great jewelry houses of Europe, with Paris as the superstar of cities. The gloom of war was replaced by an explosion of color or newly chic, risqu� black, white, and gold. Zen rock gardens, Persian birds, or Tutankhamun motifs provided global influences in a triumph of creativity.

How this new world developed, the tastes and skills of its decorative shapers—including Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari, Boucheron, but above all, Cartier—as well as the process of design and making and the rules of feminine elegance are explored by expert authors. Detailed descriptions of over one hundred pieces accompany a parade of the finest, all specially photographed for this publication.
