Art Deco emerged in 1925 as a result of the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris. Jewelry made in the Art Deco era was typically fashioned in either white gold or platinum, arranged in simple shapes and clean lines. Pavé settings became popular during this time and custom-cut gems such as diamonds, emeralds, rubies, and sapphires were featured prominently. The upcoming Auction VIII – A Collection of Fine Jewelry, presented by Intervendue, features several Art Deco jewelry pieces. Highlighted among them is a diamond and sapphire bracelet set in platinum.
A white gold Bulgari Parentesi ring is also available. Introduced in the 1980s, Parentesi was designed especially for working women. The design took its inspiration from Rome’s travertine pavement with junctions linking stone blocks. Another lot of interest is an 18-karat white gold flower ring. This piece has a pearl in the center surrounded with full- and baguette-cut diamonds. Browse the full catalog and register to bid on Bidsquare.
