Elegant Symmetry: Art Deco Rose Cut Diamond Earrings from the 1940s

These vintage 1940s Art Deco earrings epitomize the style's fondness for abstract motifs and geometric forms. Crafted in 18K white gold, each earring is adorned with a large rose cut diamond, capturing the essence of the era with their understated yet elegant design. The Art Deco period, known for its departure from the organic forms of Art Nouveau, embraced modernism and futurism, which is reflected in the clean lines and sophisticated simplicity of these earrings. They represent not just a fashion statement but also a piece of history, embodying the glamour and functional modernity that was prevalent in the decorative arts of the early 20th century.

Style
Art Deco - Art Deco is an eclectic artistic and design style which had its origins in Paris in the first decades of the 20th century. The style originated in the 1920s and continued to be employed until after World War II. The term "art deco" first saw wide use after an exhibition in 1966, referring to the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes that was the culmination of high-end style modern in Paris. Led by the best designers in the decorative arts such as fashion, and interior design, Art Deco affected all areas of design throughout the 1920s and 1930s, including architecture and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as painting, the graphic arts and film. At the time, this style was seen as elegant, glamorous, functional and modern.

Style specifics
Abstract motives and geometrical forms are quite typical for the Art Deco period. Art Deco moved away from the soft pastels and organic forms of its style predecessor, Art Nouveau, and embraced influences from many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism, and Futurism. Its popularity peaked in Europe during the Roaring Twenties and continued strongly in the United States through the 1930s. Although many design movements have political or philosophical roots or intentions, Art Deco was purely decorative.
