A style of decoration that followed, c.1730, the baroque style in France (where it was also called rocaille), the principal features of which are asymmetry of ornament and a repertoire consisting to a considerable extent of rockwork, shells, flowers, foliage, and scrollwork. It was developed in France under Louis XV, 1715-74, and spread to Italy, Germany, and Austria and to a lesser extent to England. Rococo was followed, after the mid-l8th century, by the neo-classical style,generally termed in England 'Adam style'. As applied to jewelry, rococo was evidenced by the departure from the symmetrical arrangement of gem-stones (such as the frequent three pendent pearls)and the introduction, in patterns, of feathers, ribbons, and foliage. Leading exponents of the style among jewelry designers were Girolami Venturi (c. 1739), Thomas Flach (c. 1736), Albini (c. 1744),and Christian Taute (c. 1750). In the second quarter of the 19th century, there was a period of 'revived rococo' style.
