All That Jazz

The roaring style in jewelry is a lesson in 20s decadence.

 

Mimicking the many Daisy Buchanan-perfect pieces that debuted on recent runways—including (and arguably most memorable on) the Spring/Summer 2012 catwalk of “The Great Gatsby” clothier Ralph Lauren—art deco jewelry is having its biggest moment in years. In fact, bauble enthusiasts haven’t been so jazzed since the trend’s first resurgence in the 1980s. Marked by geometric designs, clean, angular lines and bold colors by way of rubies and sapphires, the jewelry style that originated in the optimistic ’20s reads as modern as ever—and now comes in options aplenty. Shop costume or fine jewelry, new or old (think estate pieces), and don’t forget to pair each piece with a drop-waist dress—in true flapper form.
