The Art Deco era of the 1920s and 1930s burst forth with a great amount of exuberance. Piling on the jewels was the way to go. Pearls remained popular and endless variations of the diamond platinum bracelet were prominent. Waistless dresses were embellished with plaque brooches, bar pins and jeweled ornaments.
Rings in geometric forms with hexagonal and octagonal shapes were adorned with diamonds and colorful gemstones. Domed and step mounts allowed all the beauty of the gemstones to sparkle through. Enameled work in colorful configurations draw the eye.
The Art Nouveau style shone brightly and generated passion for a short while at the turn of the century from 1895 to 1910. The Art Nouveau era was distilled by the French, yet the foundation for its distinct look of line and form was influnced by the British Arts & Crafts movement.
There were many practitioners of the Nouveau style in France, yet the work of one man, Rene Lalique defined the era.
The use of gemstones and other materials, enameling and motifs from nature were all popular during the era. Art Nouveau jewelry is more three dimensional and asymmetrical. The female face and body, both naked and clothed, were predominant figures for interpretation in rings, pendants and brooches. Other favourites from the era included butterflies and dragonflies, slithering snakes that represented unending love and mythical creatures. The botanical influence includes the use of irises, pansies, poppies, water lilies and trailing vines. Like a rich dessert that is difficult to digest, the stylistic excess and commercialization of Art Nouveau jewelry contributed to its demise by 1915.

Victorian era jewelry spans nearly a century, from the early Victorian (romantic period) of 1837-1861 to the mid Victorian era (grand period) of 1861-1880. The late Victorian era dates from 1880 to 1900.
The Victorian era produced spectacular jewelry with the tone set by Queen Victoria in the early part of the century. Snake jewelry, a symbol of everlasting love, was a motif that recured throughout the 19th century.
Other popular jewelry and gemstones included hairwork jewelry, coral, mogul jewelry (such as tigers claws and teeth), revivalist jewelry and gold rush jewelry (gold quartz). Archelogical discoveries prompted jewelry styles from ancient and medieval cultures. Celtic, Egyptian, Etruscan, Mogul (India), Roman and Renaissance all became popular. Micro mosaic jewelry, tiny bits of glass or tesserae, are pieced together to form a picture.
