Understated elegance—white, brilliant jewelry delicately set in platinum—was the hallmark of the Art Deco period. At its height during the Roaring ‘20’s (think HBO hit Boardwalk Empire) and lasting nearly 20 years, Art Deco is known for its linear, geometric design.


Art Deco is one of the most sought after styles of jewelry, making signed pieces like this Van Cleef & Arpels bracelet some of the most collectible items on the market.


This piece is platinum set with diamonds in a lovely wavelike pattern, which contrasts beautifully with the otherwise linear feel of the piece. With platinum so fine that it feels smooth on the skin, and interesting geometric patterns, these bracelets are extremely wearable and never go out of style. With Art Deco-inspired looks all over the S/S 2012 runways this September, these bracelets are right on trend.
