About Retro Jewelry

Retro Jewelry Designs

The Retro jewelry period spans the years between 1935 and 1950. This was war-time in Europe and America and women joined the work force to lend their support. Women's wardrobe fashion dictated a severe silhouette with tight fitting jackets and skirts so jewelry designs were the exact opposite with feminine motifs and soft curves.

Retro Jewelry Designs

Jewelry during the Retro Jewelry Period became bolder, brighter and more whimsical. Gold regained popularity during the Retro period as platinum was being used for the war effort and was not available to jewelry craftsman. It was during the Retro jewelry period that different colors of gold became popular -- yellow gold was combined with rose gold and green gold in striking combinations. In Retro jewelry, everything was bigger and bolder. Gemstones like aquamarines and citrines were fashioned in rectangular cuts and massive proportions. Hollywood glamor and glitz favored anything that was big, bold, colorful, and exciting. Cocktails rings were all the rage along with oversized bracelets, watches and rings. Colored gemstones were favorites along with synthetic rubies and sapphires.
