The Art Deco era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1940. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specifically cut to fit the design of the piece.During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Chasing is a metalworking technique that uses a nail-like tool and hammer to hand etch patterns onto a metal surface.
This process creates a design that is sunk into the front of the surface using indentations, grooves, and channels. Chasing is thousands of years old and was a very difficult and time-consuming technique that is still used by metalsmiths today. Rhodium plated silver is fine or sterling silver that is polished and dipped in rhodium for a bright finish similar to white gold. Rhodium plating is used to add beauty to a piece and to prevent tarnish from forming on the silver.
