The heyday epoch of Art Deco falls between the two catastrophes of the 20th century, the two great wars. But it was during these intervening years that the art of jewellery experienced an unprecedented richness of materials and a perfection of execution never again achieved. In those years, everything seemed to interpenetrate, a new formal language, which was explicitly directed against the floral Art Nouveau and wanted to oppose it with clearer, purer forms, was applied in almost all areas of the arts. The architecture of the time particularly impressed the people of the twenties, as did the new automobiles and the unconditional modernity associated with them. An "ever higher, ever further, ever faster" was the attitude to life of this epoch - and therein lay confidence and joie de vivre. The large pair of earrings presented here shows itself to be a child of this time. Above two lilac amethysts in the classic scissor cut rises a finely designed structure that illustrates the above described understanding of form of that time. The graphic elements are decorated with fine mille handles, creating a play of light and shadow with the incident light. Twenty-six old-cut and Swiss-cut diamonds each coat the white gold with their starry brilliance. White gold was a new invention at the beginning of the century and for the first time it was possible to alloy the actually yellow gold in such a way that lighter, almost white shades could be produced. Accordingly, jewels made of white gold were modern and exclusive. The diamond-set elements originate from an Art Deco watch bracelet, the bracelet of one of those watches with a tiny dial which are hardly worn today. Our goldsmith has added the amethysts with their settings and the gold earwires to the white gold elements of the years around 1930, thus creating these earrings entirely in the spirit of Art Deco. The movements of the amethysts create a new play of reflections with each movement.
