Modern elegance

Stylish white gold bracelet with sapphires & diamonds, circa 1970

The 1960s took a different approach to jewellery design than the decade before. Whereas the post-World War II economic miracle era called for jewelry with large shapes and yellow gold appearances that heralded the new prosperity, finer, more feminine designs in white gold with sparkling diamonds were now in keeping with the taste of the times. Often the diamonds in the straightforward, graphic designs were complemented by dark blue sapphires, giving the pieces an even more refined appearance. The settings of the designs break away from the heavy lust for shiny yellow gold of the late Art Deco and are instead made of light white gold. And each piece of jewellery gains lightness, lightness and elegance. The appearance of this bracelet is in keeping with this taste and is an original of the time that appears modern today as it did then: set in the centre of a polished link bracelet are five ornamental links alternately set with dark blue sapphires and white brilliant-cut diamonds. This gives the well-preserved band an accentuated centerpiece in sparklingly cool shapes. The design offers unfussy, almost casual elegance. And yet, at the same time, it convinces with its rich features.
