Art Deco Rubies

Art Deco is my favorite style of jewelry, with its flair of design and the use of unusual combinations of gemstones. Art Deco is a style of architecture and design which first appeared in France just before World War I, reached its high point during the 1925 Paris Exposition of Decorative Arts, and extended into the 1940’s. Today, authentic Art Deco period jewelry and art objects, as well as reproductions, remain esteemed by wearers of jewelry and collectors. In the following gallery I’ve included ruby jewelry and art objects which greatly appeal to me.
