Further information

Jewellery produced during and immediately after the Second World War (1939-45) is often referred to as retro or cocktail jewellery. It marks the end of the Art Deco period. Straight lines and geometric designs were replaced by softer curves. Textured metal designs such as volutes, fans, and ribbons were often used to give the pieces a three-dimensional appearance.
