The mid-20th Century includes two decades of intense stylistic shifts in jewellery. These shifts can be seen to mirror the social changes between the 1950s to 1960-70s. The diamond maintained its high status but larger stones were increasingly reserved for evening jewellery, and engagement rings.This shift was supported by Harry Winston’s status as ‘King of Diamonds’ and De Beers 1947 ‘Diamonds are Forever’ advertising campaign. Necklines lowered and sleeves disappeared with full skirted, off-the-shoulder dresses perfect for elaborate collar-length bib necklaces and broad bracelets to be shown off during the 1950s.
