Jewellery produced during and immediately after the Second World War (1939-45) is often called Retro or ‘Cocktail’ jewellery. It marked the end of the Art Deco period. Straight lines were exchanged for softer curves. Textured metal designs: scrolls, fans and ribbons, were commonly used to give a three-dimensional quality to pieces.
