The Contemporary Period is a broad term with an elusive definition. It refers to jewellery made during a 45 year period from the 1980s to the present day. It refers to big stylistic and ideological shifts stimulating the jewellers during this time: from Studio and Auteur jewellery to Costume, Fashion and Fine jewellery. Contemporary jewellery is best summarised not by precise physical attributes but as a modern attitude to the practice of making and designing jewellery.
