Like Art Nouveau, Art Deco was an artistic movement, not limited to jewellery. It cultivated an ideology that is characterised by a celebration of the modern and mechanical. Like the Cubist art movement, Art Deco jewellery focuses on the relationship between form and function. Clean lines and geometry are dominant.
