The Art Deco Era is famous for being the “Gatsby” or “Roaring Twenties” Era. Many gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. During the Art Deco Period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Popular beginning from the Victorian Period and well into the Art Deco Period, Pools of Light Necklaces were originally inspired by the Chinoiserie Style. This style incorporated Chinese Motifs such as lanterns. One of the most notable features about these necklaces is that they are generally made of clear rock crystal orbs. This material has the most transparency, which fulfills the purpose of a Pools of Light Necklace. The optical spectacle achieved is that the curve of their sphere shape works like a flipped lens, and thus give an upside-down depiction of whatever is behind it. Essentially, less obstruction within the sphere results in a clearer visible image. There are many beaded necklaces which have a similar convex lens effect, and take after the idea behind these Pools of Lights Necklaces. During The Art Deco & Art Nouveau Era’s Moonstone was brought into jewelry by designers such as Tiffany’s & Rene Lalique. Moonstone is often symbolized with the moon due to the Opalescent hue that it gives off that reminds the viewer of the moon peering through a thin layer of clouds. Rene Lalique is a name synonymous with the world of jewelry, consistently ranked as one of the most influential if not the most influential jewelry of the last couple hundred of years. Lalique jewelry first started in the Art Nouveau Period and gained popularity during this Era. His use of Iridescent glass, much like Tiffany & Co combined with his organic and beautiful designs brought Lalique to be a house hold name throughout the world during this Era.
