This listing is for the item only.The Art Deco era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1940. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specially cut to fit the design of the piece. During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would usually take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Etruscan Revival jewelry was first popularized during the early 1800s when an Etruscan tomb was discovered just outside of Rome. Upon its discovery, jewelers worked to imitate and understand the metalworking techniques with which the jewelry was made. Not only was Etruscan jewelry a luxurious addition to the Victorian styles of the day. But it introduced new ideas and decorations. These Etruscan tombs contained jewelry adorned with long and flowing geometric lines and motifs, mythological imagery and scenery, and celestial elements. The techniques of repoussé, filigree, and granulation are all attributed to the Etruscans. Agates are a semi-precious variety of gemstones composed of chalcedony and quartz layers that vary highly in grain and coloration, and usually show multi-color bands. It comes in many different colors including white, red, black, yellow, brown, or pink.
The hues and bands are dependent on environmental pressure and temperature, and the mineral contents of each stone. Each agate is unique because of these myriad factors, and even slabs cut from the same specimen will vary in coloration and design. The stone was discovered on the shore of the Greek river Achates in the 3rd Century BC, and has been used for carvings and jewelry since.
