Jazz Age jewelry is coming back? Yes, in the opinion of many in
the fashion and entertainment industries.
Jazz age jewelry is a very recognizable symbol of the "Roaring
20's" in America, and Europe. World War One had ended in an
armistice, capitalism was embraced, and the economies of the Allied
countries had been unleashed.
It was a time to enjoy prosperity, and young adults seemed determined
to "have a ball" as they often said. "Outlandish" was
a preferred term of their parents... in that respect, things have not
The cars, the music, the clothes, and the jewelry that was adopted by
the younger generation were distinctive, so much so, they are easily
The Flapper dresses the emancipated women wore, the Charleston beat
they danced to, and scandalous behavior such as drinking and smoking in
public were engaged in because they were excesses.
(Art Deco (dekou) was a new and struggling motif introduced in Europe
during this time. The geometric designs and "machine age" look
didn't really become popular until the designers incorporated the bold
colors and lavish ornamentation of the Jazz Age).
Glitz was queen in jewelry of the 1920's. But much of it became
tasteful qlitz, due to designers of the era fully embracing the trend.
They turned the style to "glitz and glamour" - and fine jewelry.
Nature themes, such as flowers, leaves, feathers, and animal designs
were combined with clusters of colored gems and diamonds set in gold and
platinum. Rich ladies joined the trend, adorning themselves with fine
jewelry brooches, bracelets, hair jewelry or headbands, and, of course,
necklaces and earrings.
Jazz Age jewelry is coming back for several reasons, according to
First of all, its fun jewelry. Fun to
wear, and fun for creative designers to create. Some boutique
jewelry shops have been recreating this style for a few years now.
Customers are longing for happier times
while striving for economic recovery in a weak economy.
Movies available on DVD and playing on
TV. Films such as Chicago with Catherine Zeta Jones, a couple
of Clint Eastwood jazz-themed movies, and Bess Armstrong's opening
scene in Tom Selleck's High Road To China.
Jazz age jewelry is expected to strengthen its comeback with the
introduction of the 2013 movie The Great Gatsby (2013). This
adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel is expected to spark new
interest in the Roaring 20's fashions.
Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the film which It follows the life and times
of 1920's millionaire Jay Gatsby.
This major production is scheduled to receive a strong marketing push,
a lot of publicity, and social buzz. The Great Gatsby (2013) opens
May 10, 2013, and is enjoying strong pre-sales.
Jazz Age jewelry is coming back as part of the trend
setters' desire to
recreate more carefree times. You can expect to see it in all price
points... fine jewelry, commercial jewelry, and costume jewelry.
