Art Deco Jewelry Trends
1. Hair Ornamentation
One of the major Art Deco jewelry trends that emerged was hair ornamentation. As women cut their hair shorter, they were no longer able to create elaborate styles using their own hair. So they accessorized with jeweled hair clips and combs, diadems, and tiaras.
Also, as hairstyles became shorter, earrings became longer. It was very common to see earrings reaching down to the shoulder.
3. Jeweled Carrying Cases
Another jewelry trend that surfaced during this time was the mini carrying case. "The new acceptability of make-up and smoking led to the development of luxurious cosmetics cases and cigarette holders. Made of carved hardstones or enamelled and gem-set gold, these accessories became an important aspect of Art Deco fashion." (Phillips, 2003)
