    The important archaeological discoveries in the first half of the century
    brought about an “archaeological fashion”. Goldsmith specialised
    in reproducing faithfully shapes and techniques used in ancient times.
    Following this new trend, goldsmiths made exact replicas
    or re-elaborated Hellenic, Roman or Etruscan jewels.


Art movement of the 1890-1915
period which was inspired directly by nature,
with floral motifs and wavy shapes created in silver (often preferred to gold),
enamels and semi-precious stones.

Art Déco

Art movement that took place after 1915 up to 1939,
where the appeal of gold,
platinum and onyx is rediscovered
through essential and pure geometric forms.


The most sought after jewels become those by famous artists, mostly in yellow gold
and with less demanding shapes to wear,
often autographed by renowned artists and sculptors,
strongly attracted by the evocative power of precious stones
which were believed since ancient times to
dispense luck, health and joy.
