Jugenstil Silver and 9k Rose Gold Chain

About Details History

Jugenstil is the name of the German period of art and design that coincided with, and was influenced by, Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts movement in Britain. Jugenstil bridged the last decade of the 19th century through to the outbreak of the first world war. As with most all art movements of length, there were variations in the designs produced over time and by location. This Jugenstil chain - with elongated silver links punctuated with rose gold ones - was made by the German jeweler Gustav Hauber around 1920. It would make a versatile base to hold all your charms.

ART DECO (1915 – 1940) Art Deco is highly recognizable for its minimalism and futurism. Simultaneous art movements—Cubism, Bauhaus—informed the geometric style, along with “exotic” foreign influences like the Ballet Russe. Motifs like ziggurats and sunbursts, stripped of visual clutter, conveyed the optimism of an increasingly technological world. In jewelry, the predominant use of white metals let colorful gems take center stage. Stones that were opaque and true in color, like lapis lazuli, onyx, jade, coral, and opal were worked into designs alongside more precious and brilliant gems, like diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds. Extra-long beaded necklaces and tasseled “sautoirs” followed the narrow flapper silhouette. The baguette cut was an Art Deco innovation, and the decade saw increased use of other angular diamond cuts, like the precise caliber cut and the emerald cut. Synthetic gems, like sapphires, were celebrated as a scientific marvel. Marcel Tolkowsky, 21 years old at the time, published the design for the round brilliant cut in 1919.
