Art Deco was an international highly decorative style than ran from 1919 to 1939.

Diamonds were the major gemstones that studded jewellery for the previous decades, so there was a push for bright coloured gemstones, as well as onyx and black enamel to signal a change in the times. They used Emeralds, jade, coral, lapis lazuli, and turquoise, among others, that were inlaid into gold, as East Asian and Egyptian influences made their way to the Western world.

This, however, did not stop the dominance of diamonds. Platinum became more common as the base metal, because of its malleability and durability. The clean, chromatic sheen supplemented the lustre of diamonds, lending to a luxurious bright -white aesthetic.
