The following examples of art deco design prove that timeless style really does hold up over the years

Chaumet

An architectural theme runs throughout Chaumet's Perspectives line and the jeweller, whose first great client was Empress Joséphine, doesn't disappoint with the collection's Skyline necklace. An asymmetrical silhouette made from yellow gold is framed using vibrant emeralds and sparkling white diamonds.

Chanel

A seamless blend of pink gold and platinum is used to weave the structure of this cocktail ring, which showcases an handful of pastel-pink spinels and diamonds. It's easy to revel in the controlled chaos of Chanel's 70-piece Escale à Venise high jewellery collection, which is defined by carefully stacked slices of gold.

Moussaieff

This high jewellery bangle by Moussaieff features a dramatically long strand of white gold, which is mounted with dazzling diamonds that weigh a total of 19.04 carats. Breathtakingly beautiful, two coloured diamonds in blue-grey or orange-pink sit on either side of this meandering structure.

Fred

These tasselled earrings by Fred come in a vibrant blue that’s elevated by chunky cuts of diamond-set white gold. Perfect for the cooler months ahead, each one is made to reflect the inner beauty and the uniqueness of its wearer.

Boucheron

Realising that the 1920s was a decade of change,  Boucheron's creative director Claire Choisne was guided by how the art deco period ushered in the modern world when she created her Histoire de Style, Art Déco collection. Inspired by the jewellery designed by Boucheron for the Maharaja of Patiala, whisper-thin strands of white gold and platinum are set with black lacquer, onyx and diamonds, before being mounted with emerald beads.
