Art Deco Jewels in The Modern World

I still find it hard to believe that at one point in time, jewelry was often regarded as a trivial luxury. 'Just that extra touch that completed your outfit - that's all. The right type of jewelry often makes the outfit. Especially Art Deco Jewelry. Back then as it is now, art deco jewelry truly reached the zenith of its stylishness. The details of such jewelry mimicked the fine craftsmanship often seen in the works of furniture from artists such as Ruhlmann and Dunand. I imagine that's why this style of jewelry continues to do so well today throughout the most noted auction houses, and posh antique fairs.
