Art Deco is my favorite time period for jewelry–1920s & 1930s. The earlier jewelry of the 1920s usually features a lot of filigree, still taking influence from the Edwardian Era, with the later Art Deco pieces transitioning toward geometric patterns. I have seen rings that actually combine both of those characteristics–like filigree work that is geometric. The above jewelry can all be found at 1stdibs, with sellers like DK Bressler & Co., The Three Graces, Lang Antiques, and Harvey Kessler Jewellery, in that order.
