A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period.
Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1940. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specially cut to fit the design of the piece. During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would usually take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Porcelain is a ceramic material that is very suitable for creating beautiful tableware and jewelry. It is a hard, heat resistant, opaque ceramic, which makes it a wonderfully tough decorative material.In jewelry the porcelain pieces were/are painted and glazed and set in brooches, earrings and necklaces. It can be glazed for a lovely shine, or left unglazed for a more earthy, natural look.
Unglazed porcelain is called biscuit porcelain, which was popularized by Wedgwood, the British ceramic company. Porcelain served as a popular "canvas" for miniature portrait painting in the 19th century.
