Art Deco Jewellery Sparkles in Rome

Sotheby’s senior international jewellery specialist Daniela Mascetti was in Rome this week for a lively evening at the Palazzo Odescalchi.

Guests at the event enjoyed a lecture about the thrilling Art Deco jewellery period, one of the most glamorous times in both fashion and art.

Afterwards, while enjoying cocktails, there was an opportunity to view selected highlights from the Cecil Beaton Archive with specially picked photographs featuring women in jewellery.

Afterwards, Daniela Mascetti said: “I thoroughly enjoyed preparing this talk and assembling the many images that helped me to show how the jewels of this eclectic  period were the consequence of early 20th Century artistic experiences that spanned from Vienna Secession to  Fauvism and  Cubism, and were inspired  by a variety of ancient and exotic civilisations.

“I was glad to see the audience reacting positively to the juxtaposition of images of jewels and dress fashion, jewels and works of art from Oriental civilisation, jewels and archaeological remains and appreciating how tightly inter-related these fields are.”
