Launch Slideshow

Capturing the essence of the European society women and Hollywood stars who inspired them, Retro-period jewels are celebrated for brightly coloured stones, bold scale and playful design. Such pieces presented women with a whimsical style outlet during the depression and wartime years and later mirrored the joy that followed the end of Word War II. Retro jewels still hold their allure – 11 statement pieces from our sales in New York, London and Hong Kong reflect the spirit of the era.
