Deco-dence

One of the most popular jewelry design styles—one that never seems to go away for more than a few years without a resurgence—is back in the spotlight for 2003.

Art Deco jewelry, which made a name for itself nearly a century ago, is showing its endurance as designers and manufacturers rediscover the beauty of its clean lines, bold styling, and geometric forms. The jewelry fits well with the clean and sophisticated clothes for the season, as it allows for a bold statement that is fun but free of fussiness.
