This beautiful piece comes from the Art Deco era! The Art Deco era is famous for being the “Gatsby” or “Roaring Twenties” era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Antique Turkish, Islamic, and Bedouin jewelry all share similar ancestral and stylistic roots, and influenced each other through trade for many, many years. This can largely be attributed to the expansion of the Ottoman Empire, which valued art and craftsmanship, and fostered the continuation of Arabic arts and calligraphy. The reign of the Ottomans in the 16th and 17th centuries introduced Turkish designs to Islamic motifs and the nomadic Bedouin culture, melding a range of styles into beautiful arabesques; repeating rhythmic patterns, which often feature geometric floral and organic designs. Filigree metal working has been around for thousands of years, however it was perfected by the Phoenicians and Etruscan civilizations. It involves stamping out a design in your metal and hand bending and twirling until your design is formed. It is considered one of the most difficult metal working processes.
