Art Deco brooches reflected the stylised aesthetic of the period with strong geometric shapes often repeated, bold colours and colour contrasts. While white gold was used platinum was the premier metal of choice for fine jewellers allowing fineness and crispness of detail. Precious gems- rubies sapphires, emeralds, but also aquamarines and other gems complemented these settings. Silver often combined with onyx, coral, lapis lazuli and enamel figured prominently in the  bolder often confronting industrial aesthetic of groups of French and German jewellers. These are the perfect brooches today to enhance business and casual fashions.
