Many comparisons have frequently been drawn between the current pandemic and the Spanish Flu pandemic, the latter of which took place in 1918.
One prediction is that after the current pandemic eventually subsides, it’ll be followed by giddy progress in the arts and creative fields, much like what happened during the Roaring Twenties.
Graff’s festive high jewellery collection is a nod to the Roaring Twenties.
The decade has often served as a prime example of social, political and artistic progress – all served with a notable side of optimism and rich decadence. Let’s face it, we could do all with some optimism and decadence right now – cue British jewellery maison Graff and its festive high jewellery collection, which was inspired by the ’20s.
Fantastic colour and geometric shapes are a thing in this collection, which primarily uses yellow and white diamonds, as well as emeralds and sapphires.
Jewellery in the ’20s paralleled what was happening in the visual arts, architecture and industrial design of that period – think clean, geometric lines and rich explosions of colour – which is what you see being evoked in Graff’s collection.
Go big or go home in this necklace that boasts a remarkable 56-carat radiant cut yellow diamond pendant.
And frankly after two brutal years, what wouldn’t we give to be all dressed up to attend a party again? While that may not happen just yet, we’ll just take refuge in Graff’s decadent old-world campaign and collection for the moment.
