Vintage Jewellery: 1930–2000
These later decades offer us no less style and quality than the antique eras served up – if we look in the right places.
Though the post-war years set off in a less than flamboyant manor, the designs resulting from this transition were as clean and elegant as any jewellery Scandinavia has produced. Once clear of the dark post-war years, the late 1900s became a bourgeoning playground for Scandinavian jewellery designers who saw an opening for more rugged, sculptural pieces.
From the sharp, fine lines of Arno Malinowski to the brave, brutalist designs of Hannu Ikonen and Björn Weckström – this is a playful grouping with lots to explore.
