This era focused on women, and the beauty of nature and the pieces were often large. Enamel was a standard material used in Art Nouveau jewelry as the period was more about the importance of the design over the materials used to create it. The Art Nouveau period happened before the start of the first World War, when mass manufacturing took over the production of many products, including some jewelry.Cut steel jewelry is a style that researchers argue date back to the 16th century. A popular type of jewelry during wartime due to a decrease in trade and access to precious metals and stones, cut steel jewelry makers often sought to replicate the sparkly and eye-catching beauty of more expensive types of jewelry. It was particularly popular during the Napoleonic Wars. Because steel jewelry is more fragile than other antique jewelry, very little has survived to present day, making it a valuable and collectible type of jewelry today.
