Modern & Contemporary Jewelry

As the world left World War II behind, wealth was redistributed to a rapidly growing upper middle class, which had an appetite for luxury. In response to this growing demand, household makers such as Cartier, Tiffany & Co., and Van Cleef & Arpels continued to innovate and raise the quality of their artistry, craftsmanship, gem quality, and design, making ostentatious use of gemstones propelled by newly discovered gem deposits of diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and emeralds.
