Following World War II, the jewelry of the 1950s and 1960s was markedly more feminine, precious and elegant. In a sharp break from the stark clothing styles of the 1940s, Mid-Century jewelry includes whimsical portrayals of nature like animals, flowers and vines. Other popular motifs included starbursts, people and highly textured pieces made of mesh, brushed or braided metal
And with the war over, there was a return to traditional fine jewelry materials like platinum and diamonds. Similarly, Mid-Century jewelry brought back the popularity of matching jewelry sets that brought a single motif through a necklace, brooch, bracelet and set of earrings.
