As the preeminent jeweler of the Art Deco era,
Tiffany created a style of jewelry with white diamonds
and colorful gemstones that epitomized the new
American glamour. This bowtie bracelet characterizes
this celebrated style. An emerald-cut aquamarine is
framed by round brilliant and square diamonds in a
platinum setting tailored with geometric precision.
Bows have long been a popular motif for diamond jewelry.
The Tiffany Archives contain Garland-style bows that were
in fashion from the Gilded Age through the 1930s.
Among these are gem-encrusted brooches that were
hinged in several places, allowing the ornament to move
and the diamonds to sparkle in the light.
