The diamonds of the 1970s will be a bit revolutionary, breaking the classical codes of previous decades in a very eclectic style.
They are quite voluminous and frequently highly bright, manufactured largely of yellow gold, and are inspired by African or American-Indian ethnic themes. There were items with an ethnic style and others with flowers that reminded us of nature. The usage of feathers and furs grew more fashionable during this time. We also see a return to the ancient, to ancient Egypt, with jewelry featuring scarabs in hard stones.
Hard stones, sometimes used raw, will also make a comeback in the 1970s: malachite, lapis lazuli, carnelian, turquoise, aventurine, ivory, coral, tiger's eye, dioptase.
Some of the diamonds developed during those years are still popular and profitable today. Van Cleef & Arpels' Alhmambra pattern is one example, as is Piaget's ultra-flat watch with hard stone dials.
Jean Vendôme, the Frenchman, David Webb, the American, Haroldo Burle Marx, the Brazilian, Andrew Grima, the British, Jean Dinh Van, the Franco-Vietnamese, Gilbert Albert, the Swiss, or Roland Schad are among the iconic designers.
Some of the diamonds developed in the 1970s are still quite stylish and popular today. The Alhmambra pattern by Van Cleef & Arpels is one example. This collection's necklaces, rings, and even earrings are always the house's best-sellers.
The defining jewelry of the 1970s is formed of stones, feathers, and beads, and is bright and unique in appearance. The 1970s were a decade of transition. It took the bohemian style of the 1960s and amplified it. The designs have become more colorful and dramatic in look and color. There were several floral patterns and intriguing designs.
The majority of jewelry trends throughout this decade were influenced by popular counterculture views, rock music, and disco. Even now, many admire 1970s jewelry designs. The fact that we are witnessing the second coming of the counterculture movement with the people indicates that 1970s jewelry trends are still relevant today.
