A journey into the past – with lavish jewellery


Let us take you on a journey into the past. We will visit the age of Art Nouveau and the Roaring 1920s. Back then, jewellery expressed cool elegance as well as lavish luxury and extravagance. The great jewellers combined sapphires, emerald and amethysts with design elements from Egypt, Japan and China, creating a modern and unique use of forms.

The breathtakingly beautiful, exquisite pieces of Art Nouveau and Art Deco jewellery that will be presented at the upcoming Rapp auction all display an impressive level of craftsmanship. A selection of enchanting rings, earrings, brooches, necklaces and bracelets will be auctioned in the spring of 2022. We are delighted to present some samples from our selection of jewellery from that era.
