An important element in shaping jewelry of XVIII-XIX century were quite complex decorations made of precious stones, gold and silver. Some ornaments picked bouquets of bright stones: amethyst tulips, ruby ​​roses, aquamarine daisies, turquoise forget-me-nots, butterflies with transparent agate wings, and chalcedony flies. Besides, Art Nouveau jewelers used feminine and fantasy figures, stylized flowers, vines, leaves, scrolls, birds, serpents and insects in beautiful enamels. Gemstones and pearls were incorporated into the designs of gold work. Jewelers widely used techniques of casting and stamping, hand and guilloche engraving. In addition, used matte and shiny gold and gold green, yellow and red, opalescent enamel, pearl, engraved and smooth. Balance, strict symmetry ornaments were essential in this style, and many pieces were brightly colored. In fact, Art jewelers rebelled against the mass production of jewelry.

Art nouveau, decorative style flourishing in most of western Europe and the USA from about 1890 to World War I. It was a deliberate attempt to create a new style in reaction to the academic ‘historicism’ of much 19th- century art. And its most characteristic theme being the use of sinuous asymmetrical lines based on plant forms. Primarily an art of ornament, its most typical manifestations occurred in applied art, decoration, and illustration. However, its influence can also be seen in the work of many painters and sculptors.

Art deco, a style in the decorative arts defined by the International Exposition of Decorative and Industrial Art held in Paris in 1925. Although, applied principally to the decorative arts and interior design of the 1920s and 1930s, the term can be extended to analogous styles in architecture and painting. Concentrating on stylishness tuned to domestic use and popular consumption, and it is characterized by geometric patterning, sharp edges, and flat, bright colors. Besides, often involved the use of enamel, chrome, bronze, and highly polished stone. The simplicity of the style can be seen as classicizing in spirit, attested by the Egyptian and Greek motifs (for example, the schematized Egyptian scarab). Although it led to a re-confirmation, in both Europe and the USA, of the role of the craftsman-designer, popularization of the style often resulted in the mass production of less refined objects.
