Baroque jewelry art

The baroque jewelry art spans from about 1600 to 1775, 150 years, it is one of the most versatile among the art eras. The term “Baroque” came from Portuguese jewelers, meaning “irregular formed pearl”. It was preceded by the renaissance and succeeded by the neoclassicism style. Differentiating early baroque works of art from the renaissance is not easy, especially for jewelry, as there is no cut-off date to separate the renaissance from the baroque period. Baroque period can be divided into three periods: Early Baroque (1600 to 1660), Late Baroque (1660 to 1725), Rococo (1725 to 1775).
