FURTHER INFORMATION:

These hair accessories are made in an elaborate and glitzy style which we now call neo-Baroque. This style is also nowadays often called Hollywood Regency in the USA.

The Baroque was originally an important art movement of the late 16th and early 17th centuries, and was characterised by rich and elaborate decoration, heavy scrollwork, and a great deal of opulent gilding. This return to much more elaborate and colourful jewellery was a reaction against the much less colourful and geometric style called Art Deco, which began about 1915 and lasted until the late 1930s.

This vogue for more colourful and elaborate jewellery forms was led from the USA, where some of the most beautiful Baroque or Hollywood Regency style costume jewellery was produced. With newly developed techniques of mass-production America took over from Paris as the leading exponent of stylish costume jewellery for the wider market.
