The Great Gatsby Promotional Image - set in the 1920's

The Roaring 20's were luxurious, glamorous and indulgent. Cocktail parties and jazz music defined the times and traditional morals were rejected for a freer and more daring lifestyle.  

Today the 1920's is an era that many people love to indulge in. With films such as The Great Gatsby, and TV series like Downton Abbey and Boardwalk Empire airing, our exposure to the imagery of this era has been increasing over the last few years.

Many a party is themed to the 1920's, and just as many people take inspiration from the 20's for their every day outfits. There is also a booming music scene of reproducing the 1920's music – either performing the songs created at the time, or re-imagining modern music into the style popular then.

Art Deco

This is a term used to describe a specific style that was most favoured in the 1920's. Geometric shapes and grand ornamentation is the form that the “art deco” style takes. A very distinct style, recognisable across almost every platform – from clothes to buildings; the 20's was a time of exploration and bold statements. 

Vivid colours were generally used, set with either gold, silver, black or white to complement. Sharp lines, mixed with smooth rounded shapes characterised this era.

1920's Fashion

The 20's was a time when fashion became more flexible. Men started wearing short suit jackets for causal everyday wear, and women were able to explore shorter skirts, and trousers. 

Accessories were very important to everyone – the hair accessories, beads and bags for the women, and hats, ties and suspenders for the men, alongside cufflinks (of course!)

Our 1920's Inspired Products

1920's style cufflinks in gold and rhodium

These Duncan Walton's designer cufflinks in gold and rhodium are an exemplary example of the 1920's style. 

These cufflinks are beautifully made, and the shapes and colours are very reminiscent of the 1920's – and especially remind us of the film The Great Gatsby.

A block of colour for your cufflinks can work well for the 1920's style, when complemented with the right outfit. 

Our gold plated square or oval cufflinks provide just that splash of colour that is needed to add that extra bit of luxury to your outfit.
