In order to make a comparison between the elements that affect the changes and the dominant tendencies in the design of jewelry at different times, I will briefly trace its development since the beginning of the twentieth century. This historical background will also allow me to point out how the style of jewelry has changed in the past decades, and the events influencing these changes, while also giving me a better idea of how these have influenced my thesis work.
