History: Outsized cocktail rings, bracelets with wide bands and three dimensional clasps, large pendants and bulky necklaces were popular in the 1940’s.  Retro Jewelry is a fusion of two styles; motifs from the Victorian era and modern romantic designs were both loved.  These jewelry items were worn to express femininity, a trait that was considered important to express, now that women were dressing in a more masculine style of straight skirts and tight fitting jackets.
