History: The retro period (1939-1949) is generalized as having chunky, oversized jewelry.  Beginning in the 30’s during the depression and continuing to the post war period, the actual styles evolved to reflect the restraints of the times.  Even though the Retro Period is said to have originated in France, the onset of World War 2 paved the way for American jewelers to create their own interpretations of the period.  With the war’s end, large items became all the rage, specifically highlighting bulky colorful gemstones
