History:  Most 1940’s jewelry falls into the ‘Retro Period’ which almost coincides with WWII.  Everything in regards to Retro jewelry tended to be oversized because of Hollywood glamor that was depicted in movies, a fantasy that allowed Americans to escape their thoughts about the war.  As a result, jewelry became much bolder as people tried to mimic what was seen in Hollywood spotlights.
