History: The 1960’s were a period with very little restrictions.  It is also referred to as the “Anything Goes” period where cabochon gemstones were mixed with artistic and abstract metals, some with jagged edges and other with textured metal.  And by the mid 60’s jewelry was worn with abandon both during the day and at night, multiple bracelets, rings on each finger, earrings and a necklace were not too much for an outfit.  These design elements were used to create jagged outlines that reflected the freedom that America was experiencing at that time.
