History: Many of the fashion trends that happened in prior decades were seamlessly maintained in the following decades.  Hence, many fashion trends that occurred in the 1960’s remained current and fashionable in the 70’s.  During the 1960’s, yellow gold tone metal, the color of choice, was either engraved, hammered, or twisted to heighten the visual impact.  Random shapes, abstract designs and strong three-dimensional qualities were transformed into an expression of relaxed chic, and this aesthetic philosophy carried into the 1970’s creating a freedom in expression in jewelry
