History:
The Baroque period of artistic style that graced the 17th century, had seen a revival in mid century jewelry, furniture, decor, and more. Costume jewelry displayed themes of baroque, with a mixture of gold tones, florals, and pearls. Popular in Italian art and history, Baroque themes and elements of rich reds, and gilded leaves were often seen in the dress of Italian actresses, such as Gina Lollobrigida in her ethereal role as Esmeralda.
