1980 - 1999 - Eighties and Nineties
Jewelry of the 1980-1990s came as a consequence of a change in society. It was a time of significant social movements for equality. Women were fighting for their rights in the workplace, and this era represented women, buying jewelry for themselves, not as wives but as independent working women. The 1980s was also the time and birth of the Internet and the Motorola phone. The jewelry was as confident as women, as progressive as the innovations, and as loud as the new age of music—a time where it was all gold, the bigger, the better, a time of golden opulence.
