Art Deco is a style that appeared in France at the beginning of the 20th century. It has influenced the design of architecture, furniture, jewellery and fashion, among other things. Its name (Arts Décoratifs) derives from the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts held in Paris in 1925, and combined modern style with fine craftsmanship and rich materials. Art Deco came to represent luxury and glamour. However, just after the Great Depression the style became more understated. New materials began to be utilised, including chrome, stainless steel and plastic. A sleeker form of the style, called Streamline Moderne, appeared in the 1930s; it featured curving forms and smooth, polished surfaces.
Platinum is one of the least reactive metals. It has remarkable resistance to corrosion, even at high temperatures, and is therefore considered a noble metal. Platinum's rarity as a metal has caused advertisers to associate it with exclusivity and wealth.
