The variety of this type of baroque jewellery ranged from simple, straight designs, to elegant and intricate designs. The main difference between the two styles was that the more complex designs were usually made out of jewels, and in the case of intricate designs, the jewels were usually included on the inside, in the design, as in the design of the Star of David. Modern jewellery also had an influence on the design and style of baroque jewellery.
