  • We don’t get too many Art Nouveau pieces in due to their rarity, and it makes it so very special for us when we get our hands on one. Featured here is an elegant and moderne Art Nouveau necklace, with the true to the era articulated drop pendant. Dated 1910, the necklace features 7 old cut diamonds in its design, set in 15ct white on yellow gold, with a 15ct integral fine link yellow gold chain. What we love about this necklace, apart from the gorgeous design, is the mix of gold metals.

  • Art Nouveau (1880 - 1910):
    Beginning in France in the late 1800s, this was more of a movement than an era. It was an artistic protest against the industrial age which spread throughout Europe and the United States. The Art Nouveau Period saw a return to nature with intricately detailed pieces of jewellery being made in gold and silver with a wide range of coloured gemstones. The female form was made to look ethereal and enamelling techniques became very popular, being used in ways that had never been seen before.

    Edwardian & Belle Époque Period (1901 - 1910):
Named after the reigning King Edward VII and with notable influences from French Rococo décor, this period was the shortest in antique jewellery history. However, it was during this time that platinum was introduced into the art of jewellery making which changed the way diamonds could be set. The popular jewellery design at the time was the “garland” which flowed on from the Art Nouveau period as it focused on nature but more particularly, on flowers and leaves often arranged in some circular shape. Through the use of milgrain and pierced and engraved metals, the Belle Époque designs gave way to jewellery that mimicked the delicate nature of lace and ribbon with natural pearls and old mine cut diamonds being the material of choice.
