  • 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.
