If you had to distill the Art Nouveau into three words, perhaps "artistic, feminine, botanical" would suffice. Yet, as accurate as they are, those three words don't quite capture the emotion and mystique that Art Nouveau jewelry can often evoke. Artisanal practices, a reverence for aesthetics, and a rejection of industrialization all inspired this style. The Art Nouveau period was relatively brief, yet its influence on jewelry and the decorative arts can still be seen to this day.

Please view and inspect any photos closely. We endeavor to fully disclose all condition information clearly and concisely, however, please note that what qualifies as excellent condition for historical jewelry differs from modern and contemporary pieces; please take the age of the piece into account when examining the piece.
