In the Art Nouveau Era, stylized flowers became popular. Designs were curvaceous and whimsical, and flowers never used in jewelry before became the norm – water lilies, fuchsias, and poppies.
This stunning stylized example features pearls all throughout the shoulders and petals, with a mesmerizing opal in the center. Opal is considered a stone representing hope, innocence, and purity, with strong connotations of happiness and confidence. Pearls, on the other hand, are the ultimate symbol for wisdom. Valued for their calming effects, pearls represent serenity, while being able to strengthen valuable relationships and convey a sense of safety.
