An exceptional art nouveau pearl ring with ruby accents, this rare ring typifies the coveted organic lines of the French art nouveau- perfectly in line with Belle Époque sensibilities. It is becoming harder and harder to locate all original examples of art nouveau jewel splendor and when we found this beauty with her sloping shoulders and massive phallic pearl, a collective hush fell over the office. We NEVER find them quite like this…

Fashion houses like Worth & Callot Soeurs commanded the transition out of 19th century buckled silhouettes to a more natural form- but it was the art nouveau styles in jewels such as this that cemented these fashions as so much more than ephemeral textile temptations. By turning art nouveau shapes into legacy defining decorative arts, jewels lead fashion and rendered it, in many ways, immortal. This Navette has stood the test of time to underscore this very phenomenon.
