Jewelry and other forms of art during the Edwardian era were elaborate and decorative. Though the 20th century had begun, the Victorian influence was still strong, and this was reflected in the era’s classic, feminine patterns, including jewelry with hearts, flowers, and lacy filigree.
Similarly, jewelry from the Art Nouveau period introduced sinuous curves, breathtaking designs – and the feminine form. Artisanal practices, a reverence for aesthetics, and a rejection of industrialization all informed 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, like this stunning piece.
