Austro-Hungarian jewelry is known as the epitome of ‘extra‘ with its larger-than-life gemstones and motifs. The Austro-Hungarian empire dates between the 1860s to the 1920s and was one of the most powerful western empires in the world. The combination of the two nations in this 80 year period saw some of the most bedazzling and out-of-this-world creations we have ever laid our eyes on.

Austria-Hungary’s close proximity and alliance with Germany and Italy led to many overlapping jewelry influences, especially Renaissance revival and Holbeinesque. Holbeinesque was a type of Renaissance revival jewelry that rose to prominence in the 1870s. Holbeinesque literally meant “in the manner of Hans Holbein” who was one of the most prolific German portrait painters in the 16th century. These were mainly large droplet gemstone pendants and necklaces that were modeled on the jewelry portrayed in Renaissance portraits.

This stunning example features sterling silver, garnet, emerald, and pearl pastes acting as the dangling gems. These colors are perfect for the Holiday season and the piece overall adds festivity to any look or collection!
