Like all art, the zeitgeist of a particular era is written in the design of its jewelry. It is said that Art Nouveau jewelry was a reaction to French society at the time, including women's fight to secure more rights for themselves outside of the home. The nation's loss in the Franco-Prussian War left the French worried about what would occur if women got jobs and education, and worried the birth rate would then drop, leaving the country with fewer men to support future armies. This explains the feminist flavor of Art Nouveau.

A superb watch chain circa 1890-1910.  With an original embellished dog clip and English hallmarks, this piece likely once held a ladies' watch, but is now quite prepared to tote whatever you please!
