INQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM

ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Art Nouveau, "new art" in French, evolved as a backlash against the machine-made, flashier jewelry of the previous era. The aesthetic proves that utterly enchanting jewelry can be created without the use of many, or any, stones, and that form itself is a captivating element. Exquisitely colored with shimmering shades of pastel enamels, this pretty pendant presents a handful of flowers--two centered with natural pearls--that connect to a pearl accented bail and suspends from an 18-inch chain. For a lovely bit of motion, three pearls dangle below. Sublime. Hand fabricated in 12K gold, circa 1900. New 14K gold chain measures 18 inches.

About Art Nouveau Jewelry

Looking to go organic? Bummed out (with good reason) by the Industrial Revolution, Art Nouveau makers embraced the natural world and a return to the hand-craftsmanship of an earlier time. Their overlap with both the Victorian and Edwardian eras resulted in a great deal of cross-pollination. Though relatively short in its purest form, Art Nouveau’s flowing lines continued to weave their way into fine jewelry.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
